    Power series representation

    Hey guys, I just had my first year calc II exam and this was the only question I wasn't able to answer and it's frustrating me.

    The question asks me to represent this function as a power series:

    f(x) = ((x-1)^6)e^(-(x-5)^5)

    Any help would be appreciated greatly.

    Thanks

    I dont think there was a point. I'm pretty sure that was the full question (unless i'm remembering incorrectly)
