The Taylor series for f(x)=e^x at a = -3 is ∞ ∑ c(n)(x+3)^n n=0 Find the first few coefficients. Note: c(n) is c sub-index n. I'm trying to figure out the process by which these coefficients are found, please help!

So what coefficients did you get for this particular problem? I can only get the first two as e^(-3), and I need the first 5.
