2 1. Let f ( x ) = 3 + x 2 + tan( πx 2 ) , - 1 < x < 1. Find the value of the derivative ( f - 1 ) 0 (3). Solution. Note that f (0) = 3 and f 0 ( x ) = 2 x + π 2 sec 2 πx 2 . Thus ( f - 1 ) 0 (3) = 1 f 0 (0) = 1 π/ 2 = 2 . / 2. You have just placed A 0 dollars in a bank account that pays 4% interest compounded continuously.
