Problem 4E

How do you find the interval of convergence of a Taylor series?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 4E

Step 1:

General  expression of Taylor series of  a function f(x) centered at ‘a’ is ;   = f(a) + (x-a) +  +  +.............

Consider , =  . contains factorial notation . So , in this cases we can use  ‘ratio test ‘ to find the  interval convergence of a Taylor series.

By , the ratio test ;

If  P = | | < 1 ,  then the series converges.

And if  P > 1 , then the series diverges .

If P = 1, then the test is inconclusive.

Consider, P = |x|

The ratio test tells us now that the series  will converges as long as |x| < 1 . It also tells us that the series will diverges for |x| > 1.

The biggest interval ( it is always an interval ) where a Taylor series is convergent is called interval of convergence of the Taylor series . The interval of convergence is always centered at the center of  the Taylor series .
