The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Rewrite the expression f ( x ) = 2 x- 1 x 2 ( x- 2) using partial fractions. 1. f ( x ) = 3 x- 1 2 x 2 + 3 4( x- 2) 2. f ( x ) = 1 2 x- 3 4 x 2- 3 4( x- 2) 3. f ( x ) =- 1 x 2 + 3 x- 2 4. f ( x ) = 1 x 2- 3 x- 2 5. f ( x ) =- 3 4 x + 1 2 x 2 + 3 4( x- 2) correct Explanation: We have to find A, B, and C so that 2 x- 1 x 2 ( x- 2) = A x + B x 2 + C x- 2 = Ax ( x- 2) + B ( x- 2) + Cx 2 x 2 ( x- 2) . Thus 2 x- 1 = Ax ( x- 2) + B ( x- 2) + Cx 2 . Now x = 0 = B = 1 2 , while x = 2 = C = 3 4 . But then on comparing coefficients of x 2 we see that A + C = 0 = A =- 3 4 . Consequently, f ( x ) =- 3 4 x + 1 2 x 2 + 3 4( x- 2) . keywords: partial fractions 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Find the unique function y satisfying the equations dy dx = 6 ( x- 3)(7- x ) , y (4) = 0 . 1. y = 3 2 ln fl fl fl x- 3 7- x fl fl fl + ln3 correct 2. y = 6 ln fl fl fl 7- x x- 3 fl fl fl- ln3 3. y = 6 ln fl fl fl x- 3 7- x fl fl fl + ln3 4. y = 3 2 ln fl fl fl 7- x x- 3 fl fl fl- ln3 5. y = 1 4 ln fl fl fl x- 3 7- x fl fl fl + ln3 Explanation: We first find A, B so that 6 ( x- 3)(7- x ) = A x- 3 + B 7- x by bringing the right hand side to a common denominator. In this case, 6 ( x- 3)(7- x ) = A (7- x ) + B ( x- 3) ( x- 3)(7- x ) , and so A (7- x ) + B ( x- 3) = 6 . To find the values of A, B particular choices of x are made When x = 3, for instance, A = 3 2 , while when x = 7, B = 3 2 . Thus dy dx = 3 2 1 x- 3 + 1 7- x . Miller, Kierste Homework 7 Due: Mar 6 2007, 3:00 am Inst: Gary Berg 2 Hence after integration, y = 3 2 n ln | x- 3 |- ln | 7- x | o + C = 3 2 ln fl fl fl x- 3 7- x fl fl fl + C with C an arbitrary constant. But y (4) = 0 = C =- 3 2 ln 1 3 , i.e. , C = 3 2 ln3 . Consequently, y = 3 2 ln fl fl fl x- 3 7- x fl fl fl + ln3 . keywords: partial fractions, log function 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Evaluate the integral I = Z 2 1 6 x 3 + x dx. 1. I = 6ln 8 5 2. I = 3 2 ln 8 5 3. I = 6ln 5 2 4. I = 3 2 ln 5 2 5. I = 3ln 8 5 correct 6. I = 3ln 5 2 Explanation: By partial fractions, 6 x 3 + x = A x + Bx + C x 2 + 1 . To determine A, B, and C multiply through by x 3 + 1 x : for then 6 = A ( x 2 + 1) + x ( Bx + C ) = ( A + B ) x 2 + Cx + 1 A, which after comparing coefficients gives A =- B , C = 0 , A = 6 . Thus I = 6 Z 2 1 1 x- x x 2 + 1 dx = 6 h ln x- 1 2 ln( x 2 + 1) i 2 1 = 3 h ln x 2 x 2 + 1 i 2 1 ....
