Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Looks like a Maclaurin Series bro.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol\[f(x) = \sum_{n = 0}^{\infty}\dfrac{{f^n}(0)}{n!}x^n\]Definitely not a Maclaurin.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Why not use: \[ \Large e^{x} = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty } \frac{x^n}{n!} \implies e^{x^2} = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty } \frac{(x^2)^n}{n!} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4@ParthKohli you're allowed to make command shortcuts, but I think it only works for your own post.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1don't expand that series ... just integrate inside summation sign.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there 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.
