Calculus Series
1. Show that if 0 S 51? S 1/2 then -2:17 S ln(1 – T) S -1?. Suggestion: Let
f(:17) : ln(1-:17). show that its first derivative is decreasing. calculate possible
derivative values for the X in question. invoke the l~���lean Value Theorem.
2. Given a sequence an. Where each 0 S an S 1/2. form the infinite product
00
W1 – an)
71:1
Each term in the product is between 0 and 1. so the partial products are
monotone decreasing. Using the result of the first problem. show that
