Unformatted text preview: garcia (jjg2564) Hw 09 gualdani (56410) 1 This printout should have 19 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points If f is the function whose graph is given by 2 4 6 2 4 6 which of the following properties does f have? A. f ( x ) > 0 on (2 , 4) , B. local minimum at x = 4 , C. critical point at x = 2 . 1. A only 2. C only 3. all of them 4. B only 5. A and B only 6. A and C only correct 7. none of them 8. B and C only Explanation: The given graph has a removable disconti nuity at x = 4 and a critical point at x = 2. On the other hand, recall that f has a local maximum at a point c when f ( x ) f ( c ) for all x near c . Thus f could have a local max imum even if the graph of f has a removable discontinuity at c ; similarly, the definition of local minimum allows the graph of f to have a local minimum at a removable disconitu ity. So it makes sense to ask if f has a local extremum at x = 4. Inspection of the graph now shows of the three properties A. f has , B. f does not have , C. f has . 002 10.0 points If the graph of the function defined on [ 3 , 3] by f ( x ) = x 2 + ax + b has an absolute minimum at (2 , 1), determine the value of f (1). 1. f (1) = 2 correct 2. f (1) = 1 3. f (1) = 4 4. f (1) = 5 5. f (1) = 3 Explanation: The absolute minimum of f on the inter val [ 3 , 3] will occur at a critical point c in ( 3 , 3), i.e. , at a solution of f ( x ) = 2 x + a = 0 , or at at an endpoint of [ 3 , 3]. Thus, since this absolute minimum is known to occur at x = 2 in ( 3 , 3), it follows that f (2) = 0 , f (2) = 1 . These equations are enough to determine the values of a and b . Indeed, f (2) = 4 + a = 0 , garcia (jjg2564) Hw 09 gualdani (56410) 2 so a = 4, in which case f (2) = 4 8 + b = 1 , so b = 5. Consequently, f (1) = 1 + a + b = 2 . 003 10.0 points If f is a continuous function on [0 , 6] having (1) a local maximum at 2, (2) an absolute minimum at 4 , and (3) an absolute maximum at 6, which one of the following could be the graph of f ? 1. 2 4 6 2 4 x y 2. 2 4 6 2 4 x y correct 3. 2 4 6 2 4 x y 4. 2 4 6 2 4 x y 5. 2 4 6 2 4 x y 6. 2 4 6 2 4 x y Explanation: By inspection, only 2 4 6 2 4 x y garcia (jjg2564) Hw 09 gualdani (56410) 3 can be the graph of f . keywords: absolute minimum, absolute maxi mum, local maximum, local minimum 004 10.0 points Find all the critical points of f when f ( x ) = x x 2 + 16 . 1. x = 4 , 16 2. x = 16 , 16 3. x = 16 , 4 4. x = 4 , 4 correct 5. x = 0 , 4 6. x = 4 , Explanation: By the Quotient Rule, f ( x ) = ( x 2 + 16) 2 x 2 ( x 2 + 16) 2 = 16 x 2 ( x 2 + 16) 2 ....
