    about zero i hope first term is \(f(0)=1\)

    first derivative is \[f'(x)=\frac{3-x}{2\sqrt{1-x}^3}\] so second term is \[f'(0)x=\frac{3}{2}x\]

    looks like it is \[f''(x)=\frac{7-x}{4\sqrt{1-x}^5}\]

    making the next term \[\frac{f''(0)}{2}x^2=\frac{7}{8}x^2\]

    \[f'^{(3)}(x)=\frac{33-3x}{8\sqrt{1-x}^7}\]

    if so then \(\frac{f^{(3)}(0)}{3!}x^3=\frac{33}{16}x^3\)
