Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Find the value of lim x → 1 • f ( x ) g ( x ) 1 2 f ( x ) + 1 g ( x ) ‚ when lim x → 1 f ( x ) = 1 , lim x → 1 g ( x ) = 4 . Correct answer: 2 . 5 . Explanation: By properties of limits, lim x → 1 µ f ( x ) g ( x ) 1 2 f ( x ) + 1 g ( x ) ¶ = lim x → 1 ( f ( x ) g ( x ) 1) lim x → 1 (2 f ( x ) + 1 g ( x )) . But again by properties of limits, lim x → 1 ( f ( x ) g ( x ) 1) = ‡ lim x → 1 f ( x ) ·‡ lim x → 1 g ( x ) · 1 , while lim x → 1 (2 f ( x ) + 1 g ( x )) = 2 ‡ lim x → 1 f ( x ) · + 1 ‡ lim x → 1 g ( x ) · . Consequently, limit = 4 1 2 + 4 = 5 2 ≈  2 . 5 . keywords: limit, laws of limits 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Below are the graphs of functions f and g . 4 8 4 4 8 4 8 f : g : Use these graphs to determine lim x → 9 { f ( x ) + g ( x ) } . 1. limit = 7 2. limit = 0 3. limit = 3 4. limit = 4 correct 5. limit does not exist Explanation: From the graph it is clear that lim x → 9 { f ( x ) + g ( x ) } = 4 . (Don’t forget that for a limit to exist at a point, the left and right hand limits have to exist and coincide. So determine left and right hand limits separately and use limit laws.) keywords: limit of sum of functions, graph, limit 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Determine lim x → 2 n 1 x 2 2 x 2 2 x o . Tran, Tony – Homework 4 – Due: Sep 19 2007, 3:00 am – Inst: Samuels 2 1. limit = 2 2. limit = 1 2 correct 3. limit = 1 3 4. limit = 2 5. limit = 1 2 6. limit = 1 3 7. limit does not exist Explanation: After simplification we see that 1 x 2 2 x 2 2 x = x 2 x ( x 2) = 1 x , for all x 6 = 2. Thus limit = lim x → 2 1 x = 1 2 . keywords: analytic limit, difference rational functions, limit, common denominators 004 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Determine if lim x → 0+ 1 (1 / √ x ) 1 + (4 / √ x ) exists, and if it does, find its value. 1. limit does not exist 2. limit = 4 3. limit = 1 4 correct 4. limit = 1 4 5. limit = 4 Explanation: After simplification and cancellation 1 (1 / √ x ) 1+(4 / √ x ) = √ x 1 √ x + 4 . On the other hand, lim x → 0+ √ x = 0 , and so √ x 1 √ x + 4 = 1 4 by Properties of Limits. Consequently, the given limit exists and limit = 1 4 . keywords: analytic limit, quotient radicals, keywords: 005 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Determine if lim x → 1+ p 9 x 2 exists, and if it does, find its value. 1. limit = 2 √ 2 correct 2. limit = √ 11 3. limit = 1 4. limit does not exist 5. limit = √ 10 6. limit = 3 7. limit = 0 Explanation: For x near 1 the inequality 9 x 2 > 0 holds, so f ( x ) = p 9 x 2 is well defined for such x . Consequently, by Properties of Limits, the right hand limit lim x → 1+ p 9 x 2 Tran, Tony – Homework 4 – Due: Sep 19 2007, 3:00 am – Inst: Samuels...
