Converges to $\dfrac{2}{x-1}$ for all $|\dfrac{3-x}{2}| \lt 1$ or, $1 \lt x \lt 5$

Work Step by Step

The sum of a geometric series can be found as: $S=\dfrac{a}{1-r}$ We have a convergent geometric series with first term, $a=1$ and common ratio $r =\dfrac{3-x}{2}$ $S=\dfrac{1}{1-(\dfrac{3-x}{2})}=\dfrac{2}{x-1}$ Hence, the given series converges to $\dfrac{2}{x-1}$ for all $|\dfrac{3-x}{2}| \lt 1$ or, $1 \lt x \lt 5$
