Find the absolute maximum value of the function 2. (a) Let be a triangle with right angle and hypotenuse . (See the figure.) If the inscribed circle touches the hypotenuse at , show that (b) If , express the radius of the inscribed circle in terms of and . (c) If is fixed and varies, find the maximum value of . 3. A triangle with sides , and varies with time , but its area never changes. Let be the angle opposite the side of length and suppose always remains acute. (a) Express in terms of , , , , and . (b) Express in terms of the quantities in part (a). |||| Chapter 5 1. In Sections 5.1 and 5.2 we used the formulas for the sums of the th powers of the first integers when and 3. (These formulas are proved in Appendix E.) In this problem we derive for- mulas for any . These formulas were first published in 1713 by the Swiss mathematician James Bernoulli in his book Ars Conjectandi . (a) The Bernoulli polynomials are defined by , , and for . Find for and . (b) Use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to show that for . (c) If we introduce the Bernoulli numbers , then we can write and, in general, where [The numbers are the binomial coefficients.] Use part (b) to show that, for , b n n k n k b k n 2 ( n k ) n k n ! k ! n k !
