1. (12 points) For each of the series below, write AC if the series converges absolutely, CC if the series converges conditionally and D if the series diverges. Please circle your answer and briefly justify it — that is, tell which tests you are using to back up your conclusions. (You do not need to work out all the details explicitly.) (a) X n =1 ( - 1) n cos( ) n (b) X n =1 ( - 1) n (ln 2) n (c) X n =1 ( - 1) n +1 (2 n )! 5 n · n ! · n ! (d)

Unformatted text preview: X n =1 (-1) n +1 ( n √ e-1) 2. (10 points) Find the second-order Taylor polynomial of the function f ( x ) = 3 √ x near x = 8. Compute the approximate value of 3 √ 10 given by this polynomial. (Leave your answer in fraction form, but simplify it.) 3. (8 points) For which values of x does the power series ∞ X n =2 ( x-4) n n ln 2 n converge? Justify your answer. 4. (10 points) (a) State (or compute) the Taylor series centered at 0 of f ( x ) = ln(1 + x ). (b) State (or compute) the Taylor series centered at 0 of g ( x ) = 1 1 + x 2 . (c) Compute the first four nonzero terms of the Taylor series centered at 0 of h ( x ) = ln(1 + x ) 1 + x 2 . 5. (10 points) Compute the following limits: (a) lim x → sin 3 x (1-cos 2 x ) e x 3-1 (b) lim x →∞ x 2 ± e-1 /x 2-1 ²...
