(32 points, 8 points apiece) Compute the following limits. Give the value if the limit is defined, or if it is ea or —-co. If none of these is true, write No limit. 2 3 5x + x (a) lim _ — . x .9 00 5x3 — x2 . ex — 1 (b) limx _> 0 2x . x2 + 4 (C) llmx__> 2. fx—— 4 _ x . (d) limx % 7: (sin x)/(x—1r). 2. (36 points, 9 points apiece) Compute the following derivatives. (Note that (c) is a second derivative.)

(12 points) A point q is moving along the parabola y = x2. Express the rate of change of its distance from (0,0) at a given moment in terms of x (the x—coordinate of the point) and dx/dt (the rate of change of that coordinate). 4. (a) (8 points) Suppose f is a function and a a real number such that f is differentiable at 0:. Give the definition of the derivative f ’(a). (b) (12 points) If f is a function and a a real number such that f is differentiable at a, and flat) i 0, prove from the above definition a formula for the derivative at a of the function C(x) = 1/ f(x) in terms of f and its derivative at a. (You may assume without proof results proved in Stewart about limits; and the result that a differentiable function is continuous, but assume no differentiation formulas. In particular, you may not assume the formula for the derivative of a quotient or for the derivative of a power; though of course you may use either of those formulas in scratch—work to check the formula you get.) ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
