Since g ′ ( x ) = 5 x 4 ln( x ) + x 5 parenleftbigg 1 x parenrightbigg = 5 x 4 ln( x ) + x 4 = x 4 (5 ln( x ) + 1) , we have f ′ ( x ) = g ′ ( x ) h ( x ) − g ( x ) h ′ ( x ) h 2 ( x ) = x 4 (5 ln( x ) + 1)(4 x + 6 e x ) − x 5 ln( x )(4 + 6 e x ) (4 x + 6 e x ) 2 Question 2 Over the course of a year, the city of Ottawa has its highest average monthly temperature of 4 points 23 ◦ C in August and its lowest monthly average of − 3 ◦ C in February. Assume that temperature varies sinusoidally over a period of one year. Find the parameters in the standard cosine description , i.e., f ( x ) = M + A cos parenleftbigg 2 π P ( t − T ) parenrightbigg , where t is in months, and t = 0 correspond to the month of January. Draw the graph of the function and identify the four parameters A, B, Φ , T in the graph. Give the names of the four parameters. Solution: The mean is M = 23 − 3 2 = 10, the amplitude is A = 23 + 3 2 = 13, the period is 12 months and the phase is T = 7 months. We get the following graph.= 7 months....
