ANALYSIS EXERCISE 13–SOLUTIONS 1. For the function f ( t ) = t p write the Mean value theorem f ( x ) - f ( y ) = f 0 ( ξ )( x - y ), where x > ξ > y > 0, i.e. x p - y p = p - 1 ( x - y ). It is enough to notice that y p - 1 < ξ p - 1 < x p - 1 . 2. (a) lim x 1 x n - 1 x 2 - x = lim x 1 nx n - 1 2 x - 1 = n. (b) lim x 1 2 (1 - x ) m - x m (1 - x ) n - x n = lim x 1 2 m [ - (1 - x ) m - 1 - x m - 1 ] n [ - (1 - x ) n - 1 - x n - 1 ] = m n 2 n - m . (c) lim x 1 nx n +2 - ( n + 1) x n +1 + x ( x - 1) 2 = lim x 1 n ( n + 2) x n +1 - ( n + 1) 2 x n + 1 2( x - 1) = lim x 1 n ( n + 2)( n + 1) x n - n ( n + 1) 2 x n - 1 2 = n ( n + 1) 2 . 3. (a) f ( x ) = x 2 - 4 x - 9 , f 0 ( x ) = 2 x - 4 , f 00 ( x ) = 2, f (3) = - 12 , f 0 (3) = 2 , f 00 (3) = 2. Hence f ( x ) = - 12 + 2( x - 3) + ( x - 3) 2 . (b) f ( x ) = x 5 , f 0 ( x ) = 5 x 4 , f 00 ( x ) = 20 x 3 , f (3) ( x ) = 60 x 2 , f (4) ( x ) = 120 x, f (5) ( x ) = 120, f (3) = 243 , f 0 (3) = 405 , f 00 (3) = 540 , f (3) (3) = 540, f (4) (3) = 360 , f (5) (3) = 120. Hence f ( x ) = 243 + 405( x - 3) + 270( x - 3) 2 + 90( x - 3) 3 + 15( x - 3) 4 + ( x - 3) 5 . 4. (a) 1 - x + x 2

(a) No, since lim n →∞ a n 6 = 0. (b) Yes. Comparison test: √ n +1-√ n n = 1 n ( √ n +1+ √ n ) < 1 n 3 / 2 . (c) Yes. Use d’Alembert’s test. 7. (a) Comparison test and definition of the absolute convergence. (b) Note that | a n x n | ≤ a n . Then use comparison test. 1...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
