Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Determine the radius of convergence, R , of the power series summationdisplay n = 1 8 x n n . 1. R = 2. R = 1 correct 3. R = 0 4. R = 1 8 5. R = 8 Explanation: The given series has the form summationdisplay n =1 a n x n with a n = 8 n . Now for this series, (i) R = 0 if it converges only at x = 0, (ii) R = if it converges for all x , while 0 < R < (iii) if it converges when | x | < R , and (iv) diverges when | x | > R . But lim n vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle a n +1 a n vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = lim n n n + 1 = 1 . By the Ratio Test, therefore, the given series (a) converges for all | x | < 1, and (b) diverges for all | x | > 1. Consequently, the given series has radius of convergence R = 1 . 002 10.0 points Find the interval of convergence of the se- ries summationdisplay n =1 x n n + 4 . 1. interval of cgce = ( 4 , 4] 2. interval of cgce = ( 1 , 1) 3. converges only at x = 0 4. interval of cgce = [ 1 , 1) correct 5. interval of cgce = [ 1 , 1] 6. interval of cgce = [ 4 , 4] Explanation: When a n = x n n + 4 , then vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle a n +1 a n vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle x n +1 n + 5 n + 4 x n vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = | x | parenleftbigg n + 4 n + 5 parenrightbigg = | x | radicalbigg n + 4 n + 5 . But lim n n + 4 n + 5 = 1 , so lim n vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle a n +1 a n vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = | x | . By the Ratio Test, therefore, the given series kim (tk5895) HW14 Henry (54974) 2 (i) converges when | x | < 1, (ii) diverges when | x | > 1. We have still to check what happens at the endpoints x = 1. At x = 1 the series becomes ( ) summationdisplay n =1 1 n + 4 . Applying the Integral Test with f ( x ) = 1 x + 4 we see that f is continuous, positive, and de- creasing on [1 , ), but the improper integral I = integraldisplay 1 f ( x ) dx diverges, so the infinite series ( ) diverges also. On the other hand, at x = 1, the series becomes ( ) summationdisplay n =1 ( 1) n n + 4 . which is an alternating series summationdisplay n = 1 ( 1) n a n , a n = f ( n ) with f ( x ) = 1 x + 4 the same continuous, positive and decreasing function as before. Since lim x f ( x ) = lim x 1 x + 4 = 0 , however, the Alternating Series Test ensures that ( ) converges....
