Place the solution to each problem on a single, detachable piece of paper, which we can swap around. We will "correct" each others' essays in class.

Questions come from Advanced Placement Calculus tests as indicated.

Determine all values of \(x\) for which the series \( \displaystyle \sum_{k = 0}^{\infty} \frac{ 2^kx^k}{\ln {(k + 2)}}\) converges. Justify your answer.

Let \(f\) be the function given by \( \displaystyle f(t) = \frac{4}{1 + t^2}\) and \(G\) be the function given by \( \displaystyle G(x) = \int_0^x f(t) \, dt \).

- Find the first four nonzero terms and the general term for the power series expansion of \(f(t)\) about \(t = 0\).
- Find the first four nonzero terms and the general term for the power series expansion of \(G(x)\) about \(x = 0\).
- Find the interval of convergence of the power series in part (b). (Your solution must include an analysis that justifies your answer.)

Let \(f\) be a function that has derivatives of all orders for all real numbers. Assume \(f(1) = 3, f'(1) = -2, f''(1) = 2\), and \(f'''(1) = 4\).

- Write the second-degree Tayor polynomial for \(f\) about \(x = 1\), and use it to approximate \(f(0.7)\).
- Write the third-degree Tayor polynomial for \(f\) about \(x = 1\), and use it to approximate \(f(1.2)\).
- Write the second-degree Taylor polynomial for \(f'\), the derivative of \(f\), about \(x = 1\), and use it to approximate \(f'(1.2)\).

The Maclaurin series for \(f(x)\) is given by \(1 + \frac{x}{2!} + \frac{x^2}{3!} + \frac{x^3}{4!} + ... + \frac{x^n}{(n + 1)!} + ... \)

- Find \(f'(0)\) and \(f^{(17)}(0)\).
- For what values of \(x\) does the given series converge? Show your reasoning.
- Let \(g(x) = xf(x)\). Write the Maclaurin series for \(g(x)\), showing the first three nonzero terms and the general term.
- Write \(g(x)\) in terms of a familiar function without using series. Then, write \(f(x)\) in terms of the same familiar function.
