Homework Help: How do I determine if a function is analytic at x=a?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'm studying diff eq and I'm not sure how to show that a function is analytic at point x=a. I know that the definition says that a function p(x) is analytic if it has a Taylor series expansion at x=a, but not sure how to show it.

    Thank you for the help!
