When I throw it at Octave online, I get: So it seems it is none of the above, but the answer $3$ is close. For reference, I have re-encoded...

Hey mathmari!! This is an example where Newton-Raphson can have problems if we are not careful. If we pick a starting value that is too far from...

I substituted $n=\frac 1{x^2}$, which also means that $x^2=\frac 1 n$. So we get $\Big(1 + \frac 32 x^2\Big)^{1/x^2} = \Big(1 + \frac 32 \cdot \frac... 7 replies | 228 view(s) • April 5th, 2020, 09:14 It's like this: $$\Big(1-\frac 12 x^2 + \ldots\Big)\Big(1+\frac 12 (2x)^2 - \ldots\Big)\\ =1\cdot 1 -\frac 12 x^2 \cdot 1+1\cdot \frac 12 (2x)^2 -... 7 replies | 228 view(s) • April 5th, 2020, 07:04 The series expansion of \cos x = 1 - \frac 12x^2 + \ldots.

If$f(x)=x$, then$f'(x)=1$and$f''(x)=0$. So$\lim\limits_{x\to +\infty}f'(x)\ne 0$, isn't it?... 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 30th, 2020, 04:35 mathmari replied to a thread Limits & properties in Analysis Ok!! As for the second question, why is the limit always zero? (Wondering) 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 30th, 2020, 04:26 Yep. (Nod) And no, nothing more specific. 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 30th, 2020, 03:57 mathmari replied to a thread Limits & properties in Analysis OK, so it's graph is a decreasing function, right? Or can we say something more specifically? (Wondering) 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 30th, 2020, 03:32 I believe so yes. Consider$f(x)=\ell$. It satisfies all conditions, doesn't it? (Wondering) And it is monotone instead of strictly monotone. To... 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 17:21 mathmari replied to a thread Limits & properties in Analysis I don't see how we get the strict inequality. Is maybe the result wrong and it should be monotone instead of strictly monotone? (Wondering) 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 14:38 Indeed. (Thinking) 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 14:31 mathmari replied to a thread Limits & properties in Analysis Ok! That means that$f$is monotone and escpecially descreasing, right? To get that$f$is strictly monotone, do we have to get$f'(x)<0$instead of... 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 14:26 Yep. (Nod) 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 14:18 mathmari replied to a thread Limits & properties in Analysis Yes, because then from$\ell\geq f(y)+f'(y)(+\infty-y)$we get$-\infty$at the right side of the inequality, and so$\ell$can be real. ... 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 13:57 Then the inequality also holds yes. What if fill in, say,$f'(y)=-1$in the inequality? Would it satisfy it? (Wondering) 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 13:52 mathmari replied to a thread Limits & properties in Analysis Ah$(-\infty)\cdot (+\infty)$is also an undefined form, isn't it? So$f'(y)$is either$0$or$-\infty$, right? (Wondering) 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 13:19 That is a possibility yes. What happens if$f'(y)$is negative? (Wondering) 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 13:14 mathmari replied to a thread Limits & properties in Analysis So that we get that$\ell$is not infinity we have to get an undefined form, one such form is when infinity is multiplied with zero, so$f'(y)$must... 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 13:08 We have an expression with$f(y)$,$f'(y)$, and$\ell$. And we already know that$\ell\in\mathbb R$, don't we? So it can't be$\pm\inftyeither. ... 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 12:28 mathmari replied to a thread Limits & properties in Analysis So we have the following: \begin{align*}f(x)\geq f(y)+f'(y)(x-y)&\Rightarrow \lim_{x\rightarrow +\infty}f(x)\geq \lim_{x\rightarrow... 21 replies | 467 view(s) • March 29th, 2020, 10:27 Ah okay.
