Finding radius and interval of convergence of a Taylor series

Sometimes we’ll be asked for the radius and interval of convergence of a Taylor series. In order to find these things, we’ll first have to find a power series representation for the Taylor series.

Using the comparison test to determine convergence or divergence

The comparison test for convergence lets us determine the convergence or divergence of the given series by comparing it to a similar, but simpler comparison series. We’re usually trying to find a comparison series that’s a geometric or p-series, since it’s very easy to determine the convergence of a geometric or p-series.
