    We know that, -1<x\leq 1
    \tan^{-1}x=x-\frac{x^3}{3}+\frac{x^5}{5}-...
    Know if you multiply this term by term for (1+x^2) we have,
    x-\frac{x^3}{3}+\frac{x^5}{5}-....+x^3-\frac{x^5}{3}+\frac{x^7}{5}-...
    x+\frac{2x^3}{3\cdot 1}-\frac{2x^5}{5\cdot 3}+\frac{2x^7}{7\cdot 5}-\frac{2x^9}{9\cdot 7}+...

    I just need to make the restriction,
    -1<x<1\, rather then the endpoint because the Cauchy product applies only for the interval of absolute convergence.
