4. The Taylor series centred about $x = c$ for the function $f(x)$ is

Moderator edit: Sorry, Prove It. The formula is deleted. If the OP is working on a question like this, then surely s/he has studied it at some stage ...... s/he can refer to the formula in class notes or textbook, or can use Google.

What value do you think $c$ is in this case?

Once you have found the Taylor series, then you need to find its interval of convergence.

Sorry, but this is a lazy question. If you are attempting questions that require the formula, then surely it is in your class notes or textbook - I suggest you look harder. Alternatively, surely you can use Google.
