Could someone confirm that the taylor series expansion for exp(-x) = 1 - x + x^2 - x^3 ?

Also if that were the case

what would be the solution for the equations in terms of z upto two terms of taylor series?

a = b + c*d ------ eqn 1
z = a + (e - a).* (1-exp(-x/l)) ----- eqn 2

where x is a matrix and b,c,d,e,l are constants

(hint : substitute a in eqn 2 )
