Let us have a look at

We have

and thus

That means that

So the radius of convergence is 2.

For the interval of convergence we need to look at the endpoints. We have

and

None of these are convergent. So the interval is all *x* such that|*x*|<2.

The figure below shows the graph of this calculated with 150 terms.
