Complex Analysis Singularities and Poles

Assume throughout that f is analytic, with a zero of order 42 at z=0.

(a)What kind of zero does f' have at z=0? Why?

(b)What kind of singularity does 1/f have at z=0? Why?

(c)What kind of singularity does f'/f have at z=0? Why?

for (a) I'm pretty sure it is a zero of order 41

for (b) I'm almost sure it is a pole of order 42

but for (c) I am not quite sure nor can I really explain any of a-c

 Since you arrived at a plausible answer, you must have some intuition for this. Explain it, and go back to the definitions if you need to. You must have some idea about the form of a holomorphic function with a zero of order 42.
 are my answers correct and how can i do (c)?

Okay, if some analytic function f has a zero of order n at z = a, then you can certainly write it as f(z) = (z-a)^n * h(z) where h is holomorphic, right? This much should at least be true even if all you had was a sensible notion of a zero of a function. So go from here to explain a)-c). It is NOT hard to work out the details.

 is it sufficient to say that f(z)=z^42*h(z) which implies that f'(z)=42z^41*g(z) so f'/f has an extra z on the bottom so there is a pole of order 1?
 Looks good, though you don't really need the g.
 what do you mean i don't need the g? i can't use h still correct?
