[5 marks] (b) Explain how you would classify the point at in f nity (you need not carry out the calculations). [5 marks] (c) Explain how you would obtain a general solution of (1) about the point x = 1 . [10 marks] (d) Use the appropriate series expansion about the point x = 0 to determine two independent solutions to (1). Determine the radius of convergence of one of these series. [40 marks] 1...
