Worksheet • 4 Questions

Q1:

The function can be represented by the power series . Use the first two terms of this series to find an approximate value of to 2 decimal places.

Q2:

Consider 𝑓 ( π‘₯ ) = ( 2 βˆ’ π‘₯ ) l n .

Find a power series representation for 𝑓 ( π‘₯ ) .

  • A 𝑓 ( π‘₯ ) = ( 2 ) βˆ’ ο„š π‘₯ 2 ( 𝑛 + 1 ) l n ∞ 𝑛 = 0 𝑛 + 1 𝑛 + 1
  • B 𝑓 ( π‘₯ ) = ( 2 ) + ο„š π‘₯ 2 ( 𝑛 + 1 ) l n ∞ 𝑛 = 1 𝑛 + 1 𝑛 + 1
  • C 𝑓 ( π‘₯ ) = ( 2 ) + ο„š ο€» π‘₯ 2  l n ∞ 𝑛 = 0 𝑛 + 1
  • D 𝑓 ( π‘₯ ) = ( 2 ) βˆ’ ο„š ο€» π‘₯ 2  l n ∞ 𝑛 = 1 𝑛 + 1
