# Power series

## Homework Statement

I've attached the question

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not exactly sure how to do this question. Is it an interval of convergence question where i simply let log(1+2x) < 1 and solve for x??

It's actually more of a logic problem. They told you log(1+x) converges for |x|<1. So what's the range of convergence of log(1+2x)? You are overthinking this by quite a bit.

No. What I would do is find the power series for log(1 + 2x), which is simply a matter of a substitution, and then determine the interval of convergence of the new series.

BTW, calculus-type problems like this should not be posted in the Precalc section.

I don't think it's even much of a precalc question. See my previous post.

I agree that it's not a difficult problem, but being about series and convergence, it seems a better place for it is in the Calculus & Beyond section.
