    From the MacLaurin Table: \[tan^{-1}(x)=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}(-1)^n\frac{x^{2n+1}}{2n+1}=x-\frac{x^3}{3}+\frac{x^5}{5}-\frac{x^7}{7}\]

    This is what I've come up with so far: \[x^2\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}(-1)^n\frac{(x^3)^{2n+1}}{2n+1}\]

    Hmmmm....could it be: \[x^2\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}(-1)^n\frac{(x^3)^{2n+3}}{2n+1}\]?

    I meant: \[\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}(-1)^n\frac{(x^3)^{2n+3}}{2n+1}\]

    I think both the first and third solutions you have are correct.

    Yes! So this would be correct? \[\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}(-1)^n\frac{(x^3)^{2n+3}}{2n+1}\]

    Looks good to me. If you wanted to, you could also say\[(x^3)^{2n+3}=x^{6n+9}\]
