# Thread: The degree- term in the Maclaurin polynomial

1. ## The degree- term in the Maclaurin polynomial

Hi, im having problems entering the n-th term of the equation

1/(1-x)

if im not wrong is should be (n-1)*x^(n-1)/(n-1)!

2. You are, sorry.

$\frac{1}{1-x} = 1+x+x^{2} + ... + x^{n-1} + ...$

Provided that $\displaystyle |x| < 1$...
