Use Normal

Series[1/(1 - x), {x, 0, 4}] // Normal

x^4 + x^3 + x^2 + x + 1

I expand a function as a Series[] but the O[] part prevents Solve[] from
working. I try Part[] and it returns something which also confuses
Solve[]. First[] works, but produces useless results, but this is why I am
sure this is what I want to do.
