I have calculated it and got the answer but for the first equation with the division the little o is (x^3), I believe and for the equation being multiplied by sin, little o is (x^4)
For my answer do I add little o(x^4)?
Sometimes there are functions that are initially defined for only integer values of the argument, but can be extended to functions of real variable by some obvious way. An example of this is the factorial ##n!## which is extended to a gamma function by a convenient integral definition.
So, if I...
Hello,
I'm supposed to calculate the limit of this:
\lim_{{x}\to{1}}\left(\frac{x}{x-1}-\frac{1}{\ln x}\right)
Combining the fractions:
\frac{x}{x-1}-\frac{1}{\ln x} = \frac{x\ln x-x+1}{(x-1)\ln x}
The substitute
u=x-1 \implies x=1+u
then gives...

I need to find the Maclaurin series for
$$f(x) = x^2e^x$$
I know
$$e^x = \sum_{n = 0}^{\infty} \frac{x^n}{n!}$$
So, why can't I do
$$x^2 e^x =x^2 \sum_{n = 0}^{\infty} \frac{x^n}{n!} = \sum_{n = 0}^{\infty} \frac{x^2 x^n}{n!} $$
I need to find the function for this Maclaurin series
$$1 - \frac{5^3x^3}{3!} + \frac{5^5x^5}{5!} - \frac{5^7x^7}{7!} ...$$
I can derive this sigma:
$$1 + \sum_{n = 2}^{\infty} \frac{(-1)^{n - 1} 5^{2n - 1} x^{2n - 1}}{(2n - 1)!}$$
But I'm not sure how to get this function from this series.
I need to find the maclaurin series of the function

I need to find the Maclaurin series for
$$f(x) = e^{x - 2}$$
I know that the maclaurin series for $f(x) = e^x$ is

If I substitute in $x - 2$ for x, I would get
$$\sum_{n = 0}^{\infty} \frac{(x - 2)^n}{n!}$$
However, this is wrong, according to the...
I need to find the Maclaurin series of this function:
$$f(x) = ln(1 - x^2)$$
I know that $ln(1 + x)$ equals

Or, $x - \frac{x^2}{2} + \frac{x^3}{3} ...$

I'm examining the Maclaurin series for $f(x) = ln(x + 1)$.
It is fairly straightforward but there are a few details I'm not getting.

which equals:
$A + x - \frac{x^2}{2}$ etc. or $A + \sum_{n = 1}^{\infty}(-1)^{n - 1}\frac{x^n}{n}$
