Which of the following are true statements? (Zero or more options can be correct)
a)
Any function f(x) is equal to its Taylor series for all real x.
b)
There exist functions f(x) which are equal to their Taylor series for all real x.
c)
There exist functions f(x) which are equal to their Taylor series for some, but not all, real numbers x.
d)

The simplest possible cartesian form of 8eiπ is Exactly one option must be correct)
a)
8
b)
8π
c)
8 i
d)
8i
e)
8

Choice (a) is incorrect
Choice (b) is incorrect
Choice (c) is incorrect
Choice (d) is incorrect
Choice (e) is correct!
Note eiπ = cosπ + isinπ = 1 + 0i so 8eiπ = 8.
If z = 1 + i then z expressed in exponential notation equals Exactly one option must be correct)
a)
2cis π 4
b)
2ei3π4
c)
1 2eiπ4
