Summer 2007: Term A Midterm Examination 1 June 15th, 2007 Namez. ‘ AMWM Key * Student ID: Instructions:
0 There are 9 questions and 100 points total. 0 In order to get full credit, you should show all your work instead of putting down the
answers. A correct answer with no work will receive no credit. Please make your
ﬁnal answer clear by writing legibly and place a box around it. 0 If you are unable to do a problem, you can get partial credit for explaining where you
got stuck — doing so will help us to better understand what you know. 0 If you need a scratch paper, please raise your hand during the exam period. 0 The questions begin from the back of this page. Don’t turn this page until you are told
to do so. ' 0 You have 95 minutes to complete the exam (12:45 — 2:20 PM). Good Luck. On my honor, as a University of Colorado at Boulder student; I have neither given nor
received unauthorized assistance on this work. Signature: I Date: 06/15/07 \\ l. (10 points) Compute the following limits.
