Unformatted text preview: pokharel (yp624) HW10 Radin (56520) 1 This printout should have 14 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Determine if the limit lim x 3 + 2 x + 2 x 3 1 5 x 3 exists, and if it does, find its value. 1. limit does not exist 2. limit = 3 3. limit = 3 4. limit = 2 5 correct 5. limit = 2 5 Explanation: Dividing by x 3 in the numerator and de nominator we see that 3 + 2 x + 2 x 3 1 5 x 3 = 3 x 3 + 2 x 2 + 2 1 x 3 5 . With s = 1 x , therefore, lim x 3 + 2 x + 2 x 3 1 5 x 3 = lim s 3 s 3 + 2 s 2 + 2 s 3 5 . Consequently, the limit exists, and limit = 2 5 . 002 10.0 points Determine if lim x parenleftbigg 4 x x 1 + 6 x x + 1 parenrightbigg exists, and if it does, find its value. 1. limit = 12 2. limit = 14 3. limit = 13 4. limit does not exist 5. limit = 10 correct 6. limit = 11 Explanation: Bringing the expression to a common de nominator, we see that 4 x x 1 + 6 x x + 1 = 4 x ( x + 1) + 6 x ( x 1) ( x 1)( x + 1) = 10 x 2 2 x x 2 1 . Thus after dividing through by x 2 we see that lim x parenleftbigg 4 x x 1 + 6 x x + 1 parenrightbigg = lim x 10 2 x 1 1 x 2 . Consequently, the limit exists and limit = 10 . 003 10.0 points Determine if the limit lim x x 2 + 7 x 7 x + 5 exists, and if it does, find its value. 1. limit = 1 pokharel (yp624) HW10 Radin (56520) 2 2. limit = 7 5 3. limit does not exist 4. limit = 1 5. limit = 7 5 6. limit = 1 7 7. limit = 1 7 correct Explanation: Since x 2 =  x  , ( a is always non negative, remember), the given expression can be written as x 2 + 7 x 7 x + 5 =  x  x parenleftBig radicalbig 1 + 7 /x 7 + 5 /x parenrightBig . But lim x radicalbigg 1 + 7 x = 1 , lim x parenleftBig 7+ 5 x parenrightBig = 7 . On the other hand, lim x  x  x = 1 . Consequently, by Properties of Limits, the given limit exists, and limit = 1 7 . 004 10.0 points Determine if lim x parenleftBig radicalbig x 2 + 3 x parenrightBig exists, and if it does, find its value. 1. limit = 4 2. limit doesnt exist 3. limit = 3 4. limit = 1 5. limit = 0 correct Explanation: After the rationalization radicalbig x 2 + 3 x = ( x 2 + 3) x 2 x 2 + 3 + x , we see that radicalbig x 2 + 3 x = 3 x 2 + 3 + x ....
