I want a desired number of terms in the Taylor series expansion of a function. How can I write the query for this? Presently whenever I write it, it stops after a few number of terms.

For example, here is the expansion for sin x:


How to specify we want more terms than this?

P.S. The actual query.

You have to enter the query in a slightly modified form, which will accept a specific number of terms.

For example:

Series[Sin[x], {x, 0, 11}]

will produce the output

Taylor series to the 11th power

The final number within the query represents the nth power of the expansion.

Another example - A screengrab of a different number of terms:

Full Entry and Output to 9th power
