First try substitution, factoring
If you’re taking the limit as x → ∞ of a
quotient, and substitution yields an invalid
answer, then try first to divide both the
numerator and the denominator of the limit
expression by its highest power of x
If the limit expression contains absolute
values, then try breaking the limit up into two
onesided limits
If the limit expression is a quotient, and if
factoring doesn’t work, then try l’Hopital’s Rule RULES FOR DIFFERENTIATION:

function
Step 1. Take the derivative of both sides with
respect to x. Use the Chain Rule on terms
involving y (and note that the derivative of y with changes from negative to positive at p, then f
has a relative minimum at p. If f ’ changes from
positive to negative at p, then f has a relative
maximum at p.
Second derivative test: If f ′ p = 0 and dy dx .)
Step 2. Collect all terms involving dy dx f ′′( p ) > 0 , then f respect to x must be left as on one side of the equation.

Step 1. Find the intercepts.
Step 2. Find all the asymptotes.
Step 3. Find critical points and the intervals of
increase/decrease.

2 f ′( x) = k k > 0 , determine the intervals on which f is increasing and

maximum or minimum values of f. Now we

relative maximum at p. If f ′( p ) = 0 and f ′′( p ) = 0 , then the test fails.

to differentiate a function with complicated
exponent/a product of several functions, etc. It’s
also used to differentiate functions that have an x
in both the base and in the exponent. f(x) is concave down on that interval. A point of
inflection occurs when f ( p ) changes sign (and
thus concavity).
Vertical asymptote: The line x = a is a vertical
asymptote for the graph of the function f(x) if
and only if lim f ( x ) = ±∞ or
x→a + lim f ( x) = ±∞ . x→a − Horizontal asymptote: The line x = b is a
horizontal asymptote for the graph of the
function f(x) if and only if lim f ( x) = b or
x → +∞ lim f ( x) = b x → −∞ We conclude that and x = 1 / 2k correspond to a local maximum
and a local minimum for f respectively. OPTIMIZATION PROBLEMS
Step 1. Determine what we’re trying to
maximize/minimize and write an equation for
this.
Step 2. Write a second equation from additional
information given in the problem, isolate one of
the two variables, and substitute this into the first
equation.
Step 3. Take the derivative of this equation, set it
to zero and solve for the remaining variable.
Step 4. Plug the value of this variable into the
original equations to solve for the remaining
variables. Helping students since 1999 ...
