The College Board is a national nonprofit membership association whose mission is
to prepare, inspire, and connect students to college and opportunity. Founded in
1900, the association is composed of more than 4,300 schools, colleges, universities,
and other educational organizations. Each year, the College Board serves over three
million students and their parents, 23,000 high schools, and 3,500 colleges through
major programs and services in college admissions, guidance, assessment, financial
aid, enrollment, and teaching and learning. Among its bestknown programs are the
SAT®, the PSAT/NMSQT , and the Advanced Placement Program (AP). The College
Board is committed to the principles of excellence and equity, and that commitment
is embodied in all of its programs, services, activities, and concerns.
The College Board and the Advanced Placement Program encourage teachers, AP
Coordinators, and school administrators to make equitable access a guiding principle for
their AP programs. The College Board is committed to the principle that all students
deserve an opportunity to participate in rigorous and academically challenging courses
and programs. All students who are willing to accept the challenge of a rigorous academic
curriculum should be considered for admission to AP courses. The Board encourages
the elimination of barriers that restrict access to AP courses for students from ethnic,
racial, and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in the
AP Program. Schools should make every effort to ensure that their AP classes reflect
the diversity of their student population. For more information about equity and access in
principle and practice, contact the National Office in New York. College Board Regional Offices

Available at apcentral.collegeboard.com Notes about AP Calculus FreeResponse Questions
• The solution to each freeresponse question is as it appeared on the scoring
standard from the AP Reading. Other mathematically correct solutions are possible. • Scientific calculators were permitted, but not required, on the AP Calculus Exams in
1983 and 1984. • Scientific (nongraphing) calculators were required on the AP Calculus Exams in 1993
and 1994. • Graphing calculators have been required on the AP Calculus Exams since 1995. From
19951999, the calculator could be used on all 6 freeresponse questions. Since the 2000
Exams, the freeresponse section has consisted of two parts  Part A (questions 13)
requires a graphing calculator and Part B (questions 46) does not allow the use of a
calculator. Copyright © 2003 by College Entrance Examination Board. All rights reserved.

graph of f . Support your conclusion. Copyright © 2003 by College Entrance Examination Board. All rights reserved.
Available at apcentral.collegeboard.com 1992 BC4
Solution
(a) For continuity at x = 1,
lim ( 2 x − x 2 ) = f (1) = lim ( x 2 + kx + p )
+ x →1− x →1 Therefore 1 = 1 + k + p
Since f is continuous at x = 1 and is piecewise polynomial, left and right
derivatives exist.
f −′ (1) = 0 and f +′ (1) = 2 + k For differentiability at x = 1, 0 = 2 + k . Therefore k = −2, p = 2 (b) f ′ ( x ) = 2 − 2 x, x ≤ 1 2 − 2x > 0
x <1
f ′ ( x ) = 2 x − 2, x > 1
2x − 2 > 0
x >1
Since f increases on each of ( −∞,1) and (1, ∞ ) and is continuous at x = 1, f is increasing on ( −∞, ∞ ) . (c) f ′′ ( x ) = −2, x < 1
f ′′ ( x ) = 2, x > 1 Since f ′′ ( x ) < 0 on ( −∞,1) and
f ′′ ( x ) > 0 on (1, ∞ ) and
f (1) is defined, (1, f (1)) = (1,1) is a point of inflection. Copyright © 2003 by College Entrance Examination Board. All rights reserved.
