MIDTERM 3 — MATH 141 — FALL 2002 — BOYLE Use exactly ONE answer sheet per question (use the back of the sheet if needed). Put your name, your TA’s name and the question number on EACH page. Put a BOX around the Fnal answer to a question. No books, no notes, no calculators. Before handing in your test: on your Frst answer sheet, please copy the pledge, and sign. ———————————————————————————————————– 1. (25 points) (a) (10 points) Compute the sum of the following series. X n =1 5 1 2 · n +1 Determine whether the following series converge or diverge. Brie±y explain. ( b ) X n =1 ( - 1) n p 2 + (1 /n ) ( c ) X n =1 cos 2 ( n ) n 3 / 2 ( d ) X n =1 n ( n 3 + 1) 3 / 7 2.

(35 points) (a) (10 points) Determine whether the following series converges, and whether it converges absolutely. Justify both answers. X n =2 (-1) n (ln( n )) 2 (b) (10) Give an appropriate upper bound for the following truncation error: f f f X n =1 1 n 2-100 X n =1 1 n 2 f f f . (c) (8) Let f ( x ) = 1 + 2 x + 3 x 2 + 4 x 3 + 5 x 4 + . What is f (1 / 3)? (d) (7) Suppose you know that the power series n =1 a n x n converges at x = 3. Given this information, at which numbers in the following list can you be certain the series converges?-4 ,-3 ,-2 , , 1 4 , 2 , 4 4. (20 points) Let f ( x ) = cos( x ). (a) Find the fth Taylor polynomial p 5 ( x ) for f ( x ). (b) Assuming 0 < x < 2, show that | f ( x )-p 5 ( x ) | < . 1 ....
