Homework Help: Need some help to get started

  1. Nov 27, 2006 #1
    Consider the function

    f(x) = ln(1-x)

    a) compute the MacLaurin series of f(x) (ie: the Taylor series of f(x) around x=0)

    b) Compute the radius of convergence and determine the interval of convergence of the series in a)

    c) Determine the Taylor series of f'(x) around x=0. Can you do so without using a)?

    d) How would you have computed part a) if you had first done part c)?

    Thank you!
