# A double series with double factorials

Calculus Level 5

$\large \sum_{a=3}^\infty\sum_{b=0}^\infty\frac{(a-2)(2b+2)!!}{(2b+2a)!!} =\frac12\left(x+y\ e^{z/4}\right)$

The equation above holds true for some integers $$x,y$$ and $$z$$, compute $$y+z-x$$.

Notation: $$!!$$ denotes the double factorial.
