f (a + h) − f (a) = [3(a + h) − 2] − [3a − 2]

−x We are given f (0) = 0, so the range of f is {−1, 0, 1}. That is, the range of f is the set consisting of the
three real numbers −1, 0, and 1.
C01S01.018: Given f (x) = [[3x ]], we see that
3 f (x) = 0 if 0 x < 1,
3 f (x) = 1 if 1
3 x < 2,
3 f (2) = 2 if 2
3 x < 1; moreover,
f (x) = −3 if −1 f (x) = −2 if − 2
3 x < − 1,
3 f (x) = −1 if − 1
3 x < 0. f (x) = 3m if m x < m + 1,
3 f (x) = 3m + 1 if m+ 1
3 x < m + 2,
3 f (x) = 3m + 2 if m+ 2
3 x < m + 1. x < − 2,
3 In general, if m is any integer, then Because every integer is equal to 3m or to 3m + 1 or to 3m + 2 for some integer m, we see that the range
of f includes the set Z of all integers. Because f can assume no values other than integers, we can conclude
that the range of f is exactly Z.
C01S01.019: Given f (x) = (−1)[[x]] , we ﬁrst note that the values of the exponent [[ x ]] consist of all the
integers and no other numbers. So all that matters about the exponent is whether it is an even integer or
an odd integer, for if even then f (x) = 1 and if odd then f (x) = −1. No other values of f (x) are possible,
so the range of f is the set consisting of the two numbers −1 and 1.
C01S01.020: If 0 < x 1, then f (x) = 34. If 1 < x 2 then f (x) = 34 + 21 = 55. If 2 < x 3 then
f (x) = 34 + 2 · 21 = 76. We continue in this way and conclude with the observation that if 11 < x < 12 then
f (x) = 34 + 11 · 21 = 265. So the range of f is the set
{34, 55, 76, 97, 118, 139, 160, 181, 202, 223, 244, 265}.
C01S01.021: Given f (x) = 10 − x2 , note that for every real number x, x2 is deﬁned, and for every such
real number x2 , 10 − x2 is also deﬁned. Therefore the domain of f is the set R of all real numbers.
C01S01.022: Given f (x) = x3 + 5, we note that for each real number x, x3 is deﬁned; moreover, for each
such real number x3 , x3 + 5 is also deﬁned. Thus the domain of f is the set R of all real numbers.
√
C01S01.023: √
Given f (t) = t2 , we observe that for every real number t, t2 is deﬁned and nonnegative,
and hence that t2 is deﬁned as well. Therefore the domain of f is the set R of all real numbers.
√2
√
√
C01S01.024: Given g (t) =
t , we observe that t is deﬁned exactly when t 0. In this case,
t
is also deﬁned, and hence the domain of g is the set [0, + ∞) of all nonnegative real numbers. 2 √
C01S01.025: Given f (x) = 3x − 5, we note that 3x − 5 is deﬁned for all real numbers x, but that its
square root will be deﬁned when and only when 3x − 5 is nonnegative; that is, when 3x − 5
0, so that
5
5
x 3 . So the domain of f consists of all those real numbers x in the interval 3 , + ∞ .
4 √
C01S01.026: Given g (t) = 3 t + 4 = (t + 4)1/3 , we note that t + 4 is deﬁned for every real number t and
the cube root of t + 4 is deﬁned for every possible resulting value of t + 4. Therefore the domain of g is the
set R of all real numbers.
√
C01S01.027: Given f (t) = 1 − 2t, we observe that 1 − 2t is deﬁned for every real number t, but that its
square root is deﬁned only when 1 − 2t is nonnegative. We solve the inequality 1 − 2t 0 to ﬁnd that f (t)
is deﬁned exactly when t 1 . Hence the domain of f is the interval − ∞, 1 .
2
2
C01S01.028: Given
g (x) = 1
,
(x + 2)2 we see that (x + 2)2 is deﬁned for every real number x, but that g (x), its reciprocal, will be deﬁned only
when (x + 2)2 = 0; that is, when x + 2 = 0. So the domain of g consists of those real numbers x = −2.
C01S01.029: Given
f (x) = 2
,
3−x we see that 3 − x is deﬁned for all real values of x, but that f (x), double its reciprocal, is deﬁned only when
3 − x = 0. So the domain of f consists of those real numbers x = 3.
C01S01.030: Given
2
,
3−t g (t) = it is necessary that 3 − t be both nonzero (so that its reciprocal is deﬁned) and nonnegative (so that the
square root is deﬁned). Thus 3 − t > 0, and therefore the domain of g consists of those real numbers t < 3.
√
C01S01.031: Given f (x) = x2 + 9, observe that for each real number x, x2 + 9 is deﬁned and, moreover,
is positive. So its square root is deﬁned for every real number x. Hence the domain of f is the set R of all
real numbers.
C01S01.032: Given
h(z ) = √ 1
,
4 − z2 we note that 4 − z 2 is deﬁned for every real number z , but that its square root will be deﬁned only if
4 − z2
0. Moreover, the square root cannot be zero, else its reciprocal will be undeﬁned, so we need to
solve the inequality 4 − z 2 > 0; that is, z 2 < 4. The solution is −2 < z < 2, so the domain of h is the open
interval (−2, 2).
√
√
C01S01.033: Given f (x) = 4 − x , note ﬁrst that we require x 0 in order that x be deﬁned. In
√
addition, we require 4 − x 0 so that its square root will be deﬁned as well. So we solve [simultaneously]
√
x 0 and x 4 to ﬁnd that 0 x 16. So the domain of f is the closed interval [0, 16].
C01S01.034: Given
x+1
,
x−1 f (x) =
5 we require that x = 1 so that the fraction is deﬁned. In addition we require that the fraction be nonnegative
so that its square root will be deﬁned. These conditions imply that both numerator and denominator be
positive or that both be negative; moreover, the numerator may also be zero. But if the denominator is
positive then the [larger] numerator will be positive as well; if the numerator is nonpositive then the [smaller]
denominator will be negative. So the domain of f consists of those real numbers for which either x − 1 > 0
or x + 1 0; that is, either x > 1 or x −1. So the domain of f is the union of the two intervals (−∞, −1]
and (1, + ∞). Alternatively, it consists of those real numbers x not in the interval (−1, 1].
C01S01.035: Given:
g (t) = t
.
|t| This fraction will be deﬁned whenever its denominator is nonzero, thus for all real numbers t = 0. So
the domain of g consists of the nonzero real numbers; that is, the union of the two intervals (−∞, 0) and
(0, + ∞).
C01S01.036: If a square has edge length x, then its area A is given by A = x2 and its perimeter P is given
by P = 4x. To express A in terms of P :

16 P , P < + ∞. (It will be convenient later in the course to allow the possibility that P , x, and A are zero. If this produces
an answer that fails to meet real-world criteria for a solution, then that possibility can simply be eliminated
when the answer to the problem is stated.)
C01S01.037: If a circle has radius r, then its circumference C is given by C = 2π r and its area A by
A = π r2 . To express C in terms of A, we ﬁrst express r in terms of A, then substitute in the formula for C :
A = πr2 ; r= C = 2π r = 2π A
;
π
√
π2 A
= 2 π A.
π A

π Therefore to express C as a function of A, we write
√
C (A) = 2 π A, 0 A < + ∞. √
It is also permissible simply to write C (A) = 2 π A without mentioning the domain, because the “default”
domain is correct. In the ﬁrst displayed equation we do not write r = ± A/π because we know that r is
never negative.

the temperature is 10◦ C it is 32 + 18 = 50◦ F; when the temperature is 20◦ C then it is 32 + 2 · 18 = 68◦ F.

In general we get the Fahrenheit temperature F by adding 32 to the product of 10 C and 18, where C is the
Celsius temperature. That is,

F = 32 + C,

9 F > −459.67. C01S01.040: Suppose that a rectangle has base length x and perimeter 100. Let h denote the height of
such a rectangle. Then 2x + 2h = 100, so that h = 50 − x. Because x 0 and h 0, we see that 0 x 50.
The area A of the rectangle is xh, so that
A(x) = x(50 − x), 0 50. x C01S01.041: Let y denote the height of such a rectangle. The rectangle is inscribed in a circle of diameter
4, so the bottom side x √ the left side y√ the two legs of a right triangle with hypotenuse 4. Consequently
and
are
x2 + y 2 = 16, so y = 16 − x2 (not − 16 − x2 because y
0). Because x
0 and y
0, we see that
0 x 4. The rectangle has area A = xy , so
A(x) = x 16 − x2 , 0 x 4. C01S042.042: We take the problem to mean that current production is 200 barrels per day per well, that
if one new well is drilled then the 21 wells will produce 195 barrels per day per well; in general, that if x new
wells are drilled then the 20 + x wells will produce 200 − 5x barrels per day per well. So total production
would be p = (20 + x)(200 − 5x) barrels per day. But because 200 − 5x 0, we see that x 40. Because
x 0 as well (you don’t “undrill” wells), here’s the answer:
p(x) = 4000 + 100x − 5x2 , 0 x 40, x an integer. C01S01.043: The square base of the box measures x by x centimeters; let y denote its height (in centimeters). Because the volume of the box is 324 cm3 , we see that x2 y = 324. The base of the box costs 2x2 cents,
each of its four sides costs xy cents, and its top costs x2 cents. So the total cost of the box is
C = 2x2 + 4xy + x2 = 3x2 + 4xy.
7 (1) Because x > 0 and y > 0 (the box has positive volume), but because y can be arbitrarily close to zero (as
well as x), we see also that 0 < x < + ∞. We use the equation x2 y = 324 to eliminate y from Eq. (1) and
thereby ﬁnd that
C (x) = 3x2 + 1296
,
x 0 < x < + ∞. C01S01.044: If the rectangle is rotated around its side S of length x to produce a cylinder, then x will also
be the height of the cylinder. Let y denote the length of the two sides perpendicular to S ; then y will be the
radius of the cylinder; moreover, the perimeter of the original rectangle is 2x + 2y = 36. Hence y = 18 − x.
Note also that x 0 and that x 18 (because y 0). The volume of the cylinder is V = π y 2 x, and so
V (x) = π x(18 − x)2 , 0 18. x C01S01.045: Let h denote the height of the cylinder. Its radius is r, so its volume is π r2 h = 1000. The
total surface area of the cylinder is

r 0 < r < + ∞. C01S01.046: Let y denote the height of the box (in centimeters). Then
2x2 + 4xy = 600, so that y= 600 − 2x2

box will have that square as its base and four rectangular sides each measuring 50 − 2x by x (the height of
the box). Clearly 0 x and 2x 50. So the volume of the box will be
V (x) = x(50 − 2x)2 ,

C01S01.051: If x is an integer, then Ceiling(x) = x and −Floor(−x) = −(−x) = x. If x is not an
integer, then choose the integer n so that n < x < n + 1. Then Ceiling(x) = n + 1, −(n + 1) < −x < −n,
and
−Floor(−x) = −[−(n + 1)] = n + 1.
In both cases we see that Ceiling(x) = −Floor(−x).
C01S01.052: The range of Round(x) is the set Z of all integers. If k is a nonzero constant, then as x
varies through all real number values, so does kx. Hence the range of Round(kx) is Z if k = 0. If k = 0
then the range of Round(kx) consists of the single number zero.

C01S02.001: The slope of L is m = (3 − 0)/(2 − 0) = 3 , so L has equation
2
y−0= 3
(x − 0);
2 that is, 2y = 3x. C01S02.002: Because L is vertical and (7, 0) lies on L, every point on L has Cartesian coordinates (7, y )
for some number y (and every such point lies on L). Hence an equation of L is x = 7.
C01S02.003: Because L is horizontal, it has slope zero. Hence an equation of L is
y − (−5) = 0 · (x − 3); that is, y = −5. C01S02.004: Because (2, 0) and (0, −3) lie on L, it has slope (0 + 3)/(2 − 0) = 3 . Hence an equation of
2
L is
y − 0 = 3 (x − 2);
2 that is, y = 3 x − 3.
2 C01S02.005: The slope of L is (3 − (−3))/(5 − 2) = 2, so an equation of L is
y − 3 = 2(x − 5); that is, y = 2x − 7. C01S02.006: An equation of L is y − (−4) = 1 (x − (−1)); that is, 2y + 7 = x.
2
C01S02.007: The slope of L is tan(135◦ ) = −1, so L has equation
y − 2 = −1 · (x − 4); that is, x + y = 6. C01S02.008: Equation: y − 7 = 6(x − 0); that is, y = 6x + 7.
C01S02.009: The second line’s equation can be written in the form y = −2x + 10 to show that it has slope
−2. Because L is parallel to the second line, L also has slope −2 and thus equation y − 5 = −2(x − 1).
C01S02.010: The equation of the second line can be rewritten as y = − 1 x + 17 to show that it has slope
2
2
− 1 . Because L is perpendicular to the second line, L has slope 2 and thus equation y − 4 = 2(x + 2).

C01S02.024: (x − 1)2 + (y + 1)2 = 0: The graph consists of the single point (1, −1).
C01S02.025: (x + 1)2 + (y + 3)2 = −10: There are no points on the graph.
C01S02.026: x2 + y 2 − x + 3y + 2.5 = 0: x2 − x + 0.25 + y 2 + 3y + 2.25 = 0: (x − 0.5)2 + (y + 1.5)2 = 0.
The graph consists of the single point (0.5, −1.5).
C01S02.027: The graph is the straight line segment connecting the two points (−1, 7) and (1, −3)
(including those two points).
C01S02.028: The graph is the straight line segment connecting the two points (0, 2) and (2, −8), including
the ﬁrst of these two points but not the second.
C01S02.029: The graph is √ parabola that opens downward, symmetric around the y -axis, with vertex
the
at (0, 10) and x-intercepts ± 10.
C01S02.030: The graph of y = 1 + 2x2 is a parabola that opens upwards, is symmetric around the y -axis,
and has vertex at (0, 1).
C01S02.031: The graph of y = x3 can be visualized by modifying the familiar graph of the parabola with
equation y = x2 : The former may be obtained by multiplying the y -coordinate of the latter’s point (x, x2 )
by x. Thus both have ﬂat spots at the origin. For 0 < x < 1, the graph of y = x3 is below that of y = x2 .
They cross at (1, 1), and for x > 1 the graph of y = x2 is below that of y = x3 , with the diﬀerence becoming
arbitrarily large as x increases without bound. If the graph of y = x3 for x 0 is rotated 180◦ around the
point (0, 0), the graph of y = x3 for x < 0 is the result.
C01S02.032: The graph of f (x) = x4 can be visualized by ﬁrst visualizing the graph of y = x2 . If the
y -coordinate of each point on this graph is replaced with its square (x4 ), the result is the graph of f . The
eﬀect on the graph of y = x2 is to multiply the y -coordinate by x2 , which is between 0 and 1 for 0 < | x | < 1
and which is larger than 1 for | x | > 1. Thus the graph of f superﬁcially resembles that of y = x2 , but is
much closer to the x-axis for | x | < 1 and much farther away for | x | > 1. The two graphs cross at (0, 0)
(where each has a ﬂat spot) and at (±1, 1), but the graph of f is much steeper at the latter two points.
√
C01S02.033: To graph y = f (x) = 4 − x2 , note that y 0 and that y 2 = 4 − x2 ; that is, x2 + y 2 = 4.
Hence the graph of f is the upper half of the circle with center (0, 0) and radius 2. √
C01S02.034: To graph y = f (x) = − 9 − x2 , note that y
0 and that y 2 = 9 − x2 ; that is, that
2
2
x + y = 9. Hence the graph of f is the lower half of the circle with center (0, 0) and radius 3.
2 √
C01S02.035: To graph f (x) = x2 − 9, note that there is no graph for −3 < √ < 3, that f (±3) = 0, and
x
√
that f (x) > 0 for x < −3 and for x > 3. If x is large positive, then x2 − 9 ≈ x2 = x, so the graph of f
has x-intercept (3, 0) and rises as x increases, nearly coinciding with the graph of y = √ for x large positive.
x
√
The case x < −3 is trickier. In this case, if x is a large negative number, then f (x) = x2 − 9 ≈ x2 = −x
(Note the minus sign!). So for x
−3, the graph of f has x-intercept (−3, 0) and, for x large negative,
almost coincides with the graph of y = −x. Later we will see that the graph of f becomes arbitrarily steep
as x gets closer and closer to ±3.
C01S02.036: As x increases without bound—either positively or negatively—f (x) gets arbitrarily close
to zero. Moreover, if x is large positive then f (x) is negative and close to zero, so the graph of f lies just
below the x-axis for such x. Similarly, the graph of f lies just above the x-axis for x large negative. If x
is slightly less than 1 but very close to 1, then f (x) is the reciprocal of a tiny positive number, hence is a
large positive number. So the graph of f just to the left of the vertical line x = 1 almost coincides with the
top half of that line. Similarly, just to the right of the line x = 1, then graph of f almost coincides with the
bottom half of that line. There is no graph where x = 1, so the graph resembles the one in the next ﬁgure.
The only intercept is the y -intercept (0, 1). The graph correctly shows that the graph of f is increasing for
x < 1 and for x > 1. 4 2 -4 -2 2 4 6 -2 -4 C01S02.037: Note that f (x) is positive and close to zero for x large positive, so that the graph of f is just
above the x-axis—and nearly coincides with it—for such x. Similarly, the graph of f is just below the x-axis
and nearly coincides with it for x large negative. There is no graph where x = −2, but if x is slightly greater
than −2 then f (x) is the reciprocal of a very small positive number, so f (x) is large and nearly coincides
with the upper half of the vertical line x = −2. Similarly, if x is slightly less than −2, then the graph of
f (x) is large negative and nearly coincides with the the lower half of the line x = −3. The graph of f is
decreasing for x < −2 and for x > −2 and its only intercept is the y -intercept 0, 1 .
2
C01S02.038: Note that f (x) is very small but positive if x is either large positive or large negative. There
is no graph for x = 0, but if x is very close to zero, then f (x) is the reciprocal of a very small positive
number, and hence is large positive. So the graph of f is just above the x-axis and almost coincides with it
if | x | is large, whereas the graph of f almost coincides with the positive y -axis for x near zero. There are no
intercepts; the graph of f is increasing for x < 0 and is decreasing for x > 0.
3 C01S02.039: Note that f (x) > 0 for all x other than x = 1, where f is not deﬁned. If | x | is large, then
f (x) is near zero, so the graph of f almost coincides with the x-axis for such x. If x is very close to 1, then
f (x) is the reciprocal of a very small positive number, hence f (x) is large positive. So for such x, the graph
of f (x) almost coincides with the upper half of the vertical line x = 1. The only intercept is (0, 1).
C01S02.040: Note ﬁrst that f (x) is undeﬁned at x = 0. To handle the absolute value symbol, we look at
two cases: If x > 0, then f (x) = 1; if x < 0, then f (x) = −1. So the graph of f consists of the part of the
horizontal line y = 1 for which x > 0, together with the part of the horizontal line y = −1 for which x < 0.
C01S02.041: Note that f (x) is undeﬁned when 2x + 3 = 0; that is, when x = − 3 . If x is large positive,
2
then f (x) is positive and close to zero, so the graph of f is slightly above the x-axis and almost coincides
with the x-axis. If x is large negative, then f (x) is negative and close to zero, so the graph of f is slightly
below the x-axis and almost coincides with the x-axis. If x is slightly greater than − 3 then f (x) is very
2
large positive, so the graph of f almost coincides with the upper half of the vertical line x = − 3 . If x is
2
slightly less than − 3 then f (x) is very large negative, so the graph of f almost coincides with the lower half
2
of that vertical line. The graph of f is decreasing for x < − 3 and also decreasing for x > − 3 . The only
2
2
intercept is at 0, 1 .
3
C01S02.042: Note that f (x) is undeﬁned when 2x + 3 = 0; that is, when x = − 3 . If x is large positive
2
or large negative, then f (x) is positive and close to zero, so the graph of f is slightly above the x-axis and
almost coincides with the x-axis for | x | large. If x is close to − 3 then f (x) is very large positive, so the
2
graph of f almost coincides with the upper half of the vertical line x = − 3 . The graph of f is increasing for
2
x < − 3 and decreasing for x > − 3 . The only intercept is at 0, 1 .
2
2
9
√
C01S02.043: Given y = f (x) = 1 − x, note that y 0 and that y 2 = 1 − x; that is, x = 1 − y 2 . So the
graph is the part of the parabola x = 1 − y 2 for which y 0. This parabola has horizontal axis of symmetry
the y -axis, opens to the left (because the coeﬃcient of y 2 is negative), and has vertex (1, 0). Therefore the
graph of f is the upper half of this parabola.
C01S02.044: Note that the interval x < 1 is the domain of f , so there is no graph for x 1. If x is a large
negative number, then the denominator is large positive, so that its reciprocal f (x) is very small positive.
As x gets closer and closer to 1 (while x < 1), the denominator approaches zero, so its reciprocal f (x) takes
on arbitrarily large positive values. So the graph of f is slightly above the x-axis and almost coincides with
that axis for x large negative; the graph of f almost coincides with the upper half of the vertical line x = 1
for x near (and less than) 1. The graph of f is increasing for all x < 1 and (0, 1) is the only intercept.
C01S02.045: Note that f (x) is deﬁned only if 2x + 3 > 0; that is, if x > − 3 . Note also that f (x) > 0
2
for all such x. If x is large positive, then f (x) is positive but near zero, so the graph of f is just above the
x-axis and almost coincides with it. If x is very close to − 3 (but larger), then the denominator in f (x) is
2
very tiny positive, so the graph of f almost coincides with the upper half of the vertical line x = − 3 for
2
such x. The graph of f is decreasing for all x > − 3 .
2
C01S02.046: Given: f (x) = | 2x − 2 |. Case 1: x 1. Then 2x − 2 0, so that f (x) = 2x − 2. Because
f (1) = 0, the graph of f for x 1 consists of the part of the straight line through (1, 0) with slope 2. Case
2: x < 1. Then 2x − 2 < 0, so that f (x) = −2x + 2. The line y = −2x + 2 passes through (1, 0), so the
graph of f for x < 1 consists of the part of the straight line through (1, 0) with slope −2.
C01S02.047: Given: f (x) = | x | + x. If x 0 then f (x) = x + x = 2x, so if x 0 then the graph of f is
the part of the straight line through (0, 0) with slope 2 for which x 0. If x < 0 then f (x) = −x + x = 0,
so the rest of the graph of f coincides with the negative x-axis.
4 C01S02.048: Given: f (x) = | x − 3 |. If x 0 then f (x) = x − 3, so the graph of f consists of the straight
line through (3, 0) with slope 1 for x 3. If x < 0 then f (x) = −x + 3, so the graph of f consists of that
part of the straight line with slope −3 and y -intercept (0, 3). These two line segments ﬁt together perfectly
at the point (3, 0); there is no break or gap or discontinuity in the graph of f .
C01S02.049: Given: f (x) = | 2x + 5 |. The two cases are determined by the point where 2x + 5 changes
sign, which is where x = − 5 . If x − 5 , then f (x) = 2x + 5, so the graph of f consists of the part of the
2
2
line with slope 2 and y -intercept 5 for which x
− 5 . If x < − 5 , then the graph of f is the part of the
2
2
straight line y = −2x − 5 for which x < − 5 .
2
C01S02.050: The graph consists of the part of the line y = −x for which x < 0 together with the part of
the parabola y = x2 for which x 0. The two graphs ﬁt together perfectly at the point (0, 0); there is no
break, gap, jump, or discontinuity there. The graph is shown next. 4 3 2 1 -2 -1 1 2 C01S02.051: The graph consists of the horizontal line y = 0 for x < 0 together with the horizontal line
y = 1 for x 0. As x moves from left to right through the value zero, there is an abrupt and unavoidable
“jump” in the value of f from 0 to 1. That is, f is discontinuous at x = 0. To see part of the graph of f ,
enter the Mathematica commands
f [ x ] := If [ x < 0, 0, 1]
Plot [ f [ x ], {x, −3.5, 3.5 }, AspectRatio −> Automatic, PlotRange −> { { −3.5, 3.5 }, {−1.5, 2.5 }} ];
C01S02.052: The graph of f consists of the open intervals . . . , (−2, −1), (−1, 0), (0, 1), (1, 2), (2, 3),
. . . on the x-axis together with the isolated points . . . , (−1, 1), (0, 1), (1, 1), (2, 1), (3, 1), . . . . There is a
discontinuity at every integral value of x. A Mathematica plot of
f [ x ] := If [IntegerQ[x], 1, 0 ]
will produce a graph that’s completely diﬀerent because Mathematica, like most plotting programs, “connects
the dots,” in eﬀect assuming that every function is continuous at every point in its domain.
C01S02.053: Because the graph of the greatest integer function changes at each integral value of x, the
graph of f (x) = [[2x ]] changes twice as often—at each integral multiple of 1 . So as x moves from left to
2
right through such points, the graph jumps upward one unit. Thus there is a discontinuity at each integral
multiple of 1 . Because f is constant otherwise, these are the only discontinuities. To see something like the
2
graph of f , enter the Mathematica commands

and risers of a staircase, whereas only the treads are on the graph.
C01S02.054: The function f is undeﬁned at x = 1. The graph consists of the horizontal line y = 1 for
x > 1 together with the horizontal line y = −1 for x < 1. There is a discontinuity at x = 1.
C01S02.055: Given: f (x) = [[ x ]]. If n is an integer and n x < n + 1, then express x as x = n + ((x))
where ((x)) = x − [[ x ]] is the fractional part of x. Then f (x) = n − x = n − [n + ((x))] = − ((x)). So f (x) is the
negative of the fractional part of x. So as x ranges from n up to (but not including) n + 1, f (x) begins at 0
and drops linearly down not quite to −1. That is, on the interval (n, n + 1), the graph of f is the straight
line segment connecting the two points (n, 0) and (n + 1, −1) with the ﬁrst of these points included and the
second excluded. There is a discontinuity at each integral value of x.
C01S02.056: Given: f (x) = [[ x ]] + [[ − x ]] + 1. If x is an integer, then f (x) = x + (−x) + 1 = 1. If x is not
an integer, then choose the integer n such that n < x < n + 1. Then −(n + 1) < −x < −n, so
f (x) = [[ x ]] + [[ − x ]] + 1 = n − (n + 1) + 1 = 0.
So f is the same function as the one deﬁned in Problem 52 and has the same discontinuities: one at each
integral value of x.
C01S02.057: Because y = 2x2 − 6x + 7 = 2(x2 − 3x + 3.5) = 2(x2 − 3x + 2.25 + 1.25) = 2(x − 1.5)2 + 2.5,
the vertex of the parabola is at (1.5, 2.5).
C01S02.058: Because y = 2x2 − 10x + 11 = 2(x2 − 5x + 5.5) = 2(x2 − 5x + 6.25 − 0.75) = 2(x − 2.5)2 − 1.5,
the vertex of the parabola is at (2.5, −1.5).
C01S02.059:
Because y = 4x2 − 18x + 22 = 4(x2 − (4.5)x + 5.5) = 4(x2 − (4.5)x + 5.0625 + 0.4375)

= 4(x − 2.25) + 1.75, the vertex of the parabola is at (2.25, 1.75).
C01S02.060:
Because y = 5x2 − 32x + 49 = 5(x2 − (6.4)x + 9.8) = 5(x2 − (6.4)x + 10.24 − 0.44)
= 5(x − 3.2)2 − 2.2, the vertex of the parabola is at (3.2, −2.2).
C01S02.061: Because y = −8x2 + 36x − 32 = −8(x2 − (4.5)x + 4) = −8(x2 − (4.5)x + 5.0625 − 1.0625)
= −8(x − 2.25)2 + 8.5, the vertex of the parabola is at (2.25, 8.5).
C01S02.062: Because y = −5x2 − 34x − 53 = −5(x2 + (6.8)x + 10.6) = −5(x2 + (6.8)x + 11.56 − 0.96)
= −5(x + 3.4)2 + 4.8, the vertex of the parabola is at (−3.4, 4.8).

81 C01S02.065: To ﬁnd the maximum height y = −16t2 + 96t of the ball, we ﬁnd the vertex of the parabola:
y = −16(t2 − 6t) = −16(t2 − 6t + 9 − 9) = −16(t − 3)2 + 144. The vertex of the parabola is at (3, 144) and
therefore the maximum height of the ball is 144 ft.
6 C01S02.066: Recall that the area of the rectangle is given by y = A(x) = x(50 − x). To maximize A(x) we
ﬁnd the vertex of the parabola: y = 50x − x2 = −(x2 − 50x) = −(x2 − 50x + 625 − 625) = −(x − 25)2 + 625.
Because the vertex of the parabola is at (25, 625) and x = 25 is in the domain of the function A, the maximum
value of A(x) occurs at x = 25 and is A(25) = 625 (ft2 ).
C01S02.067: If two positive numbers x and y have sum 50, then y = 50 − x and x < 50 (because y > 0).
To maximize their product p(x) we ﬁnd the vertex of the parabola
y = p(x) = x(50 − x) = −(x2 − 50x)
= −(x2 − 50x + 625 − 625) = −(x − 25)2 + 625,
which is at (25, 625). Because 0 < 25 < 50, x = 25 is in the domain of the product function p(x) = x(50 − x),
and hence the maximum value of the product of x and y is p(25) = 625.
C01S02.068: Recall that if x new wells are drilled, then the resulting total production p is given by
p(x) = 4000 + 100x − 5x2 . To maximize p(x) we ﬁnd the vertex of the parabola
y = p(x) = −5x2 + 100x + 4000 = −5(x2 − 20x − 800)
= −5(x2 − 20x + 100 − 900) = −5(x − 10)2 + 4500.
The vertex of the parabola y = p(x) is therefore at (10, 4500). Because x = 10 is in the domain of p (it is
an integer between 0 and 40) and because the parabola opens downward (the coeﬃcient of x2 is negative),
x = 10 indeed maximizes p(x).
C01S02.069: The graph looks like the graph of y = | x | because the slope of the left-hand part is −1 and
that of the right-hand part is 1; but the vertex is shifted to (−1, 0), so—using the translation principle—the
graph in Fig. 1.2.29 must be the graph of f (x) = | x + 1 |, −2 x 2.
C01S02.070: Because the graph in Fig. 1.2.30 is composed
described most easily using a “three-part” function: if −3 2x + 6 f (x) = 2
if −2
1 (10 − 2x) if 2
3 of three straight-line segments, it can be
x < −2;
x < 2;
x 5. C01S02.071: The graph in Fig. 1.2.31 is much like the graph of the greatest integer function—it takes
on only integral values—but the “jumps” occur twice as often, so this must be very like—indeed, it is
exactly—the graph of f (x) = [[2x , −1 x < 2.
C01S02.072: The graph in Fig. 1.2.32 resembles the graph of the greatest integer function in that it takes
on all integral values and only those, but it is decreasing rather than increasing and the “jumps” occur
only at the even integers. Thus it must be the graph of something similar to f (x) = − [[ 1 x]], −4 x < 4.
2
Comparing values of f at x = −4, −3, −2.1, −2, −1, −0.1, 0, 1, 1.9, 2, 3, and 3.9 with points on the graph
is suﬃcient evidence that the graph of f is indeed that shown in the ﬁgure.
C01S02.073: Clearly x(t) = 45t for the ﬁrst hour; that is, for 0 t 1. In the second hour the graph
of x(t) must be a straight line (because of constant speed) of slope 75, thus with equation x(t) = 75t + C
for some constant C . The constant C is determined by the fact that 45t and 75t + C must be equal at time
7 t = 1, as the automobile cannot suddenly jump from one position to a completely diﬀerent position in an
instant. Hence 45 = 75 + C , so that C = −30. Therefore
x(t) = 45t
75t − 30 if 0 t
if 1 < t 1;
2. To see the graph of x(t), plot in Mathematica
x[t ] := If[t < 1, 45∗t, 75∗t − 30 ] on the interval 0 t 2. C01S02.074: The graph of x(t) will consist of three straight-line segments (because of the constant speeds),
the ﬁrst of slope 60 for 0
t
1, the second of slope zero for 1
t
1.5, and the third of slope 60 for
1.5
t
2.5. The ﬁrst pair must coincide when t = 1 and the second pair must coincide when t = 1.5
because the graph of x(t) can have no discontinuities. So if we write x(t) = 60 for 0 t 1, we must have
x(t) = 60 for 1 t 1.5. Finally, x(t) = 60t + C for some constant C if 1.5 t 2.5, but the latter must
equal 60 when t = 1.5, so that C = −30. Hence if 0 t 1, 60t x(t) = 60
if 1 < t 1.5, 60t − 30
if 1.5 < t 2.5. The graph of x(t) is shown next.

ﬁrst must have slope 60, so we have x(t) = 60t for 0 t 1. The second must have slope −30, negative
because you’re driving in the reverse direction, so x(t) = −30t + C for some constant C if 1 t 3. The
two segments must coincide when t = 1, so that 60 = −30 + C . Thus C = 90 and thus a formula for x(t) is
x(t) = 60t
90 − 30t if 0 t
if 1 < t 1,
3. C01S02.076: We need three straight line segments, the ﬁrst of slope 60 for 0
t
0.5, the second of
slope −60 for 0.5
t
1, and the third of slope 60 for 1
t
3. Clearly the ﬁrst must be x(t) = 60t
for 0 t 0.5. The second must have the form x(t) = −60t + C for some constant C , and the ﬁrst and
second must coincide when t = 0.5, so that 30 = −30 + C , and thus C = 60. The third segment must have
the form x(t) = 60t + K for some constant K , and the second and third must coincide when t = 1, so that
0 = 60 + K , and so K = −60. Therefore a formula for x(t) is
8 The graph of x(t) is shown next. 60t x(t) = 60 − 60t 60t − 60 if 0 t 0.5,

79 − 34

45 Thus C (p) = 3p + K for some constant K . So 3 · 34+ K = 170, and it follows that K = 68. So C (p) = 3p +68,
1 p 100, if C is to be expressed in cents. If C is to be expressed in dollars, we have
C (p) = (0.03)p + 0.68, 1 p 100. The “ﬁxed cost” is incurred regardless of the number of pamphlets printed; it is $0.68. The “marginal cost”
of printing each additional page of the pamphlet is the coeﬃcient $0.03 of p.
C01S02.078: We are given C (x) = a + bx where a and b are constants; we are also given
99.45 = C (207) = a + 207b and 79.15 = C (149) = a + 149b.
Subtraction of the second equation from the ﬁrst yields 20.3 = 58b, so that b = 0.35. Substitution of this
datum in the ﬁrst of the preceding equations then yields
99.45 = a + 207 · 0.35 = a + 72.45, so that a = 27. Therefore C (x) = 27 + (0.35)x, 0
x < +∞. Thus if you drive 175 miles on the third day, the cost for
that day will be C (175) = 88.25 (in dollars). The slope b = 0.35 represents a cost of $0.35 per mile. The
C -intercept a = 27 represents the daily base cost of renting the car. In civil engineering and in some branches
of applied mathematics, the intercept a = 27 is sometimes called the oﬀset, representing the vertical amount
by which C (0) is “oﬀset” from zero.
C01S02.079: Suppose that the letter weighs x ounces, 0 < x
16. If x
8, then the cost is simply 8
(dollars). If 8 < x
9, add $0.80; if 9 < x
10, add $1.60, and so on. Very roughly, one adds $0.80 if
9 [[ x − 8]] = 1, $1.60 if [[ x − 8]] = 2, and so on. But this isn’t quite right—we are using the Floor function of
Section 1.1, whereas we should really be using the Ceiling function. By the result of Problem 51 of that
section, we see that instead of cost
C (x) = 8 + (0.8)[[ x − 8]]
for 8 < x 16, we should instead write
C (x) = 8 if 0 < x 8, 8 − (0.8)[[ −(x − 8)]] if 8 < x 16. 12.5 15 The graph of the cost function is shown next. 15

2.5 5 10 15 20 C01S02.081: Boyle’s law states that under conditions of constant temperature, the product of the pressure
p and the volume V of a ﬁxed mass of gas remains constant. If we assume that pV = c, a constant, for the
given data, we ﬁnd that the given ﬁve data points yield the values c = 1.68, 1.68, 1.675, 1.68, and 1.62. The
10 average of these is 1.65 (to two places) and should be a good estimate of the true value of c. Alternatively,
you can use a computer algebra program to ﬁnd c; in Mathematica, for example, the command Fit will ﬁt
given data points to a sum of constant multiples of functions you specify. We used the commands
data = {{0.25, 6.72}, {1.0, 1.68}, {2.5, 0.67}, {4.0, 0.42}, {6.0, 0.27}}; Fit [ data, { 1/p }, p ]
to ﬁnd that V (p) = 1.67986
p yields the best least-squares ﬁt of the given data to a function of the form V (p) = c/p. We rounded the
numerator to 1.68 to ﬁnd the estimates V (0.5) ≈ 3.36 and V (5) ≈ 0.336 (L). The graph of V (p) is shown
next.
8 6 4 2 1 2 3 4 5 6 C01S02.082: It seems reasonable to assume that the maximum average temperature occurs on July 15
and the minimum on January 15, so that a multiple of a cosine function should ﬁt the given data if we take
t = 0 on July 15. So we assume a solution of the form
T (t) = c1 + c2 cos 2π t
365 . Also assuming that the average year-round daily temperature is the average of the minimum and the maximum, we ﬁnd that c1 = 61.25, so we could ﬁnd c2 by the averaging method of Problem 81. Alternatively,
we could use the Fit command in Mathematica to ﬁnd both c1 and c2 simultaneously as follows:
data = {{0, 79.1}, {62, 70.2}, {123, 52.3}, {184, 43.4}, {224, 52.2}, {285, 70.1}}; Fit [ data, { 1, Cos[2∗Pi∗t/365] }, t ]
The result is the formula T (t) = 62.9602 + (17.437) cos 2π t
365 . The values predicted by this function at the six dates in question are [approximately] 80.4, 71.4, 53.9, 45.5,
49.8, and 66.3. Not bad, considering we are dealing with weather, a most unpredictable phenomenon. The
graph of T (t) is shown next. Units on the horizontal axis are days, measured from July 15. Units on
11 the vertical axis are degrees Fahrenheit. Remember that these are average daily temperatures; it is not
uncommon for a winter low in Athens to be below 28◦ F and for a summer high to be as much as 92◦ F.

C01S03.001: The domain of f is R, the set of all real numbers; so is the domain of g , but g (x) = 0 when
x = 1 and when x = −3. So the domain of f + g and f · g is the set R and the domain of f /g is the set of

x does. Because f (0) = 0, the graph does not match Fig. 1.3.26, so it must match Fig. 1.3.30.
C01S03.008: f (x) = 1 + 4x − x3 has one, two, or three zeros, approaches −∞ as x → + ∞ and approaches
+ ∞ as x → −∞. Hence its graph must be the one shown in Fig. 1.3.28.
C01S03.009: f (x) = x4 − 5x3 + 13x + 1 has four or fewer zeros and approaches + ∞ as x approaches either
+ ∞ or −∞. Hence its graph must be the one shown in Fig. 1.3.31.
C01S03.010: f (x) = 2x5 − 10x3 + 6x − 1 has between one and ﬁve zeros, approaches + ∞ as x does,
and approaches −∞ as x does. So its graph might be the one shown in Fig. 1.3.26, the one in Fig. 1.3.29,
or the one in Fig. 1.3.30. But f (0) = 0, so Fig. 1.3.26 is ruled out, and we have already found that the
graph in Fig. 1.3.30 matches the function in Problem 7. Therefore the graph of f must be the one shown
in Fig. 1.3.29. Alternatively, the observation that f (x) changes sign on the ﬁve intervals [−3, −2], [−1, 0],
[0, 0.5], [0.5, 1], and [2, 3] shows that f (x) has ﬁve zeros; therefore the graph must be the one shown in

C01S03.011: f (x) = 16 + 2x2 − x4 approaches −∞ as x approaches either + ∞ or −∞, so its graph must

if x > 0 and f (x) < 0 if x < 0, which rules out every graph except for the one shown in Fig. 1.3.26.
C01S03.013: The graph of f has vertical asymptotes at x = −1 and at x = 2, so its graph must be the

2 − x > 0, then 0 < x < 2. If x < 0 and 2 − x < 0, then x < 0 and x > 2, which is impossible. Hence the
domain of f is the closed interval [0, 2]. So the graph of f must be the one shown in Fig. 1.3.36.
√
C01S03.019: The domain of f (x) = x2 − 2x consists of those numbers x for which x2 − 2x
0; that
is, x(x − 2) 0. This occurs when x and x − 2 have the same sign and also when either is zero. If x > 0
and x − 2 > 0, then x > 2; if x < 0 and x − 2 < 0, then x < 0. So the domain of f is the union of the two
intervals (−∞, 0] and [2, +∞). So the graph of f must be the one shown in Fig. 1.3.39.
C01S03.020: The domain of f (x) = 2(x2 − 2x)1/3 is the set R of all real numbers because every real
number has a [unique] cube root. By the analysis in the solution of Problem 19, x2 − 2x < 0 if 0 < x < 2
and x2 − 2x 0 otherwise. Hence f (x) < 0 if 0 < x < 2 and f (x) 0 otherwise. This makes it certain that
the graph of f is the one shown in Fig. 1.3.37.

−20 and that the graph crosses the x-axis somewhere in the vicinity of x = 0. The window −3

shows that something interesting happens near x = −1 and that there is a zero near 1.8. The window
−1.4 x 0.4 shows that there are zeros near −1.1 and −0.8. Closer approximations to these four zeros
are −19.88, −1.09, −0.79, and 1.76.
C01S03.029: The viewing window −11 x 8 shows that there are ﬁve zeros, although the two near 2.5
may be only one. The window 1.5 x 3.5 shows that there are in fact two zeros near 2.5. Approximate
values of the ﬁve zeros are −10.20, −7.31, 1.98, 3.25, and 7.28.
C01S03.030: The viewing window −16 x 16 shows that there are zeros near ± 15 and perhaps a few
more near x = 0. The window −4 x 4 shows that there are in fact four zeros near x = 0. Approximate
values of the six are ± 15.48, ± 3.04, and ± 1.06.
C01S03.031: Every time c increases by 1, the graph is raised 1 unit (in the positive y -direction), but there
is no other change.
3 C01S03.032: The graph starts with two “bends” when c = −5. As c increases the bends become narrower
and narrower and disappear when c = 0. Then the graph gets steeper and steeper. See the following ﬁgure.

-10 C01S03.033: The graph always passes through (0, 0) and is tangent to the x-axis there. When c = −5
there is another zero at x = 5. As c increases this zero shifts to the left until it coincides with the one at
x = 0 when c = 0. At this point the “bend” in the graph disappears. As c increases from 1 to 5, the bend
reappears to the left of the x-axis and the second zero reappears at −c.
C01S03.034: The graph is always tangent to the x-axis at x = 0 and is always symmetric around the
y -axis. When c = −5 there is another pair of zeros near ± 2.2. As c increases these zeros move closer to
x = 0 and the bends in the graph get smaller and smaller. They disappear when c = 0 and, at the same
time, the zeros merge with the one at x = 0. Thereafter the graph simply becomes steeper and steeper. See
the following ﬁgure. c=5 15 10 5 -3 -2 c = –5 -1 1 2 3 -5 C01S03.035: The graph is always symmetric around the origin (and, consequently, always passes through
the origin). When c = −5 there is another pair of zeros near ± 2.2. As c increases the graph develops positive
slope at x = 0, two more bends, and two more zeros on either side of the origin. They move outward and,
when c = −2, they coincide with the outer pair of zeros, which have also been moving toward the origin.
They reach the origin when c = 0 and thereafter the graph simply becomes steeper and steeper. C01S03.036: As c increases the “mountain” around the y -axis gets narrower and steeper. See the following

C01S03.038: The length of the airfoil is approximately 1.0089 and its width is approximately 0.200057. 5 Section 1.4
C01S04.001: Because g (x) = 2x increases—ﬁrst slowly, then rapidly—on the set of all real numbers, with
values in the range (0, + ∞), the given function f (x) = 2x − 1 must increase in the same way, but with
values in the range (−1, + ∞). Therefore its graph is the one shown in Fig. 1.4.29.
C01S04.002: Given: f (x) = 2 − 3−x . The graph of g (x) = 3x increases, ﬁrst slowly, then rapidly, on its
domain the set R of all real numbers. Hence h(x) = 3−x decreases, ﬁrst rapidly, then slowly, on R, with
values in the interval (0, + ∞). Hence j (x) = −3−x increases, ﬁrst rapidly, then slowly, on R, with values
in the interval (−∞, 0). Therefore f (x) = 2 − 3−x increases, ﬁrst rapidly, then slowly, on R, with values in
the interval (−∞, 2). Therefore its graph must be the one shown in Fig. 1.4.33.
C01S04.003: The graph of f (x) = 1 + cos x is simply the graph of the ordinary cosine function raised 1
unit—moved upward 1 unit in the positive y -direction. Hence its graph is the one shown in Fig. 1.4.27.
C01S04.004: The graph of g (x) = 2 sin x resembles the graph of the ordinary sine function, but with
values ranging from −2 to 2. The graph of h(x) = −2 sin x is the same, but turned “upside down.” Add 2
to get f (x) = 2 − 2 sin x and the graph of h is raised 2 units, thus taking values in the range [0, 4]. So the
graph of f is the one shown in Fig. 1.4.32.
C01S04.005: The graph of g (x) = 2 cos x resembles the graph of the cosine function, but with all values
doubled, so that its range is the interval [−2, 2]. Add 1 to get f (x) = 1 + 2 cos x and the range is now the
interval [−1, 3]. So the graph of f is the one shown in Fig. 1.4.35.
C01S04.006: Turn the graph of the sine function upside down, then add 2 to get f (x) = 2 − sin x, with
range the interval [1, 3]. Hence the graph of f is the one shown in Fig. 1.4.28.
C01S04.007: The graph of g (x) = 2x increases, ﬁrst slowly, then rapidly, on the set of all real numbers,
with range the interval (0, + ∞). So its reciprocal h(x) = 2−x decreases, ﬁrst rapidly, then slowly, with the
same domain and range. Multiply by x to obtain f (x) = x · 2−x . The eﬀect of multiplication by x is to change
large positive values into large negative values for x < 0, to cause f (0) to be zero, and to multiply very small
positive values (of 2−x ) by somewhat large positive values (of x) for x > 0, resulting in values that are still
small and positive, even when x is quite large. So the graph of f must increase rapidly through negative
values, pass through (0, 0), rise to a maximum, then decrease rapidly through positive values toward zero.
Hence the graph of f must be the one shown in Fig. 1.4.31.
C01S04.008: The graph of g (x) = log x has domain the set (0, + ∞) of all positive real numbers; it rises,
ﬁrst rapidly, then more slowly, with range the set of all real numbers, and its graph passes through the point
(1, 0). Division by x > 0 will have little eﬀect if x is near zero, as this will merely multiply large negative
values of log x by large positive numbers. But when x is large positive, it will be much larger than log x,
and thus the graph of f (x) will rise to a maximum somewhere to the right of x = 1, then decreases fairly
rapidly toward zero. So the graph of f is the one shown in Fig. 1.4.36.
C01S04.009: The graph of g (x) = 1 + cos 6x will resemble the graph of the cosine function, but raised 1
unit (so that its range is the interval [0, 2]) and with much more “activity” on the x-axis (because of the
factor 6). Division by 1 + x2 will have little eﬀect until x is no longer close to zero, and then the eﬀect will
be to divide values of g (x) by larger and larger positive numbers, so that the cosine oscillations have a much
smaller range that 0 x 2; they will range from 0 to smaller and smaller positive values as | x | increases.
So the graph of f is the one shown in Fig. 1.4.34.
1 C01S04.010: The graph of g (x) = sin 10x resembles that of the sine function, but with much more
“activity” because of the factor 10. Multiply by the rapidly decreasing positive numbers 2−x and you will
see the sine oscillations decreasing from the range [−1, 1] when x is near zero to very small oscillations—near
zero—as x increases. So the graph of f is the one shown in Fig. 1.4.30.
C01S04.011: Given f (x) = 1 − x2 and g (x) = 2x + 3,
f (g (x)) = 1 − (g (x))2 = 1 − (2x + 3)2 = −4x2 − 12x − 8 and g (f (x)) = 2f (x) + 3 = 2(1 − x2 ) + 3 = −2x2 + 5.
C01S04.012: Given f (x) = −17 and g (x) = | x |,
f (g (x)) = −17 and g (f (x)) = | f (x) | = | − 17 | = 17.
The ﬁrst result is a little puzzling until one realizes that to obtain f (g (x)), one substitutes g (x) for x for every
occurrence of x in the formula for f . No x there means there’s no place to put g (x). Indeed, f (h(x)) = −17
no matter what the formula of h.
C01S04.013: If f (x) = √ x2 − 3 and g (x) = x2 + 3, then f (g (x)) = (g (x))2 − 3 = g (f (x)) = (f (x))2 + 3 = (x2 + 3)2 − 3 =
x2 − 3 2 x4 + 6x2 + 6 and + 3 = x2 − 3 + 3 = x2 . The domain of f (g ) is the set R of all real numbers, but the domain of g (f ) is the same as the domain of f ,
the set of all real numbers x such that x2 3.

f (g (x)) = (g (x))3 − 4 = (x + 4)1/3
1/3 g (f (x)) = (f (x) + 4) 3 = x3 − 4 + 4 −4=x+4−4=x

unusual case in which f (g ) and g (f ) are the same function.

f (g (x)) = f (cos x) = cos x and

g (f (x)) = g x = cos x .
C01S04.017: If f (x) = sin x and g (x) = x3 , then
f (g (x)) = f x3 = sin x3 = sin x3 and 3 g (f (x)) = g (sin x) = (sin x) = sin3 x.
We note in passing that sin x3 and sin3 x don’t mean the same thing!
C01S04.018: If f (x) = sin x and g (x) = cos x, then f (g (x)) = f (cos x) = sin(cos x) and g (f (x)) =
g (sin x) = cos(sin x).
C01S04.019: If f (x) = 1 + x2 and g (x) = tan x, then f (g (x)) = f (tan x) = 1 + (tan x)2 = 1 + tan2 x and
g (f (x)) = g (1 + x2 ) = tan(1 + x2 ).
C01S04.020: If f (x) = 1 − x2 and g (x) = sin x, then
f (g (x)) = f (sin x) = 1 − (sin x)2 = 1 − sin2 x = cos2 x and
g (f (x)) = g (1 − x2 ) = sin(1 − x2 ).
Note: The answers to Problems 21 through 30 are not unique. We have generally chosen the simplest and
most natural answer.
C01S04.021: h(x) = (2 + 3x)2 = (g (x))k = f (g (x)) where f (x) = xk , k = 2, and g (x) = 2 + 3x.

C01S04.024: h(x) = (1 + x4 )17 = (g (x))17 = f (g (x)) where f (x) = xk , k = 17, and g (x) = 1 + x4 .
C01S04.025: h(x) = (5 − x2 )3/2 = (g (x))3/2 = f (g (x)) where f (x) = xk , k = 3 , and g (x) = 5 − x2 .

g (x) = 4x − 6. Alternatively, h(x) = (g (x))4 = f (g (x)) where f (x) = xk , k = 4, and g (x) = (4x − 6)1/3 .
C01S04.027: h(x) = (x + 1)−1 = (g (x))−1 = f (g (x)) where f (x) = xk , k = −1, and g (x) = x + 1.
C01S04.028: h(x) = (1 + x2 )−1 = (g (x))−1 = f (g (x)) where f (x) = xk , k = −1, and g (x) = 1 + x2 .

C01S04.042: Under the assumption that the interest is compounded continuously at a rate of 7.696%

real numbers other than 2.
C01S0M.003: The domain of f consists of those real numbers for which the denominator is nonzero; that
is, the set of all real numbers other than ± 3.
C01S0M.004: Because x2 + 1 is never zero, the domain of f is the set R of all real numbers.
√

C01S0M.005: If x 0, then x exists; there is no obstruction to adding 1 to x nor to cubing the sum.
Hence the domain of f is the set [0, + ∞) of all nonnegative real numbers.
C01S0M.006: Given:
f (x) = x+1
.
x2 − 2x The only obstruction to computing the number f (x) is the possibility that the denominator is zero. Thus we
must eliminate from the set of all real numbers those for which x2 − 2x = 0; that is, x(x − 2) = 0. Therefore
the domain of f is the set of all real numbers other than 0 and 2.

Hence the domain of f is the interval − ∞, 0; 2
3. . C01S0M.008: In order that the square root is deﬁned, we require 9 − x2 0; we also need the denominator
in f (x) to be nonzero, so we further require that 9 − x2 = 0. Hence 9 − x2 > 0; that is, x2 < 9, so that
−3 < x < 3. Hence the domain of f is the open interval (−3, 3).
C01S0M.009: Regardless of the value of x, it’s always possible to subtract 2 from x, to subtract x from
4, and to multiply the results. Hence the domain of f is the set R of all real numbers.
C01S0M.010: The domain of f consists of those real numbers x for which (x − 2)(4 − x) is nonnegative.
That is, x − 2 and 4 − x are both positive, or x − 2 and 4 − x are both negative, or either is zero. First case:
x − 2 > 0 and 4 − x > 0. Then 2 < x < 4, so the interval (2, 4) is part of the domain of f . Second case:
x − 2 < 0 and 4 − x < 0. These inequalities imply that x < 2 and 4 < x. No real numbers satisfy both
these inequalities. So the second case contributes no numbers to the domain of f . Third case: x − 2 = 0 or
4 − x = 0. That is, x = 2 or x = 4. Therefore the domain of f is the closed interval [2, 4].

C01S0M.015: If a cube has edge length x, then its volume is V = x3 and its total surface area is S = 6x2
(because each of its six faces has area x2 ). Hence x = S/6 , and therefore
V (S ) = S
6 3 = S
6 3/2 , 0 < S < + ∞. Under certain circumstances it would be both permissible and desirable to let the domain of V be the interval
[0, + ∞).
C01S0M.016: Let r denote the radius, and h the height, of the cylinder. Then its volume V and total
surface area A are given by
V = πr2 h and A = 2π rh + 2π r2 (look inside the front cover of the textbook). In this problem we are given h = r, so that V = π r3 and
A = 4π r2 . Therefore

of length h. Because T is a right triangle, we see that

100 − x. Thus if z is the radius of the circle, then 2π z = 100 − x, so that z = (100 − x)/(2π ). The area of

C01S0M.019: The slope of L is 13 − 5
= 2, so an equation of L is
1 − (−3) y − 5 = 2(x + 3); that is, y = 2x + 11. C01S0M.020: An equation of L is y − (−1) = −3(x − 4); that is, 3x + y = 11.
C01S0M.021: The point (0, −5) lies on L, so an equation of L is
3 y − (−5) = 1
(x − 0);
2 alternatively, 2y + 10 = x. C01S0M.022: The equation 3x − 2y = 4 of the other line may be written in the form y = 3 x − 2, revealing
2
that it and L have slope 3 . Hence an equation of L is
2
y − (−3) = 3
(x − 2);
2 that is, y= 3
x − 6.
2 C01S0M.023: The equation y − 2x = 10 may be written in the form y = 2x + 10, showing that it has
slope 2. Hence the perpendicular line L has slope − 1 . Therefore an equation of L is
2
1
y − 7 = − (x − (−3));
2 that is, x + 2y = 11. C01S0M.024: The segment S joining (1, −5) and (3, −1) has slope (−1 − (−5))/(3 − 1) = 2 and midpoint
(2, −3), and hence L has slope − 1 and passes through (2, −3). So an equation of L is
2
1
y − (−3) = − (x − 2);
2 that is, x + 2y = −4. C01S0M.025: The graph of y = f (x) = 2 − 2x − x2 is a parabola opening downward. The only such graph
is shown in Fig. 1.MP.6.
C01S0M.026: Given: f (x) = x3 − 4x2 + 5. Because f (−1) = 0, f (1) = 2 > 0 > −3 = f (2), and
f (3) = −4 < 0 < 5 = f (4), the graph of f crosses the x-axis at x = −1, between x = 1 and x = 2, and
between x = 3 and x = 4. Hence the graph of f is the one shown in Fig. 1.MP.9.
C01S0M.027: Given: f (x) = x4 − 4x3 + 5. Because the graph of f has no vertical asymptotes and
because f (x) approaches + ∞ as x approaches either + ∞ or −∞, the graph of f must be the one shown in
Fig. 1.MP.4.
C01S0M.028: Given:
f (x) = 5
5
=
.
x2 − x − 6
(x − 3)(x + 2) The denominator in f (x) is zero when x = 3 and when x = −2 (and the numerator is not zero), so the graph
of y = f (x) has vertical asymptotes at x = −2 and at x = 3. Also f (x) approaches zero as x approaches
either + ∞ or −∞. Therefore the graph of y = f (x) must be the one shown in Fig. 1.MP.11.
C01S0M.029: Given:
f (x) = x2 5

−x+6
4x − 4x + 1 + 23
(2x − 1)2 + 23 The algebra displayed here shows that the denominator in f (x) is never zero, so there are no vertical
asymptotes. It also shows that the maximum value of f (x) occurs when the denominator is minimal; that
is, when x = 1 . Finally, f (x) approaches zero as x approaches either + ∞ or −∞. So the graph of y = f (x)
2
must be the one shown in Fig. 1.MP.3.
C01S0M.030: If y = f (x) = √ 8 + 2x − x2 , then
4 y 2 = 8 + 2x − x2 ; x2 − 2x + 1 + y 2 = 9; (x − 1)2 + (y − 0)2 = 32 .
The last is the equation of a circle with center (1, 0) and radius 3. But y
half of that circle, and it is shown in Fig. 1.MP.10. 0, so the graph of f is the upper C01S0M.031: Given: f (x) = 2−x − 1. The graph of y = 2x is an increasing exponential function, so the
graph of y = 2−x is a decreasing exponential function, approaching 0 as x approaches + ∞. So the graph of
f approaches −1 as x approaches + ∞. Moreover, f (0) = 0. Therefore the graph of f is the one shown in
Fig. 1.MP.7.
C01S0M.032: The graph of f (x) = log10 (x + 1) is obtained from the graph of g (x) = log10 x by translation
one unit to the left; note also that f (0) = 0. Therefore the graph of f is the one shown in Fig. 1.MP.2.
C01S0M.033: The graph of y = 3 sin x oscillates between its minimum value −3 and its maximum value
3, so the graph of f (x) = 1 + 3 sin x oscillates between −2 and 4. This graph is shown in Fig. 1.MP.8.
C01S0M.034: The graph of f (x) = x + 3 sin x viewed at a great distance resembles the graph of y = x. A
closer view shows oscillations, due to the sine function, superposed on the graph of y = x. Thus the graph
of f is the one shown in Fig. 1.MP.5.
C01S0M.035: The graph of 2x − 5y = 7 is the straight line with x-intercept 7
2 and y -intercept − 7 .
5 C01S0M.036: If | x − y | = 1, then x − y = 1 or x − y = −1. The graph of the ﬁrst of these is the straight
line y = x − 1 with slope 1 and y -intercept −1; the graph of the second is the straight line y = x + 1 with
slope 1 and y -intercept 1. So the graph of | x − y | = 1 consists of these two parallel lines.
C01S0M.037: We complete the square: x2 − 2x + 1 + y 2 = 1, so that (x − 1)2 + (y − 0)2 = 12 . Thus the
graph of the given equation is the circle with center (1, 0) and radius 1.
C01S0M.038: We complete the square in x and in y to obtain
x2 + 6x + 9 + y 2 − 4y + 4 = 16; (x + 3)2 + (y − 2)2 = 42 . Therefore the graph of the given equation is the circle with center (−3, 2) and radius 4.
C01S0M.039: The graph is a parabola opening upward. To ﬁnd its vertex, we complete the square:
y = 2 x2 − 2x − 1
2 = 2 x2 − 2x + 1 − 3
2 = 2(x − 1)2 − 3. So the vertex of this parabola is at the point (1, −3).
C01S0M.040: The graph is a parabola opening downward. To ﬁnd its vertex, we complete the square:
y = 4x − x2 = −(x2 − 4x) = −(x2 − 4x + 4 − 4) = 4 − (x − 2)2 .
5 Thus the vertex of this parabola is at the point (2, 4).

that the graph of f has its “vertex” at the point (3, 0).
C01S0M.044: Given: f (x) = | x − 3 | + | x + 2 |. If x
3 then f (x) = x − 3 + x + 2 = 2x − 1, so the
graph is the unbounded line segment with slope 2 and endpoint (3, 5) for x
3. If −2
x
3 then
f (x) = 3 − x + x + 2 = 5, so another part of the graph is the horizontal line segment joining (−2, 5) with
(3, 5). If x −2 then f (x) = 3 − x − x − 2 = −2x + 1, so the rest of the graph is the unbounded line segment
with slope −2 and endpoint (−2, 5) for x −2. The graph is shown next.

|a + b + c| = |(a + b) + c| |a + b| + |c| |a| + |b| + |c| . .
C01S0M.046: Suppose that a and b are arbitrary real numbers. Then |a| = |(a − b) + b|
Therefore |a| −| b| |a − b|. |a − b| + |b|. C01S0M.047: If x − 3 > 0 and x + 2 > 0, then x > 3 and x > −2, so x > 3. If x − 3 < 0 and x + 2 < 0,
then x < 3 and x < −2, so x < −2. Answer: (−∞, −2) ∪ (3, ∞).
C01S0M.048: (x − 1)(x − 2) < 0: x − 1 and x − 2 have opposite signs, so either x < 1 and x > 2 (which
leads to no values of x) or x > 1 and x < 2. Answer: (1, 2).
C01S0M.049: (x − 4)(x + 2) > 0: Either x > 4 and x > −2 (so that x > 4) or x < 4 and x < −2 (so that
x < −2). Answer: (−∞, −2) ∪ (4, + ∞).
C01S0M.050: 2x 15 − x2 : x2 + 2x − 15 0, so (x − 3)(x + 5)
x + 5 0. Thus x 3 or x −5. Answer: (−∞, −5 ] ∪ [ 3, + ∞). 0. Now x + 5 > x − 3, so x − 3 0 or C01S0M.051: The viewing window −3 x 8 shows a solution near −1 and another near 5. Gradual
magniﬁcation of the region near −1 shows a solution between −1.1405 and −1.1395. Similarly, the other
solution is between 6.1395 and 6.1405. So the solutions are approximately −1.140 and 6.140.
C01S0M.052: The viewing window −2
x
5 shows a solution near −1 and another near 4. To
approximate the ﬁrst more closely, we used the method of repeated tabulation on [−1.0, −0.8], then on
[−0.88, −0, 86], then on [−0.872, −0.870]. To approximate the second, we used the interval [4.1, 4.3], then
[4.20, 4.22], then [4.204, 4.206]. To three places, the solutions are −0.872 and 4.205.
C01S0M.053: The viewing window 0.5 x 3 shows one solution near 1.2 and another near 2.3. The
method of repeated tabulation with successive intervals [1.1, 1.3], [1.18, 1.20], and [1.190, 1.192] yields the
approximation 1.191 to the ﬁrst solution. The successive intervals [2.2, 2.4], [2.30, 2.32], and [2.308, 2.310]
yield the approximation 2.309 to the second solution.
C01S0M.054: The viewing window −7

method of repeated tabulation with successive intervals [−6.1, −5.9], [−5.98, −5.96], and [−5.974, −5.970]
yield the approximation −5.972 to the ﬁrst solution. Simlarly, we ﬁnd the second solution to be approximately
1.172.
C01S0M.055: The viewing window −6
x
2 shows one solution near −5 and another near 1. The
method of repeated tabulation with successive intervals [−5.1, −4.9], [−5.04, −5.02], and [−5.022, −5.020],
then with the intervals [0.8, 1.0], [0.88, 0.90], and [0.896, 0.898], yields the two approximations −5.021 and
0.896 to the two solutions.
C01S0M.056: The viewing window −11 x 3 shows one solution near −10 and another near 1.7. The
method of repeated tabulation, ﬁrst with the intervals [−10.0, −9.9], [−9.97, −9.96], and [−9.963, −9.962],
then with [1.7, 1.8], [1.73, 1.74], and [1.739, 1.741], yields the two approximations −9.962 and 1.740 to the
two solutions.
7 C01S0M.057: The viewing window 2 x 3 shows the low point with x-coordinate near 2.5. The method
of repeated tabulation, using the successive intervals [2.4, 2.6], [2.48, 2.52], and [2.496, 2.504], indicates that
the low point is very close to (2.5, 0.75).
C01S0M.058: The viewing window −1
x

method of repeated tabulation, with the successive intervals [1.6, 1.8], [1.64, 1.68], and [1.664, 1.672], shows
that the low point is quite close to (1.66, 2.67).
C01S0M.059: The viewing window −0.5 x 4 shows that the low point has x-coordinate near 1.8. The
method of repeated tabulation, with the successive intervals [1.7, 1.9], [1.72, 1.78], and [1.744, 1.756], shows
that the low point is very close to (1.75, −1.25).
C01S0M.060: The viewing window −5 x 1 shows that the low point has x-coordinate near −2.5. The
method of repeated tabulation indicates that the low point is very close to (−2.4, 6.2).
C01S0M.061: The viewing window −5 x 1 show that the x-coordinate of the low point is close to
−2. The method of repeated tabulation shows that the low point is very close to (−2.0625, 0.96875).
C01S0M.062: The viewing window −7 x 1 shows that the x-coordinate of the low point is close to
−4. The method of repeated tabulation indicates that the low point is very close to (−4.111, 3.889).
C01S0M.063: The small rectangle has dimensions 10 − 4x by 7 − 2x; (7)(10) − (10 − 4x)(7 − 2x) = 20,
which leads to the quadratic equation 8x2 − 48x + 20 = 0. One solution of this equation is approximately
5.5495, which must be rejected; it is too large. The value of x is the other solution: x ≈ 0.4505.
C01S0M.064: After shrinking, the tablecloth has dimensions 60 − x by 35 − x. The area of this rectangle
is 93% of the area of the original tablecloth, so (60 − x)(35 − x) = (0.93)(35)(60). The larger solution of this
quadratic equation is approximately 93.43, which we reject as too large. Answer: x ≈ 1.573.
C01S0M.065: The viewing window −4 x C01S0M.066: The viewing window −3
x4 > | − 3x2 + 4x − 5 | if | x | > 3. x 4 shows three solutions (and there can be no more).

viewing window −2.2 x 2.2 shows three solutions, and there can be no more because | x3 − 3x + 1 | > 1
if | x | > 2.2.
C01S0M.068: We plotted y = cos x and y = x4 − x simultaneously to see where they crossed. The viewing
window −2 x 2 shows two solutions, and there can be no more because x4 − x > 1 if | x | > 2.
C01S0M.069: We plotted y = cos x and y = log10 x simultaneously to see where they crossed. The viewing
window 0.1 x 14 shows three solutions, and there can be no more because log10 x < −1 if 0 < x < 0.1
and log10 x > 1 if x > 14.
C01S0M.070: We plotted y = 10−x and y = log10 x simultaneously to see where they crossed. The
viewing window 0.1 x 3 shows one solution, and there can be no more because the exponential function
is decreasing for all x and the logarithm function is increasing for all x > 0. 8 Section 2.1
C02S01.001: f (x) = 0 · x2 + 0 · x + 5, so m(a) = 0 · 2 · a + 0 ≡ 0. In particular, m(2) = 0, so the tangent
line has equation y − 5 = 0 · (x − 0); that is, y ≡ 5.
C02S01.002: f (x) = 0 · x2 + 1 · x + 0, so m(a) = 0 · 2 · a + 1 ≡ 1. In particular, m(2) = 1, so the tangent
line has equation y − 2 = 1 · (x − 2); that is, y = x.
C02S01.003: Because f (x) = 1 · x2 + 0 · x + 0, the slope-predictor is m(a) = 2 · 1 · a + 0 = 2a. Hence the
line L tangent to the graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope m(2) = 4. So an equation of L is y − f (2) = 4(x − 2);
that is, y = 4x − 4.
C02S01.004: Because f (x) = −2x2 +0 · x +1, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2 · (−2)a +0 = −4a. Thus
the line L tangent to the graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope m(2) = −8 and equation y − f (2) = −8(x − 2);
that is, y = −8x + 9.
C02S01.005: Because f (x) = 0 · x2 + 4x − 5, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2 · 0 · a + 4 = 4. So the line
tangent to the graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope 4 and therefore equation y − 3 = 4(x − 2); that is, y = 4x − 5.
C02S01.006: Because f (x) = 0 · x2 − 3x + 7, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2 · 0 · a − 3 = −3. So the
line tangent to the graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope −3 and therefore equation y − 1 = −3(x − 2); that is,
y = −3x + 7.
C02S01.007: Because f (x) = 2x2 − 3x + 4, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2 · 2 · a − 3 = 4a − 3. So
the line tangent to the graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope 5 and therefore equation y − 6 = 5(x − 2); that is,
y = 5x − 4.
C02S01.008: Because f (x) = (−1) · x2 − 3x +5, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2 · (−1) · a − 3 = −2a − 3.
So the line tangent to the graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope −7 and therefore equation y + 5 = −7(x − 2);
that is, y = −7x + 9.
C02S01.009: Because f (x) = 2x2 + 6x, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 4a + 6. So the line tangent
to the graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope m(2) = 14 and therefore equation y − 20 = 14(x − 2); that is,
y = 14x − 8.
C02S01.010: Because f (x) = −3x2 + 15x, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = −6a + 15. So the line
tangent to the graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope m(2) = 3 and therefore equation y − 18 = 3(x − 2); that is,
y = 3x + 12.
1
2
C02S01.011: Because f (x) = − 100 x2 + 2x, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = − 100 a + 2. So the line
1
tangent to the graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope m(2) = − 25 +2 = 49 and therefore equation y − 99 = 49 (x−2);
25
25
25
that is, 25y = 49x + 1. C02S01.012: Because f (x) = −9x2 − 12x, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = −18a − 12. So the line
tangent to the graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope m(2) = −48 and therefore equation y + 60 = −48(x − 2);
that is, y = −48x + 36.
C02S01.013: Because f (x) = 4x2 + 1, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 8a. So the line tangent to the
graph of f at (2, f (2)) has slope m(2) = 16 and therefore equation y − 17 = 16(x − 2); that is, y = 16x − 15.
C02S01.014: Because f (x) = 24x, the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 24. So the line tangent to the graph
of f at (2, f (2)) has slope m(2) = 24 and therefore equation y − 48 = 24(x − 2); that is, y = 24x.
1 C02S01.015: If f (x) = −x2 + 10, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = −2a. A line tangent to the
graph of f will be horizontal when m(a) = 0, thus when a = 0. So the tangent line is horizontal at the point
(0, 10) and at no other point of the graph of f .
C02S01.016: If f (x) = −x2 + 10x, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = −2a + 10. A line tangent to
the graph of f will be horizontal when m(a) = 0, thus when a = 5. So the tangent line is horizontal at the
point (5, 25) and at no other point of the graph of f .
C02S01.017: If f (x) = x2 − 2x + 1, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2a − 2. A line tangent to the
graph of f will be horizontal when m(a) = 0, thus when a = 1. So the tangent line is horizontal at the point
(1, 0) and at no other point of the graph of f .
C02S01.018: If f (x) = x2 + x − 2, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2a + 1. A line tangent to the
graph of f will be horizontal when m(a) = 0, thus when a = − 1 . So the tangent line is horizontal at the

point − 1 , − 9 and at no other point of the graph of f .

C02S01.019: If f (x) = − 100 x2 + x, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = − 50 a + 1. A line tangent to
the graph of f will be horizontal when m(a) = 0, thus when a = 50. So the tangent line is horizontal at the
point (50, 25) and at no other point of the graph of f . C02S01.020: If f (x) = −x2 + 100x, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = −2a + 100. A line tangent to
the graph of f will be horizontal when m(a) = 0, thus when a = 50. So the tangent line is horizontal at the
point (50, 2500) and at no other point of the graph of f .
C02S01.021: If f (x) = x2 − 2x − 15, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2a − 2. A line tangent to
the graph of f will be horizontal when m(a) = 0, thus when a = 1. So the tangent line is horizontal at the
point (1, −16) and at no other point of the graph of f .
C02S01.022: If f (x) = x2 − 10x + 25, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2a − 10. A line tangent to
the graph of f will be horizontal when m(a) = 0, thus when a = 5. So the tangent line is horizontal at the
point (5, 0) and at no other point of the graph of f .
C02S01.023: If f (x) = −x2 + 70x, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = −2a + 70. A line tangent to
the graph of f will be horizontal when m(a) = 0, thus when a = 35. So the tangent line is horizontal at the
point (35, 1225) and at no other point of the graph of f .
C02S01.024: If f (x) = x2 − 20x + 100, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2a − 20. A line tangent
to the graph of f will be horizontal when m(a) = 0, thus when a = 10. So the tangent line is horizontal at
the point (10, 0) and at no other point of the graph of f .
C02S01.025: If f (x) = x2 , then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2a. So the line tangent to the graph
of f at the point P (−2, 4) has slope m(−2) = −4 and the normal line at P has slope 1 . Hence an equation
4
for the line tangent to the graph of f at P is y − 4 = −4(x + 2); that is, y = −4x − 4. An equation for the
line normal to the graph of f at P is y − 4 = 1 (x + 2); that is, 4y = x + 18.
4
C02S01.026: If f (x) = −2x2 − x + 5, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = −4a − 1. So the line tangent
to the graph of f at the point P (−1, 4) has slope m(−1) = 3 and the normal line at P has slope − 1 . Hence
3
an equation for the line tangent to the graph of f at P is y − 4 = 3(x + 1); that is, y = 3x + 7. An equation
for the line normal to the graph of f at P is y − 4 = − 1 (x + 1); that is, x + 3y = 11.
3
C02S01.027: If f (x) = 2x2 + 3x − 5, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 4a + 3. So the line tangent
1
to the graph of f at the point P (2, 9) has slope m(2) = 11 and the normal line at P has slope − 11 . Hence
2 an equation for the line tangent to the graph of f at P is y − 9 = 11(x − 2); that is, y = 11x − 13. An
1
equation for the line normal to the graph of f at P is y − 9 = − 11 (x − 2); that is, x + 11y = 101.
C02S01.028: If f (x) = x2 , then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 2a. Hence the line L tangent
to the graph of f at the point (x0 , y0 ) has slope m(x0 ) = 2x0 . Because y0 = x2 , an equation of L is
0
y − x2 = 2x0 (x − x0 ). To ﬁnd where L meets the x-axis, we substitute y = 0 in the equation of L and solve
0
for x:
0 − x2 = 2x0 (x − x0 );
0
x − x0 = − 1 x0
2 (if x0 = 0); x = x0 − 1 x0 = 1 x0 .
2
2
Therefore if x0 = 0, L meets the x-axis at the point 1 x0 , 0 . If x0 = 0, then L is the x-axis and therefore
2
meets the x-axis at 1 x0 , 0 = (0, 0) as well as at every other point.

C02S01.029: If the ball has height y (t) = −16t2 + 96t (feet) at time t (s), then the slope-predictor for
y is m(a) = −32a + 96. Assuming that the maximum height of the ball occurs at the point on the graph
of y where the tangent line is horizontal, we ﬁnd that point by solving m(a) = 0 and ﬁnd that a = 3. So
the highest point on the graph of y is the point (3, y (3)) = (3, 144). Therefore the ball reaches a maximum
height of 144 (ft).
C02S01.030: The slope-predictor for A(x) = −x2 + 50x is m(a) = −2a + 50. The highest point on the
graph of A occurs where the tangent line is horizontal; that is, when 2a = 50, so that a = 25. (We know it’s
the high point rather than the low point because the graph of y = A(x) is a parabola that opens downward.)
So the highest point on the graph of A is the point (25, A(25)) = (25, 625). Because a = 25 is in the domain
[0, 50] of the function A, the maximum possible area of the rectangle is 625 (ft2 ).
C02S01.031: If the two positive numbers x and y have sum 50, then y = 50 − x, x > 0, and x < 50
(because y > 0). So the product of two such numbers is given by
p(x) = x(50 − x), 0 < x < 50. The graph of p(x) = −x2 + 50x has a highest point because the graph of y = p(x) is a parabola that opens
downward. The slope-predictor for the function p is m(a) = −2a + 50. The highest point on the graph of p
will occur when the tangent line is horizontal, so that m(a) = 0. This leads to a = 25, which does lie in the
domain of p. Therefore the highest point on the graph of p is (25, p(25)) = (25, 625). Hence the maximum
possible value of p(x) is 625. So the maximum possible product of two positive numbers with sum 50 is 625.

C02S01.032: If y = f (x) = − 625 x2 + x, then the slope predictor for f is m(a) = − 625 a + 1. (a) The
projectile hits the ground at that point x for which f (x) = 0; that is, x2 = 625x, so that x = 0 (which we
reject; this is where the projectile leaves the ground) or x = 625. Because the projectile travels from x = 0
to x = 625, the horizontal distance it travels is 625 (ft). (b) To ﬁnd the maximum height of the projectile,
we ﬁnd where the line tangent to the graph of f is horizontal. This occurs when m(a) = 0, so that a = 312.5.
So the maximum height of the projectile is f (312.5) = 156.25 (ft). (It’s a maximum rather than a minimum
because the graph of y = f (x) is a parabola that opens downwards and x = 312.5 does lie in the domain
[0, 625] of the function f .) C02S01.033: Suppose that the “other” line L is tangent to the parabola at the point (a, a2 ). The slopepredictor for y = f (x) = x2 is m(a) = 2a, so the line L has slope m(a) = 2a. (Note that a changes from
a variable to a constant in the last sentence. This is dangerous but the notation has forced this situation
3 upon us.) Using the two-point formula for slope, we can compute the slope of L in another way and equate
our two results:
a2 − 0
= 2a;
a−3
a2 = 2a(a − 3);
a = 2a − 6; (because a = 0); a = 6.
Therefore L has slope m(6) = 12. Because L passes through (3, 0), an equation of L is y − 0 = 12(x − 3);
that is, y = 12x − 36.
C02S01.034: If y = f (x) = −x2 + 4x, then the slope-predictor for f is m(a) = −2a + 4. Suppose that the
line L passes through the point P (2, 5) and is tangent to the graph of f . Let Q(c, f (c)) = (c, 4c − c2 ) be
the point of tangency. We can use the two points P and Q to compute the slope of L. We can also use the
slope-predictor. We do so and equate the results:
4c − c2 − 5
= −2c + 4;
c−2 4c − c2 − 5 = (c − 2)(−2c + 4) = −2c2 + 8c − 8;
c2 − 4c + 3 = 0; (c − 1)(c − 3) = 0. Therefore c = 1 or c = 3. We have discovered that there are two points at which L may be tangent to the
graph of f : (1, f (1)) = (1, 3) and (3, f (3)) = (3, 3). Thus one tangent line has slope 2 and the other has
slope −2; their equations may be written as
y − 5 = 2(x − 2) and y − 5 = −2(x − 2). C02S01.035: Suppose that (a, a2 ) is the point on the graph of y = x2 closest to (3, 0). Let L be the
line segment from (3, 0) to (a, a2 ). Under the plausible assumption that L is normal to the tangent line at
(a, a2 ), we infer that the slope m of L is − 1/(2a) because the slope of the tangent line is 2a. Because we
can also compute m by using the two points known to lie on it, we ﬁnd that
m=− 1
a2 − 0
=

2a
a−3 This leads to the equation 0 = 2a3 + a − 3 = (a − 1)(2a2 + 2a + 3), which has a = 1 as its only real solution
(note that the discriminant of 2a2 + 2a + 3 is negative). Intuitively, it’s clear that there is a point on the
graph nearest (3 , 0), so we have found it: That point is (1, 1).
Alternatively, if (x, x2 ) is an arbitrary point on the given parabola, then the distance from (x, x2 ) to
(3, 0) is the square root of f (x) = (x2 − 0)2 + (x − 3)2 = x4 + x2 − 6x + 9. A positive quantity is minimized
when its square is minimized, so we minimize the distance from (x, x2 ) to (3, 0) by minimizing f (x). The
slope-predictor for f is m(a) = 4a3 + 2a − 6 = 2(a − 1)(2a2 + 2x + 3), and (as before) the equation m(a) = 0
has only one real solution, a = 1. Again appealing to intuition for the existence of a point on the parabola
nearest to (3, 0), we see that it can only be the point (1, 1). In Chapter 3 we will see how the existence of
the closest point can be established without an appeal to the intuition.

x lim x = 3 − 0 = 3. x→0+ 3 /2 C02S03.030:
C02S03.031: lim x→0+ lim x→1− 4 + 3x3/2 = 4 + 3 ·
√ lim x
+ = 4 − 3 · 0 = 4. x→0 x − 1 does not exist because if x < 1, then x − 1 < 0. C02S03.032: Because x → 4− , x < 4, so that

and lim− 4 − x = 4 − 4 = 0. √ 4 − x is deﬁned for all such x. Therefore the limit exists x→4 C02S03.033: Because x → 2+ , x > 2, so that x2 > 4. Hence
√
lim+ x2 − 4 = 4 − 4 = 0. √ x2 − 4 is deﬁned for all such x and x→2 C02S03.034: Because x → 3+ , x > 3, so that 9 − x2 < 0 for all such x. Thus the given limit does not
exist.
4 C02S03.035: Because x → 5− , x < 5 and x > 0 for x suﬃciently close to 5. Therefore x(5 − x) > 0 for
such x, so that x(5 − x) exists for such x. Therefore
lim− x(5 − x) = x→5 lim− x x→5 5 − lim− x
x→5 = √ 5 · 0 = 0. C02S03.036: As x → 2− , x < 2, and x > −2 for x su√ ciently close to 2. For such x, 4 − x2 > 0, so that

√
4 − x2 exists. Therefore lim
4 − x2 = 4 − 22 = 0 = 0.
x→2− C02S03.037: As x → 4+ , x > 4, so that both 4x and x − 4 are positive. Hence the radicand is positive
and the square root exists. But the denominator in the radicand is approaching zero through positive values
while the numerator is approaching 16. So the fraction is approaching + ∞. Therefore
4x
= +∞.
x−4 lim x→4+ It is also correct to say that this limit does not exist.
C02S03.038: First, 6 − x − x2 = (3 + x)(2 − x), so that as x → −3+ , x > −3, and thus 3 + x > 3 − 3 = 0.
Also x < 2 if x is suﬃciently close to −3, so that 2 − x > 0. Therefore (3 + x)(2 − x) > 0, and so the square
root is deﬁned. Finally,
lim x→−3+ 6 − x − x2 = C02S03.039: If x < 5, then x − 5 < 0, so lim x→−3+ (3 + x)(2 − x) = √ 0·5= √ 0 = 0. x−5

C02S03.047: Recall ﬁrst that z 2 = | z | for every real number z . Because x → 5+ , x > 5, so 5 − x < 0.
Therefore (5 − x)2 = | 5 − x | = −(5 − x) = x − 5. Therefore

C02S03.048: Recall that z 2 = | z | for every real number z . Because x → −4− , we know that x < −4.
Hence 4 + x < 4 + (−4) = 0. Therefore

best described by observing that
lim x→1+ 1

x−1 and lim x→1− 1

3−x C02S03.051: The right-hand and left-hand limits both fail to exist at a = −1. The behavior of f near a
is best described by observing that
lim x→−1+ x−1

x+1 and lim x→−1− x−1

x+1 C02S03.052: The right-hand and left-hand limits both fail to exist at a = 5. The behavior of f near a is
best described by observing that
lim x→5+ 2x − 5
= −∞
5−x and lim x→5− 2x − 5
= + ∞.
5−x C02S03.053: The right-hand and left-hand limits both fail to exist at a = −2. If x is slightly greater than
−2, then 1 − x2 is close to 1 − 4 = −3, while x + 2 is a positive number close to zero. In this case f (x) is
a large negative number. Similarly, if x is slightly less than −2, then 1 − x2 is close to −3, while x + 2 is a
negative number close to zero. In this case f (x) is a large positive number. The behavior of f near −2 is
best described by observing that
lim x→−2+ 1 − x2
= −∞
x+2 and lim − x→−2 1 − x2
= + ∞.
x+2 C02S03.054: The right-hand and left-hand limits fail to exist at a = 5. If x is close to 5 but x = 5, then
x − 5 is close to zero, so that (x − 5)2 is a positive number still very close to zero. Its reciprocal is therefore
a very large positive number. That is,
lim x→5+ 1

x→5 (x − 5)2
6 (1) Unlike the previous problems of this sort, we may in this case also write
lim x→5 1

(x − 5)2 Nevertheless, Eq. (1) implies that neither the left-hand nor the right-hand limit of f (x) exists (is a real
number) at x = 5.
C02S03.055: The left-hand and right-hand limits both fail to exist at x = 1. To simplify f (x), observe
that

|1 − x| f (x) = Therefore we can describe the behavior of f (x) near a = 1 in this way:
lim f (x) = lim x→1 x→1 1
= + ∞.
|1 − x| C02S03.056: Because x2 + 6x + 9 = (x + 3)2 , the denominator in f (x) is zero when x = −3, and so the
left-hand and right-hand limits fail to exist at a = −3. When x is close to −3 but x = −3, (x + 3)2 is a
positive number very close to zero, while the numerator x + 1 is close to −2. Therefore f (x) is a very large
negative number. That is,
lim x→−3 x+1
= −∞.

an odd integer, for n x < n + 1. Therefore lim f (x) = 1 x→n− and x < n and f (x) = n, lim f (x) = −1. x→n+ Similarly, if n is an even integer, then lim f (x) = −1 x→n− and lim f (x) = 1. x→n+ Finally, lim f (x) exists if and only if a is not an integer. The graph of f is shown next.

x < 2n + 2. Thus

n 2 x < n + 1, and in this case f (x) = n. So if m = 2n is an even integer, then f (x) → m as x → m+ and
x → a for every real number a strictly between 2n and 2n + 2. But if 2n − 2 < x < 2n, then n − 1 < 1 x < n,
2
so that f (x) = n − 1; in this case f (x) → n − 1 as x → m− . Therefore:
If k is an odd integer, then lim f (x) = 1 (k − 1).

n such that n < x < n + 1. Then −(n + 1) < −x < −n, so f (x) = n − (n + 1) = −1. Therefore
lim f (x) = lim (−1) = −1 x→a x→a for every real number a. In particular, for every integer n,

-0.3 C02S03.070: Let f (x) = sgn(x) and g (x) = − sgn(x). Clearly neither f (x) nor g (x) has a limit as x → 0
(for example, f (x) → 1 as x → 1+ but f (x) → −1 as x → 1− ). But if x > 0, 1−1 f (x) + g (x) = −1 + 1
if x < 0, 0+0
if x = 0, so that f (x) + g (x) ≡ 0, and therefore f (x) + g (x) → 0 as x → 0. Also,
f (x) · g (x) = −1
0 if x = 0,
if x = 0. Therefore lim f (x) · g (x) = −1.
x→0 C02S03.071: Because −x2 f (x) x2 for all x and because −x2 → 0 and x2 → 0 as x → 0, it follows
from the squeeze law for limits that lim f (x) = 0 = f (0).

1 + 21/x Therefore lim f (x) does not exist. This function approaches its one-sided limits at x = 0 very rapidly. For
example, x→0 f (0.01) ≈ 7.888609052 × 10−31 and f (−0.01) ≈ 1 − 7.888601052 × 10−31 . The graph of f for x near zero is next.

that x > 0. Then 0 < x < δ = 2 . Hence x < , and therefore So, by deﬁnition, lim x→0+ √ √

suppose that 0 < | x − 2 | < δ . Then
| x − 2 | < 1;
− 1 < x − 2 < 1;
3 < x + 2 < 5;
| x + 2 | < 5.
Therefore

x→2 C02S03.080: Given > 0, choose δ to be the minimum of 1 and /10. Suppose that 0 < | x − 7 | < δ . Then
| x − 7 | < 1;
− 1 < x − 7 < 1;
8 < x + 2 < 10;
| x + 2 | < 10.
Therefore
| (x2 − 5x − 4) − 10 | = | x + 2 | · | x − 7 | < 10 · δ
15 10 · 10 =. Thus, by deﬁnition, lim (x2 − 5x − 4) = 10.

− 1 < x − 10 < 1;
− 2 < 2x − 20 < 2;
25 < 2x + 7 < 29;

| x2 + 2x + 4 | < 19.
Consequently,
| x3 − 8 | = | x2 + 2x + 4 | · | x − 2 | < 19 · δ 19 · 19 =. Therefore, by deﬁnition, lim x3 = 8.
x→2 C02S03.083: In Problem 78 we showed that if a = 0, then
lim x2 = lim x2 = 0 = 02 = a2 , x→a x→0 so the result we are to prove here holds when a = 0. Next case: Suppose that a > 0. Let > 0 be given.
Choose δ to be the minimum of the numbers 1 and /(2a +1). Note that δ > 0. Suppose that 0 < | x − a | < δ .
Then
| x − a | < 1;

| x + a | < 2a + 1.
Thus
| x2 − a2 | = | x + a | · | x − a | < (2a + 1) · =. 2a + 1 Therefore, by deﬁnition, lim x2 = a2 if a > 0.
x→a Final case: a < 0. Given > 0, let
δ = min 1, . | 2a − 1 | Note that δ > 0. Suppose that 0 < | x − a | < δ . Then
| x − a | < 1;
− 1 < x − a < 1;
2a − 1 < x + a < 2a + 1;
| x + a | < | 2a − 1 |

| x2 − a2 | = | x + a | · | x − a | < | 2a − 1 | · | 2a − 1 | =. Therefore, by deﬁnition, lim x2 = a2 if a < 0.

C02S04.001: Suppose that a is a real number. Then
lim f (x) = lim (2x5 − 7x2 + 13) = x→a x→a = lim 2 lim x x→a 5 x→a lim 2x5 − lim 7x2 + lim 13 x→a − lim 7 x→a lim x x→a 2 x→a x→a + 13 = 2a5 − 7a2 + 13 = f (a). Therefore f is continuous at x for every real number x.
C02S04.002: Suppose that a is a real number. Then
lim f (x) = x→a lim 7x3 − lim (2x + 1)5 = x→a lim 7 x→a = 7a3 − lim 2 x→a lim x + lim 1 x→a x→a lim x 5 x→a x→a 3 − lim (2x + 1) 5 x→a = 7a3 − (2a + 1)5 = f (a). Therefore f is continuous at x for every real number x.

C02S04.005: Suppose that a is a ﬁxed real number. Then a2 + 4a + 5 = (a + 2)2 + 1 > 0, so h(a) is deﬁned.
Moreover,
lim h(x) = lim x→a x→a = x2 + 4x + 5 = lim x x→a 2 lim (x2 + 4x + 5) 1 /2 x→a 1 /2 + lim 4
x→a lim x + lim 5 x→a x→a = a2 + 4a + 5 = h(a). Therefore, by deﬁnition, h is continuous at x = a. Because a is arbitrary, h is continuous at x for every real
number x.
1 C02S04.006: Suppose that a is a real number. Then h(a) exists because x1/3 is deﬁned for every real
number x. Moreover,
lim h(x) = lim (1 − 5x)1/3 = x→a x→a = x→a lim 1 − lim 5 x→a 1 /3 lim (1 − 5x) 1 /3 lim x x→a x→a = (1 − 5a)1/3 = h(a). Therefore h is continuous at x = a, and thus continuous at every real number x.
C02S04.007: Suppose that a is a real number. Then 1 + cos2 a = 0, so that f (a) is deﬁned. Note also that
lim sin x = sin a and x→a lim cos x = cos a x→a because the sine and cosine functions are continuous at every real number (Theorem 1). Moreover,
lim f (x) = lim x→a x→a lim (1 − sin x)

g (a) = (1 − sin a)
exists. Because the sine function is continuous on the set of all real numbers (Theorem
1), we know also that sin x → sin a as x → a. Therefore
lim g (x) = lim (1 − sin2 x)1/4 = x→a x→a = lim (1 − sin2 x) x→a lim 1 − lim sin x x→a 1 /4 2 1/4 x→a = 1 − sin2 a 1 /4 = g (a). Therefore g is continuous at a for every real number a.
C02S04.009: If a > −1, then f (a) exists because a = −1. Moreover,
lim f (x) = lim x→a x→a lim 1 1

x+1 x→a lim x + lim 1 x→a = 1

a+1 x→a Therefore f is continuous on the interval x > −1.
C02S04.010: If −2 < a < 2, then f (a) exists because a2 − 4 = 0. Moreover,
lim f (x) = lim x→a x→a x−1

x2 − 4 lim x − lim 1 x→a lim x x→a Therefore f is continuous at x if −2 < x < 2.

g (a) is deﬁned if − 1 π < a < 1 π . Moreover, for such values of a, we have

6 √
C02S04.015: The root law of Section 2.2 implies that g (x) = 3 x is continuous on the set R of all real
numbers. We know that the polynomial h(x) = 2x is continuous on R (Section 2.4, page 88). Hence the
sum f (x) = h(x) + g (x) is continuous on R.
C02S04.016: The polynomial f (x) = x2 is continuous on R (the set of all real numbers) and the quotient
h(x) = 1
x of continuous functions is continuous where its denominator is not zero. Hence the sum g (x) = f (x) + h(x)
is continuous on its domain, the set of all nonzero real numbers.
C02S04.017: Because f (x) is the quotient of continuous functions (the numerator and denominator are
polynomials, continuous everywhere), f is continuous wherever its denominator is nonzero. Therefore f is
continuous on its domain, the set of all real numbers other than −3.
3 C02S04.018: Because f (t) is the quotient of continuous functions (the numerator and denominator are
polynomials, continuous everywhere), f is continuous wherever its denominator is nonzero. Therefore f is
continuous on its domain, the set of all real numbers other than 5.
C02S04.019: Because f (x) is the quotient of continuous functions (the numerator and denominator are
polynomials, continuous everywhere), f is continuous wherever its denominator is nonzero. Therefore f is
continuous on its domain, the set of all real numbers.
C02S04.020: Because g (z ) is the quotient of continuous functions (the numerator and denominator are
polynomials, continuous everywhere), g is continuous wherever its denominator is nonzero. Therefore g is
continuous on its domain, the set of all real numbers other than ± 1.
C02S04.021: Note that f (x) is not deﬁned at x = 5, so it is not continuous there. Because f (x) = 1 for
x > 5 and f (x) = −1 for x < 5, f is a polynomial on the interval (5, + ∞) and a [another] polynomial on
the interval (−∞, 5). Therefore f is continuous on its domain, the set of all real numbers other than 5.
C02S04.022: Because h(x) is the quotient of continuous functions (the numerator and denominator are
polynomials, continuous everywhere), h is continuous wherever its denominator is nonzero. Therefore h is
continuous on its domain, the set of all real numbers.
C02S04.023: Because f (x) is the quotient of continuous functions (the numerator and denominator are
polynomials, continuous everywhere), f is continuous wherever its denominator is nonzero. Therefore f is
continuous on its domain, the set of all real numbers other than 2.
C02S04.024: Because g (t) = 4 + t4 is a polynomial, it is continuous everywhere (and never negative).
√
Because h(t) = 4 t is a root function, it is continuous wherever t
0. Therefore (by Theorem 2) the
composition f (t) = h(g (t)) is continuous everywhere.
C02S04.025: Let
h(x) = x+1
.
x−1 Because h(x) is the quotient of continuous functions (the numerator and denominator are polynomials,
continuous everywhere), h is continuous wherever its denominator is nonzero. Therefore h is continuous on
√
its domain, the set of all real numbers other than 1. Now let g (x) = 3 x. By the root rule of Section 2.2,
g is continuous everywhere. Therefore the composition f (x) = g (h(x)) is continuous on the set of all real
numbers other than 1.
√
C02S04.026: Here, F (u) = g (h(u)) where g (u) = 3 u and h(u) = 3 − u3 . Now g is continuous everywhere
by the root rule of Section 2.2; h is continuous everywhere because h(u) is a polynomial. Therefore the
composition F (u) = g (h(u)) of continuous functions is continuous where deﬁned; namely, on the set R of all
real numbers.
C02S04.027: Because f (x) is the quotient of continuous functions (the numerator and denominator are
polynomials, continuous everywhere), f is continuous wherever its denominator is nonzero. Therefore f is
continuous on its domain, the set of all real numbers other than 0 and 1.
C02S04.028: The domain of f is the interval −3 z 3, and on that domain f (z ) is the composition of
continuous functions, thus f is continuous there. Because f (z ) is not deﬁned if | z | > 3, it is not continuous
for z < −3 nor for z > 3. But it is still correct to say simply that “f is continuous” (see the deﬁnition of
continuous on page 88).
4 C02S04.029: Let h(x) = 4 − x2 . Then h is continuous everywhere because h(x) is a polynomial. The root
√
√
function g (x) = x is continuous for x
0 by the root rule of Section 2.2. Hence g (h(x)) = 4 − x2 is
continuous wherever x2 4; that is, on the interval [−2, 2]. The quotient
f (x) = √ x
x
=
2
g (h(x))
4−x is continuous wherever the numerator is continuous (that’s everywhere) and the denominator is both continuous and nonzero (that’s the open interval (−2, 2)). Therefore f is continuous on the open interval (−2, 2).
That is, f is continuous on its domain.
C02S04.030: Because f (x) is formed by the composition and quotient of continuous functions (polynomials
and root functions), it will be continuous wherever the denominator in the fraction is nonzero and the fraction
is nonnegative. So continuity of f will occur when both
4 − x2 = 0 and 1 − x2
4 − x2 0. The ﬁrst inequality is equivalent to x = ±2 and the second will hold when 1 − x2 and 4 − x2 have the same
sign (both positive or both negative) or the numerator is zero. If both are positive, then x2 < 1 and x2 < 4,
so that −1 < x < 1. If both are negative, then x2 > 1 and x2 > 4, so that x2 > 4; that is, x < −2 or x > 2.
Finally, 1 − x2 = 0 when x = ±1. Therefore f is continuous on its domain, (−∞, −2) ∪ [−1, 1] ∪ (2, + ∞).
C02S04.031: Because f (x) is the quotient of continuous functions, it is continuous where its denominator
is nonzero; that is, if x = 0. Thus f is continuous on its domain and not continuous at x = 0 (because it is
undeﬁned there).
C02S04.032: Given:
g (θ) = θ
.
cos θ Because g (θ) is the quotient of continuous functions, it is continuous wherever its denominator is nonzero;
that is, at every real number x not an odd integral multiple of π /2. That is, g is discontinuous (because it

sin 2x The numerator in f (x) is a polynomial, thus continuous everywhere. The denominator is the composition of
a function continuous on the set of all real numbers (the sine function) with another continuous function (a
polynomial), hence is also continuous everywhere. Thus because f (x) is the quotient of continuous functions,
it is continuous wherever its denominator is nonzero; that is, its only discontinuities occur when sin 2x = 0.
Thus f is continuous at every real number other than an integral multiple of π /2.
5 √
C02S04.034: Because f (x) = sin x is the composition of continuous functions, it is continuous wherever
it is deﬁned; that is, wherever sin x 0. Hence f is continuous on its domain, the set
· · · ∪ [−4π , −3π ] ∪ [−2π , −π ] ∪ [0, π ] ∪ [2π , 3π ] ∪ [4π , 5π ] ∪ · · · .
C02S04.035: Given: f (x) = sin | x |. The sine function is continuous on the set of all real numbers, as is
the absolute value function. Therefore their composition f is continuous on the set R of all real numbers.
C02S04.036: Given:
G(u) = √ 1
.
1 + cos u Because G(u) is the sum, composition, and quotient of continuous functions, it is continuous where it is
√
deﬁned. There is no obstruction to computing 1 + cos u because 1 + cos u 0 for every real number u.
Hence G will be undeﬁned, and thus not continuous, exactly when its denominator is zero, which is exactly
when 1 + cos u = 0. Therefore G is continuous except at the odd integral multiples of π . Put another way,
G is continuous on the union of open intervals of the form ([2n − 1]π , [2n + 1]π ) where n runs through all
integral values.
C02S04.037: The function
x
(x + 3)3 f (x) = is not continuous when x = −3. This discontinuity is not removable because f (x) → −∞ as x → −3+ , so
that the limit of f (x) at x = −3 does not exist.
C02S04.038: The function
f (t) = t2 t
−1 is not continuous when t = ± 1 because t2 − 1 = 0 then. These discontinuities are not removable because
f (t) → + ∞ as t → 1+ and as t → −1+ , so that f has no limit at either t = 1 or t = −1.
C02S04.039: First simplify f (x):
f (x) = x−2

x2 − 4
(x + 2)(x − 2)
x+2 if x = 2. Now f (x) is not deﬁned at x = ± 2 because x2 − 4 = 0 for such x. The discontinuity at −2 is not removable
because f (x) → + ∞ as x → −2+ . But f (x) → 1 as x → 2, so the discontinuity at x = 2 is removable; f
4
can be made continuous at x = 2 by deﬁning its value there to be its limit there, 1 .

C02S04.040: First try to simplify the formula of G:
G(u) = u+1
u+1
=
.
u2 − u − 6
(u − 3)(u + 2) This computation shows that G is not continuous at u = 3 and at u = −2. It also shows that these
discontinuities are not removable because G(u) → + ∞ as u → 3+ and as u → −2+ , so that G has no limit
at either of its discontinuities.
6 C02S04.041: Given:
f (x) = 1
.
1 − |x| The function f is not continuous at ± 1 because its denominator is zero if x = −1 and if x = 1. Because
f (x) → + ∞ as x → 1− and as x → −1+ (consider separately the cases x > 0 and x < 0), these discontinuities
are not removable; f (x) has no limit at −1 or at 1.
C02S04.042: If x > 1, then

(x − 1)

(x − 1)2 Therefore h is discontinuous at x = 1 and, because h(x) → + ∞ as x → 1+ , this discontinuity is not
removable.
C02S04.043: If x > 17, then x − 17 > 0, so that
f (x) = x − 17
x − 17

| x − 17 |
x − 17 But if x < 17, then x − 17 < 0, and thus
f (x) = x − 17
x − 17

| x − 17 |
−(x − 17) Therefore h(x) has no limit as x → 17 because its left-hand and right-hand limits there are unequal. Thus
the discontinuity at x = 17 is not removable.
C02S04.044: First simplify:
g (x) = x2 + 5x + 6
(x + 2)(x + 3)
=
=x+3
x+2
x+2 if x = −2. Therefore, although g is discontinuous at x = −2 (because it is not deﬁned there), this discontinuity is
removable; simply deﬁne g (−2) to be 1, the limit of g (x) as x → −2.
C02S04.045: Although f (x) is not continuous at x = 0 (because it is not deﬁned there), this discontinuity
is removable. For it is clear that f (x) → 0 as x → 0+ and as x → 0− , so deﬁning f (0) to be 0, the limit of
f (x) at x = 0, will make f continuous there.
C02S04.046: Although f (x) is not continuous at x = 1 (because it is not deﬁned there), this discontinuity
is removable. For it is clear that f (x) → 2 as x → 1+ and as x → 1− , so deﬁning f (1) to be 2, the limit of
f (x) at x = 1, will make f continuous there.
C02S04.047: Although f (x) is not continuous at x = 0 (because it is not deﬁned there), this discontinuity
is removable. For it is clear that f (x) → 1 as x → 0+ and as x → 0− , so deﬁning f (0) to be 1, the limit of
f (x) at x = 0, will make f continuous there.
C02S04.048: Although f (x) is not continuous at x = 0 (because it is not deﬁned there), this discontinuity
is removable. For

7 and it is clear that f (x) → 0 as x → 0+ . So deﬁning f (0) to be 0, the limit of f (x) at x = 0, will make f
continuous there.
C02S04.049: The given function is clearly continuous for all x except possibly for x = 0. For continuity
at x = 0, the left-hand and right-hand limits of f (x) must be the same there. But
lim f (x) = lim (x + c) = c x→0− x→0− and f (x) → 4 as x → 0+ . So continuity of f at x = 0 can occur only if c = 4. Moreover, if c = 4, then
(as we have seen) f (x) → 4 as x → 0 and f (0) = 4, so f will be continuous at x = 0 if and only if c = 4.
Answer: c = 4.
C02S04.050: Clearly f is continuous if x = 3, for if x < 3 or if x > 3, then f (x) is a polynomial, regardless
of the value of c. For continuity at x = 3, we require that the one-sided limits of f (x) at x = 3 be equal.
But f (x) → 6 + c as x → 3− and f (x) → 2c − 3 as x → 3+ . Equality of the one-sided limits is equivalent to
6 + c = 2c − 3; that is, c = 9. Finally, if c = 9, then the two-sided limit of f (x) at x = 3 is 15 and f (3) = 2 · 3 + 9 = 15, so f will be
continuous at x = 3 if c = 9. Answer: c = 9.
C02S04.051: Note that f is continuous at x if x = 0, because f (x) is a polynomial for x < 0 and for x > 0
regardless of the value of c. To be continuous at x = 0, it’s necessary that the left-hand and right-hand
limits exist and are equal there. Now
lim f (x) = lim (c2 − x2 ) = c2 x→0− x→0− and lim f (x) = lim 2(x − c)2 = 2c2 , x→0+ x→0+ and therefore continuity at x = 0 will hold if and only if c2 = 2c2 ; that is, if c = 0. And if so, then
f (0) = lim f (x) as well, so f will be continuous at x = 0. Answer: c = 0.
x→0 C02S04.052: Note that f is continuous if x < π because f (x) is a polynomial for such x; also, f is
continuous for x > π because (regardless of the value of c) f (x) is a constant multiple of a continuous
function. For continuity of f at x = π , the left-hand and right-hand limits must be equal there. But
lim f (x) = lim (c3 − x3 ) = c3 − π 3 x→π − x→π − and lim f (x) = lim c sin x = lim c sin π = 0. x→π + x→π + x→π + So continuity of f at x = π requires c3 −π 3 = 0; that is, c = π . And if so, then f (π ) = π 3 −π 3 = 0 = lim f (x),
x→π
so f will be continuous at x = π . Answer: c = π .
C02S04.053: Let f (x) = x2 − 5. Then f is continuous everywhere because f (x) is a polynomial. So f has
the intermediate value property on the interval [2, 3]. Also f (2) = −1 < 0 < 4 = f (3), so f (c) = 0 for some
number c in [2, 3]. That is, c2 − 5 = 0. Hence the equation x2 − 5 = 0 has a solution in [2, 3].
C02S04.054: Let f (x) = x3 + x + 1. Then f is continuous everywhere because f (x) is a polynomial. So f
has the intermediate value property on the interval [−1, 0]. Also f (−1) = −1 < 0 < 1 = f (0), so f (c) = 0
for some number c in [−1, 0]. That is, c3 + c + 1 = 0. Hence the equation x3 + x + 1 = 0 has a solution in
[−1, 0].
C02S04.055: Let f (x) = x3 − 3x2 + 1. Then f is continuous everywhere because f (x) is a polynomial. So
f has the intermediate value property on the interval [0, 1]. Also f (0) = 1 > 0 > −1 = f (1), so f (c) = 0 for
8 some number c in [0, 1]. That is, c3 − 3c2 + 1 = 0. Hence the equation x3 − 3x2 + 1 = 0 has a solution in
[0, 1].
C02S04.056: Let f (x) = x3 − 5. Then f is continuous everywhere because f (x) is a polynomial. So f has
the intermediate value property on the interval [1, 2]. Also f (1) = −4 < 0 < 3 = f (2), so f (c) = 0 for some
number c in [1, 2]. That is, c3 − 5 = 0. Hence the equation x3 = 5 has a solution in [1, 2].
C02S04.057: Let f (x) = x4 + 2x − 1. Then f is continuous everywhere because f (x) is a polynomial. So
f has the intermediate value property on the interval [0, 1]. Also f (0) = −1 < 0 < 2 = f (1), so f (c) = 0 for
some number c in [0, 1]. That is, c4 + 2c − 1 = 0. Hence the equation x4 + 2x − 1 = 0 has a solution in [0, 1].
C02S04.058: Let f (x) = x5 − 5x3 + 3. Then f is continuous everywhere because f (x) is a polynomial. So
f has the intermediate value property on the interval [−3, −2]. Also f (−3) = −105 < 0 < 11 = f (−2), so
f (c) = 0 for some number c in [−3, −2]. That is, c5 − 5c3 + 3 = 0. Hence the equation x5 − 5x3 + 3 = 0 has
a solution in [−3, −2].

16 So f (xi ) = 0 for x1 in (−3, −2), x2 in (0, 1), and x3 in (1, 2). Because these intervals do not overlap, the
equation f (x) = 0 has at least three real solutions. Because f (x) is a polynomial of degree 3, that equation
also has at most three real solutions. Therefore the equation x3 − 4x + 1 = 0 has exactly three real solutions.

equation f (x) = 0 has at least three real solutions. Because f (x) is a polynomial of degree 3, that equation
also has at most three real solutions. Therefore it has exactly three real solutions.
C02S04.061: At time t, [[t]] years have elapsed, and at that point your starting salary has been multiplied

4
of 1.5% than with yearly raises of 6%; the total salary received by the end of the ﬁrst ﬁve years with yearly
raises would be $140,930 but with quarterly raises it would be $144,520. The graphs of the function S (t) of
Problem 61 and P (t) are shown next. Although the graphs do not make it perfectly clear, it turns out that
P (t) > S (t) if t 1 , so that the quarterly raise is better for you ﬁnancially after the ﬁrst three months and

continues to outpace the yearly raise as long as you keep the job.

and q = 5. Because f and g are continuous on [a, b], so is h = f − g . Because p = q , h(a) = p − q and
h(b) = q − p have opposite signs, so that 0 is an intermediate value of the continuous function h. Therefore
h(c) = 0 for some number c in (a, b). That is, f (c) = g (c). This concludes the proof. To construct the
ﬁgure, we used (the given coeﬃcients are approximate)
f (x) = 1.53045 + (0.172739)ex and g (x) = 2.27857 + (2.05)x + (1.36429)x2 − (0.692857)x3 . 7

kilometers and t in hours, t = 0 corresponding to time 1 p.m. Let g (t) denote your distance from Estes Park
during your trip tomorrow, with g in kilometers, t in hours, and t = 0 corresponding to 1 p.m. tomorrow.
Assuming that both f and g are continuous, we use the facts that f (0) = 0, f (1) = M (where M is the
distance from Estes Park to Grand Lake), g (0) = M , and g (1) = 0 and apply the result of Problem 63 to
conclude that f (c) = g (c) for some number c in (0, 1). That is, at time t = c tomorrow you will be at exactly
the same spot (at distance g (c) from Estes Park) as you will be at the same time t = c today at distance
f (c) = g (c) from Estes Park.
10 The 1999 National Geographic Road Atlas indicates that M ≈ 101 (km). Making this trip in a single
hour is unforgivable given the magniﬁcent scenery (and probably impossible as well given the dozens of tight
turns on the highway).
C02S04.065: Given a > 0, let f (x) = x2 − a. Then f is continuous on [0, a + 1] because f (x) is a
polynomial. Also f (a + 1) > 0 because
f (a + 1) = (a + 1)2 − a = a2 + a + 1 > 1 > 0.
So f (0) = −a < 0 < f (a + 1). Therefore, because f has the intermediate value property on the interval
[0, a + 1], there exists a number r in (0, a + 1) such that f (r) = 0. That is, r2 − a = 0, so that r2 = a.
Therefore a has a square root.
Our proof shows that a has a positive square root. Can you modify it to show that a also has a negative
square root? Do you see why we used the interval [0, a + 1] rather than the simpler [0, a]?
C02S04.066: Clearly a = 0 has a cube root. Suppose ﬁrst that a > 0. Let f (x) = x3 − a. Then f has the
intermediate value property on [0, a + 1] because f (x) is a polynomial. Moreover,
f (a + 1) = (a + 1)3 − a = a3 + 3a2 + 2a + 1 > 1 > 0 > −a = f (0).
Therefore there exist a number c in [0, a + 1] such that f (c) = 0. That is, c3 − a = 0, so that c3 = a. Thus
the positive real number a has a cube root. Moreover, (−c)3 = −(c3 ) = −a, so that every negative real
number has a cube root as well.
C02S04.067: Given the real number a, we need to show that
lim cos x = cos a. x→a Let h = x − a, so that x = a + h. Then x → a is equivalent to h → 0; also, cos x = cos(a + h). Thus
lim cos x = lim cos(a + h) = lim (cos a cos h − sin a sin h) = (cos a) · 1 − (sin a) · 0 = cos a. x→a h→0 h→0 Therefore the cosine function is continuous at x = a for every real number a.
C02S04.068: If x is not an integer, choose that [unique] integer n = [[x]] such that n < x < n + 1. Then
f (x) = x + n on the interval (n, n + 1), thus f (x) is eﬀectively a polynomial on that interval. So f is
continuous at x. But if m is an integer, then
lim f (x) = lim (x + [[x]]) = lim (x + m − 1) = m + m − 1 = 2m − 1,
−
− x→m− x→m x→m whereas
lim f (x) = lim (x + [[x]]) = lim (x + m) = m + m = 2m.
+
+ x→m+ x→m x→m Because the left-hand and right-hand limits of f (x) diﬀer at m, f is not continuous there. Thus f is
discontinuous at each integer and continuous at every other real number.
C02S04.069: Suppose that a is a real number. We appeal to the formal deﬁnition of the limit in Section
2.2 (page 74) to show that f (x) has no limit as x → a. Suppose by way of contradiction that f (x) → L as
x → a. Then, for every > 0, there exists a number δ > 0 such that | f (x) − L | < for every number x such
that 0 < | x − a | < δ . So this statement must hold if = 1 .
4
11 Case 1: L = 0. Then there must exist a number δ > 0 such that
| f (x) − 0 | < 1
4 if 0 < | x − a | < δ . But, regardless of the value of δ , there exist irrational values of x satisfying this last
inequality. (We’ll explain why in a moment.) Choose such a number x. Then
| f (x) − 0 | = | 1 − 0 | = 1 < 1 .
4
This is impossible. So L = 0.
Case 2: L = 1. Proceed exactly as in Case 1, except choose a rational value of x such that 0 < | x − a | < δ .
Then
| f (x) − 1 | = | 0 − 1 | = 1 < 1 .
4
This, too, is impossible. So L = 1.
Case 3: L is neither 0 nor 1. Let
that,
if = 1 | L |. Note that
3 0 < | x − a | < δ, then > 0. Then suppose that there exists δ > 0 such | f (x) − L | < . (1) Choose a rational number x satisfying the left-hand inequality. Then
| f (x) − L | = | 0 − L | = | L | = 3 .
It follows from (1) that 3 < , which is impossible because > 0. In summary, L cannot be 0, nor can it be 1, nor can it be any other real number. Therefore f (x) has
no limit as x → a. Consequently f is not continuous at x = a. In this proof we relied heavily on the fact that if a is any real number, then we can ﬁnd both rational
and irrational numbers arbitrarily close to a. Rather than providing a formal proof, we illustrate how to do
this in the case that
a = 1.23456789101112131415 · · · .
(It doesn’t matter whether a is rational or irrational.) To produce rational numbers arbitrarily close to a,
use
1.2, 1.23, 1.234, 1.2345, 1.23456, 1.234567, . . . . (2) The numbers in (2) are all rational because they all have terminating decimal expansions, and the n th
number in (2) diﬀers from a by less than 10−n , so there are rational numbers arbitrarily close to a. To get
irrational numbers with the same properties, use
1.20100100010000100000100 · · · , 1.230100100010000100000100 · · · , 1.2340100100010000100000100 · · · , 1.23450100100010000100000100 · · · , . . . .
These numbers are irrational because every one of them has a nonrepeating decimal expansion.
C02S04.070: You can modify the argument in the solution of Problem 69 to show that f (x) has no limit
at x = a if a = 0. Simply use a2 in place of 1 in that argument. Because 0
f (x)
x2 for all x, and
2
because 0 → 0 and x → 0 as x → 0, it follows from the squeeze theorem that
12 lim f (x) = 0 = f (0). x→0 Therefore f is continuous at x = 0.
C02S04.071: Let g (x) = x − cos x. Then g (x) is the sum of continuous functions, thus continuous
everywhere, and in particular on the interval 0, 1 π . So g has the intermediate value property there. Also
2
g (0) = −1 < 0 and g (1) = 1 > 0. Therefore there exists a number c in 0, 1 π such that g (c) = 0. Thus
2
c − cos x = 0, so that c = cos c. Thus the equation x = cos x has a solution in 0, 1 π . (This solution is
2
approximately 0.7390851.)
C02S04.072: Let h(x) = x + 5 cos x. Then h(x) is the sum and product of continuous functions, thus is
continuous everywhere, including the intervals [−π , 0], [0, π ], and [π , 2π ]. Moreover,
h(−π ) = −π − 5 < 0 < 5 = h(0),
and h(0) = 5 > 0 > π − 5 = h(π ), h(π ) = π − 5 < 0 < 2π + 5 = h(2π ). By the intermediate value property of continuous functions, h(a) = 0 for some number a in I = (−π , 0),
h(b) = 0 for some number b in J = (0, π ), and h(c) = 0 for some number c in K = (π , 2π ). Because no two
of I , J , and K have any points in common, the numbers a, b, and c are distinct. Therefore the equation
h(x) = 0 three distinct solutions; in other words, the equation x = −5 cos x has three distinct solutions. (We
have not shown that there are no additional solutions, but this was not required.) Finally, a ≈ −1.30644,
b ≈ 1.97738, and c ≈ 3.83747.
C02S04.073: Because

2z f is left continuous at x = 0.
C02S04.074: Because
2 lim 2−1/x = 0 = f (0), x→0 the function f is both left and right continuous—thus continuous—at x = 0.
C02S04.075: Because

its discontinuities (the odd integral multiples of a). Because

C02S04.078: We consider only the discontinuities at x = 0 and x = π , because the behavior of f at
every even integral multiple of π is the same as its behavior at x = 0, and its behavior at every odd integral
multiple of π is the same as its behavior at x = π . We ﬁrst note that
lim x→0+ 1

1 + 21/ sin x so that f is right continuous at x = 0. But
lim x→0− 1
1+ 21/ sin x = 1 = f (0), and thus f is not left continuous at x = 0. The situation is reversed at π , as one might gather from examining
the graph of the sine function:
lim x→π − 1
= 0 = f (π ),
1 + 21/ sin x so that f is left continuous at x = π , but
lim x→π + 1
= 1 = f (π ).
1 + 21/ sin x Therefore f is not right continuous at x = π . 14 Chapter 2 Miscellaneous Problems

f (x) = 3x − x2 + (2x + 3) = −x2 + 5x + 3 if x > − 3.

2
2
f (x) = 3x − x2 − (2x + 3) = −x2 + x − 3 if x < − 3.
2 By the theorem just cited, the slope-predicting function for f will be m2 (x) = −2x + 1 if x < − 3 . Therefore

the general slope-predicting function for f will be
m(x) = −2x + 5

(because the slope-predicting function for f (x) = x2 is m(x) = 2x). But using the two-point formula for
slope, this line also has slope
a2 − 4
= 2a,
a−3 √
so that a2 − 4 = 2a2 − 6a; that is, a2 − 6a + 4 = 0. The quadratic formula yields the two √
solutions a = 3 ± 5,
√
so one of the two lines in question has slope 2 3 + 5 and the other has slope 2 3 − 5 . Both lines pass
through (3, 4), so their equations are
y−4=2 3+ √ 5 (x − 3) and y−4=2 3− √ 5 (x − 3). C02S0M.056: The given line has equation y = −x − 3, so its slope is −1. The radius of the circle from
its center (2, 3) to the point (a, b) of tangency is perpendicular to that line, so has slope 1. So the radius
lies on the line y − 3 = x − 2; that is, y = x + 1. We solve y = x + 1 and y = −x − 3 simultaneously to ﬁnd
√
the point of tangency (a, b) to be (−2, −1). The distance from the center of the circle to this point is 4 2.
Therefore an equation of the circle is (x − 2)2 + (y − 3)2 = 32.

(1 + x)(1 − x)
1+x (1) if x = 1. Every rational function is continuous wherever it is deﬁned, so f is continuous except at ± 1. The
computations in (1) show that f (x) has no limit as x → −1, so f cannot be made continuous at x = −1.
But the discontinuity at x = 1 is removable; if we redeﬁne f at x = 1 to be its limit 1 there, then f will be
2
continuous there as well.
C02S0M.058: Every rational function is continuous where it is deﬁned; that is, where its denominator is
nonzero. So
f (x) = 1−x
(2 − x)2 is continuous except at x = 2. This discontinuity is not removable because f (x) has no limit at x = 2.

number other than 1 and −3. The computations in (1) show that f (x) has no limit at x = −3, so it cannot
be redeﬁned in such a way to be continuous there. But the discontinuity at x = 1 is removable; if we redeﬁne
f at x = 1 to be its limit 3 there, then f will be continuous everywhere except at x = −3.
4
C02S0M.060: Note that f (x) = 1 if x2 > 1; that is, if x > 1 or x < −1. But if x2 < 1, so that −1 < x < 1,
then f (x) = −1. Hence f is continuous on (−∞, −1) ∪ (−1, 1) ∪ (1, + ∞). But f cannot be made continuous
at either x = 1 or x = −1, because its left-hand and right-hand limits are unequal at each of these points.
In any case, f is continuous wherever it is deﬁned.
9 C02S0M.061: Let f (x) = x5 + x − 1. Then f (0) = −1 < 0 < 1 = f (1). Because f (x) is a polynomial, it is
continuous on [0, 1], so f has the intermediate value property there. Hence there exists a number c in (0, 1)
such that f (c) = 0. Thus c5 + c − 1 = 0, and so the equation x5 + x − 1 = 0 has a solution. (The value of c
is approximately 0.754877666.)
C02S0M.062: Let f (x) = x5 − 4x2 + 1. Here are some values of f (x):
x
f (x) −1
−4 0
1 1
−2 2
17 Because f (x) is a polynomial, it is continuous everywhere. Therefore f (x1 ) = 0 for some number x1 in
(−1, 0), f (x2 ) = 0 for some number x2 in (0, 1), and f (x3 ) = 0 for some number x3 in (1, 2). The
numbers x1 , x2 , and x3 are distinct because they lie in nonoverlapping intervals. Therefore the equation
x5 − 4x2 + 1 = 0 has at least three real solutions. (The actual values are x1 ≈ 0.50842209, x2 ≈ 1.52864292,
and x3 ≈ −0.49268877.)
C02S0M.063: Let g (x) = x − cos x. Then g (0) = −1 < 0 < π /2 = g (π /2). Because g is continuous,
g (c) = 0 for some number c in (0, π /2). That is, c − cos c = 0, so that c = cos c.
C02S0M.064: Let h(x) = x + tan x. Then h(π ) = π > 0 and h(x) → −∞ as x approaches π /2 from
above (from the right). This implies that h(r) < 0 for some number r slightly larger than π /2. Because h is
continuous on the interval [r, π ], h has the intermediate value property there, so h(c) = 0 for some number
c between r and π , and thus between π /2 and π . That is, c + tan c = 0, so that tan c = −c, and c does lie
in the required interval 1 π , π .
2
C02S0M.065: Suppose that L is a straight line through 12, 15 that is normal to the graph of y = x2 at
2
the point (a, a2 ). The line tangent to the graph of y = x2 at that point has slope 2a, and the slope of L is
then −1/(2a). We can equate this to the slope of L found by using the two-point formula:
a2 − 15
1
2
=− ;
a − 12
2a
2a a2 − 15
2 = −(a − 12); 2a3 − 15a = −a + 12;
2a3 − 14a − 12 = 0;
a3 − 7a − 6 = 0.
By inspection, one solution of the last equation is a = −1. By the factor theorem of algebra, we know that
a − (−1) = a + 1 is a factor of the polynomial a3 − 7a − 6, and division of the former into the latter yields
a3 − 7a − 6 = (a + 1)(a2 − a − 6) = (a + 1)(a − 3)(a + 2).
So the equation a3 − 7a − 6 = 0 has the three solutions a = −1, a = 3, and a = −2. Therefore there are
three lines through 12, 15 that are normal to the graph of y = x2 , and their slopes are 1 , 1 , and − 1 .

C02S0M.066: Let (0, c) be the center of a too-big circle, r its radius, and (a, a2 ) the point in the ﬁrst
quadrant where the too-big circle and the parabola are tangent. The idea is to solve for a in terms of c and
(possibly) r, then to impose the condition that there is exactly one solution for a! This means that the circle
just reaches to the bottom of the parabola and not beyond.
10 Consider the radius of the circle connecting (0, c) with (a, a2 ). The circle and the parabola are mutually
tangent at (a, a2 ), so this radius must be normal not only to the circle, but also to the parabola at the point
(a, a2 ). We compute the slope of this radius in two ways to ﬁnd that
a2 − c
1
=− ;
a−0
2a
1
a2 − c = − ;
2
1
a2 = c − .
2
Now we impose the condition that there is only one point at which the circle and the parabola meet. The
last equation will have exactly one solution when c = 1 , and in this case the radius of the circle—because it
2
touches the parabola only at (0, 0)—will also be r = 1 . Answer: 1 .

decreasing. Hence its derivative must be ﬁrst positive, then zero when x = 0, then negative. This matches
Fig. 3.1.28(c).
C03S01.031: Figure 3.1.23 shows a graph ﬁrst decreasing, then with a horizontal tangent where x = 1,
then increasing thereafter. So its derivative must be negative for x < 1, zero when x = 1, and positive for
x > 1. This matches Fig. 3.1.28(e).
C03S01.032: Figure 3.1.24 shows a graph increasing for x < −1.5, decreasing for −1.5 < x < 1.5, and
increasing for 1.5 < x. So its derivative must be positive for x < −1.5, negative for −1.5 < x < 1.5, and
positive for 1.5 < x. This matches Fig. 3.1.28(b).
C03S01.033: Figure 3.1.25 shows a graph decreasing for x < −1.5, increasing for −1.5 < x < 0, decreasing
for 0 < 1 < 1.5, and increasing for 1.5 < x. Hence its derivative is negative for x < −1.5, positive for
3 −1.5 < x < 0, negative for 0 < x < 1.5, and positive for 1.5 < x. Only the graph in Fig. 3.1.28(f) shows
these characteristics.
C03S01.034: Figure 3.1.26 shows a graph with horizontal tangents near where x = −3, x = 0, and
x = 3. So the graph of the derivative must be zero near these three points, and this behavior is matched by
Fig. 3.1.28(a).
C03S01.035: Figure 3.1.27 shows a graph that increases, ﬁrst slowly, then rapidly. So its derivative must
exhibit the same behavior, and thus its graph is the one shown in Fig. 3.1.28(d).

the area within the ripple at time t is A = π r2 = 25π t2 . The rate at which this area is increasing at time t
is A (t) = 50π t, so at time t = 10 the area is increasing at the rate of A (10) = 50π · 10 = 500π (ft2 /s).
C03S01.039: The velocity of the car (in feet per second) at time t (seconds) is v (t) = x (t) = 100 − 10t.
The car comes to a stop when v (t) = 0; that is, when t = 10. At that time the car has traveled a distance
x(10) = 500 (ft). So the car skids for 10 seconds and skids a distance of 500 ft.

The instantaneous rate of change of V will have this value when V (t) = − 10 , which we easily solve for
t = 50. C03S01.041: First, P (t) = 100 + 30t + 4t2 . The initial population is 100, so doubling occurs when
P (t) = 200; that is, when 4t2 +30t−100 = 0. The quadratic formula yields t = 2.5 as the only positive solution
4 of this equation, so the population will take two and one-half months to double. Because P (t) = 30 + 8t,
the rate of growth of the population when P = 200 will be P (2.5) = 50 (chipmunks per month).
C03S01.042: In our construction, the tangent line at 1989 passes through the points (1984, 259) and
(1994, 423), and so has slope 16.4; this yields a rate of growth of approximately 16.4 thousand per year in
1989. Alternatively, using the Mathematica function Fit to ﬁt the given data to a sixth-degree polynomial,
we ﬁnd that P (in thousands) is given in terms of t (as a four-digit year) by
P (t) ≈(1.0453588 × 10−14 )x6 − (4.057899 × 10−11 )x5 + (3.9377735 × 10−8 )x4 + (5.93932556 × 10−11 )x3 + (5.972176 × 10−14 )x2 + (5.939427 × 10−17 )x + (3.734218 × 10−12 ), and that P (1989) ≈ 16.4214. Of course neither method is exact.
C03S01.043: On our graph, the tangent line at the point (20, 810) has slope m1 ≈ 0.6 and the tangent
line at (40, 2686) has slope m2 ≈ 0.9. A line of slope 1 on our graph corresponds to a velocity of 125 ft/s
(because the line through (0, 0) and (10, 1250) has slope 1), and thus we estimate the velocity of the car at
time t = 20 to be about (0.6)(125) = 75 ft/s, and at time t = 40 it is traveling at about (0.9)(125) = 112.5
ft/s. The method is crude; the answer in the back of the textbook is quite diﬀerent simply because it was
obtained by someone else. When we used the Mathematica function Fit to ﬁt the data to a sixth-degree
polynomial, we obtained
x(t) ≈ 0.0000175721 + (6.500002)x + (1.112083)x2 + (0.074188)x3 − (0.00309375)x4 + (0.0000481250)x5 − (0.000000270834)x6 , which yields x (20) ≈ 74.3083 and x (40) ≈ 109.167. Of course neither method is exact.
C03S01.044: With volume V and edge x, the volume of the cube is given by V (x) = x3 . Now
which is indeed half the total surface area 6x2 of the cube. dV

C03S01.045: With volume V and radius r, the volume of the sphere is V (r) = 4 π r3 . Then

and this is indeed the surface area of the sphere.
C03S01.046: A right circular cylinder of radius r and height h has volume V = π r2 h and total surface
area S obtained by adding the areas of its top, bottom, and curved side: S = 2π r2 + 2π rh. We are given
h = 2r, so V (r) = 2π r3 and S (r) = 6π r2 . Also dV /dr = 6π r2 = S (r), so the rate of change of volume with
respect to radius is indeed equal to total surface area.
C03S01.047: We must compute dV /dt when t = 30; V (r) = 4 π r3 is the volume of the balloon when its
3
60 − t
radius is r. We are given r =

we derive V (p) = − 2 . The rate of change of V with respect to p

when p = 2 (atm) is then V (2) = −0.42 (liters/atm). C03S01.048: From V (p) = C03S01.049: Let V (t) denote the volume (in cm3 ) of the snowball at time t (in hours) and let r(t) denote
its radius then. From the data given in the problem, r = 12 − t. The volume of the snowball is
V= 43

π r = π (12 − t)3 = π 1728 − 432t + 36t2 − t3 ,
3
3
3 so its instantaneous rate of change is
V (t) = 4
π −432 + 72t − 3t2 .
3 Hence its rate of change of volume when t = 6 is V (6) = −144π cm3 /h. Its average rate of change of volume
from t = 3 to t = 9 in cm3 /h is
V (9) − V (3)
36π − 972π

dy
= −32t+96, which is zero when t = 3. So the maximum

height of the ball is y (3) = 256 (ft). It hits the ground when y (t) = 0; that is, when −16t2 + 96t + 112 = 0.
The only positive solution of this equation is t = 7, so the impact speed of the ball is | y (7) | = 128 (ft/s).
C03S01.050: The velocity of the ball at time t is C03S01.051: The spaceship hits the ground when 25t2 − 100t + 100 = 0, which has solution t = 2. The
velocity of the spaceship at time t is y (t) = 50t − 100, so the speed of the spaceship at impact is (fortunately)
zero.

C03S01.052: Because P (t) = 100 + 4t + 10 t2 , we have P (t) = 4 + 3 t. The year 1986 corresponds to t = 6,
5
so the rate of change of P then was P (6) = 7.6 (thousands per year). The average rate of change of P from
1983 (t = 3) to 1988 (t = 8) was P (8) − P (3)
151.2 − 114.7
=
= 7.3 (thousands per year).

Using the quadratic formula to solve the equation P (t) = 0.6, we ﬁnd two solutions:

C03S02.001: Given: f (x) = 3x2 − x + 5. We apply the rule for diﬀerentiating a linear combination and
the power rule to obtain
f (x) = 3 Dx (x2 ) − Dx (x) + Dx (5) = 3 · 2x − 1 + 0 = 6x − 1.
C03S02.002: Given: g (t) = 1 − 3t2 − 2t4 . We apply the rule for diﬀerentiating a linear combination and
the power rule to obtain
g (t) = Dt (1) − 3 Dt (t2 ) − 2 Dt (t4 ) = 0 − 3 · 2t − 2 · 4t3 = −6t − 8t3 .
C03S02.003: Given: f (x) = (2x + 3)(3x − 2). We apply the product rule to obtain
f (x) = (2x + 3) Dx (3x − 2) + (3x − 2) Dx (2x + 3) = (2x + 3) · 3 + (3x − 2) · 2 = 12x + 5.
C03S02.004: Given: g (x) = (2x2 − 1)(x3 + 2). We apply the product rule, the rule for diﬀerentiating a
linear combination, and the power rule to obtain
g (x) = (2x2 − 1) Dx (x3 + 2) + (x3 + 2) Dx (2x2 − 1) = (2x2 − 1)(3x2 ) + (x3 + 2)(4x) = 10x4 − 3x2 + 8x.
C03S02.005: Given: h(x) = (x + 1)3 . We rewrite h(x) in the form
h(x) = (x + 1)(x + 1)(x + 1)
and then apply the extended product rule in Eq. (16) to obtain
h (x) = (x + 1)(x + 1) Dx (x + 1) + (x + 1)(x + 1) Dx (x + 1) + (x + 1)(x + 1) Dx (x + 1)
= (x + 1)(x + 1)(1) + (x + 1)(x + 1)(1) + (x + 1)(x + 1)(1) = 3(x + 1)2 .
Alternatively, we could rewrite h(x) in the form
h(x) = x3 + 3x2 + 3x + 1
and then apply the power rule and the rule for diﬀerentiating a linear combination to obtain
h (x) = Dx (x3 ) + 3 Dx (x2 ) + 3 Dx (x) + Dx (1) = 3x2 + 6x + 3.
The ﬁrst method gives the answer in a more useful form because it is easier to determine where h (x) is
positive, where negative, and where zero. Zeugma!
C03S02.006: Given: g (t) = (4t − 7)2 = (4t − 7) · (4t − 7). We apply the product rule and the rule for
diﬀerentiating a linear combination to obtain
g (t) = (4t − 7) Dt (4t − 7) + (4t − 7) Dt (4t − 7) = 4 · (4t − 7) + 4 · (4t − 7) = 8 · (4t − 7) = 32t − 56.
C03S02.007: Given: f (y ) = y (2y − 1)(2y + 1). We apply the extended product rule in Eq. (16) to obtain
1 f (y ) = (2y − 1)(2y + 1) Dy (y ) + y (2y + 1) Dy (2y − 1) + y (2y − 1) Dy (2y + 1) = (2y − 1)(2y + 1) · 1 + y (2y + 1) · 2 + y (2y − 1) · 2 = 4y 2 − 1 + 4y 2 + 2y + 4y 2 − 2y = 12y 2 − 1. Alternatively, we could ﬁrst expand: f (y ) = 4y 3 − y . Then we could apply the rule for diﬀerentiating a
linear combination and the power rule to obtain f (y ) = 4 Dy (y 3 ) − Dy (y ) = 12y 2 − 1.
C03S02.008: Given: f (x) = 4x4 − 1

x Alternatively, we could rewrite: f (x) = 4x4 − x−2 . Then we could apply the rule for diﬀerentiating a linear

g (t) = (t2 + 1) Dt (t3 + t2 + 1) + (t3 + t2 + 1) Dt (t2 + 1) = (t2 + 1)(3t2 + 2t + 0) + (t3 + t2 + 1)(2t + 0)

combination and the power rule.

3 But if the objective is to obtain the correct answer as quickly as possible, regardless of its appearance,
you could proceed as follows (using the linear combination rule and the power rule for negative integral
exponents):
f (x) = 2x − 3 + 4x−1 − 5x−2 , so f (x) = 2 − 4x−2 + 10x−3 . C03S02.017: Apply the extended product rule in Eq. (16) to obtain
g (y ) = (3y 2 − 1)(y 2 + 2y + 3) Dy (2y ) + (2y )(y 2 + 2y + 3) Dy (3y 2 − 1) + (2y )(3y 2 − 1) Dy (y 2 + 2y + 3)
= (3y 2 − 1)(y 2 + 2y + 3)(2) + (2y )(y 2 + 2y + 3)(6y ) + (2y )(3y 2 − 1)(2y + 2)

(circular) water surface when the height of water in the tank is h. Draw a typical radius, label it r, and label
the height h. From similar triangles in your ﬁgure, deduce that h/r = 800/160 = 5, so r = h/5. The volume
1
of water in a cone of height h and radius r is V = 1 π r2 h, so in this case we have V = V (h) = 75 π h3 . The rate
3
1
of change of V with respect to h is dV /dh = 25 π h2 , and therefore when h = 600, we have V (600) = 14400π ;
that is, approximately 45239 cm3 per cm.
9 C03S02.054: Because y (x) = 3x2 +2x +1, the slope of the tangent line at (1, 3) is y (1) = 6. The equation
of the tangent line at (1, 3) is y − 3 = 6(x − 1); that is, y = 6x − 3. The intercepts of the tangent line are
(0, −3) and 1 , 0 .
2
C03S02.055: The slope of the tangent line can be computed using dy/dx at x = a and also by using the
two points known to lie on the line. We thereby ﬁnd that
3a2 = a3 − 5
.
a−1 This leads to the equation (a + 1)(2a2 − 5a + 5) = 0. The quadratic factor has negative discriminant, so the
only real solution of the cubic equation is a = −1. The point of tangency is (−1, −1), the slope there is 3,
and the equation of the line in question is y = 3x + 2.
C03S02.056: Let (a, a3 ) be a point of tangency. The tangent line therefore has slope 3a2 and, because it
passes through (2, 8), we have
3a2 = a3 − 8
;
a−2 that is, 3a2 (a − 2) = a3 − 8. This leads to the equation 2a2 − 2a − 4 = 0, so that a = −1 or a = 2. The solution a = 2 yields the line
tangent at (2, 8) with slope 12. The solution a = −1 gives the line tangent at (−1, −1) with slope 3. The
two lines have equations y − 8 = 12(x − 2) and y + 1 = 3(x + 1); that is, y = 12x − 16 and y = 3x + 2.
C03S02.057: Suppose that some straight line L is tangent to the graph of f (x) = x2 at the points (a, a2 )
and (b, b2 ). Our plan is to show that a = b, and we may conclude that L cannot be tangent to the graph of
f at two diﬀerent points. Because f (x) = 2x and because (a, a2 ) and (b, b2 ) both lie on L, the slope of L is
equal to both f (a) and f (b); that is, 2a = 2b. Hence a = b, so that (a, a2 ) and (b, b2 ) are the same point.
Conclusion: No straight line can be tangent to the graph of y = x2 at two diﬀerent points.
C03S02.058: Let (a, 1/a) be a point of tangency. The slope of the tangent there is −1/a2 , so −1/a2 = −2.
√

Thus there are two possible values for a: ± 1 2. These lead to the equations of the two lines: y = −2x +2 2

and y = −2x − 2 2.
C03S02.059: Given f (x) = xn , we have f (x) = nxn−1 . The line tangent to the graph of f at the point
P (x0 , y0 ) has slope that we compute in two ways and then equate:
y − (x0 )n
= n(x0 )n−1 .
x − x0
To ﬁnd the x-intercept of this line, substitute y = 0 into this equation and solve for x. It follows that the
n−1
x-intercept is x =
x0 .
n
C03S02.060: Because dy/dx = 5x4 + 2 2 > 0 for all x, the curve has no horizontal tangent line. The
minimal slope occurs when dy/dx is minimal, and this occurs when x = 0. So the smallest slope that a line
tangent to this graph can have is 2.
C03S02.061: Dx [f (x)]3 = f (x)f (x)f (x) + f (x)f (x)f (x) + f (x)f (x)f (x) = 3[f (x)]2 f (x).
C03S02.062: Suppose that u1 , u2 , u3 , u4 , and u5 are diﬀerentiable functions of x. Let primes denote
derivatives with respect to x. Then
10 Dx [u1 u2 u3 u4 ] = Dx [(u1 u2 u3 )u4 ] = (u1 u2 u3 ) u4 + (u1 u2 u3 )u4
= (u1 u2 u3 + u1 u2 u3 + u1 u2 u3 )u4 + (u1 u2 u3 )u4
= u1 u2 u3 u4 + u1 u2 u3 u4 + u1 u2 u3 u4 + u1 u2 u3 u4 .
Next, using this result,
Dx [u1 u2 u3 u4 u5 ] = Dx [(u1 u2 u3 u4 )u5 ] = (u1 u2 u3 u4 ) u5 + (u1 u2 u3 u4 )u5
= (u1 u2 u3 u4 + u1 u2 u3 u4 + u1 u2 u3 u4 + u1 u2 u3 u4 )u5 + (u1 u2 u3 u4 )u5
= u1 u2 u3 u4 u5 + u1 u2 u3 u4 u5 + u1 u2 u3 u4 u5 + u1 u2 u3 u4 u5 + u1 u2 u3 u4 u5 .
C03S02.063: Let u1 (x) = u2 (x) = u3 (x) = · · · = un−1 (x) = un (x) = f (x). Then the left-hand side of
Eq. (16) is Dx [ (f (x))n ] and the right-hand side is
f (x)[f (x)]n−1 + f (x)f (x)[f (x)]n−2 + [f (x)]2 f (x)[f (x)]n−3 + · · · + [f (x)]n−1 f (x) = n[f (x)]n−1 · f (x).
Therefore if n is a positive integer and f (x) exists, then
Dx [ (f (x))n ] = n(f (x))n−1 · f (x).
C03S02.064: Substitution of f (x) = x2 + x + 1 and n = 100 in the result of Problem 63 yields
Dx [ (x2 + x + 1)100 ] = Dx [ (f (x))n ] = n(f (x))n−1 · f (x) = 100(x2 + x + 1)99 · (2x + 1).
C03S02.065: Let f (x) = x3 − 17x + 35 and let n = 17. Then g (x) = (f (x))n . Hence, by the result in
Problem 63,
g (x) = Dx [ (f (x))n ] = n(f (x))n−1 · f (x) = 17(x3 − 17x + 35)16 · (3x2 − 17).
C03S02.066: We begin with f (x) = ax3 + bx2 + cx + d. Then f (x) = 3ax2 + 2bx + c. The conditions in
the problem require that (simultaneously)
1 = f (0) = d,
0 = f (0) = c, 0 = f (1) = a + b + c + d,
and 0 = f (1) = 3a + 2b + c. These equations have the unique solution a = 2, b = −3, c = 0, and d = 1. Therefore f (x) = 2x3 − 3x2 + 1
is the only possible solution. It is easy to verify that f (x) satisﬁes the conditions required in the problem.
C03S02.067: If n is a positive integer and
f (x) = xn

1 + x2 then
f (x) = (1 + x2 )(nxn−1 ) − (2x)(xn )

11 (1) If n = 0, then (by the reciprocal rule)
f (x) = − 2x

(1 + x2 )2 If n = 2, then by Eq. (1)
f (x) = 2x
.
(1 + x2 )2 In each case there can be but one solution of f (x) = 0, so there is only one horizontal tangent line. If n = 0
it is tangent to the graph of f at the point (0, 1); if n = 2 it is tangent to the graph of f at the point (0, 0).
C03S02.068: If n = 1, then Eq. (1) of the solution of Problem 67 yields
f (x) = 1 − x2
.
(1 + x2 )2 The equation f (x) = 0 has the two solutions x = ± 1, so there are two points on the graph of f where the
tangent line is horizontal: −1, − 1 and 1, 1 .
2
2
C03S02.069: If n is a positive integer and n 3, f (x) = 0 only when the numerator is zero in Eq. (1)
of the solution of Problem 67; that is, when xn−1 (n + [n − 2]x2 ) = 0. But this implies that x = 0 (because
n 3) or that n + [n − 2]x2 = 0. The latter is impossible because n > 0 and [n − 2]x2 0. Therefore the
only horizontal tangent to the graph of f is at the point (0, 0).
C03S02.070: By Eq. (1) in the solution of Problem 67, if
f (x) = x3
,
1 + x2 then f (x) = x2 (3 + x2 )
.
(1 + x2 )2 So f (x) = 1 when
x2 (3 + x2 )
= 1;
(1 + x2 )2
x2 (3 + x2 ) = (1 + x2 )2 ;
x4 + 3x2 = x4 + 2x2 + 1;
x2 = 1.
Therefore there are two points where the line tangent to the graph of f has slope 1; they are −1, − 1 and
2
1, 1 .

Without the chain rule, our only way to diﬀerentiate y (x) would be ﬁrst to expand it:
y (x) = 8 − 192x + 2688x2 − 25600x3 + 181248x4 − 983040x5 + 4128768x6 − 13369344x7 + 32636928x8 − 57671680x9 + 69206016x10 − 50331648x11 + 16777216x12 . Then we could diﬀerentiate y (x) using the linear combination and power rules:
y (x) = −192 + 5376x − 76800x2 + 724992x3 − 4915200x4 + 24772608x5 − 93585408x6 + 261095424x7 − 519045120x8 + 692060160x9 − 553648128x10 + 201326592x11 . Fortunately, the chain rule is available—and even if not, we still have Maple, Derive, Mathematica, and

C03S04.058: If x = 0, then f (x) > 0; moreover, f (x) appears to be approaching zero as | x | increases
without bound. In contrast, f (x) appears to approach + ∞ as x → 0. Hence the graph of f must be the
one shown in Fig. 3.4.13(f).
C03S04.059: Note that f (x) > 0 if x < 0 whereas f (x) < 0 if x > 0. Moreover, as x → 0, | f (x) | appears
to approach + ∞. So the graph of f must be the one shown in Fig. 3.4.13(b).
C03S04.060: We see that f (x) > 0 for x < 1.4 (approximately), that f (x) = 0 when x ≈ 1.4, and that
f (x) < 0 for 1.4 < x < 2; moreover, f (x) → −∞ as x → 2− . So the graph of f must be the one shown in
Fig. 3.4.13(a).
C03S04.061: We see that f (x) < 0 for −2 < x < −1.4 (approximately), that f (x) > 0 for −1.4 < x < 1.4
(approximately), and that f (x) < 0 for 1.4 < x < 2. Also f (x) = 0 when x ≈ ± 1.4. Therefore the graph
of f must be the one shown in Fig. 3.4.13(e).
C03S04.062: Figure 3.4.12 shows a graph whose derivative is negative for x < −1, positive for −1 < x <
−0.3 (approximately), negative for −0.3 < x < 0, positive for 0 < x < 0.3 (approximately), negative for
0.3 < x < 1, and positive for 1 < x. Moreover, f (x) = 0 when x = ± 1 and when x ≈ ± 0.3. Finally,
f (x) → −∞ as x → 0− whereas f (x) → ∞ as x → 0+ . Therefore the graph of f must be the one shown

C03S04.065: Whether y = + 1 − x2 or y = − 1 − x2 , it follows easily that dy/dx = −x/y . The slope of

C03S04.067: The line tangent to the parabola y = x2 at the point Q(a, a2 ) has slope 2a, so the normal
to the parabola at Q has slope −1/(2a). The normal also passes through P (18, 0), so we can ﬁnd its slope
another way—by using the two-point formula. Thus

a − 18 18 − a = 2a3 ;
2a3 + a − 18 = 0.
By inspection, a = 2 is a solution of the last equation. Thus a − 2 is a factor of the cubic, and division yields
2a3 + a − 18 = (a − 2)(2a2 + 4a + 9).
The quadratic factor has negative discriminant, so a = 2 is the only real solution of 2a3 + a − 18 = 0.
Therefore the normal line has slope − 1 and equation x + 4y = 18.

C03S04.068: Let Q(a, a2 ) be a point on the parabola y = x2 at which some line through P (3, 10) is

This yields the cubic equation 2a3 − 19a − 3 = 0, and after a little computation we ﬁnd one of its small

Because u = a2/3 > 0, u = 1 is the only solution, so a = 1 and a = −1 yield the two possibilities for the

L and OP are also perpendicular in this case. Finally, if v = 0 then OP lies on the x-axis and L is vertical,
so the two are also perpendicular in this case. In every case we see that L and OP are perpendicular.
C03S04.071: Equation (3) is an identity, and if two functions have identical graphs on an interval, then
their derivatives will also be identically equal to each other on that interval. (That is, if f (x) ≡ g (x) on an
interval I , then f (x) ≡ g (x) there.) There is no point in diﬀerentiating both sides of an algebraic equation.

This formula is of course valid for x < 0 as well. To show this, observe that the previous argument is

As in the concluding paragraph in the previous solution, it is easy to show that this formula holds for

C03S05.001: Because f (x) = 1 − x is decreasing everywhere, it can attain a maximum only at a left-hand
endpoint of its domain and a minimum only at a right-hand endpoint of its domain. Its domain [−1, 1) has
no right-hand endpoint, so f has no minimum value. Its maximum value occurs at −1, is f (−1) = 2, and is
the global maximum value of f on its domain.
C03S05.002: Because f (x) = 2x + 1 is increasing everywhere, it can have a minimum only at a left-hand
endpoint of its domain and a maximum only at a right-hand endpoint of its domain. But its domain [ −1, 1)
has no right-hand endpoint, so f has no maximum. It has the global minimum value f (−1) = −1 at the
left-hand endpoint of its domain.
C03S05.003: Because f (x) = | x | is decreasing for x < 0 and increasing for x > 0, it can have a maximum
only at a left-hand or a right-hand endpoint of its domain (−1, 1). But its domain has no endpoints, so f
has no maximum value. It has the global minimum value f (0) = 0.
C03S05.004: Because g (x) =

x→0 so f has no maximum value. It has the global minimum value f (1) = 1 at the right-hand endpoint of its
domain.
C03S05.005: Given: f (x) = | x − 2 | on (1, 4]. If x > 2 then f (x) = x − 2, which is increasing for x > 2; if
x < 2 then f (x) = 2 − x, which is decreasing for x < 2. So f can have a maximum only at an endpoint of
its domain; the only endpoint is at x = 4, where f (x) has the maximum value f (4) = 2. Because f (x) → 1
as x → 1+ , the extremum at x = 4 is in fact a global maximum. Finally, f (2) = 0 is the global minimum
value of f .
C03S05.006: If f (x) = 5 − x2 , then f (x) = −2x, so x = 0 is the only critical point of f . We note that
f is increasing for x < 0 and decreasing for x > 0, so f (0) = 5 is the global maximum value of f . Because
f (−1) = 4 and f (x) → 1 as x → 2− , the minimum at x = −1 is local but not global.
C03S05.007: Given: f (x) = x3 + 1 on [ −1, 1]. The only critical point of f occurs where f (x) = 3x2 is
zero; that is, at x = 0. But f (x) < 1 = f (0) if x < 0 whereas f (x) > 1 = f (0) if x > 0, so there is no
extremum at x = 0. By Theorem 1 (page 142), f must have a global maximum and a global minimum.
The only possible locations are at the endpoints of the domain of f , and therefore f (−1) = 0 is the global
minimum value of f and f (1) = 2 is its global maximum value.
C03S05.008: If
f (x) = 1
,
x2 + 1 then f (x) = − 2x
,
(x2 + 1)2 so x = 0 is the only critical point of f . Because g (x) = x2 + 1 is increasing for x > 0 and decreasing for
x < 0, we may conclude that f is decreasing for x > 0 and increasing for x < 0. Therefore f has the global
maximum value f (0) = 1 at x = 0 and no other extrema of any kind.

2
[2, 3] of f , so there are no extrema at those three points. By Theorem 1 f must have a global maximum
and a global minimum, which therefore must occur at the endpoints of its domain. Because f (2) = − 1 and
2
f (3) = − 1 , the former is the global minimum value of f and the latter is its global maximum value.

the last of these three points. We note that
f 1
2 =4 and that lim f (x) = + ∞ = lim f (x),
− x→0+ x→1 and therefore f has no global maximum value. The reciprocal of f (x) is

2 C03S05.011: f (x) = 3 is never zero and always exists. Therefore f (−2) = −8 is the global minimum
value of f and f (3) = 7 is its global maximum value.
C03S05.012: f (x) = −3 always exists and is never zero. Therefore f (5) = −11 is the global minimum
value of f and f (−1) = 7 is its global maximum value.
C03S05.013: h (x) = −2x always exists and is zero only at x = 0, which is not in the domain of h.
Therefore h(1) = 3 is the global maximum value of h and h(3) = −5 is its global minimum value.
C03S05.014: f (x) = 2x always exists and is zero only at x = 0, an endpoint of the domain of f . Therefore
f (0) = 3 is the global minimum value of f and f (5) = 28 is its global maximum value.
C03S05.015: g (x) = 2(x − 1) always exists and is zero only at x = 1. Because g (−1) = 4, g (1) = 0,
and g (4) = 9, the global minimum value of g is 0 and the global maximum is 9. If −1 < x < 0 then
g (x) = (x − 1)2 < 4, so the extremum at x = −1 is a local maximum.
C03S05.016: h (x) = 2x + 4 always exists and is zero only at x = −2. Because h(−3) = 4, h(−2) = 3,
and h(0) = 7, the global minimum value of h is 3 and its global maximum is 7. Because the graph of h is a
parabola opening upward, h(−3) = 4 is a local (but not global) maximum value of h.
C03S05.017: f (x) = 3x2 − 3 = 3(x + 1)(x − 1) always exists and is zero when x = −1 and when x = 1.
Because f (−2) = −2, f (−1) = 2, f (1) = −2, and f (4) = 52, the latter is the global maximum value of f
and −2 is its global minimum value—note that the minimum occurs at two diﬀerent points on the graph.
Because f is continuous on [ −2, 2], it must have a global maximum there, and our work shows that it occurs
at x = −1. But because f (4) = 52 > 2 = f (−1), f (−1) = 2 is only a local maximum for f on its domain
[ −2, 4]. Summary: Global minimum value −2, local maximum value 2, global maximum value 52.
2 C03S05.018: g (x) = 6x2 − 18x + 12 = 6(x − 1)(x − 2) always exists and is zero when x = 1 and when
x = 2. Because g (0) = 0, g (1) = 5, g (2) = 4, and g (4) = 32, the global minimum value of g is g (0) = 0 and
its global maximum is g (4) = 32. Because g is continuous on [0, 2], it must have a global maximum there,
so g (1) = 5 is a local maximum for g on [0, 4]. Because g is continuous on [1, 4], it must have a global
minimum there, so g (2) = 4 is a local minimum for g on [0, 4].

continuous on its domain [1, 3] and its only critical point is x = 2. Because f (1) = 17, f (2) = 12, and
f (3) = 43 ≈ 14.333, the global maximum value of f is 17 and its global minimum value is 12. Because f
3
is continuous on [2, 3], it must have a global maximum there, and therefore f (3) = 43 is a local maximum
3
value of f on [1, 3].
C03S05.020: If f (x) = x2 + C03S05.021: f (x) = −2 always exists and is never zero, so f (1) = 1 is the global minimum value of f
and f (−1) = 5 is its global maximum value.
C03S05.022: f (x) = 2x − 4 always exists and is zero when x = 2, which is an endpoint of the domain of
f . Hence f (2) = −1 is the global minimum value of f and f (0) = 3 is its global maximum value.
C03S05.023: f (x) = −12 − 18x always exists and is zero when x = − 2 . Because f (−1) = 8, f − 2 = 9,
3
3
and f (1) = −16, the global maximum value of f is 9 and its global minimum value is −16. Consideration of
the interval −1, − 2 shows that f (−1) = 8 is a local minimum of f .
3
C03S05.024: f (x) = 4x − 4 always exists and is zero when x = 1. Because f (0) = 7, f (1) = 5, and
f (2) = 7, the global maximum value of f is 7 and its global minimum value is 5.
C03S05.025: f (x) = 3x2 − 6x − 9 = 3(x + 1)(x − 3) always exists and is zero when x = −1 and when
x = 3. Because f (−2) = 3, f (−1) = 10, f (3) = −22, and f (4) = −15, the global minimum value of f is
−22 and its global maximum is 10. Consideration of the interval [ −2, −1] shows that f (−2) = 3 is a local
minimum of f ; consideration of the interval [3, 4] shows that f (4) = −15 is a local maximum of f .
C03S05.026: f (x) = 3x2 + 1 always exists and is never zero, so f (−1) = −2 is the global minimum value
of f and f (2) = 10 is its global maximum value.
C03S05.027: f (x) = 15x4 − 15x2 = 15x2 (x + 1)(x − 1) always exists and is zero at x = −1, at x = 0,
and at x = 1. We note that f (−2) = −56, f (−1) = 2, f (0) = 0, f (1) = −2, and f (2) = 56. So the global
minimum value of f is −56 and its global maximum value is 56. Consideration of the interval [ −2, 0] shows
that f (−1) = 2 is a local maximum of f on its domain [ −2, 2]. Similarly, f (1) = −2 is a local minimum of
f there. Suppose that x is near, but not equal, to zero. Then f (x) = x3 (3x2 − 5) is negative if x > 0 and
positive if x < 0. Therefore there is no extremum at x = 0.
C03S05.028: Given: f (x) = | 2x − 3 | on [1, 2]. If x > 3 then f (x) = 2x − 3, so that f (x) = 2. If x < 3
2
2
then f (x) = 3 − 2x, so that f (x) = −2. Therefore f (x) is never zero. But it fails to exist at x = 3 . Because
2
f (1) = 1, f 3 = 0, and f (2) = 1, the global maximum value of f is 1 and its global minimum value is 0.
2
3 C03S05.029: Given: f (x) = 5 + | 7 − 3x | on [1, 5]. If x < 7 , then −3x > −7, so that 7 − 3x > 0; in this
3
case, f (x) = 12 − 3x and so f (x) = −3. Similarly, if x > 7 , then f (x) = 3x − 2 and so f (x) = 3. Hence
3
f (x) is never zero, but it fails to exist at x = 7 . Now f (1) = 9, f 7 = 5, and f (5) = 13, so 13 is the global
3
3
maximum value of f and 5 is its global minimum value. Consideration of the continuous function f on the
interval 1, 7 shows that f (1) = 9 is a local maximum of f on its domain.
3
C03S05.030: Given: f (x) = | x + 1 | + | x − 1 | on [ −2, 2]. If x < −1 then f (x) = −(x + 1) − (x − 1) = −2x,
so that f (x) = −2. If x > 1 then f (x) = x + 1 + x − 1 = 2x, so that f (x) = 2. If −1
x
1 then
f (x) = x + 1 − (x − 1) = 2, so that f (x) = 0. But f (x) does not exist at x = −1 or at x = 1. We note that
f (−2) = 4, f (x) = 2 for all x such that −1 x 1, and that f (2) = 4. So 4 is the global maximum value
of f and 2 is its global minimum value. Observe that f has inﬁnitely many critical points: every number in
the interval [ −1, 1].
C03S05.031: f (x) = 150x2 − 210x + 72 = 6(5x − 3)(5x − 4) always exists and is zero at x = 3 and at

x = 4 . Now f (0) = 0, f 3 = 16.2, f 4 = 16, and f (1) = 17. Hence 17 is the global maximum value of

f and 0 is its global minimum value. Consideration of the intervals 0, 4 and 3 , 1 shows that 16.2 is a

C03S05.036: If f (x) = 2 − x1/3 , then
f (x) = − 1

[ −1, 8]. And f (−1) = 3, f (0) = 2, and f (8) = 0, so the global maximum value of f is 3 and its global
4 minimum value is 0. Because g (x) = x1/3 is an increasing function, f (x) = 2 − x1/3 is decreasing on its
domain, and therefore there is no extremum at x = 0.

C03S05.041: If A = 0, then f (x) ≡ A is never zero, but because f is continuous it must have global
extrema. Therefore they occur at the endpoints. If A = 0, then f is a constant function, and its maximum
and minimum value B occurs at every point of the interval, including the two endpoints.
C03S05.042: The hypotheses imply that f has no critical points in (a, b), but f must have global extrema.
Therefore they occur at the endpoints.
C03S05.043: f (x) = 0 if x is not an integer; f (x) does not exist if x is an integer (we saw in Chapter 2
that f (x) = [[x]] is discontinuous at each integer).
C03S05.044: If f (x) = ax2 + bx + c and a = 0, then f (x) = 2ax + b. Clearly f (x) exists for all x,
and f (x) = 0 has the unique solution x = −b/(2a). Therefore f has exactly one critical point on the real
number line.
5 C03S05.045: If f (x) = ax3 + bx2 + cx + d and a = 0, then f (x) = 3ax2 + 2bx + c exists for all x, but
the quadratic equation 3ax2 + 2bx + c = 0 has two solutions if the discriminant ∆ = 4b2 − 12ac is positive,
one solution if ∆ = 0, and no [real] solutions if ∆ < 0. Therefore f has either no critical points, exactly one
critical point, or exactly two. Examples:
f (x) = x3 + x
f (x) = x3
f (x) = x − 3x
3 has no critical points,
has exactly one critical point, and
has exactly two critical points. C03S05.046: A formula for f is
f (x) = min{ x − [[x]], 1 + [[x]] − x }. (1) If you are not comfortable with the idea that “min” is a “function,” an equivalent way of deﬁning f is this:
f (x) = 1
1 − 2x − 1 − 2[[x]]
2 . To verify that f performs as advertised, suppose that x is a real number and that n = [[x]], so that n
n + 1. Case (1): n x n + 1 . Then
2
1
2 x − [[x]] = x − n and 1 + [[x]] − x = 1 + n − x = 1 − (x − n) x< 1
,
2 so that Eq. (1) yields f (x) = x − n, which is indeed the distance from x to the nearest integer, because in
Case (1) the nearest integer is n. Case (2), in which n + 1 < x < n + 1, is handled similarly.

The graph of f is shown next. It should be clear that f (x) fails to exist at every integral multiple of 1

and that its derivative is either +1 or −1 otherwise. Hence its critical points are the integral multiples of 1 .

C03S05.048: The derivative is negative on (−∞, −1.0), positive on (−1.0, 1.0), negative on (1.0, 3.0), and

C03S05.052: The derivative is negative on (−∞, −2.2), positive on (−2.2, 2.2), and negative again on

C03S06.001: With x > 0, y > 0, and x + y = 50, we are to maximize the product P = xy .
P = P (x) = x(50 − x) = 50x − x2 , 0 < x < 50 (x < 50 because y > 0.) The product is not maximal if we let x = 0 or x = 50, so we adjoin the endpoints to
the domain of P ; thus the continuous function P (x) = 50x − x2 has a global maximum on the closed interval
[0, 50], and the maximum does not occur at either endpoint. Because f is diﬀerentiable, the maximum must
occur at a point where P (x) = 0: 50 − 2x = 0, and so x = 25. Because this is the only critical point of P ,
it follows that x = 25 maximizes P (x). When x = 25, y = 50 − 25 = 25, so the two positive real numbers
with sum 50 and maximum possible product are 25 and 25.
C03S06.002: If two parallel sides of the rectangle both have length x and the other two sides both have
length y , then we are to maximize the area A = xy given that 2x + 2y = 200. So
A = A(x) = x(100 − x), 0 100. x Clearly the maximum value of A occurs at a critical point of A in the interval (0, 100). But A (x) = 100 − 2x,
so x = 50 is the location of the maximum. When x = 50, also y = 50, so the rectangle of maximal area is a
square of area 502 = 2500 ft2 .
C03S06.003: If the coordinates of the “fourth vertex” are (x, y ), then y = 100 − 2x and the area of the
rectangle is A = xy . So we are to maximize
A(x) = x(100 − 2x) 0 50. x By the usual argument the solution occurs where A (x) = 0, thus where x = 25, y = 50, and the maximum
area is 1250.
C03S06.004: If the side of the pen parallel to the wall has length x and the two perpendicular sides both
have length y , then we are to maximize area A = xy given x + 2y = 600. Thus
A = A(y ) = y (600 − 2y ), 0 300. y Adjoining the endpoints to the domain is allowed because the maximum we seek occurs at neither endpoint.
Therefore the maximum occurs at an interior critical point. We have A (y ) = 600 − 4y , so the only critical
point of A is y = 150. When y = 150, we have x = 300, so the maximum possible area that can be enclosed
is 45000 m2 .
C03S06.005: If x is the length of each edge of the base of the box and y denotes the height of the box,
then its volume is given by V = x2 y . Its total surface area is the sum of the area x2 of its bottom and four
times the area xy of each of its vertical sides, so x2 + 4xy = 300. Thus
V = V (x) = x2 · 300 − x2

10 3. so V (x) always exists and V (x) = 0 when x = 10 (we discard the solution x = −10; it’s not in the domain
of V ). Then
V (1) = 299
= 74.75,
4 V (10) = 500, and √
V 10 3 = 0, so the maximum possible volume of the box is 500 in.3 .
C03S06.006: The excess of the number x over its square is f (x) = x − x2 . In this problem we also know
that 0 x 1. Then f (x) = 0 at the endpoints of its domain, so the maximum value of f (x) must occur
at an interior critical point. But f (x) = 1 − 2x, so the only critical point of f is x = 1 , which must yield a
2
maximum because f is continuous on [0, 1]. So the maximum value of x − x2 for 0 x 1 is 1 .
4
C03S06.007: If the two numbers are x and y , then we are to minimize S = x2 + y 2 given x > 0,
y > 0, and x + y = 48. So S (x) = x2 + (48 − x)2 , 0
x
48. Here we adjoin the endpoints to the
domain of S to ensure the existence of a maximum, but we must test the values of S at these endpoints
because it is not immediately clear that neither S (0) nor S (48) yields the maximum value of S . Now
S (x) = 2x − 2(48 − x); the only interior critical point of S is x = 24, and when x = 24, y = 24 as well.
Finally, S (0) = (48)2 = 2304 = S (48) > 1152 = S (24), so the answer is 1152.
C03S06.008: Let x be the length of the side around which the rectangle is rotated and let y be the length
of each perpendicular side. Then 2x + 2y = 36. The radius of the cylinder is y and its height is x, so its
volume is V = π y 2 x. So
V = V (y ) = π y 2 (18 − y ) = π (18y 2 − y 3 ),
with natural domain 0 < y < 18. We adjoin the endpoints to the domain because neither y = 0 nor y = 18
maximizes V (y ), and deduce the existence of a global maximum at an interior critical point. Now
V (y ) = π (36y − 3y 2 ) = 3π y (12 − y ).
So V (y ) = 0 when y = 0 and when y = 12. The former value of y minimizes V (y ), so the maximum possible
volume of the cylinder is V (12) = 864π .
C03S06.009: Let x and y be the two numbers. Then x + y = 10, x
the sum of their cubes,
S = x3 + y 3 : S (x) = x3 + (10 − x)3 , 0, and y 0 x 0. We are to minimize 10. Now S (x) = 3x2 − 3(10 − x)2 , so the values of x to be tested are x = 0, x = 5, and x = 10. At the endpoints,
S = 1000; when x = 5, S = 250 (the minimum).
C03S06.010: Draw a cross section of the cylindrical log—a circle of radius r. Inscribe in this circle a
cross section of the beam—a rectangle of width w and height h. Draw a diagonal of the rectangle; the
Pythagorean theorem yields x2 + h2 = 4r2 . The strength S of the beam is given by S = kwh2 where k is a
positive constant. Because h2 = 4r2 − w2 , we have
S = S (w) = kw(4r2 − w2 ) = k (4wr2 − w3 )
with natural domain 0 < w < 2r. We adjoin the endpoints to this domain; this is permissible because S = 0 at
each, and so is not maximal. Next, S (w) = k (4r2 − 3w2 ); S (w) = 0 when 3w2 = 4r2 , and the corresponding
(positive) value of w yields the maximum of S (we know that S (w) must have a maximum on [0, 2r ] because
2 of the continuity of S on this interval, and we also know that the maximum does not occur at either endpoint,
√
so there is only one possible location for the maximum). At maximum, h2 = 4r2 − w2 = 3w2 − w2 , so h = w 2
describes the shape of the beam of greatest strength.
C03S06.011: As in Fig. 3.6.18, let y denote the length of each of the internal dividers and of the two sides
parallel to them; let x denote the length of each of the other two sides. The total length of all the fencing is
2x + 4y = 600 and the area of the corral is A = xy . Hence
A = A(y ) = 600 − 4y
· y = 300y − 2y 2 ,
2 0 y 150. Now A (y ) = 0 only when y = 75, and A(0) = 0 = A(150), and therefore the maximum area of the corral is
A(75) = 11250 yd2 .
C03S06.012: Let r denote the radius of the cylinder and h its height. We are to maximize its volume
V = π r2 h given the constraint that the total surface area is 150π :
2π r2 + 2π rh = 150π , so that h= 75 − r2
.
r Thus
V = V (r) = π r(75 − r2 ) = π (75r − r3 ), 0<r< √ 75. √
We may adjoin both endpoints to this domain without creating a spurious maximum, so we use 0, 5 3
as the domain of V . Next, V (r) = π (75 − 3r2 ). Hence V (r) always exists and its only zero in the domain
of V occurs when r = 5 (and h = 10). But V is zero at the two endpoints of its domain, so V (5) = 250π is
the maximum volume of such a cylinder.
C03S06.013: If the rectangle has sides x and y , then x2 + y 2 = 162 by the Pythagorean theorem. The
area of the rectangle is then
A(x) = x 256 − x2 , 0 x 16. A positive quantity is maximized exactly when its square is maximized, so in place of A we maximize
2 f (x) = (A(x)) = 256x2 − x4 . √
The only solutions of f (x) = 0 in the domain of A are x = 0 and x = 8 2. But A(0) = 0 = A(16), so
√
x = 8 2 yields the maximum value 128 of A.
C03S06.014: If the far side of the rectangle has length 2x (this leads to simpler algebra than length x),
and the sides perpendicular to the far side have length y , then by the Pythagorean theorem, x2 + y 2 = L2 .
The area of the rectangle is A = 2xy , so we maximize
A(x) = 2x L2 − x2 , 0 x L by maximizing
2 f (x) = (A(x)) = 4(L2 x2 − x4 ). √
Now f (x) = 4(2L2 x − 4x3 ) = 8x(L2 − 2x2 ) is zero when √ = 0 (rejected; A(0) = 0) and when x = 1 L 2.

with the two (approximate) solutions T ≈ 79.532 and T ≈ 3.967. The formula for V (T ) is valid only in
the range 0
T
30, so we reject the ﬁrst solution. Finally, V (0) = 999.87, V (30) ≈ 1003.763, and
V (3.967) ≈ 999.71. Thus the volume is minimized when T ≈ 3.967, and therefore water has its greatest
density at about 3.967◦ C.
C03S06.016: Let P (x, 0) be the lower right-hand corner point of the rectangle. The rectangle then has
base 2x, height 4 − x2 , and thus area

Now A (x) = 8 − 6x2 ; A (x) = 0 when √ =

are to maximize its volume V = x2 y given the constraint 2x2 + 4xy = 600. Solve the latter for y to write

10 3. The solution of V (x) = 0 in the domain of V is x = 10. Because V (10) = 1000 > V (1) = 149.5 >
√
V 10 3 = 0, this shows that x = 10 maximizes V and that the maximum value of V is 1000 cm3 .
C03S06.018: Let x denote the radius of the cylinder and y its height. Then its total surface area is
π x2 + 2π xy = 300π , so x2 + 2xy = 300. We are to maximize its volume V = π x2 y . Because
y= 300 − x2

10 3. It is then easy to show that x = 10 maximizes V (x), that y = x = 10 as well, and thus that the maximum
possible volume of the can is 1000π in.3
C03S06.019: Let x be the length of the edge of each of the twelve small squares. Then each of the three
cross-shaped pieces will form boxes with base length 1 − 2x and height x, so each of the three will have
volume x(1 − 2x)2 . Both of the two cubical boxes will have edge x and thus volume x3 . So the total volume
of all ﬁve boxes will be
V (x) = 3x(1 − 2x)2 + 2x3 = 14x3 − 12x2 + 3x, 0 x 1
.
2 Now V (x) = 42x2 − √ x + 3; V (x) = 0 when 14x2 − 8x − 1 = 0. The quadratic formula gives the two
24

solutions x = 14 4 ± 2 . These are approximately 0.3867 and 0.1847, and both lie in the domain of V .
Finally, V (0) = 0, V (0.1847) ≈ 0.2329, V (0.3867) ≈ 0.1752, and V (0.5) = 0.25. Therefore, to maximize V ,
one must cut each of the three large squares into four smaller squares of side length 1 each and form the
2
resulting twelve squares into two cubes. At maximum volume there will be only two boxes, not ﬁve.
C03S06.020: Let x be the length of each edge of the square base of the box and let h denote its height.
Then its volume is V = x2 h. The total cost of the box is $144, hence
4xh + x2 + 2x2 = 144 and thus Therefore

The natural domain of V is the open interval 0, 4 3 , but we may adjoin the endpoints as usual to obtain
a closed interval. Also
V = V (x) = 9
V (x) = 36 − x2 ,
4
so V (x) always exists and is zero only at x = 4 (reject the other root x = −4). Finally, V (x) = 0 at the
endpoints of its domain, so V (4) = 96 (ft3 ) is the maximum volume of such a box. The dimensions of the
largest box are 4 ft square on the base by 6 ft high.
C03S06.021: Let x denote the edge length of one square and y that of the other. Then 4x + 4y = 80, so
y = 20 − x. The total area of the two squares is A = x2 + y 2 , so
A = A(x) = x2 + (20 − x)2 = 2x2 − 40x + 400,
with domain (0, 20); adjoin the endpoints as usual. Then A (x) = 4x − 40, which always exists and which
vanishes when x = 10. Now A(0) = 400 = A(20), whereas A(10) = 200. So to minimize the total area of the
two squares, make two equal squares. To maximize it, make only one square.
C03S06.022: Let r be the radius of the circle and x the edge of the square. We are to maximize total area

100/(π + 4) ≈ 14.00248 (cm). For maximum area, bend all the wire into a circle of radius 50/π ≈ 15.91549

C03S06.023: Let x be the length of each segment of fence perpendicular to the wall and let y be the length
of each segment parallel to the wall.
5 Case 1: The internal fence is perpendicular to the wall. Then y = 600 − 3x and the enclosure will have
area A(x) = 600x − 3x2 , 0 x 200. Then A (x) = 0 when x = 100; A(100) = 30000 (m2 ) is the maximum

Answer: The maximum possible area of the enclosure is 30000 m2 . The divider must be perpendicular to
the wall and of length 100 m. The side parallel to the wall is to have length 300 m.
C03S06.024: See Fig. 3.6.22 of the text. Suppose that the pen measures x (horizontal) by y (vertical).
Then it has area A = xy .
Case 1: x 10, y 5. Then
x + (x − 10) + y + (y − 5) = 85, so x + y = 50. Therefore
A = A(x) = x(50 − x) = 50x − x2 , 10 45. x Then A (x) = 0 when x = 25; A(25) = 625. Note that A(10) = 400 and that A(45) = 225.
Case 2: 0 x 10, y 5. Then
x + y + (y − 5) = 85, so x + 2y = 90. Therefore
A = A(x) = x 90 − x

A(10) = 400.
Case 3: x 10, 0 y 5. Then
x + (x − 10) + y = 85, so 2x + y = 95. Therefore
A = A(x) = x(95 − 2x) = 95x − 2x2 , 45 47.5. x In this case A (x) = 0 when x = 23.75, not in the domain of A. Note that A(45) = 225 and that A(47.5) = 0.
Conclusion: The area of the pen is maximized when the pen is square, 25 m on each side (the maximum
from Case 1).
C03S06.025: Let the dimensions of the box be x by x by y . We are to maximize V = x2 y subject to some
conditions on x and y . According to the poster on the wall of the Bogart, Georgia Post Oﬃce, the length
of the box is the larger of x and y , and the girth is measured around the box in a plane perpendicular to its
length.
Case 1: x < y . Then the length is y , the girth is 4x, and the mailing constraint is 4x + y
clear that we take 4x + y = 100 to maximize V , so that
V = V (x) = x2 (100 − 4x) = 100x2 − 4x3 ,

V (50/3) = 250000/27 ≈ 9259 (in.3 ). The latter is the maximum in Case 1. Case 2: x y . Then the length is x and the girth is 2x + y , although you may get some argument from
a postal worker who may insist that it’s 4x. So 3x + 2y = 100, and thus

2
V (200/9) = 2000000/243 ≈ 8230 (in.3 ). Case 3: You lose the argument in Case 2. Then the box has length x and girth 4x, so 5x = 100; thus
x = 20. To maximize the total volume, no calculus is needed—let y = x. Then the box of maximum volume
will have volume 203 = 8000 (in.3 ). Answer: The maximum is 250000
in.3
27 C03S06.026: In this problem the girth of the package is its circumference; no one would interpret “girth”
in any other way. So suppose that the package has length x and radius r. Then it has volume V = π r2 x
where x + 2π r = 100. We seek to maximize
V = V (r) = π r2 (100 − 2π r) = π (100r2 − 2π r3 ), 0 r 50

π Now
V (r) = π (200r − 6π r2 ) = 2π r(100 − 3π r);
V (r) = 0 when r = 0 and when r = 100/(3π ). But
V (0) = 0, V 50

C (n) = 0 when n = 5 10 ≈ 5.27 presses. But an integral number of presses must be used, so the actual

number that will minimize the cost is either 5 or 6, unless the minimum occurs at one of the two endpoints.
The values in question are C (1) ≈ 227.2, C (5) ≈ 136.1, C (6) ≈ 136.5, and C (8) ≈ 140.7. So to minimize
cost and thereby maximize the proﬁt, ﬁve presses should be used.
C03S06.028: Let x denote the number of workers hired. Each worker will pick 900/x bushels; each worker
will spend 180/x hours picking beans. The supervisor cost will be 1800/x dollars, and the cost per worker
will be 8 + (900/x) dollars. Thus the total cost will be
C (x) = 8x + 900 +

x 1 x. It is clear that large values of x make C (x) large, so the global minimum of C (x) occurs either at x = 1 or
where C (x) = 0. Assume for the moment that x can take on all real number values in [1, + ∞), not merely
integral values, so that C is deﬁned. Then
C (x) = 8 − 1800

x2 when x2 = 225. Thus C (15) = 0. Now C (1) = 2708 and C (15) = 1140, so ﬁfteen workers should be hired; the cost to pick
each bushel will be approximately $1.27.
C03S06.029: We are to minimize the total cost C over a ten-year period. This cost is the sum of the

3
−2 + 200/3 ≈ 6.165 (in.). The problem itself suggests that x must be an integer, so we check x = 6 and
x = 7 along with the endpoints of the domain of C . In dollars, C (0) = 5000, C (6) ≈ 2150, C (7) ≈ 2161,
and C (10) ≈ 2333. Result: Install six inches of insulation. The annual savings over the situation with no
insulation at all then will be one-tenth of 5000 − 2150, about $285 per year.
C03S06.030: We assume that each one-cent increase in price reduces sales by 50 burritos per night. Let
x be the amount, in cents, by which the price is increased. The resulting proﬁt is
P (x) = (50 + x)(5000 − 5x) − 25(5000 − 50x) − 100000
= (25 + x)(5000 − 50x) − 100000
= 25000 + 3750x − 50x2 , −50 x. Because P (x) < 0 for large values of x and for x = −50, P will be maximized where P (x) = 0:
P (x) = 3750 − 100x; P (x) = 0 when x = 37.5. Now P (37) = 953, P (37.5) ≈ 953.13, and P (38) = 953. Therefore proﬁt is maximized when the selling price
is either 87/ or 88/, and the maximum proﬁt will be $953.

C03S06.031: Let x be the number of ﬁve-cent fare increases. The resulting revenue will be
R(x) = (150 + 5x)(600 − 40x), −15 x 15 (the revenue is the product of the price and the number of passengers). Now

R (x) = −3000 − 400x; R (x) = 0

The fare should be either $1.10 or $1.15; this is a reduction of 40 or 35 cents, respectively, and each results
in the maximum possible revenue of $1012 per day.
C03S06.032: The following ﬁgure shows a central cross section of the sphere and inscribed cylinder. The
radius of the cylinder is r and its height is h; the radius of the sphere is R. From the Pythagorean theorem

Because x > 0, x = 1 R 2. The corresponding value of P (x) is 4R 2, and P (0) = 4R = P (R). So the

former value of x maximizes the perimeter P . Because y 2 = R2 − x2 and because R2 − x2 = x2 at maximum,
y = x at maximum. Therefore the rectangle of largest perimeter that can be inscribed in a circle is a square.
C03S06.036: Let (x, y ) be the coordinates of the vertex of the rectangle in the ﬁrst quadrant. Then, by

with its corner at the origin in the xy -plane, its base on the nonnegative x-axis, and the vertical part on the
nonnegative y -axis. The two ends of the L have coordinates (0, 60 − x) and (x, 0), so they are at distance
d = d(x) = x2 + (60 − x)2 , 0 60. x A positive quantity is minimized when its square is minimal, so we minimize
f (x) = (d(x))2 = x2 + (60 − x)2 , 0 x 60. Then f (x) = 2x − 2(60 − x) = 4x − 120; f (x) = 0 when x = 30. Now f (0) = f (60) = 3600, whereas

d(x) = x2 + (x2 − 1)2 . So we minimize
f (x) = (d(x))2 = x4 − x2 + 1,
where the domain of f is the set of all real numbers. But because f (x) is large positive when |x| is large, we
will not exclude a minimum if we restrict the domain of f to be an interval of the form [ −a, a ] where a is a
large positive number. On the interval [ −a, a ], f is continuous and thus has a global minimum, which does
not occur at ±a because f (±a) is large positive. Because f (x) exists for all x, the minimum of f occurs at
a point where f (x) = 0:

C03S06.044: Place the base of the triangle on the x-axis and its upper vertex on the y -axis. Then its

at (L , W ) in the xy -plane—L = 4500, W = 2000. Part of the path of the power cable will be straight along
the river bank and part will be a diagonal running under water. It makes no diﬀerence whether the straight
part is adjacent to the factory or to the power station, so we assume the former. Thus we suppose that the
power cable runs straight from (0, 0) to (x, 0), then straight from (x, 0) to (L, W ), where 0 x L. Let y
be the length of the diagonal stretch of the cable. Then by the Pythagorean theorem,
W 2 + (L − x)2 = y 2 , so y= W 2 + (L − x)2 . The cost C of the cable is C = kx + 3ky where k is the cost per unit distance of over-the-ground cable.
Therefore the total cost of the cable is
C (x) = kx + 3k W 2 + (L − x)2 , 0 x L. It will not change the solution if we assume that k = 1, and in this case we have
14 3(L − x) C (x) = 1 − W 2 + (L − x)2 . Next, C (x) = 0 when x2 + (L − x)2 = 9(L − x)2 , and this leads to the solution

17x2 − 8x3 + x4 = 64 − 32x + 68x2 − 32x3 + 4x4 .
Therefore we wish to solve f (x) = 0 where
f (x) = 3x4 − 24x4 + 51x2 − 32x + 64.
Now f (0) = 64, f (1) = 62, f (2) = 60, f (3) = 22, and f (4) = −16. Because f (3) > 0 > f (4), we interpolate
to estimate the zero of f (x) between 3 and 4; it turns out that interpolation gives x ≈ 3.58. Subsequent
interpolation yields the more accurate estimate x ≈ 3.45. (The equation f (x) = 0 has exactly two solutions,
x ≈ 3.452462314 and x ≈ 4.559682567.)

√
A 10 3 2 is the same; A(10) = 1200. So the maximum surface area is attained when each cube has edge

π+6 Now V (0) ≈ 2151.66, V (r1 ) ≈ 2973.54, and V (r2 ) ≈ 1743.16. Therefore, to minimize the sum of the

r = r1 ≈ 8.921 in. and x = 0 in.

box has total surface area A, then 2x2 + 4xy = A, and hence
y= A − 2x2

4 0 A/2 . x Then
V (x) = A − 6x2

4 V (x) = 0 when x = A/6 . This critical point clearly lies in the interior of the domain of V , and (almost as clearly) V (x) is increasing
to its left and decreasing to its right. Hence this critical point yields the box of maximal volume. Moreover,

C03S06.057: Let x denote the length of each edge of the square base of the box and let y denote its height.
Given total surface area A, we have x2 + 4xy = A, and hence
y= A − x2
.
4x (1) The volume of the box is V = x2 y , and therefore
V (x) = Ax − x2
,
4 0 x √ A. Next,
V (x) = A − 3x2
;
4 V (x) = 0 when x = A/3 . Because V (x) > 0 to the left of this critical point and V (x) < 0 to the right, it yields the global maximum
value of V (x). By Eq. (1), the corresponding height of the box is 1 A/3 . Therefore the open box with
2
square base and maximal volume has height equal to half the length of the edge of its base.
C03S06.058: Let r denote the radius of the base of the closed cylindrical can, h its height, and A its total
surface area. Then
2π r2 + 2π rh = A, and hence h= A − 2π r2

2π r (1) The volume of the can is V = π r2 h, and thus
V (r) = Ar − 2π r3
,
2 0 r A
2π 1/2 . Next,
V (r) = A − 6π r2
;
2 V (r) = 0 when r= A
6π 1 /2 . Because V (r) > 0 to the left of this critical point and V (r) < 0 to the right, it determines the global
maximum value of V (r). By Eq. (1), it follows that the can of maximum volume has equal height and
diameter.
19 C03S06.059: Let r denote the radius of the base of the open cylindrical can and let h denote its height.
Its total surface area A then satisﬁes the equation π r2 + 2π rh = A, and therefore
h= A − πr2
.
2π r (1) Thus the volume of the can is given by
V (r) = Ar − π r3
,
2 0 A
π r 1 /2 . Next,
V (r) = A − 3π r2
;
2 V (r) = 0 when A
3π r= 1 /2 . Clearly V (r) > 0 to the left of this critical point and V (r) < 0 to the right, so it determines the global
maximum value of V (r). By Eq. (1) the corresponding value of h is the same, so the open cylindrical can of
maximum volume has height equal to its radius.
C03S06.060: Let r denote the interior radius of the cylindrical can and h its interior height. Because the
thickness t of the material of the can will be very small in comparison with r and h, the total amount of
material M used to make the can will be very accurately approximated by multiplying the thickness of the
bottom by its area, the thickness of the curved side by its area, and the thickness of the top by its area.
That is,
π r2 t + 2π rht + 3π r2 t = M, so that h= M − 4π r 2 t
.
2π rt (1) Thus the volume of the can will be given by (the very accurate approximation)
V (r) = M r − 4π r 3 t

2t 0 r M

V (r) = M − 12π r2 t

·
2
3π t 1 /2 . Because V (r) > 0 to the left of this critical point and V (r) < 0 to the right, it yields the global maximum
value of V (r). By (1), the height of the corresponding can is four times as great, so the can of maximum
volume has height twice its diameter (approximately, but quite accurately).
To solve this problem exactly, ﬁrst establish that
4π t(r + t)2 + π ht2 (2 ∗ r + t) = M,
then that
V (r) = M r2 + 4π tr2 (r + t)2

t2 (2 ∗ r + t) Then show that V (r) = 0 when
12π tr4 + 24π t2 r3 + (16π t3 − M )r2 + (4π t4 − M t)r = 0,

A(0.5) = 0.98, A(0.57735) ≈ 0.97428, A(1) = 1, and A(2) = 0.845. Therefore A(t) has a local maximum at t = 0.5, a local minimum at t2 , its global maximum at t = 1, and
its global minimum at t = 2.
To answer the ﬁrst question in Problem 61, Eq. (1) makes it clear that A(t) → + ∞ as t → 0+ and, in
addition, that A(t) → 0 as t → + ∞.

n is even and f (nπ ) = nπ − 2 if n is odd. In particular, f (0) = 2 and f (π ) = π − 2. So the two lines have

C03S07.078: The area of the rectangle is A = 4xy , but x = cos θ and y = sin θ, so
A = A(θ) = 4 sin θ cos θ, 0 π /2. θ Now A (θ) = 4(cos2 θ − sin2 θ) = 4 cos 2θ, so A (θ) = 0 when cos 2θ = 0. Because 0 2θ π , it follows that
2θ = π /2, so θ = π /4. But A(0) = 0 = A(π /2) and A(π /4) = 2, so the latter is the largest possible area of
a rectangle inscribed in the unit circle.

tan θ = 0 (so either θ = 0 or θ = π , which we also reject), or (after replacement of tan2 θ with sec2 θ − 1)
sec2 θ − 2 sec θ − 3 = 0.
It follows that sec θ = 3 or sec θ = −1. We reject the latter as before, and ﬁnd that sec θ = 3, so θ ≈ 1.23095

at the horizontal tangent we have L = 15 3 ≈ 25.98. So the shortest crease is obtained when cos θ = 3 6;
that is, for θ approximately 35◦ 15 52 . The bottom of the crease should be one-quarter of the way across
the page from the lower left-hand corner.
C03S07.083: Set up coordinates so the diameter is on the x-axis and the equation of the circle is x2 + y 2 = 1;
let (x , y ) denote the northwest corner of the trapezoid. The chord from (1, 0) to (x, y ) forms a right triangle
with hypotenuse 2, side z opposite angle θ, and side w; moreover, z = 2 sin θ and w = 2 cos θ. It follows that
y = w sin θ = 2 sin θ cos θ and −x = 1 − w cos θ = − cos 2θ.
Now
A = y (1 − x) = (2 sin θ cos θ)(1 − cos 2θ) = 4 sin θ cos θ sin2 θ,
and therefore
A = A(θ) = 4 sin3 θ cos θ, π
4 θ π
.
2 A (θ) = 12 sin2 θ cos2 θ − 4 sin4 θ
= (4 sin2 θ)(3 cos2 θ − sin2 θ).
To solve A (θ) = 0, we note that sin θ = 0, so we must have 3 cos2 θ = sin2 θ; that is tan2 θ = 3. It follows
that θ = 1 π . The value of A here exceeds its value at the endpoints, so we have found the maximum value

of the area—it is 3 3.

C03S07.084: Let θ = α/2 (see Fig. 3.7.18 of the text) and denote the radius of the circular log by r. Using
the technique of the solution of Problem 82, we ﬁnd that the area of the hexagon is
A = A(θ) = 8r2 sin3 θ cos θ, 0 θ π
.
2 After some simpliﬁcations we also ﬁnd that
dA
= 8r2 (sin2 θ)(4 cos2 θ − 1).
dθ
Now dA/dθ = 0 when sin θ = 0 and when cos θ = 1 . When sin θ = 0, A = 0; also, A(0) = 0 = A 1 π .
2

Therefore A is maximal when cos θ = 1 : θ = 1 π . When this happens, we ﬁnd that α = 2 π and that

β = π − θ = 2 π . Therefore the ﬁgure of maximal area is a regular hexagon.

so dA/dθ = 0 when θ(1 + cos θ) = 2 sin θ. Let θ = 2x; note that 0 < x
condition that dA/dθ = 0 becomes π because 0 < θ 2π . So the sin θ
= tan x.
1 + cos θ x= But this equation has no solution in the interval (0, π ]. So the only possible maximum of A must occur
at an endpoint of its domain, or where x is undeﬁned because the denominator 1 + cos θ is zero—and this
occurs when θ = π . Finally,
A(2π ) = s2

C03S07.086: The length of the forest path is 2 csc θ. So the length of the part of the trip along the road

C03S08.072: Suppose by way of contradiction that log2 3 is a rational number. Then log2 3 = p/q where p
and q are positive integers (both positive because log2 3 > 0). Thus 2p/q = 3, so that 2p = 3q . But if p and
q are positive integers, then 2p is even and 3q is odd, so they cannot be equal. Therefore the assumption
that log2 3 is rational leads to a contradiction, and thus log2 3 is irrational.

h (b): When h = 0.1 the value of log10 (1 + h)1/h is approximately 0.4139. With h = 0.01 we get 0.4321, with
h = 0.001 we get 0.4341, and with h = ±0.0001 we get 0.4343.
C03S08.074: Because exp(ln x) = x, we see ﬁrst that

Hence
Dx 10x = Dx ex ln 10 = ex ln 10 ln 10 = 10x ln 10.

Dx 10u = (10u ln 10) du

the length of the water surface is x = 5y feet. A cross section of the water perpendicular to the width of

function has the intermediate value property on the interval [11, 12]. Because f (11) ≈ −214.95 and f (12) ≈

the iteration
x ←− x − x + tan x
1 + sec2 x of Newton’s method yields the successive approximations
x1 = 7.457596948, x2 = 6.180210620, x3 = 3.157913273, x4 = 1.571006986;
after many more iterations we arrive at the answer 2.028757838 of Problem 15. The diﬃculty is caused by the
fact that f (x) is generally a very large number, so the iteration of Newton’s method tends to alter the value of
x excessively. A little experimentation yields the fact that f (11.08) ≈ −0.736577 and f (11.09) ≈ 0.531158.

x2 = 11.08553841, and x3 = x2 . Answer: 11.0855.
C03S10.017: x − e−x = 0; [0, 1]: x0 = 0.5, x1 ≈ 0.5663, x2 ≈ 0.5671, x3 ≈ 0.5671.

C03S10.020: e−x − ln x = 0; [1, 2]: x0 = 1.5, x1 ≈ 1.2951, x2 ≈ 1.3097, x3 ≈ 1.3098 ≈ x4 .
C03S10.021: Let f (x) = x3 − a. Then the iteration of Newton’s method in Eq. (6) takes the form

Because 1 < 3 2 < 2, we begin with x0 = 1.5 and apply this formula with a = 2 to obtain x1 = 1.296296296,
x2 = 1.260932225, x3 = 1.259921861, and x4 = 1.259921050 = x5 . Answer: 1.25992.

x4 = 1.584893193, and x5 = 1.584893192 = x6 . Answer: 1.58489.
C03S10.023: We get x0 = 0.5, x1 = 0.4387912809, x2 = 0.4526329217, x3 = 0.4496493762, . . . ,
x14 = 0.4501836113 = x15 . The method of repeated substitution tends to converge much more slowly than
Newton’s method, has the advantage of not requiring that you compute a derivative or even that the functions
involved are diﬀerentiable, and has the disadvantage of more frequent failure than Newton’s method when
both are applicable (see Problems 24 and 25).
C03S10.024: Our results using the ﬁrst formula: x0 = 1.5, x1 = 1.257433430, x2 = 1.225755182,
x3 = 1.221432153, . . . , x10 = 1.220745085 = x11 . When we use the second formula, we obtain x1 = 4.0625,
x2 = 271.3789215, x3 = 5423829645, and x4 has 39 digits to the left of the decimal point. It frequently
requires some ingenuity to ﬁnd a suitable way to put the equation f (x) = 0 into the form x = G(x).
C03S10.025: Beginning with x0 = 0.5, the ﬁrst formula yields x0 = 0.5, x1 = −1, x2 = 2, x3 = 2.75,
x4 = 2.867768595, . . . , x12 = 2.879385242 = x13 . Wrong root! At least the method converged. If your
calculator or computer balks at computing the cube root of a negative number, then you can rewrite the
second formula in Problem 25 in the form
x = Sgn(3x2 − 1) · | 3x2 − 1 |1/3 .
The results, again with x0 = 0.5, are x1 = −0.629960525, x2 = 0.575444686, x3 = −0.187485243,
x4 = −0.963535808, . . . , x25 = 2.877296053, x26 = 2.877933902, . . . , and x62 = 2.879385240 = x63 .
Not only is convergence extremely slow, the method of repeated substitution again leads to the wrong root.
Finally, the given equation can also be written in the form
x= √ 1
,
3−x and in this case, again with x0 = 0.5, we obtain x1 = 0.632455532, x2 = 0.649906570, x3 = 0.652315106,
x4 = 0.652649632, . . . , and x12 = 0.652703645 = x13 .

x C03S10.027: Let f (x) = x5 + x − 1. Then f (x) is a polynomial, thus is continuous everywhere, and
thus has the intermediate value property on every interval. Also f (0) = −1 and f (1) = 1, so f (x) must
3 assume the intermediate value 0 somewhere in the interval [0, 1]. Thus the equation f (x) = 0 has at least
one solution. Next, f (x) = 5x4 + 1 is positive for all x, so f is an increasing function. Because f is
continuous, its graph can therefore cross the x-axis at most once, and so the equation f (x) = 0 has at
most one solution. Thus it has exactly one solution. Incidentally, Newton’s method yields the approximate
solution 0.75487766624669276. To four places, 0.7549.
C03S10.028: Let f (x) = x2 − cos x. The graph of f on [ −1, 1] shows that there are two solutions, one near
−0.8 and the other near 0.8. With x0 = 0.8, Newton’s method yields x1 = 0.824470434, x2 = 0.824132377,
and x3 = 0.824132312 = x4 . Because f (−x) = f (x), the other solution is −0.824132312. Answer: ± 0.8241.
C03S10.029: Let f (x) = x − 2 sin x. The graph of f on [ −2, 2] shows that there are exactly three solutions,
the largest of which is approximately x0 = 1.9. With Newton’s method we obtain x1 = 1.895505940, and
x2 = 1.895494267 = x3 . Because f (−x) = −f (x), the other two solutions are 0 and −1.895494267. Answer:
± 1.8955 and 0.
C03S10.030: Let f (x) = x + 5 cos x. The graph of f on the interval [ −5, 5] shows that there are exactly

4 Answers: −1.3064, 1.9774, and 3.8375. C03S10.031: Let f (x) = x7 − 3x3 + 1. Then f (x) is a polynomial, so f is continuous on every interval
of real numbers, including the intervals [ −2, −1], [0, 1], and [1, 2]. Also f (−2) = −103 < 0 < 3 = f (−1),
f (0) = 1 > 0 > −1 = f (1), and f (1) = −1 < 0 < 105 = f (2). Therefore the equation f (x) = 0 has one
solution in (−2, −1), another in (0, 1), and a third in (1, 2). (It has no other real solutions.) The graph of
f shows that the ﬁrst solution is near −1.4, the second is near 0.7, and the third is near 1.2. Then Newton’s
method yields

x < −1, x < 0 < cos x if −1 < x < 0, x is increasing on [0, 1] whereas cos x is decreasing there (and their
4 graphs cross in this interval as a consequence of the intermediate value property of continuous functions),
and x3 > 1 cos x for x > 1. The graph of f (x) = x3 − cos x crosses the x-axis near x0 = 0.9, and Newton’s
method yields x1 = 0.866579799, x2 = 0.865475218, and x3 = 0.865474033 = x4 . Answer: Approximately

7t2 + t4 + 2t3 + t2 = t2 + 2t + 1;
t4 + 2t3 + 7t2 − 2t − 1 = 0.
The graph of f (t) = t4 + 2t3 + 7t2 − 2t − 1 shows a solution of f (t) = 0 near x0 = 0.5. Newton’s method yields
x1 = 0.491071429, x2 = 0.490936940, and x3 = 0.490936909 = x4 . It now follows that x = 7.454684547,
that y = 15.184608052, that w = 13.016438772, that u = 4.286063469, and that v = 8.730375303. Answers:

C03S010.042: We let f (x) = 3 sin x − ln x. The graph of f on the interval [1, 22] does not make it
clear whether there are no solutions of f (x) = 0 between 20 and 22, or one solution, or two. But the
graph on [20, 21] makes it quite clear that there is no solution there: The maximum value of f (x) there is
approximately −0.005 and occurs close to x = 20.4. The iteration of Newton’s method,
xn+1 = xn − f (xn )
,
f (xn ) beginning with the initial values x0 = 7, x0 = 9, x0 = 13.5, and x0 = 14.5, yielded the following (rounded)

C03S010.043: Let f (θ) = (100 + θ) cos θ − 100. The iterative formula of Newton’s method is
θi+1 = θi −
7 f (θi )
f (θi ) (1) where, of course, f (θ) = cos θ − (100 + θ) sin θ. Beginning with θ0 = 1, iteration of the formula in (1) yields
0.4620438212, 0.2325523723, 0.1211226155, 0.0659741863, 0.0388772442, 0.0261688780, 0.0211747166, 0.0200587600, 0.0199968594, 0.0199966678, 0.0199966678, 0.0199966678. We take the last value of θi to be suﬃciently accurate. The corresponding radius of the asteriod is thus
approximately 1000/θ12 ≈ 50008.3319 ft, about 9.47 mi.
C03S010.044: The length of the circular arc is 2Rθ = 5281; the length of its chord is 2R sin θ = 5280

θ
5281
To solve for θ by means of Newton’s method, we let f (θ) = 5281 sin θ − 5280θ. The iterative formula of
Newton’s method is
θi+1 = θi − 5281 sin θ − 5280θ
.
5281 cos θ − 5280 (1) Beginning with the [poor] initial guess θ0 = 1, iteration of the formula in (1) yields these results:
0.655415, 0.434163, 0.289117, 0.193357, 0.130147, 0.0887267, 0.0621344, 0.0459270, 0.0373185, 0.0341721, 0.0337171, 0.0337078, 0.0337078, 0.0337078, 0.0337078. Hence the radius of the circular arc is
R≈ 5281
≈ 78335.1,
2θ15 and its height at its center is
x = R(1 − cos θ) ≈ 44.4985.
That is, the maximum height is about 44.5 feet! Surprising to almost everyone. 8 Chapter 3 Miscellaneous Problems

C03S0M.080: Current production per well: 200 (bbl/day). Number of new wells: x (x
per well: 200 − 5x. Total production:
T = T (x) = (20 + x)(200 − 5x), 0 0). Production 40. x Now T (x) = 4000 + 100x − 5x2 , so T (x) = 100 − 10x. T (x) = 0 when x = 10. T (0) = 4000, T (40) = 0,
and T (10) = 4500. So x = 10 maximizes T (x). Answer: Ten new wells should be drilled, thereby increasing
total production from 4000 bbl/day to 4500 bbl/day.
C03S0M.081: Let the circle be the one with equation x2 + y 2 = R2 and let the base of the triangle lie on
the x-axis; denote the opposite vertex of the triangle by (x, y ). The area of the triangle A = Ry is clearly
maximal when y is maximal; that is, when y = R. To solve this problem using calculus, let θ be the angle
of the triangle at (−R, 0). Because the triangle has a right angle at (x, y ), its two short sides are 2R cos θ
and 2R sin θ, so its area is
A(θ) = 2R2 sin θ cos θ = R2 sin 2θ, 0 θ π
.
2 Then A (θ) = 2R2 cos 2θ; A (θ) = 0 when cos 2θ = 0; because θ lies in the ﬁrst quadrant, θ = 1 π . Finally,

A(0) = 0 = A(π /2), but A(π /4) = R2 > 0. Hence the maximum possible area of such a triangle is R2 .
10 C03S0M.082: Let x be the length of the edges of each of the 20 small squares. The ﬁrst ﬁve boxes measure
210 − 2x by 336 − 2x by x. The total volume is then
V (x) = 5x(210 − 2x)(336 − 2x) + 8x3 , 0 105. x Thus V (x) = 28x3 − 5460x2 + 352800x, and so
V (x) = 84x2 − 10290x + 352800 = 84(x2 − 130x + 4200) = 84(x − 60)(x − 70).
So V (x) = 0 when x = 60 and when x = 70. But V (0) = 0, V (60) = 7,560,000, V (70) = 7,546,000, and
V (105) = 9,261,000. Answer: For maximal volume, make x as large as possible: 105 cm. This yields the
maximum volume, 9,261,000 cm3 . Note that it is attained by constructing one large cubical box and that
some material is wasted.

or if s = 0, there is only one sphere, with radius (3V /4π )1/3 and surface area (36π V 2 )1/3 . If r = s, then
there are two spheres of equal size, both with radius 1 (3V /π )1/3 and surface area (72π V 2 )1/3 . Therefore,

for maximum surface area, make two equal spheres. For minimum surface area, make only one sphere.
C03S0M.084: Let x be the length of the edge of the rectangle on the side of length 4 and y the length of

11 C03S0M.086: Let x denote the length of the two sides of the corral that are perpendicular to the wall.
There are two cases to consider.
Case 1: Part of the wall is used. Let y be the length of the side of the corral parallel to the wall. Then
y = 400 − 2x, and we are to maximize the area
A = xy = x(400 − 2x), 150 200. x Then A (x) = 400 − 4x; A (x) = 0 when x = 100, but that value of x is not in the domain of A. Note that
A(150) = 15000 and that A(200) = 0.
Case 2: All of the wall is used. Let y be the length of fence added to one end of the wall, so that the
side parallel to the wall has length 100 + y . Then 100 + 2y + 2x = 400, so y = 150 − x. We are to maximize
the area
A = x(100 + y ) = x(250 − x), 0 x 150. In this case A (x) = 0 when x = 125. And in this case A(150) = 15000, A(0) = 0, and A(125) = 15625.
Answer: The maximum area is 15625 ft2 ; to attain it, use all the existing wall and build a square corral.
C03S0M.087: First, R (x) = kM − 2kx; because k = 0, R (x) = 0 when x = M/2. Moreover, because
R(0) = 0 = R(M ) and R(M/2) > 0, the latter is the maximum value of R(x). Therefore the incidence of
the disease is the highest when half the susceptible individuals are infected.
C03S0M.088: The trapezoid is shown next. It has altitude h = L cos θ and the length of its longer base
is L + 2L sin θ, so its area is
A(θ) = L2 (1 + sin θ) cos θ, − π

.
2 Now dA/dθ = 0 when
1 − sin θ − 2 sin2 θ = 0; (2 sin θ − 1)(sin θ + 1) = 0;
the only solution√ θ = π /6 because sin θ cannot equal −1 in the range of A. Finally, A(π /2) = 0,
is
√
A(−π /6) = 1 L2 3, and A(π /6) = 3 L2 3. The latter maximizes A(θ), and the fourth side of the
4

trapezoid then has length 2L. h L θ L L C03S0M.089: Let x be the width of the base of the box, so that the base has length 2x; let y be the height
of the box. Then the volume of the box is V = 2x2 y , and for its total surface area to be 54 ft2 , we require
2x2 + 6xy = 54. Therefore the volume of the box is given by
12 V = V (x) = 2x2 27 − x2
3x = 2
(27x − x3 ),
3 √
3 3. 0<x √
Now V (x) = 0 when x2 = 9, so that x = 3. Also V (x) → 0 as x → 0+ and V 3 3 = 0, so V (3) = 36
(ft3 ) is the maximum possible volume of the box.

V (0) = 0 and V (R) = 0, so x = 3 R maximizes V . Finally, it is easy to ﬁnd that Vmax =

the largest fraction of the large cone that the small cone can occupy is 4/27. So V (x) = C03S0M.091: Let (x, y ) be the coordinates of the vertex of the trapezoid lying properly in the ﬁrst
quadrant and let θ be the angle that the radius of the circle to (x, y ) makes with the x-axis. The bases of
the trapezoid have lengths 4 and 4 cos θ and its altitude is 2 sin θ, so its area is
A(θ) = 1
(4 + 4 cos θ)(2 sin θ) = 4(1 + cos θ) sin θ,
2 0 θ π
.
2 Now
A (θ) = 4(cos θ + cos2 θ − sin2 θ)
= 4(2 cos2 θ + cos θ − 1) = 4(2 cos θ − 1)(cos θ + 1).
The only zero of A in its domain occurs at θ = π /3. At the endpoints, we have A(0) = 0 and A(π /2) = 4.
√
But A(π /3) = 3 3 ≈ 5.196, so the latter is the maximum possible area of such a trapezoid.
C03S0M.092: The square of the length of P Q is a function of x, G(x) = (x − x0 )2 + (y − y0 )2 , which we

Case 1: A = 0 and B = 0. Then L has equation y = −C/B and thus is a horizontal line. So the shortest
segment from P (x0 , y0 ) to Q on L is a vertical segment that therefore meets L in the point Q(x0 , −C/B ).

in the form

B so L has slope − A/B . Thus the slope of P Q is B/A (by the result in Problem 70), and therefore P Q lies

A Consequently A(v − y0 ) = B (u − x0 ). But Q(u, v ) also lies on L, and so Au + Bv = −C . Thus we have the
simultaneous equations
Au + Bv = −C ; Bu − Av = Bx0 − Ay0 .

Because R(m) = 0 and R(m) → 0 as m → + ∞, the function R has a global maximum; because R is

Because r = 2, this leads to the equation p(h) = 3h3 − 18h2 + 32 = 0. This equation has at most three [real]
solutions because p(h) is a polynomial of degree 3, and it turns out to have exactly three solutions because
p(−2) = −64, p(−1) = 11, p(2) = −16, and p(6) = 32. Newton’s method yields the three approximate
solutions h = −1.215825766, h = 1.547852572, and h = 5.667973193. Only one is plausible, so the answer is

f (3) = 121. So there are at least three, and at most ﬁve, real solutions. Newton’s method produces three
real solutions, speciﬁcally r1 = −2.722493355, r2 = 0.8012614801, and r3 = 2.309976541. If one divides
the polynomial f (x) by (x − r1 )(x − r2 )(x − r3 ), one obtains the quotient polynomial x2 + (0.38874466)x +
3.770552031, which has no real roots—the quadratic formula yields the two complex roots −0.194372333 ±
(1.932038153)i. Consequently we have found all three real solutions.

dy/dt = 0 when 25 = 10 y , so that y = 6.25 (ft) would seem to be the maximum height ever attained by the
water. What actually happens is that the water level rises more and more slowly as time passes, approaching
the limiting height of 6.25 ft as a right-hand limit, but never reaching it. This is not obvious; you must
solve the diﬀerential equation in (1) (use the substitution y = u2 ) and analyze the solution to establish this
conclusion.

the discriminant is positive: (x0 )2 − y0 > 0, and this establishes the conclusion in part (b). There are no
real solutions when (x0 )2 − y0 < 0, and this establishes the conclusion in part (c). What if (x0 )2 − y0 = 0? C03S0M.125: The straight line through P (x0 , y0 ) and Q(a, a2 ) has slope 21 Section 4.2

so ∆C ≈ 2π ∆r. With r = 10 and ∆r = 0.5, we obtain ∆C ≈ 2π (0.5) = π ≈ 3.1416. This happens to be the
exact value as well (because C is a linear function of r).
C04S02.041: If the square has edge length x and area A, then A = x2 . Therefore dA = 2x dx, and so
∆A ≈ 2x ∆x. With x = 10 and ∆x = −0.2, we obtain ∆A ≈ 2 · 10 · (−0.2) = −4. So the area of the square
decreases by 4 in.2 .
C04S02.042: The relationship between the surface area A and the radius r of the sphere is A = 4π r2 , and
hence dA = 8π r dr. Thus ∆A ≈ 8π r ∆r. With r = 5 and ∆r = 0.2 we obtain ∆A ≈ 8π (5)(0.2) = 8π ≈

C04S02.043: A [right circular] cylinder of base radius r and height h has volume V = π r2 h, and hence
dV = π r2 dh + 2π rh dr. Therefore V ≈ π r2 ∆h + 2π rh ∆r. With r = h = 15 and ∆r = ∆h = −0.3 we ﬁnd
that ∆V ≈ (225π )(−0.3) + (450π )(−0.3) = 405 π , so the volume of the cylinder decreases by approximately

C04S02.044: With volume V , height h, and radius r, we have V = 1 π r2 h. Because r = 14 is constant,

we may think of V as a function of r alone, so that

π (196)(0.1) ≈ 20.5251.

C04S02.045: Because θ = 45◦ , the range R of the shell is a function of its initial velocity v alone, and

R = 16 v 2 . Hence dR = 1 v dv . With v = 80 and dv = 1, we ﬁnd that dR = 1 · 80 = 10, so the range is

increased by approximately 10 ft.
C04S02.046: Because v is constant, R is a function of the angle of inclination θ alone, and hence
dR = 12
v (cos 2θ) dθ.

C04S02.047: Technically, if W = RI 2 , then dW = I 2 dR + 2IR dI . But in this problem, R remains
constant, so that dR = 0 and hence dW = 2IR dI . We take R = 10, I = 3, and dI = 0.1, and ﬁnd that
dW = 6. So the wattage increases by approximately 6 watts.
C04S02.048: With circumference C and radius r, we have C = 2π r. Therefore, given ∆r = +10,
∆C = 2π ∆r ≈ 20π (feet). Thus the wire should be lengthened by approximately 63 feet.

4π (10)2 inches. Thus the radius must be measured with error not exceeding 0.0008 inches.
C04S02.051: With surface area S and radius r, we have S = 2π r2 (half the surface area of a sphere of
radius r), so that dS = 4π r dr ≈ 4π (100)(0.01) = 4π . That is, ∆S ≈ 12.57 square meters.

[0.5, 1.5], and it was clear that the interval I = (0.58, 1.42) would be an adequate answer to this problem.
We then used Newton’s nethod to ﬁnd a “better” interval, which turns out to be I = (0.5528, 1.4472).

open subinterval of this interval that contains a = 2 is also a correct answer.

to ﬁnd “better” endpoints and found (6.4023, 9.7976). C04S02.057: We plotted f (x) = sin x and its linear approximation L(x) = x on the interval [ −2.8, 2.8]

endpoints and found that (−0.6746, 0.6745) would suﬃce.
C04S02.058: Graphically we ﬁnd that |f (x) − (x + 1)| < 0.05 provided that −0.3339 < x < 0.3004, so

C04S02.060: We plotted f (x) = tan x and its linear approximation L(x) = 1 (2 − π + 4x) on the interval

[0.7, 0.9], from which it was clear that the interval (0.7, 0.85) would suﬃce. We then used Newton’s method

x < −1, −1 < x < 0, 0 < x < 1, and 1 < x. Because f (−2) = −24, f (−0.5) = 1.5, f (0.5) = −1.5, and
f (2) = 24, we may conclude that f is increasing if −1 < x < 0 or if x > 1, decreasing for x < −1 and for

(x + 1)2 C04S03.019: f (x) = 12x3 + 12x2 − 24x = 12x(x + 2)(x − 1), so the only points where f (x) can change
sign are −2, 0, and 1. If 0 < x < 1 then 12x > 0, x + 2 > 0, and x − 1 < 0, and therefore f (x) < 0 if
0 < x < 1. Therefore f is decreasing on the interval (0, 1). A similar analysis shows that f is also decreasing

To ﬁnd the numbers c satisfying the conclusion of Rolle’s theorem, we solve f (c) = 0 to ﬁnd that c = 1 is
the only such number.
C04S03.026: f (−3) = 81 − 81 = 0 = f (3), f is continuous everywhere, and f (x) = 18x − 4x3 exists for all
x, including all x in the interval (−3, 3). Thus f satisﬁes the hypotheses of Rolle’s theorem. To ﬁnd what

value or values c might assume, we solve the equation f (x) = 0 to obtain the three values c = 0, c = 3 2,

and c = − 3 2. All three of these numbers lie in the interval (−3, 3), so these are the three possible values

for the number c whose existence is guaranteed by Rolle’s theorem.
C04S03.027: Given: f (x) = 2 sin x cos x on the interval I = [0, π ]. Then
f (x) = 2 cos2 x − 2 sin2 x = 2 cos 2x,
and it is clear that all the hypotheses of Rolle’s theorem are satisﬁed by f on the interval I . Also f (x) = 0
when 2x = π /2 and when 2x = 3π /2, so the numbers whose existence is guaranteed by Rolle’s theorem are
c = π /4 and c = 3π /4.

3x1/3 f (x) exists for all x in (0, 5) and f is continuous on the interval 0 x 5 (the only point that might cause
trouble is x = 0, but the limit of f and its value there are the same). Because f (0) = 0 = f (5), there is a
solution c of f (x) = 0 in (0, 5), and clearly c = 2.
C04S03.029: On the interval (−1, 0), f (x) = 1; on the interval (0, 1), we have f (x) = −1. Because f is
not diﬀerentiable at x = 0, it does not satisfy the hypotheses of Rolle’s theorem, so there is no guarantee
that the equation f (x) = 0 has a solution—and, indeed, it has no solution in (−1, 1).
C04S03.030: Because
f (x) = 2
3(2 − x)1/3 for x = 2, f (x) can never be zero, so the conclusion of Rolle’s theorem does not hold here. The reason is that f is not
diﬀerentiable at every point of the interval 1 x 3; speciﬁcally, f (x) is undeﬁned at x = 2.
C04S03.031: If f (x) = xex , then f (1) = e = 0, so f does not satisfy the hypotheses of Rolle’s theorem on
[0, 1]. Because f (x) = (x + 1)ex is zero only when x = −1, f also does not satisfy the conclusion of Rolle’s
theorem there.
5 C04S03.032: It is clear that f satisﬁes the hypotheses of the mean value theorem, because every polynomial
is continuous and diﬀerentiable everywhere. To ﬁnd c, we solve

f (c) = C04S03.033: Here, f (x) = 6x + 6; f (−2) = −5 and f (1) = 4. So we are to solve the equation

It follows that c = − .

27 . Note that c does lie in the interval (1, 2). C04S03.036: Because f (x) can be expressed as a rational function with denominator never zero if x = 0,
it is both continuous and diﬀerentiable on (2, 3). Next,

yields the information that c2 = 6, and thus that c = + 6 (not − 6; it’s not in the interval (2, 3)).
f (c) = 1 − C04S03.037: First, f (x) = |x − 2| is not diﬀerentiable at x = 2, so does not satisfy the hypotheses of the
mean value theorem on the given interval 1 x 4. Wherever f (x) is deﬁned, its value is 1 or −1, but

3 is never a value of f (x). So f satisﬁes neither the hypotheses nor the conclusion of the mean value theorem

C04S03.038: Because f is not diﬀerentiable at x = 1, the hypotheses of the mean value theorem do not
hold. The only values of f (x) are 1 (for x > 1) and −1 (for x < 1). Neither of these is equal to the everage
slope of f on the interval 0 x 3:

3 so the conclusion of the mean value theorem also fails to hold. C04S03.039: The greatest integer function is continuous at x if and only if x is not an integer. Consequently
all the hypotheses of the mean value theorem fail here: f is discontinuous at −1, 0, and 1, and also f (0)
does not exist because (for one reason) f is not continuous at x = 0. Finally, the average slope of the graph
of f is 1, but f (x) = 0 wherever it is deﬁned. Thus the conclusion of the mean value theorem also fails to
hold.
C04S03.040: The function f (x) = 3x2/3 is continuous everywhere, but its derivative f (x) = 2x−1/3 does
not exist at x = 0. Because f (x) does not exist for all x in (−1, 1), an essential hypothesis of the mean
value theorem is not satisﬁed. Moreover, f (x) is never zero (the average slope of the graph of f on the
interval −1 x 1), so the conclusion of the mean value theorem also fails to hold.
C04S03.041: Let f (x) = x5 + 2x − 3. Then f (x) = 5x4 + 2, so f (x) > 0 for all x. This implies that f
is an increasing continuous function, and therefore f (x) can have at most one zero in any interval. To show
that f has at least one zero in the interval 0 x 1, it is suﬃcient to notice that f (1) = 0. Therefore the
equation f (x) = 0 has exactly one solution in [0, 1].
C04S03.042: Let f (x) = e−x − x + 1. Then f (x) = −e−x − 1, so f (x) is decreasing and continuous on the
interval [1, 2]. Therefore the equation f (x) = 0 has at most one solution in that interval. But f (1) = e−1 > 0
and f (2) = e−2 − 1 < 0. Because f is continuous, it has the intermediate value property, so f (x) has at least
one zero in [1, 2]. Therefore the equation f (x) = 0 has exactly one solution there. That is, e−x = x − 1 for
exactly one number x in [1, 2].
C04S03.043: Let f (x) = −3+ x ln x. Note that 1 < ln 2 < 1 because ln 2 ≈ 0.693147. Hence 1 < 2 ln 2 < 2,
2
so f (2) < 0. Also ln 4 = 2 ln 2, so 1 < ln 4 < 2, and hence 4 < 4 ln 4 < 8. Therefore f (4) > 0. Because
f is diﬀerentiable on [2, 4], it is continuous there. Hence, by the intermediate value property of continuous
functions, f (c) = 0 for some number c in [2, 4]. Thus c ln c = 3, and therefore the equation x ln x = 3 as
at least one solution in [2, 4].
Next, f (x) = 1 + ln x is positive on [2, 4] (use inequalities similar to those in the previous paragraph if
this is not perfectly clear), and therefore f is increasing on that interval. Hence the equation f (x) = 0 has
at most one solution in [2, 4]. In conclusion, the equation x ln x = 3 has exactly one solution in [2, 4]. (By
Newton’s method, the solution is approximately 2.85739078.)
C04S03.044: Let f (x) = sin x − 3x + 1. Because f (x) = −3 + cos x is always negative, the graph of f is
decreasing on every interval of real numbers, and in particular is decreasing on [ −1, 1]. Hence the equation
f (x) = 0 can have at most one solution in that interval. Moreover, f (−1) ≈ 3.16 > 0 and f (1) ≈ −1.16 < 0.
Because f is continuous on [ −1, 1], the intermediate value property of continuous functions guarantees that
the equation f (x) = 0 has at least one solution in [ −1, 1]. So the equation f (x) = 0 has exactly one solution
there.
C04S03.045: The car traveled 35 miles in 18 minutes, which is an average speed of 250 ≈ 83.33 miles per
3
hour. By the mean value theorem, the car must have been traveling over 83 miles per hour at some time
between 3:00 p.m. and 3:18 p.m.
C04S03.046: A change of 15 miles per hour in 10 minutes is an average change of 1.5 miles per hour
per minute, which is an average change of 90 miles per hour per hour. By the mean value theorem, the
7 instantaneous rate of change of velocity must have been exactly 90 miles per hour per hour at some time in
the given 10-minute interval.
C04S03.047: Let f (t) be the distance that the ﬁrst car has traveled from point A on its way to point B
at time t, with t measured in hours and with t = 0 corresponding to 9:00 a.m. (so that t = 1 corresponds to
10:00 a.m.). Let g (t) be the corresponding function for the second car. Let h(t) = f (t) − g (t). We make the
very plausible assumption that the functions f and g are diﬀerentiable on (0, 1) and continuous on [0, 1],
so h has the same properties. In addition, h(0) = f (0) − g (0) = 0 and h(1) = 0 as well. By Rolle’s theorem,
h (c) = 0 for some c in (0, 1). But this implies that f (c) = g (c). That is, the velocity of the ﬁrst car is
exactly the same as that of the second car at time t = c.
C04S03.048: Because f (0) does not exist, the function f (x) = x2/3 does not satisfy the hypotheses of the
mean value theorem on the given interval. But consider the equation

C04S03.050: Proof: Suppose that f (x) is the constant K on the interval a x b. Let g (x) = Kx + f (a) − Ka.
Then the graph of g is a straight line, and g (x) = K for all x. Consequently f and g diﬀer by a constant
on the interval a x b. But g (a) = Ka + f (a) − Ka = f (a), so g (x) = f (x) for all x in that interval.
Therefore the graph of f is a straight line.
C04S03.051: Proof: Suppose that f (x) is a polynomial of degree n − 1 on the interval I = [ a, b ]. Then
f (x) has the form
f (x) = an−1 xn−1 + an−2 xn−2 + . . . + a2 x2 + a1 x + a0
where an−1 = 0. Note that f (x) is the derivative of the function

8 By Corollary 2, f (x) and g (x) can diﬀer only by a constant, and this is suﬃcient to establish that f (x) must
also be a polynomial, and one of degree n because the coeﬃcient of xn in f (x) is the same as the coeﬃcient
of xn in g (x), and that coeﬃcient is nonzero.
C04S03.052: Suppose that f (x) = 0 for x = x1 , x2 , . . . , xk in the interval [ a, b ]. By Rolle’s theorem,
f (x) = 0 for some c1 in (x1 , x2 ), some c2 in (x2 , x3 ), . . . , and some ck−1 in (xk−1 , xk ). The numbers
c1 , c2 , . . . , ck−1 are distinct because they lie in nonoverlapping intervals, and this proves the desired result.
C04S03.053: First note that f (x) = 1 x−1/2 , and that the hypotheses of the mean value theorem are all

f (x) > 0 for all x except that f (0) = 0, so f is increasing on the set of all real numbers. This information
together with the fact that f (continuous) has the intermediate value property establishes that the equation
f (x) = 0 has exactly one [real] solution (approximately −0.79130272).
C04S03.055: Let f (x) = (tan x)2 and let g (x) = (sec x)2 . Then
f (x) = 2(tan x)(sec2 x) and g (x) = 2(sec x)(sec x tan x) = f (x) on (−π /2, π /2). Therefore there exists a constant C such that f (x) = g (x) + C for all x in (−π /2, π /2). Finally, f (0) = 0
and g (0) = 1, so C = f (0) − g (0) = −1.
C04S03.056: The mean value theorem does not apply here because f (0) does not exist.
C04S03.057: The average slope of the graph of f on the given interval [ −1, 2] is
f (2) − f (−1)

2 − (−1)

and f satisﬁes the hypotheses of the mean value theorem there. Therefore f (c) = 2 for some number c,
−1 < c < 2. This implies that the tangent line to the graph of f at the point (c, f (c)) has slope 2 and is
therefore parallel to the line with equation y = 2x because the latter line also has slope 2.
9 C04S03.058: To show that the graph of f (x) = x4 − x3 + 7x2 + 3x − 11 has a horizontal tangent line,
we must show that its derivative f (x) = 4x3 − 3x2 + 14x + 3 has the value zero at some number c. Now
f (x) is a polynomial, thus is continuous everywhere, and so has the intermediate value property; moreover,
f (−1) = −18 and f (0) = 3, so f (c) = 0 for some number c in (−1, 0). (The value of c is approximately
−0.203058.)

x . Because cos(1/x) oscillates between +1 and −1 near x = 0 and 2x sin(1/x) is near zero for x close to zero, it
follows that every interval about x = 0 contains subintervals on which g (x) > 0 and subintervals on which
g (x) < 0. They are not clearly visible near x = 0 in the graph of y = g (x) (shown next) because they are
very short intervals.

you must prove. In this case, to show that f is increasing on the unbounded open interval (2, + ∞), we need
to show that if 2 < x1 < x2 , then f (x1 ) < f (x2 ). Suppose that 2 < x1 < x2 . Let
a= 2 + x1
2 and b = 1 + x2 . Then [ a, b ] is a closed interval, and by hypothesis f is increasing there. Moreover, a < x1 (because a is the
midpoint of the interval (2, x1 )), x1 < x2 , and x2 < b. So x1 and x2 are two numbers in [ a, b ] for which
10 x1 < x2 . Therefore f (x1 ) < f (x2 ). This is what we have agreed that it means for f to be increasing on the
unbounded interval (2, + ∞). This concludes the proof.

By the result in Problem 61, j (x) > 0 for all x > 0. Also, if x > 0, then

C04S03.064: (a) Let h(x) = e−x − (1 − x) = e−x + x − 1 for x 0. Then h (x) = −e−x + 1 > 0 if x > 0
because e−x < 1 if x > 0. Hence h(x) is increasing for x > 0. But h(0) = 0 and h is continuous for all
x 0, so h(x) > 0 if x > 0. That is, e−x > p1 (x) = 1 − x if x > 0.

which was shown positive for x > 0 in part (a). Because j (0) = 0 and j is continuous for x
follows that j (x) > 0 if x > 0. That is,
e−x < p2 (x) = 1 − x +

With the aid of a calculator (round up on the left, down on the right) we ﬁnd thereby that

Therefore e ≈ 2.718 to three places. With the aid of a powerful computer and a symbolic algebra program

C04S04.001: f (x) = 2x − 4; x = 2 is the only critical point. Because f (x) > 0 for x > 2 and f (x) < 0

x > 2 then f (x) is positive, but f (x) < 0 for 0 < x < 2. So f (0) = 5 is a local maximum and f (2) = 1 is a

and f (1) = 3 is a local minimum value. C04S04.005: f (x) = 3x2 − 6x + 3 = 3(x − 1)2 , so x = 1 is the only critical point of f . f (x) > 0 if x = 1,

x < −3 or if x > 2 then f (x) > 0, but f (x) < 0 on the interval (−3, 2). So f (−3) = 98 is a local maximum
value of f (x) and f (2) = −27 is a local minimum value. C04S04.007: f (x) = −6(x − 5)(x + 2); f (x) < 0 if x < −2 and if x > 5, but f (x) > 0 for −2 < x < 5.
Hence f (−2) = −58 is a local minimum value of f and f (5) = 285 is a local maximum value. The graph of

for x > 1 and on the interval (−1, 0). Consequently, f (−1) = −1 = f (1) is the global minimum value of
f (x) and f (0) = 0 is a local maximum value. Note that the [unique] global minimum value occurs at two

and on (0, 1). Therefore f (0) = 0 is not an extremum of f (x), but f (−1) = 2 is a local maximum value and
f (1) = −2 is a local minimum value. The graph of y = f (x) is shown next.

note that f is not deﬁned at x = 0. If x2 > 9 then f (x) > 0, so f is increasing if x > 3 and if x < −3.
If x2 < 9 then f (x) < 0, so f is decreasing on (−3, 0) and on (0, 3). Therefore f (−3) = −6 is a local
maximum value and f (3) = 6 is a local minimum value for f (x). The graph of y = f (x) is next.

x2 Because x2 + x + 1 > 0 for all x, the only critical point is x = 1; note that f is not deﬁned at x = 0. Also
f (x) has the sign of x − 1, so f (x) > 0 for x > 1 and f (x) < 0 for 0 < x < 1 and for x < 0. Consequently
f (1) = 3 is a local minimum value of f (x). It is not a global minimum because f (x) → −∞ as x → 0− . The

and f (8) ≈ −0.37058 < 0, the graph of f is decreasing for x < 0 and for x > 6, increasing on (0, 6). Because
f (x) 0 for all x and f (x) = 0 only if x = 0, there is a global minimum at (0, 0). Because f (x) → + ∞ as

f (0) = 4.8 > 0, and f (7) ≈ −0.54251 < 0, the graph of f is decreasing if x < −4 and if x > 6, increasing
on (−4, 6). Because f (x) 0 for all x and f (x) = 0 only if x = −4, there is a global minimum at (−4, 0).
Because f (x) → + ∞ as x → −∞, the maximum where x = 6 is local but not global. The graph of y = f (x)

x2 So the only critical point occurs where x = e2 ≈ 7.38906. Because f (3) ≈ −0.10015 < 0 and f (12) ≈
0.00337 > 0, the graph of f is decreasing if 0 < x < e2 and increasing if x > e2 . Hence there is a global
extremum where x = e2 .
C04S04.017: f (x) = 2 sin x cos x; f (x) = 0 when x is any integral multiple of π /2. In (0, 3), f (x) = 0
when x = π /2. Because f (x) > 0 if 0 < x < π /2 and f (x) < 0 if π /2 < x < 3, f (x) has the global
maximum value f (π /2) = 1.
C04S04.018: f (x) = −2 sin x cos x; f (x) = 0 when x = 0 and when x = π /2. f is increasing on (−1, 0)
and on (π /2, 3), whereas f is decreasing on (0, π /2). So f has a global maximum at (0, 1) and a global
minimum at (π /2, 0).
C04S04.019: f (x) = 3 sin2 x cos x; f (x) = 0 when x = −π /2, 0, or π /2. f is decreasing on (−3, −π /2)
and on (π /2, 3), but increasing on (−π /2, π /2). So f has a global minimum at (−π /2, −1) and a global
maximum at (π /2, 1); there is no extremum at the critical point (0, 0).
C04S04.020: f (x) = −4 cos3 x sin x vanishes at π /2 and at π . f is decreasing on (0, π /2) and on (π , 4),
but increasing on (π /2, π ). Hence there is a global minimum at (π /2 , 0) and a global maximum at (π , 1).
C04S04.021: f (x) = x sin x; f (x) = 0 at −π , 0, and π . f (x) > 0 on (−π , π ), f (x) < 0 on (−5, −π ) and
on (π , 5). So f has a global maximum at (π , π ) and a global minimum at (−π , −π ). Note that the critical
point (0, 0) is not an extremum.
C04S04.022: Given: f (x) = cos x + x sin x on I = (−5, 5). First, f (x) = x cos x, so f (x) = 0 (for x in
I ) when
5 x = 0, π
x=± ,
2 x=± 3π
.
2 Hence f (x) < 0 on (−5, −3π /2), (−π /2, 0), and (π /2, 3π /2); f (x) > 0 on (−3π /2, −π /2), (0, π /2), and
on (3π /2, 5). Therefore there are global minima at (−3π /2, −3π /2) and (3π /2, −3π /2), global maxima at
(−π /2, π /2) and (π /2, π /2), and a local minimum at (0, 1). The global minima are global rather than local
because f (±5) ≈ −4.510959.
C04S04.023: If
f (x) = ln x

x2 then f (x) = 1 − 2 ln x
.
x3 So f (x) = 0 when ln x = 1 ; that is, x = e1/2 . Because f (x) < 0 if 0 < x < e1/2 and f (x) > 0 when

x > e1/2 , the critical point at x = e1/2 is a global maximum. The graph of y = f (x) is next.

(1 + x)2 The only critical point, which occurs where f (x) = 0, is (e − 1, 1/e). Because f (1) ≈ 0.07671 > 0 and
f (2) ≈ −0.01096 < 0, there is a global maximum at this critical point and there are no other extrema.
C04S04.025: If f (x) = ex sin x, then f (x) = ex (cos x + sin x). Hence f (x) = 0 in (−3, 3) when
tan x = −1, thus at x = a = −π /4 and at x = b = 3π /4. Because f (x) < 0 if −3 < x < a and if b < x < 3,
the graph of f is decreasing on these intervals; it is increasing on (a, b). Inspection of the values of f (x) near
−3 and near 3 shows that f (x) has a global minimum value at x = a and a global maximum value at x = b.
C04S04.026: If f (x) = x3 exp(−x − x2 ), then f (x) = x2 (1 − x)(3+2x) exp(−x − x2 ). Hence f (x) = 0 when
x = − 3 , when x = 0, and when x = 1. The corresponding values of f (x) are − 27 e−3/4 , 0, and e−2 . We
2

note that f (−2) ≈ −1.62402 < 0, f (−1) = 2 > 0, f (0.5) ≈ 0.23618 > 0, and that f (1.5) ≈ −15875 < 0.
Hence the graph of f is decreasing on (−3, −1.5), increasing on (−1.5, 1), and decreasing on (1, 3). Because
f (x) is near zero near the endpoints of its domain, there is a global minimum where x = −1.5 and a global
maximum where x = 1. The point (0, 0) is not an extremum.
C04S04.027: Let x be the smaller of the two numbers; then the other is x + 20 and their product is
f (x) = x2 + 20x. Consequently f (x) = 2x + 20, so x = −10 is the only critical point of f . The graph of
f is decreasing for x < −10 and increasing for x > −10. Therefore (−10, −100) is the lowest point on the
graph of f . Answer: The two numbers are −10 and 10.
6 C04S04.028: We assume that the length turned upward is the same on each side—call it y . If the width
of the gutter is x, then we have the constraint xy = 18, and we are to minimize the width x + 2y of the
strip. Its width is given by the function
f (x) = x + 36
,
x x > 0, for which
f (x) = 1 − 36
.
x2 The only critical point in the domain of f is x = 6, and if 0 < x < 6 then f (x) < 0, whereas f (x) > 0 for
x > 6. Thus x = 6 yields the global minimum value f (6) = 12 of the function f . Answer: The minimum
possible width of the strip is 12 inches.
C04S04.029: Let us minimize
g (x) = (x − 3)2 + (3 − 2x − 2)2 = (x − 3)2 + (1 − 2x)2 ,
the square of the distance from (x, y ) on the line 2x + y = 3 to the point (3, 2). We have
g (x) = 2(x − 3) − 4(1 − 2x) = 10x − 10,
so x = 1 is the only critical point of g (x). If x > 1 then g (x) > 0, but g (x) < 0 for x < 1. Thus x = 1
minimizes g (x), and so the point on the line 2x + y = 3 closest to the point (3, 2) is (1, 1). As an independent
check, note that the slope of the line segment joining (3, 2) and (1, 1) is 1 , whereas the slope of the line
2
2x + y = 3 is −2, so the segment and the line are perpendicular; see Miscellaneous Problem 70 of Chapter 3.
C04S04.030: Base of box: x wide, 2x long. Height: y . Then the box has volume 2x2 y = 576, so
y = 288x−2 . Its total surface area is A = 4x2 + 6xy , so we minimize
A = A(x) = 4x2 + 1728

x x > 0. Now
A (x) = 8x − 1728

x2 so the only critical point of A(x) occurs when 8x3 = 1728; that is, when x = 6. It is easy to verify that
A (x) < 0 for 0 < x < 6 and A (x) > 0 for x > 6. Therefore A(6) is the global minimum value of A(x). Also,
when x = 6 we have y = 8. Answer: The dimensions of the box of minimal surface area are 6 inches wide
by 12 inches long by 8 inches high.
C04S04.031: Base of box: x wide, 2x long. Height: y . Then the box has volume 2x2 y = 972, so
y = 486x−2 . Its total surface area is A = 2x2 + 6xy , so we minimize
A = A(x) = 2x2 + 2916

x Now
A (x) = 4x −

x2 x > 0. so the only critical point of A(x) occurs when 4x3 = 2916; that is, when x = 9. It is easy to verify that
A (x) < 0 for 0 < x < 9 and that A (x) > 0 for x > 9. Therefore A(9) is the global minimum value of A(x).
Answer: The dimensions of the box are 9 inches wide, 18 inches long, and 6 inches high.
C04S04.032: If the radius of the base of the pot is r and its height is h (inches), then we are to minimize
the total surface area A given the constraint π r2 h = 125. Thus h = 125/(π r2 ), and so
A = π r2 + 2π rh = A(r) = π r2 + 250
,
r r > 0. Now
A (r) = 2π r − 250
;
r2 √
A (r) = 0 when r3 = 125/π , so that r = 5/ 3 π . The latter point is the only value of r at which A (r) can
change sign (for r > 0), and it is easy to see that A (r) is positive when r is large positive, whereas A (r)
is negative when r is near zero. Therefore we have located the global minimum of A(r), and it occurs when
√
√
the pot has radius r = 5/ 3 π inches and height h = 5/ 3 π inches. Thus the pot will have its radius equal to
its height, each approximately 3.414 inches.
C04S04.033: Let r denote the radius of the pot and h its height. We are given the constraint π r2 h = 250,
so h = 250/(π r2 ). Now the bottom of the pot has area π r2 , and thus costs 4π r2 cents. The curved side of
the pot has area 2π rh, and thus costs 4π rh cents. So the total cost of the pot is
C = 4π r2 + 4π rh; thus C = C (r) = 4π r2 + 1000
,
r r > 0. Now
C (r) = 8π r − 1000
;
r2 √
C (r) = 0 when 8π r3 = 1000, so that r = 5/ 3 π . It is clear that this is the only (positive) value of r at which
C (r) can change sign, and that C (r) < 0 for r positive and near zero, but C (r) > 0 for r large positive.
√
Therefore we have found the value of r that minimizes C (r). The corresponding value of h is 10/ 3 π , so the
pot of minimal cost has height equal to its diameter, each approximately 6.828 centimeters.
C04S04.034: If (x, y ) = (x, 4 − x2 ) is a point on the parabola y = 4 − x2 , then the square of its distance
from the point (3, 4) is
h(x) = (x − 3)2 + (4 − x2 − 4)2 = (x − 3)2 + x4 .
We minimize the distance by minimizing its square:
h (x) = 2(x − 3) + 4x3 ;
h (x) = 0 when 2x3 + x − 3 = 0. It is clear that h (1) = 0, so x − 1 is a factor of h (x); h (x) = 0 is equivalent
to (x − 1)(2x2 + 2x + 3) = 0. The quadratic factor in the last equation is always positive, so x = 1 is the
only critical point of h(x). Also h (x) < 0 if x < 1, whereas h (x) > 0 for x > 1, so x = 1 yields the global
minimum value h(1) = 5 for h(x). When x = 1 we have y = 3, so the point on the parabola y = 4 − x2

C04S04.035: If the sides of the rectangle are x and y , then xy = 100, so that y =

x x > 0. Then
P (x) = 2 − 200

x2 P (x) = 0 when x = 10 (−10 is not in the domain of P (x)). Now P (x) < 0 on (0, 10) and P (x) > 0 for
x > 10, and so x = 10 minimizes P (x). A little thought about the behavior of P (x) for x near zero and for
x large makes it clear that we have found the global minimum value for P : P (10) = 40. When x = 10, also
y = 10, so the rectangle of minimal perimeter is indeed a square.
C04S04.036: Let x denote the length of each side of the square base of the solid and let y denote its

The derivative is zero when 4x3 = 4000; that is, when x = 10. Also A(x) is decreasing on (0, 10) and
increasing for x > 10. So x = 10 yields the global minimum value of A(x). In this case, y = 10 as well, so
the solid is indeed a cube.
C04S04.037: Let the square base of the box have edge length x and let its height be y , so that its total
volume is x2 y = 62.5 and the surface area of this box-without-top will be A = x2 + 4xy . So
A = A(x) = x2 + 250

x x > 0. Now
A (x) = 2x − 250

x2 so A (x) = 0 when x3 = 125: x = 5. In this case, y = 2.5. Also A (x) < 0 if 0 < x < 5 and A (x) > 0 if
x > 5, so we have found the global minimum for A(x). Answer: Square base of edge length 5 inches, height
2.5 inches.
C04S04.038: Let r denote the radius of the can and h its height (in centimeters). We are to minimize its
total surface area A = 2π r2 + 2π rh given the constraint π r2 h = V = 16π . First we note that h = V /(π r2 ),
so we minimize
A = A(r) = 2π r2 + 2V

A (r) = 4π r −

r2 r > 0. A (r) = 0 when 4π r3 = 2V = 32π —that is, when r = 2. Now A(r) is decreasing on (0, 2) and increasing for
r > 2, so the global minimum of A(r) occurs when r = 2, for which h = 4.
C04S04.039: Let x denote the radius and y the height of the cylinder (in inches). Then its cost (in cents)
is C = 8π x2 + 4π xy , and we also have the constraint π x2 y = 100. So
C = C (x) = 8π x2 + 400

x x > 0. Now dC/dx = 16π x − 400/(x2 ); dC/dx = 0 when x = (25/π )1/3 (about 1.9965 inches) and consequently,
when y = (1600/π )1/3 (about 7.9859 inches). Because C (x) < 0 if x3 < 25/π and C (x) > 0 if x3 > 25/π ,
we have indeed found the dimensions that minimize the total cost of the can. For simplicity, note that y = 4x
at minimum: The height of the can is twice its diameter.
C04S04.040: If the print width is x and its height is y (in inches), then the page area is A = (x + 2)(y + 4).
We are to minimize A given xy = 30. Because y = 30/x,

C04S04.041: Let (x, y ) = (x, x2 ) denote an arbitrary point on the curve. The square of its distance from
(0, 2) is then
f (x) = x2 + (x2 − 2)2 .
Now f (x) = 2x(2x2 − 3), and therefore f (x) = 0 when x = 0, when x = − 3/2, and when x = + 3/2.
Now f (x) < 0 if x < − 3/2 and if 0 < x < 3/2; f (x) > 0 if − 3/2 < x < 0 and if x > 3/2. Therefore
x = 0 yields a local maximum for f ; the other two zeros of f (x) yield its global minimum. Answer: There
are exactly two points on the curve that are nearest (0, 2); they are (+ 3/2, 3/2) and (− 3/2, 3/2).

f (x) = C04S04.044: Let y be the height of the cylindrical part and x the length of the radii of both the cylinder

Now dA/dx = 0 when x = (600/π )1/3 ≈ 5.7588. Because dA/dx < 0 for smaller values of x and dA/dx > 0
for larger values, we have found the point at which A(x) attains its global minimum value. After a little
arithmetic, we ﬁnd that y = x, so the radius of the hemisphere and the radius and height of the cylinder
should all be equal to (600/π )1/3 to attain minimal surface area.
This argument contains the implicit assumption that y > 0. If y = 0, then
x = (1500/π )1/3 ≈ 7.8159, for which A = (150)(18π )1/3 ≈ 575.747 cubic inches.
But with x = y = (600/π )1/3 , we have
A = (100)(45π )1/3 ≈ 520.940 cubic inches.
So the solution in the ﬁrst paragraph indeed yields the dimensions of the can requiring the least amount of
material.

The only relevant solution is x = 4. Because f (x) < 0 for x in the interval (−1, 4) and f (x) > 0 if x > 4,

C04S04.055: Finding the exact solution of this problem is quite challenging. In the spirit of mathematical modeling we accept the very good approximation that—if the thickness of the material of the can is
small in comparison with its other dimensions—the total volume of material used to make the can may be
approximated suﬃciently accurately by multiplying the area of the bottom by its thickness, the area of the
curved side by its thickness, the area of the top by its thickness, then adding these three products. Thus let
r denote the radius of the inside of the cylindrical can, let h denote the height of the inside, and let t denote
the thickness of its bottom and curved side; 3t will be the thickness of its top. The total (inner) volume of

C04S04.056: Let each edge of the square base of the box have length x and let y denote the height of the
box. Then the ﬁxed volume of the box is V = x2 y . The cost of its six faces is then (2x2 + 4xy ) · a and the
cost to glue the edges together is (8x + 4y ) · b. Hence the total cost of material and construction will be
C = (2x2 + 4xy ) · a + (8x + 4y ) · b.
Because y = V /x2 , we have

x3 Because x > 0, the only signiﬁcant critical point of C (x) occurs when x = V 1/3 . Clearly C (x) < 0 when x
is small positive and C (x) > 0 if x > V 1/3 . Therefore we have found the value of x that yields the global
minimum value of the cost of the box. The corresponding value of the height of the box is

C04S05.021: f (x) = 3(x2 + 2x + 3) is positive for all x, so the graph of f is increasing on the set of all

decreasing for x < 0 and for x > 2. Thus there is a local maximum at (2, f (2)) and a local minimum at

f (x) → + ∞ as x → −∞ and f (x) → −∞ as x → + ∞.
C04S05.027: f (x) = 15x2 (x − 1)(x + 1), so f is increasing for x < −1 and for x > 1, decreasing for

f (x) = x4 + 4x3 = x4 1 + 4
x → +∞ as x → ± ∞. C04S05.029: f (x) = 4x(x − 2)(x + 2), so the graph of f is decreasing for x < −2 and for 0 < x < 2; it is
increasing if −2 < x < 0 and if x > 2. Therefore the global minimum value −9 of f (x) occurs at x = ± 2

ﬁrst is not a global maximum because f (10) = 2180 > 20; the second is not a global minimum because
f (−10) = −1580 < −7. The graph of y = f (x) is shown next.

x = +∞ and, similarly, f (x) → −∞ as x → −∞.
C04S05.041: f (x) = 6(x2 + x + 1) is positive for all x, so the graph of f is increasing everywhere, with

40 20 -3 -2 -1 1 2 -20 -40 C04S05.042: f (x) = 4x2 (x − 3), so f is increasing for x > 3 and decreasing for x < 3. Therefore there

f (x) ≈ −16x2/3 and f (x) ≈ − 32

3x1/3 Consequently f (x) → −∞ as x → 0+ , whereas f (x) → +∞ as x → 0− . This is consistent with the
observation that f (x) < 0 for all x near (but not equal to) zero. The origin is a local maximum and there

decreasing if 3 < x < 1. Thus there is a local maximum at 3 , 0.3257 (y -coordinate approximate) and a

f (x) = 6(x − 1), so the inﬂection point is located at (1, −47).
C04S06.024: Critical points: (−3, 389) and (6, −340); inﬂection point: (1.5, 24.5).
2 C04S06.025: f (x) = 12x2 − 12x − 189 = 3(2x + 7)(2x − 9), so there are critical points at (−3.5, 553.5)
and (4.5, −470.5). f (x) = 24x − 12, so the inﬂection point is located at (0.5, 41.5).
C04S06.026: Critical points: (−6.25, −8701.56) and (3.4, 9271.08); inﬂection point: (−1.425, 284.76). √
C04S06.027: f (x) = 4x3 − 108x = 4x(x2 − 27), so there are critical points at (0, 237), − 3 3, −492 ,
√
and 3 3, −492 . Next, f (x) = 12x2 − 108 = 12(x − 3)(x + 3), so the inﬂection points are at (−3, −168)
and (3, −168).
C04S06.028: Critical point: (7.5, −1304.69); inﬂection points: (0, −250) and (5, −875).
C04S06.029: f (x) = 15x4 − 80x3 = 5x3 (3x − 16), so there are critical points at (0, 1000) and 136 , − 181144
81
(approximately (5.333333, −2236.345679)). f (x) = 60x3 − 240x2 = 60x2 (x − 4), so the inﬂection points are
at (0, 1000) and (4, −1048).

C04S06.030: Critical points: −4 2, 8192 2 and 4 2, −8192 2 ; inﬂection points: (0, 0), (−4, 7168),
and (4, −7168). C04S06.031: f (x) = 2x − 4 and f (x) ≡ 2, so there is a critical point at (2, −1) and no inﬂection points.
Because f (2) = 2 > 0, there is a local minimum at the critical point. The ﬁrst derivative test shows that
it is in fact a global minimum.
C04S06.032: f (x) = −6 − 2x; f (x) = −2. The only critical point is at (−3, 14), and it is a local
maximum point because f (−3) = −2 < 0. There are no inﬂection points because f (x) never changes sign.
The critical point is actually a global maximum by the ﬁrst derivative test.
C04S06.033: f (x) = 3(x + 1)(x − 1) and f (x) = 6x. f (−1) = 3 and f (−1) = −6, so the critical point
at (−1, 3) is a local maximum. Similarly, the critical point at (1, −1) is a local minimum. The point (0, 1)
is an inﬂection point because f (x) < 0 for x < 0 and f (x) > 0 for x > 0. The extrema are not global
because f (x) → + ∞ as x → + ∞ and f (x) → −∞ as x → −∞.
C04S06.034: f (x) = 3x(x − 2); f (x) = 6(x − 1). There is a critical point at (0, 0) and one at (2, −4).
Now f (0) = −6 < 0, so there is a local maximum at (0, 0); f (2) = 6 > 0, so there is a local minimum at
(2, −4). The only possible inﬂection point is (1, −2), and it is indeed an inﬂection point because f changes
sign there. The extrema are not global.
C04S06.035: If f (x) = xe−x , then f (x) = (1 − x)e−x and f (x) = (x − 2)e−x . Hence f is increasing for
x < 1 and decreasing for x > 1; its graph is concave downward for x < 2 and concave upward for x > 2.
Hence there is a global maximum at (1, e−1 ) and an inﬂection point at (2, 2e−2 ). The graph of y = f (x) is
next.

x2 and f (x) = −3 + 2 ln x

x3 Then f (x) = 0 when x = e and f (x) = 0 when x = e3/2 . Hence the graph of f is increasing for 0 < x < e,
decreasing for x > e, concave downward for 0 < x < e3/2 and concave upward for x > e3/2 . Therefore there
is a global maximum at (e, e−1 ) and an inﬂection point at e3/2 , 3 e−3/2 . The graph of f is shown next.

0.2 2 4 6 8 -0.2
-0.4 C04S06.037: f (x) = 5x4 + 2 and f (x) = 20x3 , so there are no critical points (f (x) > 0 for all x) and
(0, 0) is the only possible inﬂection point. And it is an inﬂection point because f (x) changes sign at x = 0.
C04S06.038: f (x) = 4x(x + 2)(x − 2); f (x) = 12x2 − 16. The critical points are located at (−2, −16),
(0, 0), and (2, −16). Now f (−2) > 0 and f (2) > 0, so (−2, −16) and (2, −16) are local minimum points.
But f √0) < 0, so (0, 0) is a local maximum point. The only possible inﬂection points are where 3x2 − 4 = 0;
(
√
x = 2 3 and x = − 2 3. Because f (x) = 4(3x2 − 4), it is clear that f (x) changes sign at each of these
3
3
two points, so the corresponding points on the graph are inﬂection points. The local minima are actually
global by a careful application of the ﬁrst derivative test.
C04S06.039: f (x) = 2x(x − 1)(2x − 1) and f (x) = 2(6x2 − 6x + 1). So the critical points are (0, 0),
1
1
2 , 16 , and (1, 0). The second derivative test indicates that the ﬁrst and third are local minima and that the
√
√
1

second is a local maximum. The only possible inﬂection points are 1 3 − 3 , 36 and 1 3 + 3 , 36 .
6

2
Why are they both inﬂection points? The graph of f (x) = 2(6x − 6x + 1) is a parabola opening upward
and with its vertex below the x-axis (because f (x) = 0 has two real solutions). The possible inﬂection
points are located at the zeros of f (x), so it should now be clear that f (x) changes sign at each of the two
possible inﬂection points. Because f (x) is never negative, the two local minima are actually global, but the
local maximum is not (because f (x) → + ∞ as x → ± ∞).
C04S06.040: f (x) = x2 (x + 2)(5x + 6) and f (x) = 4x(5x2 + 12x + 6). So the critical points occur where
x = 0, x = −2, and x = − 6 . Now f (0) = 0, so the second derivative test fails here, but f (x) > 0 for x
5
near zero but x = 0, so (0, 0) is not an extremum. Next, f (−2) = −16 < 0, so (−2, 0) is a local maximum
point; f (−1.2) = 5.76 > 0, so − 6 , 3456 is a local minimum point. The possible inﬂection points occur at
5 3125
x = 0, x= 1
5 −6 + √ 6, and x= 1
5 −6 − √ 6. In decimal form these are x = 0, x ≈ −0.710, and x ≈ −1.690. Because f (−2) = −16 < 0, f (−1) = 4 > 0,
f (−0.5) = −2.5 < 0, and f (1) = 92 > 0, each of the three numbers displayed above is the abscissa of
an inﬂection point of the graph of f . None of the extrema is global because f (x) → + ∞ as x → + ∞ and
f (x) → −∞ as x → −∞.
C04S06.041: f (x) = cos x and f (x) = − sin x. f (x) = 0 when x = π /2 and when x = 3π /2;
f (π /2) = −1 < 0 and f (3π /2) = 1 > 0, so the ﬁrst of these critical points is a local maximum and
4 the second is a local minimum. Because | sin x | 1 for all x, these extrema are in fact global. f (x) = 0
when x = π and clearly changes sign there, so there is an inﬂection point at (π , 0).
C04S06.042: Local (indeed, global) maximum point: (0, 1); no inﬂection points.
C04S06.043: f (x) = sec2 x 1 for −π /2 < x < π /2, so there are no extrema. f (x) = 2 sec2 x tan x, so
there is a possible inﬂection point at (0, 0). Because tan x changes sign at x = 0 (and 2 sec2 x does not),
(0, 0) is indeed an inﬂection point.
C04S06.044: f (x) = sec x tan x and f (x) = sec3 x + sec x tan2 x = (sec x)(sec2 x + tan2 x). So (0, 1) is
the only critical point and there are no possible inﬂection points. f (0) = 1, so the second derivative test
shows that (0, 1) is a local minimum point. The ﬁrst derivative test identiﬁes (0, 1) as a global minimum
point.
C04S06.045: f (x) = −2 sin x cos x and f (x) = 2 sin2 x − 2 cos2 x. Hence (0, 1), (π /2, 0), and (π , 1) are
critical points. By the second derivative test the ﬁrst and third are local maxima and the second is a local
minimum. (Because 0
cos2 x
1 for all x, these extrema are all global.) There are possible inﬂection
points at (−π /4, 1/2), (π /4, 1/2), (3π /4, 1/2), and (5π /4, 1/2). A close examination of f (x) reveals that
it changes sign at all four of these points, so each is an inﬂection point.
C04S06.046: f (x) = sin3 x, −π < x < π :
f (x) = 3 sin2 x cos x, f (x) = 6 sin x cos2 x − 3 sin3 x = 3(2 cos2 x − sin2 x) sin x. Global minimum at (−π /2, −1); global maximum at (π /2, 1); inﬂection points at x = 0 and at the four
solutions of tan2 x = 2 in (−π , π ): approximately (−2.186276, −0.544331), (−0.955317, −0.544331), (0, 0),
(0.955317, 0.544331), and (2.186276, 0.544331).
C04S06.047: If f (x) = 10(x − 1)e−2x , then
f (x) = 10(3 − 2x)e−2x and f (x) = 40(x − 2)e−2x . Thus the graph of f is increasing for 0 < x < 3 and decreasing for x > 3 . It is concave downward for
2
2
0 < x < 2 and concave upward if x > 2. Hence there is a global maximum at (1.5, 5e−3 ) ≈ (1.5, 0.248935)
and an inﬂection point at (2, 10e−4 ) ≈ (2, 0.183156). The graph of f is next.

So the graph of f is decreasing for x < 1 3 − 5 and for x > 1 3 + 5 , increasing otherwise; it is

0.4 0.2 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 -0.2 -0.4 C04S06.051: We are to minimize the product of two numbers whose diﬀerence is 20; thus if x is the
smaller, we are to minimize f (x) = x(x + 20). Now f (x) = 20 + 2x, so f (x) = 0 when x = −10. But
6 f (x) ≡ 2 is positive when x = −10, so there is a local minimum at (−10, −100). Because the graph of f is
a parabola opening upward, this local minimum is in fact the global minimum. Answer: The two numbers
are −10 and 10.
C04S06.052: We assume that the length turned upward is the same on each side—call it y . If the width
of the gutter is x, then we have the constraint xy = 18, and we are to minimize the width x + 2y of the
strip. Its width is given by the function
f (x) = x + 36
,
x x > 0, for which
f (x) = 1 − 36
x2 and f (x) = 72
.
x3 The only critical point in the domain of f is x = 6, and f (x) > 0 on the entire domain of f . Consequently
the graph of f is concave upward for all x > 0. Because f is continuous for such x, f (6) = 12 is the global
minimum of f .
C04S06.053: Let us minimize
g (x) = (x − 3)2 + (3 − 2x − 2)2 = (x − 3)2 + (1 − 2x)2 ,
the square of the distance from the point (x, y ) on the line 2x + y = 3 to the point (3, 2). We have
g (x) = 2(x − 3) − 4(1 − 2x) = 10x − 10; g (x) ≡ 10. So x = 1 is the only critical point of g . Because
g (x) is always positive, the graph of g is concave upward on the set I of all real numbers, and therefore
R
(1, g (1)) = (1, 1) yields the global minimum for g . So the point on the given line closest to (3, 2) is (1, 1).
C04S06.054: Base of box: x wide, 2x long. Height: y . Then the box has volume 2x2 y = 576, so
y = 288x−2 . Its total surface area is A = 4x2 + 6xy , so we minimize
A = A(x) = 4x2 + 1728
,
z x > 0. Now
A (x) = 8x − 1728
x2 and A (x) = 8 + 3456
.
x3 The only critical point of A(x) occurs when 8x3 = 1728; that is, when x = 6. But A (x) > 0 for all x > 0,
so the graph of y = A(x) is concave upward for all x > 0. Therefore A(6) is the global minimum value of
A(x). Also, when x = 6 we have y = 8. Answer: The dimensions of the box of minimal surface area are 6
inches wide by 12 inches long by 8 inches high.
C04S06.055: Base of box: x wide, 2x long. Height: y . Then the box has volume 2x2 y = 972, so
y = 486x−2 . Its total surface area is A = 2x2 + 6xy , so we minimize
A = A(x) = 2x2 + 2916
,
x x > 0. Now
A (x) = 4x − 2916
x2 and
7 A (x) = 4 + 5832
.
x3 The only critical point of A occurs when x = 9, and A (x) is always positive. So the graph of y = A(x) is
concave upward for all x > 0; consequently, (9, A(9)) is the lowest point on the graph of A. Answer: The
dimensions of the box are 9 inches wide, 18 inches long, and 6 inches high.
C04S06.056: If the radius of the base of the pot is r and its height is h (inches), then we are to minimize
the total surface area A given the constraint π r2 h = 125. Thus h = 125/(π r2 ), and so
A = π r2 + 2π rh = A(r) = π r2 + 250
,
r r > 0. Hence
A (r) = 2π r − 250
r2 and A (r) = 2π + 500
.
r3 √
Now A (r) = 0 when r3 = 125/π , so that r = 5/ 3 π . This is the only critical point of A, and A (r) > 0 for
all r, so the graph of y = A(r) is concave upward for all r in the domain of A. Consequently we have located
√
√
the global minimum, and it occurs when the pot has radius r = 5/ 3 π inches and height h = 5/ 3 π inches.
Thus the pot will have its radius equal to its height, each approximately 3.414 inches.
C04S06.057: Let r denote the radius of the pot and h its height. We are given the constraint π r2 h = 250,
so h = 250/(π r2 ). Now the bottom of the pot has area π r2 , and thus costs 4π r2 cents. The curved side of
the pot has area 2π rh, and thus costs 4π rh cents. So the total cost of the pot is
C = 4π r2 + 4π rh = C (r) = 4π r2 + 1000
,
r r > 0. Now
1000
2000
and
C (r) = 8π + 3 .
r2
r
√
C (r) = 0 when 8π r3 = 1000, so that r = 5/ 3 π . Because C (r) > 0 for all r > 0, the graph of y = C (r)
is concave upward on the domain of C . Therefore we have found the value of r that minimizes C (r).
√
The corresponding value of h is 10/ 3 π , so the pot of minimal cost has height equal to its diameter, each
approximately 6.828 centimeters.
C (r) = 8π r − C04S06.058: Let x denote the length of each side of the square base of the solid and let y denote its
height. Then its total volume is x2 y = 1000. We are to minimize its total surface area A = 2x2 + 4xy . Now
y = 1000/(x2 ), so
A = A(x) = 2x2 + 4000
,
x x > 0. Therefore
A (x) = 4x − 4000
x2 and A (x) = 4 + 8000
.
x3 The only critical point occurs when x = 10, and A (x) > 0 for all x in the domain of A, so x = 10 yields
the global minimum value of A(x). In this case, y = 10 as well, so the solid is indeed a cube.
C04S06.059: Let the square base of the box have edge length x and let its height be y , so that its total
volume is x2 y = 62.5 and the surface area of this box-without-top will be A = x2 + 4xy . So
A = A(x) = x2 +
8 250
,
x x > 0. Now
A (x) = 2x − 250
x2 and A (x) = 2 + 500
.
x3 The only critical point occurs when x = 5, and A (x) > 0 for all x in the domain of A, so x = 5 yields the
global minimum for A. Answer: Square base of edge length x = 5 inches, height y = 2.5 inches.
C04S06.060: Let r denote the radius of the can and h its height (in centimeters). We are to minimize its
total surface area A = 2π r2 + 2π rh given the constraint π r2 h = V = 16π . First we note that h = V /(π r2 ),
so we minimize
A = A(r) = 2π r2 + 2V
,
r r > 0. Now
A (r) = 4π r − 2V
r2 and A (r) = 4π + 4V
.
r3 The only critical point of A occurs when 4π r3 = 2V = 32π —that is, when r = 2. Now A (r) > 0 for all
r > 0, so the graph of y = A(r) is concave upward for all r > 0. Thus the global minimum occurs when
r = 2 centimeters, for which h = 4 centimeters.
C04S06.061: Let x denote the radius and y the height of the cylinder (in inches). Then its cost (in cents)
is C = 8π x2 + 4π xy , and we also have the constraint π x2 y = 100. So
C = C (x) = 8π x2 + 400
,
x x > 0. Now
C (x) = 16π x − 400
x2 and C (x) = 16π + 800
.
x3 The only critical point in the domain of C is x = 3 25/π (about 1.9965 inches) and, consequently, when
y = 3 1600/π (about 7.9859 inches). Because C (x) > 0 for all x in the domain of C , we have indeed found
the dimensions that minimize the cost of the can. For simplicity, note that y = 4x at the minimum: The
height of the can is twice its diameter.
C04S06.062: Let x denote the width of the print. Then 30/x is the height of the print, x + 2 is the width
of the page, and (30/x) + 4 is the height of the page. We minimize the area A of the page, where

x2 and A (x) = C04S06.063: Given: f (x) = 2x3 − 3x2 − 12x + 3. We have
9 f (x) = 6(x − 2)(x + 1) and f (x) = 12x − 6. Hence (−1, 10) and (2, −17) are critical points and (0.5, −3.5) is a possible inﬂection point. Because
f (x) > 0 if x > 0.5 and f (x) < 0 if x < 0.5, the possible inﬂection point is an actual inﬂection point,
there is a local maximum at (−1, 10), and a local minimum at (2, −17). The extrema are not global because
f (x) → + ∞ as x → + ∞ and f (x) → −∞ as x → −∞. The graph of f is next.

the second derivative test), that (−0.2, 8.39808) is a local maximum, and that (−2, 0) is not an extremum.
Also, the second derivative changes sign at each of its zeros, so each of these three zeros is the abscissa of

C04S06.083: (a): Proof: The result holds when n = 1. Suppose that it holds for n = k where k
Then f (k) (x) = k ! if f (x) = xk . Now if g (x) = xk+1 , then g (x) = xf (x). So by the product rule,
g (x) = xf (x) + f (x) = x (kxk−1 ) + xk = (k + 1)xk .
Thus
g (k+1) (x) = (k + 1)Dxk (xk ) = (k + 1)f (k) (x) = (k + 1)(k !) = (k + 1)!.
15 1. That is, whenever the result holds for n = k , it follows for n = k + 1. Therefore, by induction, it holds for
all integers n 1.
(b): Because the n th derivative of xn is constant, any higher order derivative of xn is zero. The result
now follows immediately.
C04S06.084: f (x) = cos x, f (x) = − sin x, f (3) = − cos x, and f (4) = sin x = f (x). It is now clear that

f (x) = 6ax + 2b. The latter is zero when and only when x = −b/(3a), and this is the abscissa of an

tangent to it at a single point. In the ﬁrst case, f (x) changes sign twice, so there are two points of inﬂection
on the graph of f . In the second case, f (x) does not change sign, so f has no inﬂection points. Therefore
the graph of a polynomial of degree four has either exactly two inﬂection points or else none at all.

f (c + h)

h
if h is close to zero. Thus f (c + h) > 0 for such h. Similarly, if f (c) > 0 and h < 0, then again
f (c + h)
>0
h
if h is near zero, so f (c + h) < 0 for such h. So f (x) > 0 for x > c (but close to c) and f (x) < 0 for x < c
(but close to c). By the ﬁrst derivative test, f (c) is a local minimum for f . The proof in part (b) is very
similar.
C04S06.091: If f (x) = 1000x3 − 3051x2 + 3102x + 1050, then
f (x) = 3000x2 − 6102x + 3102 and f (x) = 6000x − 6102. So the graph of f has horizontal tangents at the two points (1, 2101) and (1.034, 2100.980348) (coordinates
exact) and there is a possible inﬂection point at (1.017, 2100.990174) (coordinates exact). Indeed, the usual
tests show that the ﬁrst of these is a local maximum, the second is a local minimum, and the third is an
inﬂection point. The Mathematica command
Plot[ f[x], { x, 0.96, 1.07 } ];
produces a graph that shows all three points clearly; it’s next. 2101.02 0.96 0.98 1.02 1.04 1.06 2100.98 2100.96 C04S06.092: If f (x) = [ x(1 − x)(9x − 7)(4x − 1)]4 , then
f (x) = 4x3 (4x − 1)3 (x − 1)3 (9x − 7)3 (144x3 − 219x2 + 88x − 7)
and
17 f (x) = 4x2 (4x − 1)2 (x − 1)2 (9x − 7)2 (77760x6 − 236520x5 + 274065x4 − 150400x3 + 39368x2 − 4312x + 147).

4, 0, (0.5109, 0.1539), 7
9, 0, (0.9048, 0.0044), and (1, 0) (all four-place decimals shown here are rounded approximations). The usual tests show that the ﬁrst, third,
ﬁfth, and seventh of these are global minima and the other three are local maxima. Moreover, there are
possible inﬂection points at
(0, 0), (0.0609, 0.0061), (0.1499, 0.0069),

points not extrema are indeed inﬂection points. The Mathematica command
Plot[ f[x], { x, −0.05, 0.05 } ];
clearly shows the global minimum at (0, 0). The command
Plot[ f[x], { x, 0.02, 0.1 } ];
clearly shows the inﬂection point near (0.0609, 0.0061). These graphs are shown next.

C04S07.010: Divide each term in numerator and denominator by x3/2 , the highest power of x that appears
in any term. (This works well for evaluating limits of rational functions as x → ± ∞, and sometimes works for
1 more complicated functions.) The numerator then becomes 2x−1/2 + x−3/2 , which approaches 0 as x → +∞;
the denominator becomes x−1/2 − 1, which approaches −1 as x → +∞. Therefore the limit is 0.

x2 + 2x → +∞. Therefore
lim x→−∞ x2 + 2x = + ∞ √
as well. If the large positive number −x is added to x2 + 2x, then the resulting sum also approaches + ∞.
But arguments such as this are sometimes misleading (this subject will be taken up in detail in Sections 4.8
and 4.9), so it is more reliable to reason analytically, as follows:

√
Note 1: The minus sign is necessary because x < 0, and therefore x2 = −x, not x. It’s important
not to miss this detail because the other sign will give the incorrect limit 1.
Note 2: There are so many dangers associated with minus signs and negative numbers in this problem
that it would probably be better to let u = −x and recast the problem in the form
lim x→−∞ x2 + 2x − x = lim u2 − 2u + u , u→+∞ then multiply numerator and denominator by the conjugate of the numerator as in the previous calculation.

the graph of y = x3 at and near the discontinuity of f (x) at x = 1. We are aided in sketching the graph of f
by ﬁnding its x-intercepts—these are approximately −1.654 and 2.172—as well as its y -intercept 12 and its
inﬂection points (2.22, 1.04) and (−0.75, 6.44) (also approximations). A Mathematica-generated graph of f

limit with l’Hˆpital’s rule:
o
lim x→∞ x + sin x
1 + cos x
= lim
,
3x + cos x x→∞ 3 − sin x but the latter limit does not exist (and so the equals mark in the previous equation is invalid). The reason:
As x → + ∞, x runs inﬁnitely many times through numbers of the form nπ where n is a positive even
integer. At such real numbers the value of
1 + cos x
3 − sin x f (x) = is 2 . But x also runs inﬁnitely often through numbers of the form nπ where n is a positive odd integer. At
3
these real numbers the value of f (x) is 0. Because f (x) takes on these two distinct values inﬁnitely often as
x → + ∞, f (x) has no limit as x → + ∞.
This does not imply that the limit given in Problem 22 does not exist. (Read Theorem 1 carefully.)
In fact, the limit does exist, and we have here the rare phenomenon of failure of l’Hˆpital’s rule. Other
o
techniques must be used to solve this problem. Perhaps the simplest is this:

f (x) = (n − x)xn−1
ex and f (x) = (x2 − 2nx + n2 − n)xn−2
.
ex Therefore f (x) = 0 at the two points (0, 0) and (n, nn e−n ). We consider only the part of the graph for
which x > 0, and the graph of f is increasing for 0 < x < n and decreasing if x > n, so there is a local
√

maximum at x = n. Next, f (x) = 0 when x = a = n − n and when x = b = n + n. It is easy to
establish that f (x) > 0 if 0 < x < a and if x > b, but that f (x) < 0 if a < x < b. (Use the fact that
the graph of g (x) = x2 − 2nx + n2 − n is a parabola opening upward.) Therefore the graph of f has two
inﬂection points for x > 0.
C04S08.064: Given: f (x) = x−k ln x where k is a positive constant. Then
f (x) = 1 − k ln x

xk+1 and the sign of f (x) is the same as the sign of 1 − k ln x, which is positive if 0 < x < e1/k but negative if
x > e1/k . Hence the graph of f will have a single local maximum where x = e1/k . Next,
f (x) = k 2 ln x + k ln x − 2k − 1
,
xk+2 so f (x) = 0 when
x = exp 2k + 1
k2 + k , so the graph of f has at most one inﬂection point. Moreover, if x is near zero then f (x) < 0, whereas
f (x) > 0 if x is large positive. Therefore the graph of f has exactly one inﬂection point. Finally, the result
in Problem 62 shows that the positive x-axis is a horizontal asymptote.

2 The continuity of f (x) is needed for two reasons: It implies that f is also continuous, so the ﬁrst numerator

both approach f (x) as h → 0.

2 The continuity of f (x) is needed for the following reasons: We needed to know that f (x + h) and f (x − h)
both approach f (x) as h → 0. We also needed to know that f was continuous so that the second numerator
approaches zero as h → 0. There is a third reason, which you will see when you discover the reason for the
presence of the term −2f (x) in the ﬁrst numerator.

f (x) 0 for x 0, f (0) = 0, and f (x) → 0 as x → + ∞, f (x) must have a maximum value, and the critical
point where x = n is the sole candidate. Hence the global maximum value of f (x) is f (n) = nn e−n .

16 Next we let f (x) = (ln x) − x1/10 and followed the suggestion in Problem 74. The graph of f ﬁnally

x2 (1 + x2 ) but could not solve the transcendental equation 2x2 = (1 + x2 ) ln(1 + x2 ) exactly. So we used Newton’s
method to solve f (x) = 0, and our conclusion is that the global maximum value of f (x) is approximately
2.2361202715 ≈ f (1.9802913004).

f (x) → e0 = 1 as x → 0+ and as x → + ∞. Next we used the method of successive zooms to ﬁnd that f (x) has a global maximum just a little to
the right of the point where x = 0.5. Solving f (x) = 0 exactly seemed hopeless; we used Newton’s method
to solve f (x) = 0 to ﬁnd that the global maximum value of f (x) is approximately
f (0.5049762122) ≈ 2.2361202715. C04S09.041: Given: f (x) = (x + sin x)1/x . The graph of y = f (x) for 0.01

1 provides strong
evidence that f (x) → 0 as x → 0+ . The graph of y = f (x) for 10 x 1000 provides fairly good evidence

x→∞ x + sin x
x and therefore lim (x + sin x)1/x = e0 = 1.
x→∞ But (x + sin x)1/x is not indeterminate as x → 0+ because if x is very small and positive, then x + sin x
is positive and near zero while 1/x is very large positive. Therefore lim+ (x + sin x)1/x = 0.
x→0 Then a plot of y = f (x) for 0.5 x 2 revealed a global maximum near where x = 1.2. A plot of f for
1.2095 x 1.2097 (by the “method of repeated zooms”) showed the maximum near the midpoint of that
10 interval. That graph is shown next. The equation f (x) = 0 appeared to be impossible to solve exactly, so
we used Newton’s method to ﬁnd that the maximum of f (x) is very close to (1.2095994645, 1.8793598343). 1.87936

. A plot of y = f (x) for 0.01 x 1 indicated that as
x → 0+ , f (x) approaches a number between 0.60 and 0.61. A plot of y = f (x) for 10 x 1000 indicated
oscillations between 0.9999 and 1.0, but dying out very rapidly while maintaining an upper bound of 1.0.
Thus there is evidence that f (x) → 1 as x → + ∞. Analytically, we compute these limits as follows:
ln lim x→0+ exp(1/x2 ) (cos x−1) = lim+ (cos x − 1) ln exp(1/x2 )

x→0 Therefore f (x) → e−1/2 ≈ 0.6065306597 as x → 0+ . As x → + ∞, cos x − 1 varies between 0 and −2 while
exp(1/x2 ) → 1 from above (and quite rapidly). Hence f (x) → 1 as x → + ∞; note that f (x)
1 for all
x > 0.
Moreover, when cos x − 1 = 0 (which happens at each integral multiple of 2π ), f (x) = 1, and this is the
maximum value of f (x). Examination of
f (x) = − 2f (x)(cos x − 1) f (x) sin x
−
x3
x2 makes it clear that f (2nπ ) = 0 for every positive integer n, although this does not establish that there are
no other locations of maxima. What is clear is that 1 is the maximum value of f (x) for x > 0.

of n. We assume throughout that A0 > 0, that 0 < r 1, and that n 1. For the purpose of computing

1, then x > 1, so
g (x) “starts” with the positive value g (1) ≈ 0.193147. Moreover, g (x) thenceforth decreases because its
derivative,
g (x) = − 1
,
x(1 + x)2 is negative for all x > 0. Finally, it is obvious from the deﬁnition of g that g (x) → 0 as x → + ∞. Therefore
g (x) remains positive, because if it once took on the value zero, it would thereafter attain a negative value
13 z , and then (continuing to decrease) would remain forever less than z —in which case it could not approach
zero as x → + ∞.

C04S09.049: Given: f (x) = | ln x |1/x for x > 0. The graph of y = f (x) for 0.2 x 0.3 shows f (x)
taking on values in excess of 1028 , so it seems quite likely that f (x) → + ∞ as x → 0+ . Indeed, this is the
case, because as x → 0+ , we see that | ln x | → +∞ and also the exponent 1/x is increasing without bound. Next we show the graph of y = f (x) for 0.5 x 1 (on the left) and for 0.9 x 1.1 (on the right).
The ﬁrst indicates an inﬂection point near where x = 0.8 and the second shows a clear global minimum at
(1, 0). To ﬁnd the inﬂection point, we redeﬁned f (x) = (− ln x)1/x and computed
f (x) = f (x)
x4 (ln x)2 1 − x − 3x ln x − 2(ln x) ln(− ln x) + 2x(ln x)2 ln(− ln x) + (ln x)2 (ln(− ln x))2 (assisted by Mathematica, of course). We let
g (x) = 1 − x − 3x ln x − 2(ln x) ln(− ln x) + 2x(ln x)2 ln(− ln x) + (ln x)2 (ln(− ln x))2
and applied Newton’s method to solve the equation g (x) = 0. With initial guess x0 = 0.8, six iterations yielded over 20 digits of accuracy, and the inﬂection point shown in the ﬁgure is located close to
(0.8358706352, 0.1279267691).

0.1 0.5 0.6 0.7 0.8 0.02 0.9 0.9 0.95 1.05 1.1 It is clear that f (x) > 0 if 0 < x < 1 and if x > 1, so the graph of f has a global minimum at (1, 0).
Still using f (x) = (− ln x)1/x , we computed
14 f (x) = f (x)(1 − (ln x)(ln(− ln x)))
,
x2 ln x and thereby found that
lim f (x) = −1. x→1− Then we redeﬁned f (x) = (ln x)1/x and computed
f (x) = f (x)
(1 − (ln x) ln(ln x)) .
x2 ln x Then we found that
lim f (x) = 1. x→1+ Thus the shape of the graph of f near (1, 0) is quite similar to the shape of y = | x | near (0, 0). Next we plotted the graph of y = f (x) for 1 x 2 (shown next, on the left) and for 4 x 10 (next,
on the right). The ﬁrst of these indicates an inﬂection point near where x = 1.2 and the second shows a
clear local maximum near where x = 5.8. To locate the inﬂection point more accurately, we computed
f (x) = f (x)
x4 (ln x)2 1 − x − 3x ln x − 2(ln x) ln(ln x) + 2x(ln x)2 ln(ln x) + (ln x)2 (ln(ln x))2 and applied Newton’s method to the solution of g (x) = 0, where
g (x) = 1 − x − 3x ln x − 2(ln x) ln(ln x) + 2x(ln x)2 ln(ln x) + (ln x)2 (ln(ln x))2 .

1.2 1.4 1.6 1.8 1.085 2 Beginning with the initial guess x0 = 1.2, seven iterations yielded more than 20 digits of accuracy; the
inﬂection point is located close to (1.1163905964, 0.1385765415).
To ﬁnd the local maximum, we applied Newton’s method to the equation g (x) = 0, where
g (x) = 1 − (ln x) ln(ln x).
Beginning with the initial guess x0 = 5.8, six iterations yielded more than 20 digits of accuracy; the local
maximum is very close to (5.8312001357, 1.1021470392).
Finally, we plotted y = f (x) for 10
x
1000 (shown after this solution). The change in concavity
indicates that there must be yet another inﬂection point near where x = 9. Newton’s method again yielded
its approximate coordinates as (8.9280076968, 1.0917274397). The last graph also suggests that f (x) → 1
as x → + ∞. This is indeed the case;

1.08 1.06 1.04 1.02 200 400 600 800 1000 C04S09.050: We applied the techniques of the previous solution to f (x) = | ln x |1/| ln x | , x > 0. The graph
of y = f (x) for 0.0001 x 0.4 shows a maximum near where x = 0.06. We redeﬁned f (x) = (− ln x)−1/ ln x
and found that
f (x) = f (x)(−1 + ln(− ln x))
,
x(ln x)2 and it is easy to solve the equation f (x) = 0 for x = e−e . Hence there is a local maximum at (e−e , e1/e ) ≈
(0.0659880358, 1.4446678610). The limit of f (x) as x → 0+ is not clear from the graph, but
ln lim f (x) x→0+ = lim x→0+ −x
= 0,
x ln x and therefore f (x) → e0 = 1 as x → 0+ . The graph of y = f (x) also indicates an inﬂection point near where
x = 0.5, and application of Newton’s method to the equation f (x) = 0 with initial guess x0 = 0.5 reveals
that its coordinates are very close to (0.5070215891, 0.5657817947).
The graph of y = f (x) for 0.5 x 1.5 suggests a horizontal tangent and global minimum at (1, 0),
but f (1) is not deﬁned. Nevertheless, as x → 1, the base | ln x | approaches zero through positive values
while the exponent 1/| ln x | approaches + ∞, so f (x) → 0 as x → 1. We collected graphical and numerical
evidence that f (x) → 0 as x → 1 but have no formal proof. The graph of y = f (x) for 1.2 x 2 indicates an inﬂection point near where x = 1.7. We rewrote
f in the form f (x) = (ln x)1/ ln x and applied Newton’s method to the equation f (x) = 0 to ﬁnd that the
inﬂection point is close to (1.6903045007, 0.2929095074). The graph also indicates a local maximum near
where x = 15. Because
f (x) = f (x)(1 − ln(ln x))
,
x(ln x)2 it is easy to solve f (x) = 0 for x = ee , so that extremum is located at (ee , e1/e ) ≈ (15.154262, 1.444668).
Hence both local maxima are global maxima. The graph also shows an inﬂection point near where x = 26,
and Newton’s method reveals its approximate coordinates to be (26.5384454497, 1.4364458579). The graph
of y = f (x) for 400 x 4000 did not indicate any particular limit as x → + ∞, but
ln lim f (x) = lim x→∞ x→∞ and therefore f (x) → 1 as x → + ∞.

a local minimum near where x = 0.7 (that graph is next, on the right.)

.
x (1) Then it is easy to solve f (x) = 0 for x = e−1/e . So the graph of y = f (x) has a local minimum at
(e−1/e , e−1/e ). Both the abscissa and the ordinate are approximately 0.6922006276. Next, the graph shows
a cusp at the point (1, 1); there is a local maximum at that point, and | f (x) | → +∞ as x → 1. To see why,
rewrite f (x) = (ln x)ln x for x > 1. Then
f (x) = (ln x)ln x (1 + ln(ln x))
,
x (2) and it is clear that f (x) → −∞ as x → 1+ . You can also use Eq. (1) to show that f (x) → + ∞ as x → 1− .
This is not apparent from the graph of y = f (x) for 0.9 x 1.1, shown next (on the left).
Next we plotted y = f (x) for 1 x 2 and found another local minimum near where x = 1.4. (The
graph is next, on the right.) It is easy to solve f (x) = 0 (use Eq. (2)), and you’ll ﬁnd that the coordinates
of this point are (e1/e , e−1/e ), so the two local minima are actually global minima. Finally, it’s clear that
f (x) → + ∞ as x → + ∞.

The only way that

polynomial, it has the intermediate value property. Therefore the equation g (x) = 0 has at least one solution
5 in the interval 1 x 2. Moreover, g (x) = 5x4 + 1, so g (x) > 0 for all x. Consequently g is increasing
on the set of all real numbers, and so takes on each value—including zero—at most once. We may conclude
that the equation g (x) = 0 has exactly one solution, and hence that the equation x5 + x = 5 has exactly one
solution. (The solution is approximately 1.299152792.)

f (x) by minimizing its denominator (x + 1)2 + 1. It is clear that x = −1 does the trick, so the maximum
value of f (x) is f (−1) = 1.
C04S0M.074: Let k be the proportionality constant for cost; if the pot has radius r and height h, we are
to minimize total cost
C = k (5)(π r2 ) + (1)(2π rh)

C04S0M.075: Let x represent the width of the base of the box. Then the length of the base is 2x and,

Now f (x) = 4x − (13500/x2 ), so f (x) = 0 when x = 3 3375 = 15. Note that f (15) > 0, so surface area is
minimized when x = 15. The box of minimal surface area is 15 cm wide, 30 cm long, and 10 cm high.
f (x) = 2x2 + 4x · C04S0M.076: Let x represent the edge length of the square base of the box. Because the volume of the

minimized when x = 6. The box we seek has a square base 6 in. on a side and height 9 in.
C04S0M.077: Let x represent the width of the base of the box. Then the box has base of length 2x and
height 200/x2 . We minimize the cost C of the box, where

x 0 < x < ∞. √
Now C (x) = 48x − (6000/x2 ), so C (x) = 0 when x = 3 125 = 5. Because C (5) > 0, the cost C is
minimized when x = 5. The box of minimal cost is 5 in. wide, 10 in. long, and 8 in. high.
C04S0M.078: If the zeros of f (x) are at a, b, and c (with a < b < c), apply Rolle’s theorem to f on the

C04S0M.079: If the speed of the truck is v , then the trip time is T = 1000/v . So the resulting cost is

Then C (v ) = 0 when v = (200, 000/9)2/5 ≈ 54.79 mi/h. This clearly minimizes the cost, because C (v ) > 0
for all v > 0.
C04S0M.080: The sum in question is
S (x) = (x − a1 )2 + (x − a2 )2 + . . . + (x − an )2 .
Now S (x) = 2(x − a1 ) + 2(x − a2 ) + . . . + 2(x − an ); S (x) = 0 when nx = a1 + a2 + . . . + an , so that
x= 1
(a1 + a2 + . . . + an )
n (1) —the average of the n ﬁxed numbers. It is clear that S is continuous and that S (x) → +∞ as |x| → +∞,
so S (x) must have a global minimum value. Therefore the value of x in Eq. (1) minimizes the sum of the
squares of the distances.

Now f (x) = 3 − 4800x−2 , which is zero only when x = 1600 = 40. Veriﬁcation: f (x) > 0 if x > 40 and

have found the value of x that yields the global minimum value of A, which is A(4) = 288 (in.2 ). The fact
that 288 is also the numerical value of the volume is a mere coincidence.

2 4 6 8 10 In the solutions for Problems 57–78, unless otherwise indicated, we will take the upward direction to
be the positive direction, s = s(t) for position (in feet) at time t (in seconds) with s = 0 corresponding to
ground level, and v (t) velocity at time t in feet per second, a = a(t) acceleration at time t in feet per second
per second. The initial position will be denoted by s0 and the initial velocity by v0 .
C05S02.057: Here, a = −32, v (t) = −32t + 96, s(t) = −16t2 + 96t. The maximum height is reached when
v = 0, thus when t = 3. The maximum height is therefore s(3) = 144. The ball remains aloft until s(t) = 0
for t > 0; t = 6. So it remains aloft for six seconds.
C05S02.058: With initial velocity v0 , here we have
a(t) = −32, v (t) = −32t + v0 , and s(t) = −16t2 + v0 t (because s0 = 0). The maximum altitude is attained when v = 0, which occurs when t = v0 /32. Therefore
400 = s(v0 /32) = (−16)(v0 /32)2 + (v0 )2 /32.
It follows that 1
2
64 (v0 ) = 400, and therefore that v0 = 160 (ft/s). C05S02.059: Here it is more convenient to take the downward direction as the positive direction. Thus
a(t) = +32, v (t) = +32t (because v0 = 0), and s(t) = 16t2 (because s0 = 0). The stone hits the bottom when t = 3, and at that time we have s = s(3) = 144. Answer: The well is 144
feet deep.
C05S02.060: We have v (t) = −32t + v0 and s(t) = −16t2 + v0 t. Also 0 = s(4), so 4v0 = 256: v0 = 64.
Thus
v (t) = −32t + 64 and s(t) = −16t2 + 64t. The height of the tree is the maximum value of s(t), which occurs when v (t) = 0; that is, when t = 2.
Therefore the height of the tree is s(2) = 64 (feet).
C05S02.061: Here, v (t) = −32t + 48 and s(t) = −16t2 + 48t + 160. The ball strikes the ground at that
value of t > 0 for which s(t) = 0:
0 = s(t) = −16(t − 5)(t + 2),
5 so t = 5. Therefore the ball remains aloft for 5 seconds. Its velocity at impact is v (5) = −112 (ft/s), so the ball strikes
the ground at a speed of 112 ft/s.
C05S02.062: First ball: v0 = 0, s0 = 576. So s(t) = −16t2 + 576. The ﬁrst ball strikes the ground at that
t > 0 for which s(t) = 0; t = 6. Second ball: The second ball must remain aloft from time t = 3 until time
t = 6, thus for 3 seconds. Reset t = 0 as the time it is thrown downward. Then with initial velocity v0 , the
second ball has velocity and position
v (t) = −32t + v0 and s(t) = −16t2 + v0 t + 576 at time t. We require that s(3) = 0; that is, 0 = s(3) = −144 + 3v0 + 576, so that v0 = −144. Answer: The
second ball should be thrown straight downward with an initial velocity of 144 ft/s.
C05S02.063: One solution: Take s0 = 960, v0 = 0. Then
v (t) = −32t and s(t) = −16t2 + 960. √
The ball hits the street for that value of t > 0 for which s(t) = 0—that is, when t = 2 √
15. It therefore
√
takes the ball approximately 7.746 seconds to reach the street. Its velocity then is v (2 15) = −64 15
(ft/s)—approximately 247.87 ft/s (downward), almost exactly 169 miles per hour.
C05S02.064: Here we have v (t) = −32t + 320 and s(t) = −16t2 + 320t. After three seconds have elapsed
the height of the arrow will be s(3) = 816 (ft). The height of the arrow will be 1200 feet when s(t) = 1200:
16t2 − 320t + 1200 = 0;
16(t − 5)(t − 15) = 0; t = 5 and t = 15 are both solutions. So the height of the arrow will be 1200 feet both when t = 5 (the arrow
is still rising) and when t = 15 (the arrow is falling). The arrow strikes the ground at that value of t > 0 for
which s(t) = 0: t = 20. So the arrow will strike the ground 20 seconds after it is released.
C05S02.065: With v (t) = −32t + v0 and s(t) = −16t2 + v0 t, we have the maximum altitude s = 225
occurring when v (t) = 0; that is, when t = v0 /32. So
225 = s(v0 /32) = (−16)(v0 /32)2 + (v0 )2 /32 = (v0 )2 /64.
It follows that v0 = +120. So the initial velocity of the ball was 120 ft/s.
C05S02.066: Note that the units are meters and seconds. It is also more convenient to take the downward
direction as the positive direction here. Thus
v (t) = 9.8t and s(t) = 4.9t2 .
√
√
The rock reaches the water when s(t) = 98: t = +2 √ So it takes the rock 2 5 seconds to reach the water.
5.
Its velocity as it penetrates the water surface is v (2 5) ≈ 43.8 (m/s).
C05S02.067: In this problem, v (t) = −32t + v0 = −32t and s(t) = −16t2 + s0 = −16t2 + 400. The
ball reaches the ground when s = 0, thus when 16t2 = 400: t = +5. Therefore the impact velocity is
v (5) = (−32)(5) = −160 (ft/s).
C05S02.068: Here s0 will be the height of the building, so
6 v (t) = −32t − 25 and s(t) = −16t2 − 25t + s0 . The velocity at impact is −153 ft/s, so we can obtain the time of impact t by solving v (t) = −153: t = 4.
At this time we also have s = 0:
0 = s(4) = (−16)(16) − (25)(4) + s0 ,
so that s0 = 356. Answer: The building is 356 feet high.
C05S02.069: For this problem, we take s(t) = −16t2 + 160t and v (t) = −32t + 160. Because s = 0 when
t = 0 and when t = 10, the time aloft is 10 seconds. The velocity is zero at maximum altitude, and that
occurs when 32t = 160: t = 5. So the maximum altitude is s(5) = 400 (ft).
C05S02.070: Let f (t) be the altitude of the sandbag at time t. Then f (t) = −16t2 + h, so the altitude of
the sandbag will be h/2 when f (t) = h/2:
t2 = h
,
32 so t= 1√
2h.
8 Let the ball have initial velocity v0 and altitude s(t) at time t. Then s(t) = −16t2 + v0 t. We require that
s(t) = h/2 at the preceding value of t. That is,
h
= (−16)
2
√
Solution of this equation yields v0 = 4 2h. h
32 + (v0 ) 1√
2h .
8 C05S02.071:√ Because v0 = −40, v (t) = −32t − 40. Thus s(t) = −16t2 − 40t + 555. Now s(t) = 0 when
√
t = 1 −5 + 2 145 ≈ 4.77 (s). The speed at impact is | v (t) | for that value of t; that is, 16 145 ≈ 192.6655
4
(ft/s), over 131 miles per hour.
C05S02.072: In this problem, v (t) = −gt and s(t) = − 1 gt2 + h. The rock strikes the ground when s(t) = 0,
2
√
so that t = 2h/g . The speed of the rock then is | − g 2h/g | = 2gh.
C05S02.073: Bomb equations: a = −32, v = −32t, sB = s = −16t2 + 800. Here we have t = 0 at the time
the bomb is released. Projectile equations: a = −32, v = −32(t − 2) + v0 , and
sP = s = 16(t − 2)2 + v0 (t − 2), t 2. We require sB = sP = 400 at the same time. The equation sB = 400 leads to t = 5, and for sP (5) = 400,
we must have v0 = 544/3 ≈ 181.33 (ft/s).
C05S02.074: Let x(t) denote the distance the car has traveled t seconds after the brakes are applied; let
v (t) denote its velocity and a(t) its acceleration at time t during the braking. Then we are given a = −40,
so v (t) = −40t + 88 (because 60 mi/h is the same speed as 88 ft/s). The car comes to a stop when v (t) = 0;
that is, when t = 2.2. The car travels the distance x(2.2) ≈ 96.8. Answer: 96.8 feet.
C05S02.075: The deceleration a = k > 0 is unknown at ﬁrst. But the velocity of the car is v (t) = −kt +88,
and so the distance it travels after the brakes are applied at time t = 0 is
1
x(t) = − kt2 + 88t.
2
7 But x = 176 when v = 0, so the stopping time t1 is 88/k because that is the time at which v = 0. Therefore
1
88
176 = − k
2
k 2 + (88) 88
k = 3872
.
k It follows that k = 22 (ft/s2 ), about 0.69g .
C05S02.076: Let x(t) be the altitude (in miles) of the spacecraft at time t (hours), with t = 0 corresponding
to the time at which the retrorockets are ﬁred; let v (t) = x (t) be the velocity of the spacecraft at time t.
Then v0 = −1000 and x0 is unknown. But the acceleration constant is a = +20000, so
v (t) = (20000)t − 1000 and x(t) = (10000)t2 − 1000t + x0 . We want v = 0 exactly when x = 0—call the time then t1 . Then 0 = (20000)t1 − 1000, so t1 = 1/20. Also
x(t1 ) = 0, so
0 = (10000) 1
400 − (1000) 1
20 + x0 . Therefore x0 = 50 − 25 = 25 miles. (Also t1 = 1/20 of an hour; that is, exactly three minutes.)
C05S02.077: (a): With the usual coordinate system, the ball has velocity v (t) = −32t + v0 (ft/s) at time
t (seconds) and altitude y (t) = −16t2 + v0 t (ft). We require y (T ) = 144 when v (T ) = 0: v0 = 32T , so
144 = −16T 2 + 32T 2 = 16T 2 ,
and thus T = 3 and v0 = 96. Answer: 96 ft/s.
(b): Now v (t) = − 26 t + 96, y (t) = − 13 t2 + 96t. Maximum height occurs when v (t) = 0: t =

13 Set up a coordinate system in which the Diana moves along the x-axis in the positive
dv
direction, with initial position x0 = 0 and initial velocity v0 = 0. Then
= +0.032 feet per second per
dt
second, so
C05S02.078: v (t) = (0.032)t + v0 = (0.032)t.
Thus
x(t) = (0.016)t2 + x0 = (0.016)t2 .
The units are in feet, seconds, and feet per second. After one minute we take t = 60 to ﬁnd that x(60) = 57.6
(feet). After one hour we take t = 3600 to ﬁnd that x(3600) = 207360 (ft)—over 39 miles. After one day we
take t = 86400; x(86400) = 119,439,360 (feet), approximately 22621 miles! At this point the speed of the
Diana would be v (86400) = 2764.8 feet per second, approximately 1885 miles per hour! After 30 days, the
Diana will have traveled well over 20 million miles and will be speeding along in excess of 56000 miles per
hour.
C05S02.079: Let a denote the deceleration constant of the car when braking. In the police experiment,
we have the distance the car travels from x0 = 0 at time t to be
8 1
22
x(t) = − at2 + 25 · t
2
15
(the factor 22 converts 25 miles per hour to feet per second). When we solve simultaneously the equations
15
x(t) = 45 and x (t) = 0, we ﬁnd that a = 1210 ≈ 14.938. When we use this value of a and substitute data
81
from the accident, we ﬁnd the position function of the car to be
x(t) = − 1 1210 2
·
t + v0 t
2 81 where v0√ its initial velocity. Now when we solve simultaneously x(t) = 210 and x (t) = 0, we ﬁnd that
is
v0 = 110 42 ≈ 79.209 feet per second, almost exactly 54 miles per hour.

b n c dx = lim n→∞ a c ∆xi
i=1 = lim c · (x1 − x0 + x2 − x1 + x3 − x2 + · · · + xn − xn−1 )
n→∞ = lim c(xn − x0 ) = c(b − a).
n→∞ The proof is similar in the case b < a.
C05S04.054: Given any partition P = {x0 , x1 , x2 , . . . , xn } of [0, 1] and any positive integer M , there is
a selection {xi } for P in which x1 = 1/M . The corresponding Riemann sum then satisﬁes the inequality
n f (xi ) ∆xi
i=1 f 1
M · (x1 − x0 ) = M (x1 − x0 ), which can be made artibrarily large by choosing M suﬃciently large. Hence some Riemann sums remain
arbitrariliy large as n → + ∞ and |P | → 0. Therefore the limit of Riemann sums for this function on this
interval does not exist. There is no contradiction to Theorem 1 because f is not continuous on [0, 1].
C05S04.055: Whatever partition P is given, a selection {xi } with all xi irrational can be made because
irrational numbers can be found in any interval of the form [ xi−1 , xi ] with xi−1 < xi . (An explanation of
why this is possible is given after the solution of Problem C02S04.069 of this manual.) For such a selection,
we have
n n f (xi ) ∆xi =
i=1 i=1 1 · ∆xi = 1 regardless of the choice of P or n. Similarly, by choosing xi rational for all i, we get
n n f (xi ) ∆xi =
i=1 i=1 0 · ∆xi = 0 regardless of the choice of P or n. Therefore the limit of Riemann sums for f on [0, 1] does not exist, and
therefore
1 f (x) dx does not exist. 0 C05S04.056: With ∆x = 5/n and xi = i ∆x = 5i/n, we have

partition with n or more subintervals lies within /3 of I2 . (This can be done by determining n1 for I1 , n2
for I2 , and letting n be the maximum of n1 and n2 .) Then every Riemann sum for f based on a regular

c lim Rn = n→∞ f (x) dx and b lim Sn = n→∞ a f (x) dx. c Then because Rn + Sn is a Riemann sum of norm less than (b − a)/n for f on [ a, b ], we have

To use part (2) of the fundamental theorem of calculus, ﬁrst compute

For an independent veriﬁcation, note that

8 = −4 + x2 − 20x − 64 + 160 = x2 − 20x + 92, and therefore g (10) = −8. Next, g (x) is increasing where f (x) > 0 and decreasing where f (x) < 0, so g is
increasing on (0, 4) and decreasing on (4, 10). The global maximum of g will therefore occur at (4, 8) and

(2π , 3π ), decreasing on (π , 2π ) and (3π , 4π ), so there are local minima at (0, 0), (2π , −2π ), and (4π , −4π );
there are local maxima at (π , π ) and (3π , 3π ). The global maximum occurs at (3π , 3π ) and the global
minimum occurs at (4π , −4π ). To ﬁnd the inﬂection points, we used Newton’s method to solve the equation
f (x) = 0 and found the x-coordinates of the inﬂection points—it’s clear from the graph that there are four
of them—to be approximately 2.028758, 4.913180, 7.978666, and 11.085538. (The values of f (x) at these

approximations), a local minimum at (2π , 1.418152), a local maximum at (3π , 1.674762), and a local minimum at (4π , 1.492161). Newton’s method gives the approximate coordinates of the points on the graph of
f where g has inﬂection points to be (4.493409, 0.017435), (7.725252, 0.017400), and (10.904122, 0.017348).

3 Editorial Comment (DEP): In my opinion a much better, faster, shorter, and more reliable method runs as
follows. Given
x x2 − 1 dx,
it should be evident that the antiderivative involves (x2 − 1)3/2 . Because
Dx (x2 − 1)3/2 = 32
(x − 1)1/2 · 2x = 3x x2 − 1,
2 the fact that if c is constant then Dx cf (x) = cf (x) now allows us to modify the initial guess (x2 − 1)3/2 for
the antiderivative by multiplying it by 1 . Therefore
3
x x2 − 1 dx = 12
(x − 1)3/2 + C.
3 All that’s necessary is to remember the constant of integration. Note that this technique is self-checking,
requires less time and space, and is immune to the dangers of various illegal substitutions. The computation
of the “correction factor” (in this case, 1 ) can usually be done mentally.

The initial guesses x0 = 2.1 and x0 = 9.8 produced (after seven iterations) the following solutions, accurate
to the number of digits shown:
r1 = 2.19561040829474667642305282648227; r2 = 9.77472510546165546062557839624217;
and a single integral yields a very good approximation to the area bounded by the two curves:

solutions, accurate to the number of digits shown here:

initial values, seven iterations of Newton’s method (carrying 60 digits initially) yields these four solutions of
f (x) = g (x), accurate to the number of digits shown here:

[ f (x0 ) + 4f (x1 ) + 2f (x2 ) + 4f (x3 ) + · · · + 4f (xn−1 ) + f (xn ) ] ≈ 0.993252 < 1.
3 The same computation with b = 2.8 yields Sn ≈ 1.02962 > 1, and this is enough to show that 2.7 < e < 2.8.
We can be sure of both inequalities because Simpson’s error estimate indicates that in each case the error is
less than
24 · (2.8 − 1)5
≈ 2.52 × 10−8 .
180 · 1004
5 2
C05S09.027: We have f (x) = 3 , so the constant in the error estimate is K2 = 2. With a = 1, b = 2,
x
and n subintervals, we require
K2 (b − a)3
< 0.0005,
12n2
which implies that n2 > 333.33 and thus that n > 18.2; n = 19 will suﬃce. (In fact, with only n = 13
subintervals, the trapezoidal estimate of 0.6935167303 diﬀers from the true value of ln 2 by less than 0.00037.)
C05S09.028: We have f (4) (x) = 24x−5 , so the constant in Simpson’s error estimate is K4 = 24. With
a = 1, b = 2, and n subintervals, we require
K4 (b − a)5
< 0.000005,
180n4
which implies that n2 > 26666.7 and thus that n > 12.78. Because n must be even, the answer is that n
should be 14. (With n = 14 subintervals, the diﬀerence between S14 ≈ 0.6931479839 and the true value of
ln 2 is less than 8.1 × 10−7 .)
C05S09.029: If p(x) = ax3 + bx2 + cx + d is a polynomial of degree 3 or smaller, then p(4) (x) ≡ 0, so
the constant K4 in Simpson’s error estimate is zero, which implies that the error will also be zero no matter
what the value of the even positive integer n may be.
C05S09.030: Let f (x) = (4 − 2x) − (6x2 − 7x) = 4+5x − 6x2 . Choose a = − 1 , b = 4 , n = 2, ∆x = (b − a)/n,

2 The result in Problem 31 follows immediately.
C05S09.032: With α = 10◦ (which we convert to radians) and
f (x) = 1
1 − (k sin x)2 , we use n = 10, a = 0, b = π /2, ∆x = (b − a)/n, and xi = i · ∆x and obtain
Sn = ∆x
· [ f (x0 ) + 4f (x1 ) + 2f (x2 ) + 4f (x3 ) + · · · + 4f (xn−1 ) + f (xn ) ] ≈ 1.5737921309.
3 We multiply by 4(L/g )1/2 to ﬁnd the period T of the pendulum to be approximately 2.0109178213 (seconds).
The same computation with α = 50◦ yields T ≈ 2.1070088018 (seconds). The limiting value of T as α → 0
is approximately 2.00709.
6 C05S09.033: Suppose ﬁrst that f (x) > 0 and f (x) > 0 for a x b. Then the graph of f is concave
upward on [ a, b ]. Now examine Fig. 5.9.11, where it is shown that the midpoint approximation is the same
as the tangent approximation. The tangent line will lie under the graph of f because the graph is concave
upward; the chord connecting (xi−1 , f (xi−1 )) and (xi , f (xi )) will lie over the graph. Hence every term in
the midpoint sum will underestimate the area under the graph of f and every term in the trapezoidal sum
will overestimate it. Thus
b Mn < f (x) dx < Tn a no matter what the choice of n. If f (x) < 0 on [ a, b ], then Figs. 5.9.11 and 5.9.12 show that the inequalities
will be reversed.

very little additional work.

ln(90000) ln(100000) ≈ 872.600. The ﬁrst is an underestimate and the second is an overestimate because the graph of y = 1/(ln x) is concave

2 x (1 − cos t) dt = t − sin t 0 = x − sin x. C05S0M.031: First convert 90 mi/h to 132 ft/s (just multiply by 22 ). Let x(t) denote the distance (in
15
feet) the automobile travels after its brakes are ﬁrst applied at time t = 0 (s). Then x(t) = −11t2 + 132t,
so the automobile ﬁrst comes to a stop when v (t) = x (t) = −22t + 132 = 0; that is, when t = 6. Therefore
the total distance it travels while braking will be x(6) = 396 (ft).
C05S0M.032: If the stone is dropped at time t = 0 (s), then its altitude at time t will be
y (t) = −11250t2 + 450 (ft). The stone reaches the ground when y (t) = 0, so that t = 1 . Its impact velocity will be x (t) = v (t) = −22500t
5
evaluated when t = 1 ; that is, v 1 = −4500 (ft/s). Thus the stone remains aloft for 0.2 s and its impact
5
5
speed will be 4500 ft/s.
C05S0M.033: Let v0 denote the initial velocity of the automobile and let x(t) denote the distance it has
skidded since its brakes were applied at time t = 0 (units are in feet and seconds). Then x(t) = −20t2 + v0 t.
Let T denote the time at which the automobile ﬁrst comes to a stop. Then
x(T ) = 180 and That is,
3 x (T ) = 0. −20T 2 + v0 T = 180 and − 40T + v0 = 0. The second of these equations implies that v0 = 40T , and substitution of this datum in the ﬁrst of these
equations yields −20T 2 + 40T 2 = 180, so that T 2 = 9. Thus T = 3, and therefore v0 = 120. Hence the
initial velocity of the automobile was 120 feet per second, slightly less than 82 miles per hour (slightly less
than 132 kilometers per hour).
C05S0M.034: Assume that the car begins its journey at time t = 0 and at position x = 0 (units are in
feet and seconds). Then x(t) = 4t2 because both initial position and initial velocity are zero. It will reach
a speed of 60 miles per hour—that is, 88 feet per second—when x (t) = 88; that is, when y = 11. At that
point the car will have traveled a distance of x(11) = 484 feet.
C05S0M.035: Let q denote the acceleration of gravity on the planet Zorg. First consider the ball dropped
from a height of 20 feet. Then its altitude at time t will be y (t) = − 1 qt2 + 20 (because its initial velocity
2
is v0 = 0). Then the information that x(2) = 0 yields the information that q = 10. Now suppose that the
ball is dropped from an initial height of 200 feet. Then its altitude√ time t will be y (t) = −5t2 + 200, so
at
the ball will reach then ground when 5t2 = 200; that is, when t = 2 10. Its velocity during its descent will
√
√
be v (t) = y (t) = −10t, so its impact velocity will be v 2 10 = −20 10 feet per second. Thus its impact
√
√
speed will be | v 2 10 | = 20 10 ≈ 63.25 feet per second.
C05S0M.036: First we need to ﬁnd the initial velocity v0 you can impart to the ball that you throw
straight upward. Let y (t) denote the altitude of the ball at time t (units are in feet and seconds), with
the throw occurring at time t = 0. Then y (t) = −16t2 + v0 t (we make the simplifying assumption that
y0 = y (0) = 0). The ball reaches its maximum height when its velocity v (t) = y (t) = −32t + v0 is zero; let
T denote the time at which that event occurs. Then
x(T ) = 144 when v (T ) = 0; that is, we must solve simultaneously the equations
−16T 2 + v0 T = 144 and − 32T + v0 = 0. The second of these equations yields v0 = 32T , and substitution in the ﬁrst yields −16T 2 + 32T 2 = 144, so
that T = 3, and thus v0 = 96.
We now assume that you can impart the same initial velocity to the ball on both Zorg and Mesklin
(the latter assumption is surely invalid, but it’s clearly the intent of the problem). On Zorg, the altitude
function of the ball will be y (t) = −5t2 + 96t, so its velocity will be v (t) = −10t + 96. The ball will reach
its maximum altitude when v (t) = 0, thus when t = 9.6. Thus the maximum altitude reached by the ball
will be y (9.6) = 460.8 (feet). On Mesklin, the altitude function of the ball will be y (t) = −11250t2 + 96t, so
its velocity at time t will be v (t) = −22500t + 96. The ball reaches its maximum altitude when v (t) = 0,
8
8
so that t = 1875 ≈ 0.004267 (seconds). Its maximum altitude will therefore be y 1875 = 128 = 0.2048 feet;
625
that is, only 2.4576 inches, a little less than 6.25 centimeters.
C05S0M.037: First we need to ﬁnd the deceleration constant a of the car. Let x(t) denote the distance (in
feet) the car has skidded at time t (in seconds) if its brakes are applied at time t = 0. Then x(t) = − 1 at2 +44t.
2
(We converted 30 miles per hour to 44 feet per second.) Thus in the ﬁrst skid, if the car ﬁrst comes to a
stop at time T , then both
x(T ) = 44 and
4 x (T ) = 0. Because the velocity of the car is v (t) = x (t) = −at + 44, we must solve simultaneously the equations
1
− aT 2 + 44T = 44
2
The second of these equations yields T = and − aT + 44 = 0. 44
, then substitution in the ﬁrst equation yields

a a = 22. Now suppose that the initial velocity of the car is 60 miles per hour; that is, 88 feet per second. With the
same meaning of x(t) as before, we now have x(t) = −11t2 + 88t. Thus v (t) = x (t) = −22t + 88, so the car
comes to a stop when t = 4. The distance it now skids will be x(t) = 176 feet. The point of the problem is
that doubling the initial speed of the car quadruples the stopping distance.
C05S0M.038: When the fuel is exhausted, the acceleration of the rocket is that solely due to gravity, so
the velocity stops increasing and begins to decrease. In Fig. 5.MP.1 this appears to occur about at time
t = 1.8. When the parachute opens, the velocity stops decreasing because of the upward force due to the
parachute; this appears to occur close to time t = 3.2. The rocket reached its maximum altitude when its
velocity was zero, close to time t = 2.8. The rocket landed at time t = 5. Its maximum height was about
240 feet and the pole atop which it landed was about 110 feet high. One of the more interesting aspects of
this problem is that during the free fall of the rocket, its velocity changed from about 200 feet per second at
time t = 1.8 to about −80 feet per second at time t = 3.2, implying that the acceleration of gravity on the
planet where this all took place is about 200 feet per second per second.

of calculus, Section 5.6) yields
2x = 2 1 + [ f (x)] , 2 so that 4x2 = 1 + [ f (x)] . Therefore if x > 1, one solution is f (x) = √ 4x2 − 1 . C05S0M.074: Let

Because all Riemann sums for f (x) = x2 on [ a, b ] have the same limit, this must be the same limit as
the limit of the particular Riemann sums of this problem. This shows that

let ∆t = 365/n, and let ti be a point in [ ti−1 , ti ] for 1 i n. Then the approximate rainfall in Charleston
in the time interval ti−1 t ti will be r (ti ) ∆t. Hence the total rainfall in a year will be approximately

piecewise continuous) then these Riemann sums approach R as a limit (as n → + ∞). Thus R gives the
average total annual rainfall in Charleston.

into the tank in the interval [ ti−1 , ti ] will be approximately r (ti ) ∆t. Hence the total amount of water that
ﬂows into the tank between times t = a and t = b will be approximately
n r (ti ) ∆t.
i=1 The error in this approximation will approach zero as t → + ∞, and the sum itself is a Riemann sum for r(t)

C06S02.044: Consider a cross section of the pyramid parallel to its base and at distance x from the vertex
of the pyramid. Similar triangles show that the length y and width z of this cross section are proportional
to x, so that its area is f (x) = kx2 . Moreover, f (h) = A, so that kh2 = A, and therefore k = A/(h2 ). Thus

triangular cross section is
1
4 (p + q + r)(p + q − r)(p − q + r)(q + r − p) , and thus the area g (x) of this triangular cross section is proportional to x2 ; that is, g (x) = kx2 for some
constant k . But g (h) = A, which tells us that kh2 = A and thus that k = A/(h2 ). So the total volume of

3 C06S02.046: Set up a coordinate system in which the origin is at the center of the sphere and the
sphere-with-hole is symmetric around the y -axis. Then a horizontal cross section of the solid “at” location
y is an annular region with inner radius 3 and outer radius x = 25 − y 2 . Therefore the volume of the

3 As an independent check, the volume of the sphere-without-hole is about 523.598776.
C06S02.047: Set up a coordinate system in which one cylinder has axis the x-axis and the other has axis
the y -axis. Introduce a z -axis perpendicular to the xy -plane and passing through (0, 0). We will ﬁnd the
volume of the eighth of the intersection that lies in the ﬁrst octant, where x, y , and z are nonnegative, then
multiply by 8 to ﬁnd the answer.
7 A cross section of the eighth perpendicular to the z -axis (thus parallel to the xy -plane) is a square; if
this cross section meets the z -axis at z , then one of its edges lies in the yz -plane and reaches from the z -axis
(where y = 0) to the side of the cylinder symmetric around the x-axis. That cylinder has equation the same
as the equation as the circle in which it meets the yz -plane: y 2 + z 2 = a2 . Hence the edge of the square
√
under consideration has length y = a2 − z 2 . So the area of the square cross section “at” z is a2 − z 2 . So
the volume of the eighth of the solid in the ﬁrst octant is

As an independent check, it’s fairly easy to see that the sphere of radius a centered at the origin is

C06S02.048: Set up a coordinate system in which the center of the sphere is located at the origin and
the ﬂat part of the spherical segment is perpendicular to the y -axis. Now consider a cross section of the
spherical segment, lying between y = r − h and y = r on the y -axis, and “at” location y . This cross section
is a circular disk of radius x = r2 − y 2 , so its has cross-sectional area π (r2 − y 2 ). Therefore the volume of
the spherical segment will be

meets the “test of extremes,” known in the past as “the exception that proves the rule,” which in modern
translation would be “the exceptional case that tests the rule.” Speciﬁcally, V (0) = 0, V (r) = 2 π r3 , and

V (2r) = 4 π r3 , exactly as should be the case.

C06S02.049: The cross section of the torus perpendicular to the y -axis “at” y is an annular ring with
outer radius x = b + a2 − y 2 and inner radius x = b − a2 − y 2 , a consequence of the fact that the circular
disk that generates the torus has equation (x − b)2 + y 2 = a2 . So the cross section has area
π b+ a2 − y 2 2 a2 − y 2 − b− 2 = 4π b a2 − y 2 . Therefore the volume of the torus is
V = 4π b a

which is a constant. That is, the water level falls at a constant rate. To use the clepsydra as a clock (as it was
used in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome), put a ruler vertically in the clepsydra. The ancient Egyptians
were so sophisticated with these clocks that they had diﬀerent rulers for diﬀerent water temperatures, as
the less viscous warm water would run out at a slightly greater (but still constant) rate. According to the
American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language (Boston: Houghton Miﬄin, 1969, 1970), the name of
the device is derived from the Greek word klepsudra, “water stealer” (from the “stealthy” ﬂow of the water),
from the words kleptein, “to steal” (an English relative is kleptomania) and hud or, “water” (an English
relative is hydrosphere ).

C06S02.054: Please don’t give this solution away, particularly to a diﬀerential equations student. Note
ﬁrst that if V (t) is the volume of water in the bowl at time t, then dV /dt = −k · A(t) where k is a positive
constant. Let y (t) be the depth of water in the bowl at time t. Consider the time interval [ t, t + ∆t ]. Assume
that the water level drops by the amount ∆y . Then the change in the volume of water in the bowl is
∆V ≈ A(t) ∆y
where A(t) is the area of the water surface at time t. Thus

C06S02.055: First “ﬁnish” the frustum; that is, complete the cone of which it is a frustum. We measure
all distances from the vertex of the completed cone and perpendicular to the bases of the frustum. Let H be
the height of the cone and suppose that H − h y H , so that a cross section of the cone at distance y from
its vertex is a circular cross section of the frustum. The area A(y ) of such a cross section is proportional to
the square of its radius, which is proportional to y 2 , so that A(y ) = ky 2 where k is a positive proportionality

the region R common to the two circles shown in the following ﬁgure.
y (a,0) Radius a x Radius b < a

right, of radius b < a and centered at (a, 0), has equation (x − a)2 + y 2 = b2 . The x-coordinate of their two
points of intersection can be found by solving

Suppose that C is the circle of radius r centered at the origin and that 0 < h < r. Let us ﬁnd the volume

the boundary of D has equation (x − b)2 + y 2 = a2 where 0 < a b. Thus D has its center at (b, 0) on the
positive x-axis. If b − a x b + a, then a vertical slice through D at x has height 2 a2 − (x − b)2 , and
so the volume of the torus is

C06S03.040: The two curves meet at (−1, 1) and (2, 4) and the graph of the linear equation is above that
of the quadratic for −1 < x < 2. If a vertical strip of the region R they bound, above the point x on the

of radius x + 1. Hence the volume of the solid generated in part (a) is

changing the value of an integrable function at two points cannot change the fact of its integrability nor can
it change the value of the deﬁnite integral.

zone. You can also “test” the answer by substituting the value 2r for h.

Let n be a positive integer and let P = {y0 , y1 , y2 , . . . , yn } be a partition of the interval [ a, b ]. Let
S = {y1 , y2 , . . . , yn } be a selection for P . Consider the liquid in the tank between the levels yi−1 and yi

between yi−1 and yi will be approximately ρA(yi ) ∆yi (where ∆yi = yi − yi−1 ) and this liquid must be

of length 10 and width 2x where x and y satisfy the equation x2 + y 2 = 9 of the end of the tank, and thus

the top of the building at y = 100. When the bottom of the rope has been lifted to position y (0 y 100),
then the weight of the part of the rope still dangling from the top is (100 − y )/4 (pounds). The work required
to lift the rope a short distance ∆y is approximately 1 (100 − y ) ∆y , and therefore the total work to lift the

prefer the alternative of partitioning the rope. Imagine a short section of the rope near position y and of
length ∆y . This section of rope weighs 1 ∆y pounds and will be lifted the distance 100 − y to the top of
4
the building, so the work to lift this short section of rope will be 1 (100 − y ) ∆y . So the total work to lift all

such short sections of the rope will be exactly the same as that shown in Eq. (1).
Finally, the answer may be checked in the following way: Stiﬀen the rope and turn it 90◦ around its
center (where y = 50). This requires no net work as the rope will balance at its center. Then lift the 25-lb
rope 50 feet to the top of the building, requiring 25 · 50 = 1250 ft·lb of work.

V1 C06S05.023: Given: pV 1.4 = c. When p1 = 200, V1 = 50. Hence
c = 200 · 507/5 = 200 · 507/5 , so c p= V 7/5 = 200 · 50
V 7 /5 . Therefore the work done by the engine in each cycle is

dV = 200 · 507/5 · − V −2/5
2 = 2500(10 − 103/5 ) ≈ 15047.320736. 50 The answer is in “inch-pounds” (in.·lb); divide by 12 to convert the answer into W ≈ 1253.94339468 footpounds.
C06S05.024: Set up a coordinate system in which the center of the hemisphere is at the origin, with
a diameter lying on the x-axis and the y -axis perpendicular to the base, so that the highest point of the
hemisphere has coordinates (0, 60). Now imagine a horizontal thin circular slice of its contents at position
y and having radius x, so that x2 + y 2 = 3600. If the thickness of this slice is dy , then its volume is
dV = π 3600 − y 2 dy , so its weight is 40π 3600 − y 2 dy . This is the force acting on the slice, which is
to be lifted a distance 60 − y , so the work used in lifting this slice is 40π 3600 − y 2 (60 − y ) dy . Therefore
the total work to pump all the liquid to the level of the top of the tank is
60 W=
0 1 C06S05.025: W =

60π (1 − y ) y dy = 16π ≈ 50.265482 (ft·lb). C06S05.026: Set up a coordinate system in which the center of the tank is at the origin and the ground
surface coincides with the horizontal line y = −3. Imagine a horizontal cross section of the tank at position
y , −3 y ≤ 3. The equation of the circle x2 + y 2 = 9 gives us the width 2x of this rectangular cross section:
1 /2
2x = 2 9 − y 2
. The length of the cross section is 20, so if we denote its thickness by dy then its volume is 40 9 − y 2 1 /2 dy . To ﬁll this slab with gasoline weighing 40 pounds per cubic foot, which is to be lifted the distance y + 3 feet, requires dW = 1600(y + 3) 9 − y 2
the tank is
W= 3
−3 1600(y + 3) 9 − y 2 = 1600 3

−3 9 − y2
3 /2 1 /2 dy. The ﬁrst integral is zero because it involves the evaluation of 9 − y 2
at y = 3 and at y = −3. The
second is the product of 4800 and the area of a semicircle of radius 3, so the answer is that the total work
is 21600π ≈ 67858.401318 ft·lb.
4 C06S05.027: It is convenient to set up a coordinate system in which the center of the tank is at the
origin, the x-axis horizontal, and the y -axis vertical. A horizontal cross section at y is circular with radius
x satisfying x2 + y 2 = 144, so the work to ﬁll the tank is
W= 12
−12 (50π )(y + 12) 144 − y 2 dy = π 86400y + 3600y 2 − 200y 3 − = 950400π − (−432000π ) = 1382400π ≈ 4.342938 × 106 25 4

of the cage, and y = 40 to its top. The work done in lifting the monkey from y = 0 to y = 40 is 20 · 40 = 800
ft·lb. Now we compute the work done in lifting the chain. Suppose that the free end of the chain is lifted from y = 0 to y = 10 and is at position y . Then the
length of chain lifted is y , so its weight is 1 y . Then the free end of the chain is lifted from y = 10 to y = 40.
2
When the free end is at position y , part of the chain is doubled; let z denote the length of each part that is
doubled. The length of the part of the chain not doubled is 40 − y . So 40 − y + 2z = 50, and it follows that
z = 5 + 1 y . So the weight of the chain lifted is 1 z = 5 + 1 y . Hence the work done to lift the chain is

weight of the string in pounds to obtain the answer in ft·lb.

at the points (1, 0), (−1, 0), (2, 3), and (−2, 3). Because the width of a horizontal section at height y is

C06S05.035: Let ρ = 62.4 lb/ft3 and set up a coordinate system in which the y -axis is vertical and y = 0
is the location of the bottom of the square gate. Then the pressure at a horizontal cross section of the plate

C06S05.037: Let ρ denote the density of water, as usual. Place the origin at the low vertex of the triangular

The vertical face occupies the interval 0

If yi lies in this interval, then the strip on the slanted face opposite [ yi−1 , yi ] has approximate depth 100 − yi .
So the total force of water on this strip—acting normal to the slanted face—is

where ρ = 62.4 lb/ft3 is the density of the water. Therefore the total force the water exerts on the slanted

V = 2π xA = 2π My = 1
(r1 + r2 ), so the lateral area is

(r + r1 r2 + r2 ).
31 r 1 + r2
2 (r2 − r1 )2 + h2 1 /2 = π (r1 + r2 )L. C06S06.028: The lateral surface is generated by rotating around the axis of the cylinder a vertical line of
length h. Its midpoint is at (r, h/2) and the radius of the circle around which the midpoint moves is r, so
the lateral surface area is A = (2π r)h. Alternatively, from Problem 27,
A = π (r1 + r2 )L = 2π rh.
C06S06.029: The semicircular region has centroid (x, y ) where x = 0 (by symmetry) and y = b +

Mx = b+ 4a
3π · 4a
(by

2 For the rectangle, we have
Mx = b

2 The sum of these two moments is the moment of the entire region:

2 Mx =
When we divide this moment by the area 2ab +
y= 12
π a of the entire region, we ﬁnd that
2 4a2 + 3π ab + 6b2
.
12b + 3π a Of course x = 0 by symmetry.
For Part (b), we use the fact that the radius of the circle of rotation is y , so the volume generated by
rotation around the x-axis is
V = 2π yA = 2π y 2ab + 12

60 C06S06.034: We let f (x) = xm and g (x) = xn . Then we used Mathematica 3.0:

1+m 1+n Then we compute the moments:
My = Integrate[ x∗(f[x] − g[x]), { x, 0, 1 } ];
Mx = Integrate[ (1/2)∗( (f[x])∧2 − (g[x])∧2 ), { x, 0, 1 } ];
Thus the centroid has coordinates
{ xc, yx } = { My/A, Mx/A } // Simplify
{ (1 + m)(1 + n)
1 + m + n + mn
,
}
(2 + m)(2 + n) 1 + 2m + 2n + 4mn
8 For selected values of m and with n = m + 1 we check to see if it’s True that the centroid lies within the
region:
m = 1; n = m + 1;
yc < xc∧m
yc > xc∧n
True
True
m = 2; n = m + 1;
yc < xc∧m
yc > xc∧n
True
True
m = 3; n = m + 1;
yc < xc∧m

Therefore if m = 3 and n = 4, then the centroid does not lie within the region. 9 Section 6.7

(ln 3)(ln 2) C06S07.033: Taking logarithms transforms the equation R = kW m into ln R = ln k + m ln W , an equation
linear in the two unknown coeﬃcients ln k and m. We put the data given in Fig. 6.7.13 into the array
datapoints = { {25, 131}, {67, 103}, {127, 88}, {175, 81}, {240, 75}, {975, 53} }, then entered the Mathematica command logdatapoints = N[Log[datapoints], 10]
to obtain the logarithms of the values of W and R to ten signiﬁcant ﬁgures. We then set up the graph
pts = ListPlot[ logdatapoints ];
to see if the data points lay on a straight line. They very nearly did. Next we used Mathematica’s Fit
command to ﬁnd the coeﬃcients of the equation of the straight line that best ﬁt the data points (by minimizing the sum of the squares of the deviations of the data points from the straight line—see Miscellaneous
Problem 51 of Chapter 13). The command
Fit[ logdatapoints, {1, x}, x ] ﬁnds the best-ﬁtting linear combination a · 1 + b · x to the given data. The result was
5.67299196 − 0.24730011 x which told us that ln k ≈ 5.67299, so that k ≈ 290.903, and that m ≈ − 0.2473. Thus we obtained the
formula R = (290.903) · W −0.2473 . This formula predicts the following values for R:

logarithms of the data points had equation y = 3.87045 − (1.39711)x, so that k = exp(3.87045) ≈ 47.9640 and
m ≈ −1.39711. Thus we found the formula p = (47.9640)V −1.39711 . The agreement with the experimental
data was even better than in Problem 33. The best-ﬁtting straight line and the logarithms of the data points
are shown next.

the graphs of f and g are plotted with the same coordinate axes, it becomes evident that the other point
of intersection has x-coordinate near x0 = 1.6. We applied Newton’s method to h(x) = f (x) − g (x) and
found the sequence x1 = 1.5789150927, x2 = 1.5786206934, and x3 = x4 = a = 1.5786206361 of improving
approximations. Because f (x) > g (x) if 0 < x < a, the area bounded by the graphs of f and g is

f (x) − g (x) = 0 with initial estimate x0 = 1.6). There we saw also that f (x) > g (x) if 0 < x < a. So the

the equation f (x) − g (x) = 0 using these values as initial estimates and obtained the following results:

10 The solution of θ (x) = 0 certainly maximizes θ because θ is near zero if x is near zero and if x is large
positive. We solve θ (x) = 0:
4(x2 + 16) = x2 + 256; 3x2 = 192; x2 = 64; x = 8. Answer: The billboard should be placed so that it will be 8 meters (horizontal distance) from the eyes of
passing motorists. Many alert students have pointed out that such a billboard wouldn’t be visible long
enough to be eﬀective. This illustrates that once you have used mathematics to solve a problem, you must
interpret the results!
C06S08.066: As in the ﬁgure that follows this solution, assume that the observer’s eyes are at the height
L above the ﬂoor and at horizontal distance W from the painting. Let h be the height of the painting and
let y be the distance from the ﬂoor to the bottom of the painting. We are to maximize the angle θ = θ1 + θ2
where
θ1 = arctan y+h−L
W and θ2 = arctan L−y
.
W With the aid of the arctangent addition formula (part (a) of Problem 64) we ﬁnd—after simpliﬁcations—that
θ(y ) = arctan Wh
.
W 2 + (y − L)(y − L + h) (1) Now θ is maximized when tan θ is maximized (because the tangent function is increasing on (0, π /2)), and
this occurs when the denominator of the fraction in Eq. (1) is minimal. So we let f (y ) = W 2 +(y −L)(y −L+h)
and apply calculus:
f (y ) = y − L + y − L + h = 2y − 2L + h;
f (y ) = 0 when y =L− h
.

the side of the frustum should not be part of the graph of y = mx, even though this would seem to yield the
simplest choice. In each case, both the method of cross sections and the method of cylindrical shells lead
to diﬃculties. Here’s the simplest solution we’ve found. Write r for r1 and s for r2 . Sketch a trapezoid in

cone “at” z (thus at distance z from P ) is an ellipse with major axis and minor axis each proportional to z .

A(h) = kh2 = π ab

vertex of the triangle is at the origin, there is a vertex in the ﬁrst quadrant at (a, b), and a vertex in the
second quadrant at (−a, c). Thus the y -axis passes through the midpoint of the side opposite the vertex at
the origin, and hence a median of the triangle lies on the y -axis. We will show that the y -coordinate of the
centroid also lies on the y -axis. Then, by rotating the triangle to plane the other two vertices at the origin
in a similar way, we may conclude that y lies on all three medians. Then interchange the roles of x and y to
conclude that x lies on the intersection of the medians as well.
The left side of the triangle has equation y = h(x) = −cx/a, the right side has equation y = g (x) = bx/a,
and the top side has equation
y = f (x) = b + b−c
(x − a).

moment to the left of the y -axis and MR its moment to the right. Now

mx = Integrate[ (1/2)*((f[x])∧2 - (g[x])∧2), { x, 0, 1 } ];

33 Obviously this is the centroid of the triangle with vertices (0, 0), (1, 0), and (1, 1)—which the area of the
region bounded by the graphs of f and g “exhausts” as n → + ∞.
C06S0M.052: By Example 1 in Section 6.6, the semicircular disk has area and centroid
a1 = 9∗Pi/2; c1 = { 0, 4/Pi };
Hence its moment with respect to the x-axis is
mx1 = a1∗c1[[2]]
18 (Recall that the Mathematica command list[[n]] extracts the n th entry from the k -dimensional array
list = { a1, a2, a3, . . . , ak }.)
The square are area and centroid
a2 = 4;
14 c2 = { 0, −1 };
so its moment with respect to the x-axis is
mx2 = a2∗c2[[2]]
−4 Therefore the region R has area and x-moment
a = a1 + a2

mx = mx1 + mx2

So the y -coordinate of its centroid is

N[yc]

The radius of revolution around the line y = −4 is
r = 4 + yc // Together

So the volume of revolution is

But this value of t is negative, and in addition f (t) < 0 for all larger values of t. Thus the revenue is a

testing positive is 1 − (0.99)x , so the expected number of lots that require additional tests will be the product
of the number of lots and the probability 1 − (0.99)x that a lot tests positive. Hence the total number of

17 The form of the last equation is exactly what we need to implement the method of repeated substitution
(see Problems 23 through 25 of Section 3.9 of the regular edition, Section 3.10 of the early transcendentals
version, of the text). We substitute our ﬁrst “guess” x0 = 10 into the right-hand side of the last equation,
thus obtaining a “better” (we hope) value x1 and continue this process until the digits in these successive
approximations stabilize. Results: x1 = 10.488992, x2 = 10.514798, x3 = 10.516161, x4 = 10.516233, and
x5 = 10.516237 = x6 . The method is not as fast as Newton’s method but the formula is simpler. (The
graph of y = f (x) follows this solution to convince you that we have actually found the minimum value of
f .) We must use an integral number of samples, so we ﬁnd that f (10) ≈ 195.618 and f (11) = 195.571, so
there should be 90 lots of 11 samples each and one lot of 10 for the most economical results. Alternatively,
it might be simpler to use 10 samples in every lot; the extra cost would be only about 24 cents. The total
cost of the batch method will be about $978, signiﬁcantly less than the $5000 cost of testing each sample
individually.

A = 0 and kB = 1, so A = 0 and B = 1/k .
C06S0M.113: The graphs of y = cos x and y = sech x are shown following this solution, graphed for

6. One wonders if there is a solution of cos x = sech x in the interval (0, π /2). We graphed
y = f (x) = sech x − cos x for 0 x 1 and it was clear that f (x) > 0 if x > 0.25. We graphed y = f (x)
for 0
x
0.25 and it was clear that f (x) > 0 if x > 0.06. We repeated this process several times and
could see that f (x) > 0 if x > 0.0002. Instability in the hardware or software made further progress along
these lines impossible. Methods of Section 7.8 can be used to show the desired inequality, but Ted Shifrin
provided the following elegant argument.
First, sech x 1 sec x if x is in I = [0, π /2). Moreover, sech x = sec x only for x = 0 in that interval;
otherwise, sech x < sec x for x in J = (0, π /2). So sech2 x < sec2 x if x is in J .
But tanh x = tan x if x = 0. Therefore tanh x < tan x for x in J because Dx tanh x < Dx tan x for
such x. That is,
sinh x
sin x
<
cosh x
cos x
if x is in J . All the expressions involved here are positive, so
sinh x cos x < cosh x sin x
if x is in J . That is,
− cosh x sin x + sinh x cos x < 0 for x in J . But cosh x cos x = 1 if x = 0, and we have now shown that Dx (cosh x cos x) < 0 if x is in J .
Therefore
cosh x cos x < 1
for x in J . In other words, sech x cos x for x in I and sech x > cos x for x in J . Because cos x
0 < sech x for π /2 < x < 3π /2 and because cos x is increasing, while sech x is
decreasing, for 3π /2 x < 2π , it follows that the least positive solution of f (x) = 0 is slightly larger than
3π /2, about 4.7, exactly as the ﬁgure suggests.
We then applied Newton’s method to the solution of f (x) = 0 with x0 = 4.7, with the following results:
x1 ≈ 4.7300338216, x2 ≈ 4.7300407449, x3 ≈ 4.7300407449. Thus x3 is a good approximation to the least
positive solution of cos x cosh x = 1.

sec x dx = sinh−1 (tan x) + C

ﬁnd that
sec x dx = − sinh−1 (tan x) + C.

minimum value of F (x) is
F (4) = 2 − ln 4 = 2 − 2 ln 2 > 2 − 2 · 1
because ln 2 < 1. Therefore f (x) > ln x for all x > 0.
For part (b), we need to solve x1/3 − ln x = 0. The iteration of Newton’s method takes the form
