1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the Power Series representing
g(x)=∫sin(x)/x


2. Relevant equations

sin(x)= x-(x^3/3!)+(x^5/5!)-(x^7/7!)


3. The attempt at a solution

I Havent attempted yet but was wondering if you start with the maclaurin series of sin(x)
then divide everything by x then integrate the entire summation

Yes, that's what you do.
