In class we were shown the following problem: Find a power series for: (4x)/(2+x) and determine the radius of convergence We worked it as a class and ended up with two opposing answers, and could not find an error in either set of work. The first set: The second set: Does anyone see an error in either of these? What is the answer to the problem? Thank you. Last edited by skipjack; May 11th, 2017 at 02:06 PM.

Your first answer suffices and is what is expected. Its radius of convergence is 2.
