Suppose that You have...

(1)

... and You derive it three times. You obtain...

(2)

Now if You know the McLaurin expansion of what is the procedure to obtain the McLaurin expansion of ?...

Kind regards

Because for is...

(1)

... deriving 'term by term' we have in sequence...

(2)

(3)

(4)

If necessary of course we can proceed further (Wink) ... so that we obtain in general...

(5)

Kind regards
