Math 119 Recitation 8 November 6, 2006 1. Find the dimensions of the isoceles triangle of largest area that can be inscribed in a circle of radius r . 2. A right circular cylinder is inscribed in a sphere of radius r . Find the largest possible surface area of such cylinder. 3. At which points on the curve y = 1 + 40 x 3 - 3 x 5 does the tangent line have the largest slope? 4. Find the point on the hyperbola xy = 8 that is closest to the point (3 , 0) 5. Use Newton’s method with initial point x 1 = 1 to find x 3 , the third approximation to the root of the equation x 3 - x 2 - 1 = 0.
