George M. Bergman Fall 1998, Math LAW 2 October. 1998 891 Evans Hall First Midterm, Makeup Exam 3:104:00 PM 1. (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

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.)...
