Microeconomics Practice Calculating Derivatives Microeconomics, Fall 2007, Dr. Laury For each of the following, compute the first and second derivatives. Equation 1. f(x) = 4x – 5 2. f(x) = 100 – 16x 2 3. f(x) = x(25-x) 4. f(x) = 16 – 49x 5. f(x) = 2x 2 + 3x – 17 6. f(x) = 16x – 100x 2 7. f(x) = 5x 2 + 3x 8. f(x) = 5x(100-x) 9. f(x) = 7x 2 + 13x 11. f(x) = 2x-1 12. f(x) = 2-3x 13. f(x) = x 2 + 5 14. f(x) = 3-2x 2 15. f(x) = -16x 2 + 100x + 25 16. f(x) = -16x 2 + x 17. f(x) = 3x 2 – x + 5 18. f(x) = 1 – 3x
