We do this by first using √ the double angle formula for sin 2θ and cos θ = 1 − x2 to obtain 1 − x2 dx = 1 sin−1 x − x 2 1 − x2 + C. √ Similar trigonometric substitutions result for integrands involving 1 + x2 √ and x2 − 1. 6. The simplification of the given form is then obtained using trigonometric identities. 5. 17. Evaluate 0 x2 + 4 dx. Let x = 2 tan θ. Then, dx = 2 sec2 θ dθ and x2 + 4 = 4 tan2 θ + 4 = 2 sec θ. So, the integral becomes 2 0 x2 + 4 dx = 4 π/4 0 sec3 θ dθ. 5: Geometric relations used in trigonometric substitution.

N ρ = lim 1| x | = | x | < 1. 1 1− x n = ∑∞ n =0 x . n→∞ Thus, we find that we have absolute convergence for | x | < 1. Setting x = 1 or x = −1, we find that the resulting series do not converge. So, the endpoints are not included in the complete interval of convergence. In this example we could have also used the Ratio Test. Thus, 1 | x | = | x | < 1. n→∞ 1 We have obtained the same result as when we used the nth Root Test. 35. Find the radius of convergence of the series ∑∞ . n =1 n In this example, we have an expansion about x = 2.

However, this particular series is already familiar to us. It is a geometric series. Note that each term is gotten from the previous one through multiplication by r = x. The first term is a = 1. 92), we have that the sum of the series is given by ∞ 1 ∑ xn = 1 − x , |x| < 1. 2]. 2]. 0 In this case we see that the sum, when it exists, is a simple function. In fact, when x is small, we can use this infinite series to provide approximations to the function (1 − x )−1 . If x is small enough, we can write (1 − x ) −1 ≈ 1 + x.
