12.8. Power Series Find the radius of convergence and interval of convergence of the series. 10. X n =1 x n n 3 n solution: If a n = x n n 3 n , then lim n →∞ | a n +1 a n | = lim n →∞ | x n +1 ( n + 1)3 n +1 n 3 n x n | = lim n →∞ | xn ( n + 1)3 | = | x | 3 lim n →∞ n n + 1 = | x | 3 . By the Ratio test, the series converges when | x | 3 < 1. That is, | x | < 3. So, R = 3. When x = - 3, the series is the alternating harmonic series, which converges by the Alter- nating Series test. When x = 3, it is the harmonic series, which diverges. Thus, the interval of convergence is [ - 3 , 3). 14. X n =0 ( - 1) n x 2 n (2 n )! . solution: a n = ( - 1) n x 2 n (2 n )! , so lim n →∞ | a n +1 a n | = lim n →∞ | x | 2 n +2 (2 n + 2)! · (2 n )! | x | 2 n = lim n →∞ | x | 2 (2 n + 1)(2 n + 2) = 0 Thus, by the Ratio test, the series converges for all real x and we have R = and the interval of convergence ( -∞ , ). 12.9.
