Name: _________________________________________ Section (assigned): ______ Section (attended): _______ Math 10A Practice Midterm 1 February 1, 2008 Notes allowed (one page), graphing calculators allowed, show all work 50 points total, each problem worth 10 points 1. If possible, choose a constant k so that the following function is: a. Continuous on any interval: h x ( ) = x 3 " 3 x 2 + 2 x x " 2 x # 2 k + 1 x = 2 $ % b. Differentiable at x = 0 : g x ( ) = x x < 0 x 2 + kx x " 0 # $ % % 2. We are given a position function of an object as s ( t ) = 2 t . a. Find the average velocity of the object on the intervals [2, 2.1], [2, 2.01], and [2,2.001]. t 2 2.001 2.01 2.1 f t ( ) 4 4.00277355 4.0278222 4.28709385 b. Estimate the instantaneous velocity at t = 2 using your answer in part (a).
