    I'm not sure how to turn the integral into the infinite series,

    Looks like a Maclaurin Series bro.

    lol\[f(x) = \sum_{n = 0}^{\infty}\dfrac{{f^n}(0)}{n!}x^n\]Definitely not a Maclaurin.

    looks like the series is \[ \frac{x^{2n+1}}{n!(2n+1)} \]

    Why not use: \[ \Large e^{x} = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty } \frac{x^n}{n!} \implies e^{-x^2} = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty } \frac{(-x^2)^n}{n!} \]

    It's really easy to find the anti derivative

    the part that threw me off was that there wasn't an alternating - +

    oh dear i made an error in the question , it should be alternating , like you say @wio

    What is all this `\newcommand` thing? Are we allowed to introduce new variables in MathJax?

    @ParthKohli you're allowed to make command shortcuts, but I think it only works for your own post.

    don't expand that series ... just integrate inside summation sign.

    there are many cases where you have to change functions into infinite series to evaluate integral with real methods. I think ... expanding the series will just mess up.
