Power series. tell me if i'm on the right track.

  1. Jan 7, 2009 #1
    I have to find the power series f(x)= 3 / (2 -5x).

    I devided everything by 2 so I have (1/2) / (1 - 5x/2) = [tex]\sum[/tex] ar^n

    and then through some steps I have 15x^n / 2^n+1

    and I on the right track? How do I find the interval of convergence?

    To find the radius of convergence u might want to use the ratio test.

    shouldnt that 5/2 x be negative though? does that make a difference?
