(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Show, from the definition of continuity, that the power series function f(x)=sum(a_n*x^n) is continuous for its radius of convergence.

2. Relevant equations

Definition of continuity

3. The attempt at a solution

Must show that for any |a| < R, given e>0 there exists d>0 such that |x-a|<d => |f(x) - f(a)|.

|f(x)-f(a)| < e.

|f(x) - f(a)| <= |f(x-a)|

Then I get stuck here.

Any help would be appreciated
