Power series of ln(1+x)

  1. May 1, 2010 #1

    are the following power series equivalent?

    ln(1+x)=[tex]\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{(-1)^n n! x^{n+1}}{(n+1)!}[/tex]
    =[tex]\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{(-1)^n x^{n+1}}{n+1}[/tex]

    [tex]\frac{(-1)^n n! x^{n+1}}{(n+1)!}=\frac{(-1)^n x^{n+1}}{(n+1)!/n!}=\frac{(-1)^n x^{n+1}}{(n+1)}[/tex]
