Geometric series are important examples of power series. Recall the formula
Σ
= 1/(1- r), valid for Ir<1. Writing x in place of r, we obtain a power se-
n-0
ries expansion with radius of convergence R = 1:

for x<1
2

The next two examples show that we can modify this formula to find the power series
expansions of other functions.
