    Problem: Find the value of b for which 21.JPG

    2. Relevant equations

    Power series for (1/1+x) or in this case, power series for (1/1+b)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I keep getting ln (-5/6) as the answer, but apparently the correct answer is ln (5/6). I do not see why.

    Please look at my work and tell me what I am doing wrong.
