You can take the Taylor Series Expansion, but I am not so sure what you mean by for what values of x does it equal the function. In theory all values of x should equal the function so long as the series converge.

Taylor Expansion at center x=0 would be 2+4 x+8 x^2+16 x^3+32 x^4+64 x^5+..

Hmm. Well the geometric progression a+ax^2+ax^3... converges to a/(1-x) when -1

Hmm...i think i get what you mean

Should be a+ax+a(ax)^2+a(ax)^3... Missed the x term all over lol

Sigh. Well the geometric progression a+ax+ax^2+ax^3... converges to a/(1-x) when -1

  • anonymous
so how did you come up w/ it converging to a/(1-x)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Its a geometric series. It's derived without calculus. It goes: Let a=1+x+x^2+x^3... So ax=x+x^2+x^3... a-ax=1. So a=1/(1-x) I said it only converges for -1
