I'd approach it like this . . .Find the Maclaurin expansion for

Then: . . . . . . etc.
Find the Maclaurin expansion for using the double angle identity for cos2x and cos4x.
This is how i worked out so far, yet i'm not sure whether it is correct or not
Identity of cos4x = cos(2x + 2x) = cos2x.cos2x + sin2x.sin2x
using the identity of
which equals to
If it is correct i'm not sure whether to continue with the problem or not, this question has 8 marks...and i'm puzzled.. if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!
thanks in advance
