Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points When f, g, F and G are functions such that lim x → 1 f ( x ) = 0 , lim x → 1 g ( x ) = 0 , lim x → 1 F ( x ) = 2 , lim x → 1 G ( x ) = ∞ , which, if any, of A. lim x → 1 f ( x ) g ( x ) ; B. lim x → 1 F ( x ) g ( x ) ; C. lim x → 1 g ( x ) G ( x ) ; are NOT indeterminate forms? 1. A only 2. B only correct 3. none of them 4. B and C only 5. A and C only 6. all of them 7. C only 8. A and B only Explanation: A. Since lim x → 1 f ( x ) g ( x ) = , this limit is an indeterminate form. B. By properties of limits lim x → 1 F ( x ) g ( x ) = 2 = 1 , so this limit is not an indeterminate form. C. Since lim x → 1 = ∞· , this limit is an indeterminate form. keywords: 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Determine if the limit lim x → 1 x 8 1 x 3 1 exists, and if it does, find its value. 1. none of the other answers 2. limit = 8 3 correct 3. limit = ∞ 4. limit =∞ 5. limit = 3 8 Explanation: Set f ( x ) = x 8 1 , g ( x ) = x 3 1 . Then lim x → 1 f ( x ) = 0 , lim x → 1 g ( x ) = 0 , so L’Hospital’s rule applies. Thus lim x → 1 f ( x ) g ( x ) = lim x → 1 f ( x ) g ( x ) . But f ( x ) = 8 x 7 , g ( x ) = 3 x 2 . Consequently, limit = 8 3 . Lescure, Etienne – Review 3 – Due: Dec 10 2007, 11:00 am – Inst: Diane Radin 2 keywords: L’Hospital’s rule, rational func tion, zero over zero 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Evaluate lim x →∞ x 2 e 5 x . 1. limit = ∞ 2. limit =∞ 3. limit = 0 correct 4. none of the other answers 5. limit = 1 5 6. limit = 1 Explanation: Since lim x →∞ x 2 e 5 x → ∞ ∞ , the limit is of indeterminate form, so we apply L’Hospital’s Rule: lim x →∞ x 2 e 5 x = lim x →∞ 2 x 5 e 5 x = ∞ ∞ . Applying L’Hospital’s Rule once again, there fore, we arrive at lim x →∞ x 2 e 5 x = lim x →∞ 2 25 e 5 x = 0 . keywords: 004 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Find the value of lim x →∞ µ 4 e 3 x + e 3 x 2 e 3 x 3 e 3 x ¶ . 1. limit = 2 2. limit = 2 correct 3. limit = 1 2 4. limit = 1 2 5. limit = 3 5 6. limit = 3 5 Explanation: After division we see that 4 e 3 x + e 3 x 2 e 3 x 3 e 3 x = 4 + e 6 x 2 3 e 6 x . On the other hand, lim x →∞ e ax = 0 for all a > 0. But then by properties of limits, lim x →∞ 4 + e 6 x 2 3 e 6 x = 2 . Consequently, limit = 2 ....
