What is Radius of convergence: Definition and 140 Discussions
In mathematics, the radius of convergence of a power series is the radius of the largest disk in which the series converges. It is either a non-negative real number or
∞
{\displaystyle \infty }
. When it is positive, the power series converges absolutely and uniformly on compact sets inside the open disk of radius equal to the radius of convergence, and it is the Taylor series of the analytic function to which it converges.

I have some problems finding the correct result
My solution:
I puted Y=6x+16
so now will try to find the raduis of convergence of Y
so let's calculate the raduis criteria of convergence:
We know that Y=6x+16
Conseqyently -21/6<=x<=-11/6 so the raduis must be 5/3. But this is not...
