The other way is to find the Taylor series of each individual function: $\displaystyle x = 1 + (x  1)$ $\displaystyle \cos( 2 \pi x) \approx 1 + 2 \pi^2 (x  1)^2 + \text{ ... }$ Multiply the two expressions and discard the term in (x  1)^3 and you'll get the expression for the whole thing given above.
