    If you look at the series the third term of the series is where that answer starts.

    So what's the question if you have the terms?

    its more on how do you get to the terms rather than the answer itself. I guess the question is what are the steps

    I'm assuming you have the MacLaurin series in front of you right?

    I just have the question itself. The terms I gave are from a separate sheet used for reference.

    All you have to do is take the derivative a few times and begin to plug it into the equation
