Please work out each of the given problems.
Credit will be based on the steps that you show towards the final answer.
Show your work.
PROBLEM 1 Please answer the following true or false.
If false, explain why or provide a counter example.
If true, explain why.
f(x) = x2 - x
then the tangent line to
f(x) at x = 2 is parallel to the line y
= 3x + 7.
x2 - 4
then f(x) is
continuous at x = -2
C) If a
function f has a limit L at x
= c, and f(c) = L, then the function is
differentiable at x = c.
PROBLEM 2 Explain in
your own words what the difference between continuity and differentiability is.
The graph of y = f(x) is
the following limits if they exist:
B) At what points is f(x)
C) At what points is f(x) not differentiable?
Evaluate the following limits if they exist.
PROBLEM 5 The amount of algae in Lake Tahoe over the past twenty years can be modeled by the function
A(t) = 200 e.06t
where t represents the time in years after 1968 and A
represents the kg of algae in the lake.
this model a differentiable function? Explain.
B) Use a
graphing calculator to graph this function.
Over what domain is this a reasonable model?
(with the assistance of your graph) the slope of the tangent line when t
= 20 and when t = 40.
do your answers from part C mean in terms of the algae in Lake Tahoe?
PROBLEM 6 Find dy/dx
for the following
PROBLEM 7 Use the limit definition of the derivative to find the derivative of
PROBLEM 8 Your research shows that the profit P in dollars from renting out x bicycles at your bicycle rental shop that you manage is given by
P = -.03x2 + 25x - 40
A. Find the additional profit when rentals increase from 25 to 26 units.
B. Find the marginal profit when x = 25.
