MathSofiya Group Title

\[f(x)=cosh(x)=1+0+\frac{x^2}{2!}+0+\frac{x^4}{4!}+....\] 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?

    these are even values of the exponent, so we use the other formula with the 2n

    besides 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

    yup try out some values of n plug in n=0 n=1 n=2 etc. you will see you get your series

    you do not need to represent the 0 terms

    you only need to represent the resulting series

    your 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

    that agrees with your results doesn't it?

    so there you have it\[\cosh x=\sum_{n=0}^\infty{x^{2n}\over (2n)!}\]a nice, simple series representation

    \[f(x)=cosh(x)=1+\frac{x^2}{2!}+\frac{x^4}{4!}+....=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{x^{(2n)}}{(2n)!}\] final answer. Very good, THankss!
