Please show all your work. Use only the paper provided. You may write on the back if you need more space, but clearly indicate this on the front. 1 2 1. Let f ( x ) = 3 + x 2 + tan( x 2 ) ,- 1 < x < 1. Find the value of the derivative ( f- 1 ) (3). Solution. Note that f (0) = 3 and f ( x ) = 2 x + 2 sec 2 x 2 . Thus ( f- 1 ) (3) = 1 f (0) = 1 / 2 = 2 / . 2. Solve for x : 7 e x- e 2 x = 12 Solution. If z = e x then the equation becomes z 2- 7 z + 12 = 0, i.e. ( z- 3)( z- 4) = 0. Thus either e x = 3 or e x = 4 and hence either x = ln3 or x = ln4. 3 3. Find the derivative of the function f ( x ) = (ln x ) x . Solution. If y = f ( x ) then ln y = x lnln x . Taking the derivative implic- itly, y /y = x 1 x ln x + lnln x and hence f ( x ) = y 1 ln x + lnln x = (ln x ) x 1 ln x + lnln x ....
