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

What is [tex]\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{\frac{1}{(2n)!}}[/tex]?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]e^x[/tex] = [tex]\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{\frac{x^n}{n!}}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I understand that the given series looks like the series for e^1 but I know that isn't the correct answer. The answer (without solution) was supplied as (1/2)(e+e^-1). I can't seem to figure out the extra e^-1 part. Help?
