\[f(x)=cosh(x)=1+0+\frac{x^2}{2!}+0+\frac{x^4}{4!}+....\]
Maclaurin's
I'm having some trouble writing this in summation form
\[\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{f^(0)}{n!}x^(n)\]
I know that:
All even #'s can be written as 2n
All odd #'s can be written as 2n+1
\[\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{...x^{(2n+1)}}{(2n+1)!}\] I think?
so how do I write the \[f^n (0)\] correctly?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1these are even values of the exponent, so we use the other formula with the 2n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1besides that you have written all there is to the series; there is nothing in front of each term that you are missing in your sigma notation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yup try out some values of n plug in n=0 n=1 n=2 etc. you will see you get your series

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your table is for the coefficients, and it should tell you that you are keeping only even exponents, hence you use 2n for the exponent and factorial

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so there you have it\[\cosh x=\sum_{n=0}^\infty{x^{2n}\over (2n)!}\]a nice, simple series representation
