Worksheet: Maclaurin Series

In this worksheet, we will practice finding Maclaurin series of a function and finding the radius of convergence of the series.

Q1:

Consider the function 𝑓 ( 𝑥 ) = 𝑒 .

Find 𝑓 ( 𝑥 ) .

  • A 𝑒 𝑥 l n
  • B 𝑒
  • C 𝑒 𝑥 l n
  • D 𝑒
  • E l n 𝑥

Find 𝑓 ( 𝑥 ) ( ) , where 𝑓 ( ) represents the 𝑛 th derivative of 𝑓 with respect to 𝑥 .

  • A 𝑒
  • B 𝑒 𝑥 + 𝑒 ( 1 ) 𝑛 2 𝑥 ( ) l n for 𝑛 > 1
  • C ( 1 ) 𝑛 2 𝑥 ( ) for 𝑛 > 1
  • D 𝑒
  • E 𝑒 𝑥 + 𝑒 ( 1 ) 𝑛 2 𝑥 ( ) l n for 𝑛 > 1

Hence, derive the Maclaurin series for 𝑒 .

  • A 𝑒 = 𝑓 ( 𝑎 ) ( 𝑥 𝑎 ) 𝑛 ( )
  • B 𝑒 = 𝑥 𝑛
  • C 𝑒 = 𝑥 𝑛
  • D 𝑒 = 𝑒 𝑛
