How do you find the Maclaurin Series for # f(x)= x sinx#?

Answer 1

#x sin x = x^2-x^4/(3!)+x^6/(5!)-...+(-1)^(n-1) x^(2n)/((2n-1)!)+...#

For sin x, the Maclaurin series is

#x -x^3/(3!)+x^5/(5!)-...+ (-1)^(n-1) x^(2n-1)/((2n-1)!)+...#. So,
#x sin x = x^2-x^4/(3!)+x^6/(5!)-...+(-1)^(n-1) x^(2n)/((2n-1)!)+...#

sin x is an odd function. So, x sin x is even #. And so,

The Maclaurin series is an even series, and f(x) = x sin x is an even function.

power series that is distinct, where f''(0)/(2!) = 1, f(0) = 0, and

Consequently, the series does not contain a constant term, and the coefficient of

#x^2# is 1. Thus, the Maclaurin series for
#x sin x = x^2-x^4/(3!)+x^6/(5!)-...+(-1)^(n-1) x^(2n)/((2n-1)!)+...#

To find the Maclaurin series for ( f(x) = x\sin(x) ), follow these steps:

  1. Recall the Maclaurin series for ( \sin(x) ): [ \sin(x) = x - \frac{x^3}{3!} + \frac{x^5}{5!} - \frac{x^7}{7!} + \dots ] This series expansion is derived from the Taylor series of ( \sin(x) ) centered at 0.

  2. Multiply each term of the ( \sin(x) ) series by ( x ): [ x\sin(x) = x^2 - \frac{x^4}{3!} + \frac{x^6}{5!} - \frac{x^8}{7!} + \dots ]

The resulting series is the Maclaurin series for ( f(x) = x\sin(x) ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
