Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What value of c is being asked for? Since I'm not given one, I'll just use c = 0. Anyway, start by taking a bunch of derivatives and evaluating them at x = 0. \[f(x)=e ^{9x/5}\] \[f'(x)=9/5e ^{9x/5}\] \[f''(x)=(9/5)^2e ^{9x/5}\] \[f'''(x)=(9/5)^3e ^{9x/5}\] When you evaluate these functions at x = 0, you will get f(0) = 1, f'(0) = 9/5, f''(0) = (9/5)^2, and f'''(0) = (9/5)^3. Use these as coefficients of your infinite sum of polynomial terms. \[P(x)=(9/5)^0x^0/0! + (9/5)^1x^1/1! + (9/5)^2x^2/2! + ...\] Rewrite this as an infinite series... \[P(x)=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}(9/5)^nx^n/n!\] Then, you can clean up a little bit to get your answer: \[P(x)=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}(9x/5)^n/n!\]
