Note that if C ( x ) is the series n c n x n , then its derivative C ( X ) is n ( n + 1) c n + 1 x n . (a) (2 points) Using the usual rules from Calculus, show that A ( x ) B ( x ) = 3 A ( x ) B ( x ). (b) (2 points) Assuming that [ x k ] A ( x ) = a k and [ x k ] B ( x ) = b k , compute formulas for the coefcient of x n in A ( x ) B ( x ) and in A ( x ) B ( x ). (c) (5 points) Apply the previous material with B ( x ) = (1x )1 to compute the rst three coefcients of (1x )1/3 . 5. (5 points) Solve the recurrence equation: b n3 b n14 b n2 + 12 b n3 = where b = 1, b 1 = 7, b 2 = 9....
