What feature of the ODE explains your value for the radius of convergence of the series y2?

y2 is a series which satisfies the ODE and I found that it converges for [tex]\abs{2x^2} < 1[/tex].

2. Relevant equations

[tex]y2=x-\frac{2}{3}x^2-\frac{4}{15}x^5+ \cdots[/tex]

ODE: [tex](1-2x^2)\frac{d^2y}{dx^2} +4y = 0[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I presume this has something to do with the [tex](1-2x^2)[/tex] in the ODE but I'm not sure. Can someone help?
