Use Theorem 2 to show, for example, that the series has a radius of convergence , if and that has a radius of convergence , if  By making the appropriate assumptions, we can prove that the radius of convergence is for the given series respectively.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1:Check for the first series

Let the variable X2=Z, upon making the substitution the series becomes It is given that the ratio In general the radius of convergence is given by | x -x0 |=L .

In this case, the center point Z0 is 0, so it will be, ## Step 2: Check for the second series

Similarly for the series, We can re-write the equation as If the series that is formed by taking the x common is convergent then the complete series will also be convergent with the same radius of convergence.

Therefore, the series for which we need to calculate the radius of convergence is Let the variable x2 = z upon making the substitution the series becomes It is given that the ratio In general, the radius of convergence is given by

| x -x0 |=L

In this case, the center point Z0 is 0, so it will be By making the appropriate assumptions, we can prove that the radius of convergence is for the given series respectively. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
