You can't simply say that the expansion at infinity equals the expansion of at . That wouldn't make any sense.

But

so

Would that then be considered the expansion at infinity? And would it be valid for x >1?

RHS is true when |x|<1. Then LHS is true when 1/x goes to infinity.

Making substitution

y=1/x where y goes to infinity we get

this is what you get. - Jan 12th 2011, 02:22 PMRandom Variable
But for what values is the series valid? It would appear that it's valid for x=1.

It is valid for

and it follows that
