$\displaystyle x^5+x^8+\frac {x^{11}} {2!}+\frac {x^{14}} {3!}+ \frac {x^{17}} {4!}+....$

Finally, I am supposed to determine the values at the 1st and 11th term, again near $\displaystyle x = 0$.

Wouldn't both terms be 0 though since the value is dependent upon the x value, which is 0, or am I missing something? Thanks for the help.
