3. [7 marks] Let y = f ( x ) = x (ln x ) 2 . Note that the domain of f is (0 , ) since ln x is only defined for x > 0. The following approximate values may be useful e 2 . 718 e 2 7 . 389 1 e 0 . 368 1 e 2 0 . 135 4 e 2 0 . 541 Please answer ALL of the following questions: (separate sheet provided) (a) Find the x intercept(s) (set y = 0). [Note: there is no y intercept.] (b) Evaluate lim x →∞ f ( x ) to see what happens when x is large. (c) Evaluate lim x 0+ f ( x ) to see what happens near 0. Hint: Write f = x (ln x ) 2 = (ln x ) 2 1 /x and apply l’hopital’s rule twice to simplify. (d) Find f 0 ( x ), and find all values with

Unformatted text preview: f ( x ) = 0 or f ( x ) DNE. Hint: Show that x = 1 and x = e-2 are the only critical values of f . (e) Give a table of intervals of increase and decrease for f . (f) Give the x and y coordinates of any local maximums and minimums. (g) Find f 00 ( x ), and find all values with f 00 ( x ) = 0 or f 00 ( x ) DNE. Hint: Show that x = e-1 is the only possible point of inflection of f . (h) Give a table of intervals of concavity of f . (i) Give the x and y coordinates of any points of inflection of f .
