MATH 126 Midterm I Sample Problems Most of the following problems have appeared on my midterms or finals in the past. A. Find: i) D (arcsin( x 2 )); ii) sec(arcsin( 1– x 2 )); iii) e 5 x /2 dx e 2 x + e 3 x " . B. Determine if the following limits exist, including ± : i) cos( x )–cos(2 x ) cos(3 x )–cos(4 x ) as x 0; ii) (cos( x )) 1/ x 2 as x 0; iii) 1 x " # $ % x as x C. Find antiderivatives for: i) cos 4 ( x ); ii) (sec( x )tan( x )) 3 ; iii) x 3 ( x 2 + 1) 1/3 ; iv) x + x 3 1 + x 4 ; v) x 2 + 2 x 3 + 2 x 2 + 2 x ; vi) 1 e 3 x –1 ; vii) x 5 1 + x 2 ; viii) 1– x 2 x 4 ix) cos 2 ( x ) – cos 3 ( x ) D. Determine if the following exist, and if so find the value: i) lim t "# dx x 4 + x 2 1 t $ ; ii) lim t "# dx x 5/3 x 2 t $ ; iii) lim t "# dx x x 8 –1 2 1/4 t $ ; iv) lim t " 0 + ln 2 ( x ) dx t 1 # .
