    Question Help with sinh and cosh

    I need help deriving the expression for:
    (a) sinhz/z^2 = 1/z + summation from n=0 to infinity z^2n+1/(2n+3)!
    0<|z|<infinity

    (b)z^3cosh(1/z) = z/2 + z^3 + summation from n=1 to infinity (1/(2n+2)!)*(1/z^2n-1) 0<|z|<infinity

    Im lost if anyone can help please!!!

    \sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{z^{2n+1}}{(2n+3)!}=\frac{  1}{z^2}\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{z^{2n+3}}{(2n+3)!}  =\frac{1}{z^2}(\sinh(z)-z)

    Same basic idea as the other, multiply the summation through by some power of z until the exponent of z in each term is +/- what is in the factorial. Then you will need some extra terms to make the sum the power series for sinh or cosh which when the sum is replaced by the hyperbolic function (which will be cosh in this case) you will need to subtract out the few terms you had to add to complete the series.
