Unformatted text preview: M408C Calculus 55815/20/25 Fall 2002 Midterm 2 Review Problems and Solutions The exam will cover the following sections of Salas and Hilles Calculus , 8th edition: 4.34.8, 5.15.7, 6.1 1. Find the critical numbers and classify the extreme values (a) f ( x ) = x p 4- x 2 (b) f ( x ) = tan x- 2 x,- 3 x < 2 Solution. (a) First of all, the domain of f is the interval [- 2 , 2]. Next, f ( x ) = p 4- x 2 + x - x 4- x 2 = 4- x 2- x 2 4- x 2 = 2(2- x 2 ) 4- x 2 for x (- 2 , 2). Hence the critical points are solutions of f ( x ) = 0 x = 2. Using the method of intervals we find also that f < 0 in (- 2 ,- 2) , f > 0 in (- 2 , 2) , f < 0 in ( 2 , 2) . Thus x =- 2 endpoint max f (- 2) = 0 x =- 2 local min f (- 2) =- 2 x = 2 local max f ( 2) = 2 x = 2 endpoint min f (2) = 0 Also, we see that x =- 2 is absolute minimum and x = 2 is absolute maximum. (b) Find the derivative f ( x ) = sec 2 x- 2 , x (- / 3 ,/ 2) Thus the critical points are solutions of f ( x ) = 0 sec x = 2 x = / 4....
