    Mmm what is it using the sigma notation? I was thinking something like \[\sum_{0}^{\infty} (1/2)- \frac{ 1/2 (-1)^k (10x)^{2k} }{ (2k)! }\] but my homework says it's wrong? :/

    I think the 1/2 and the minus are outside the sigma.

    \[\frac{1}{2}-\frac{1}{2}\sum_{0}^{\infty}\frac{(-1)^{k}(10x)^{2k}}{(2k)!}\]
