(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the first three non-zero terms of the Taylor expansion about zero in each of the following cases:

a) (1+2x)^-1/4

b) sin(x^2)/x

2. The attempt at a solution

I don't even know where to begin. I've only just read about what Talyors expansion is, and I don't know what's meant by 'about zero'. If someone could show me some answers and the steps they took to arrive at them though, I'm sure I would learn a lot from it.
