Use the graph of f ( x ) to approximate each of the following. Each answer should be a °nite number, 1 ; °1 ; or lastly d.n.e. (does not exist). p
2. [5 marks ] Consider f ( x ) = x 2 ° 9 ° 4 x ° a ; where a is constant.
(b) Determine the vertical asymptotes of f ( x ) when a = 4 : 3. [3 marks ] Consider f ( x ) = x , where a is a constant.
x 2 ° 11 x + 28 (a) Find the value of a such that lim x
(b) Evaluate, if possible, lim x ! 7 f ( x ) using the value determined in part (a) for a .
4. [5 marks ] The Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan occurred on March 11th, 2011. Over 100 000 people were evacuated due to the release of radioactive material into the earth. Suppose the cost, in billions of dollars, to clean up 100 x % of the radioactive material was given by C ( x ) = 2 p 1 ° x j x ° 1 j . (a) How much did it cost to clean up 75% of the radioactive material? C p 1 ° 0 : 75
(b) Evaluate lim x ! 1 ° C ( x ) and interpret the result.
5. [5 marks ] Consider f ( x ) = cos x and g ( x ) = sin x x : (a) Plot f ( x ) ; 1 f ( x ) ; and g ( x ) for x 2 [ ° 1 ; 1] in Maple.
