You do not need to check these computations, and YOU DO NOT NEED TO GRAPH THE FUNCTION f (x) either.

(5) given that f (0) = 1 and that the shaded region has area 2 Problem 9. (8 points) Find the slope of the tangent line to the curve (x  2y)3 = 2y 2 x  3 at the point (1, 1). Problem 10. (10 points) Write the following limit as an integral, and compute it. 1 n n lim 4n + 3 + n 4n + 6 + n 4n + 9 + ... + n 4n + 3(n  1) + n 4n + 3n n 5 Problem 11. (8 points) Knowing that 32 = 2 ( since 25 = 32), use linear approximation 5 to give an approximate value for 33 with 4 digits after the decimal point. Problem 12. (15 points) A rock is dropped into a lake and an expanding circular ripple results. When the radius of the ripple is 8 feet, the radius is increasing at the rate of 3 feet/second. At what rate is the area enclosed by the ripple changing at this time? Problem 13. (15 points) An ant colony grows in such a way that, t days after we began observing it, the number of ants increases at the rate of 4t2 + 30 individuals per day. If it started with 1000 ants, how many will there be after 30 days? Problem 14. (15 points) Somewhere in the Middle West, two roads go very straight and meet in the city of Troyville. The first road runs SouthNorth, while the second road runs EastWest. A truck is moving South on the first road at the constant speed of 60 miles per hour and, at noon, is just 100 miles north of Troyville. A car drives East on the second road at the speed of 80 miles per hour and, at noon, is exactly 50 miles East of Troyville. When is the car closest to the truck? Problem 15. (15 points) Bacteria grow in a Petri dish (namely a dish containing a solution of nutrients), in such a way that the area of the dish covered by the bacteria 1 increases exponentially. If it takes 1 day for the bacteria to cover of the dish, and 2 days 3 1 to cover of it, when will the dish be completely full? 2 3 ...
