# calculus-- need help desperately!

The Taylor series about x=5 for a certain function f converges to f(x) for all x in the interval of convergence. The nth derivative of f at x=5 is given by f^(n) (5)= (-1)^n(n!)/((2^n)(n+2)), and f(5)=1/2.
Write third degree Taylor polynomial for f about x=5. Then find the radius of convergence of the Taylor series for f about x=5.

Use the binomial series to find the Taylor series about 0 for the function f(x) = (1 + x)−3/5, giving all terms up to the one in x4. I have the answer; f(x)=1-3/5(x) +12/25(x^2) -52/125(x^3) + 234/625(x^4) but i am not sure how

use the definition of a taylor series to find the Taylor series (centeredat c) for the function. f(x)= 7/x c=1 so what is f(x) as n goes from 0 to infinity?

Use the ratio test to find whether the series diverges or converges. 1/5^n (1 to infinity) I think the limit converges to 1/5, so the series converges.
