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 Rewrite the expression f ( x ) = 3 x 1 x 2 ( x 2) using partial fractions. 1. f ( x ) = 1 2 x 5 4 x 2 5 4( x 2) 2. f ( x ) = 5 4 x + 1 2 x 2 + 5 4( x 2) correct 3. f ( x ) = 5 x 1 2 x 2 + 5 4( x 2) 4. f ( x ) = 1 x 2 + 5 x 2 5. f ( x ) = 1 x 2 5 x 2 Explanation: We have to find A, B, and C so that 3 x 1 x 2 ( x 2) = A x + B x 2 + C x 2 = Ax ( x 2) + B ( x 2) + Cx 2 x 2 ( x 2) . Thus 3 x 1 = Ax ( x 2) + B ( x 2) + Cx 2 . Now x = 0 = B = 1 2 , while x = 2 = C = 5 4 . But then on comparing coefficients of x 2 we see that A + C = 0 = A = 5 4 . Consequently, f ( x ) = 5 4 x + 1 2 x 2 + 5 4( x 2) . keywords: partial fractions 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Find the unique function y satisfying the equations dy dx = 2 ( x 2)(7 x ) , y (3) = 0 . 1. y = 2 5 ln fl fl fl 7 x x 2 fl fl fl ln4 2. y = 2 ln fl fl fl x 2 7 x fl fl fl + ln4 3. y = 2 ln fl fl fl 7 x x 2 fl fl fl ln4 4. y = 1 5 ln fl fl fl x 2 7 x fl fl fl + ln4 5. y = 2 5 ln fl fl fl x 2 7 x fl fl fl + ln4 correct Explanation: We first find A, B so that 2 ( x 2)(7 x ) = A x 2 + B 7 x by bringing the right hand side to a common denominator. In this case, 2 ( x 2)(7 x ) = A (7 x ) + B ( x 2) ( x 2)(7 x ) , and so A (7 x ) + B ( x 2) = 2 . To find the values of A, B particular choices of x are made When x = 2, for instance, A = 2 5 , while when x = 7, B = 2 5 . Thus dy dx = 2 5 1 x 2 + 1 7 x . Pham, Quoc Homework 7 Due: Mar 6 2007, 3:00 am Inst: Eric Katerman 2 Hence after integration, y = 2 5 n ln  x 2  ln  7 x  o + C = 2 5 ln fl fl fl x 2 7 x fl fl fl + C with C an arbitrary constant. But y (3) = 0 = C = 2 5 ln 1 4 , i.e. , C = 2 5 ln4 . Consequently, y = 2 5 ln fl fl fl x 2 7 x fl fl fl + ln4 . keywords: partial fractions, log function 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Evaluate the integral I = Z 2 1 6 x 3 + 4 x dx. 1. I = 3 2 ln 8 5 2. I = 3 8 ln 5 2 3. I = 3 4 ln 8 5 4. I = 3 4 ln 5 2 correct 5. I = 3 8 ln 8 5 6. I = 3 2 ln 5 2 Explanation: By partial fractions, 6 x 3 + 4 x = A x + Bx + C x 2 + 4 . To determine A, B, and C multiply through by x 3 + 4 x : for then 6 = A ( x 2 + 4) + x ( Bx + C ) = ( A + B ) x 2 + Cx + 4 A, which after comparing coefficients gives A = B , C = 0 , A = 3 2 . Thus I = 3 2 Z 2 1 1 x x x 2 + 4 dx = 3 2 h ln x 1 2 ln( x 2 + 4) i 2 1 = 3 4 h ln x 2 x 2 + 4 i 2 1 ....
