For the following power series determine the interval of convergence S = (3x^2 ÷ 4 • 7) +( 5x^4 ÷ 7 • 9) + (7x^6 ÷10 • 11) + . . .

    Is it 3x^2/(4*7) OR (3x^2/4)*7?

    it is 3x^2/(4*7) AnwarA, I'm sorry i was doing other problems. I'll be waiting my friend

    Yes i know the basics like convergence and divergence based on the value 1

    Let me help you first with writing the series in its standard from; \[{3x^2 \over 4(7)}+{5x^4 \over 7(9)}+{7x^6 \over 10(11)}+...=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}{(2n+1)x^{2n} \over (3n+1)(2n+5)}\]

    That's good. Now do the test, and find the limit. Tell me what you get!

    Well, actually you will be left with |x|. Then your interval of convergence should be |x|<1. That's -1<x<1. Then you should test the endpoint -1 and 1.
