Classwork V Sections 3.1, 3.2 Prove that there is no line through the point (1 , 5) that is tangent to y = 4 x 2 . (Leithold 2.1.49). Compute the following using the definition of the derivative: d d x (2 x - 1) = d d x ( x 3 ) = D x ( x 2 - x ) = f 0 (2) where f ( x ) = 2 x - 1 . d g d x where g ( x ) = 3 x . (3.2.19). Suppose that the revenue R ( n ) in dollars from producing n computers is given by R ( n ) = . 4 n - . 001 n 2 . Find the instantaneous rates of change of revenue when n = 10 and n = 100. (The instantaneous rate of change of revenue with respect to the amount of product pro- duced is called the marginal revenue .) (3.1.20). Suppose a vendor selling turnips at a street fair offers a discount for quantity, so that the average cost per turnip when buying n < 30 turnips is C ( n ) = 4 - . 1 n . Find the marginal cost (the instantaneous rate of change of cost – note change of cost not change of average cost) when n = 10 turnips.
