Homework Help: Taylor series of sinz-sinhz

  1. Feb 19, 2012 #1
    I have to find the first three non zero terms of this series by hand. I know the answer and it is

    -(z^3/3) - z^7/2520 - z^11/19958400

    Which will take ages to get to by brute force. Is there a quicker way?

    The method I used was brutish. I didnt use the generalized form of the series for sin and sinh that I think youre referring to. I now am, and its faster. Thanks
