Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points After spending $ x in advertising per day, a McDonalds restaurant finds that it sells N hamburgers where N = 1400 + 170 x 5 x 2 . Estimate using differentials how many more hamburgers the restaurant will sell if it in creases its daily spending on advertising from $10 to $10 . 40. 1. 29 more hamburgers 2. 27 more hamburgers 3. 28 more hamburgers correct 4. 26 more hamburgers 5. 25 more hamburgers Explanation: After differentiation, N ′ ( x ) = 170 10 x. If x is increased by $Δ x , then the approximate increase, Δ N , in N will thus be given by Δ N ≈ N ′ ( x ) Δ x = (170 10 x ) Δ x. When x = 10 and Δ x = . 4, therefore, the McDonalds restaurant can expect to sell approximately 28 more hamburgers. 002 10.0 points Estimate the value of 15 1 / 4 using differen tials. 1. 15 1 / 4 ≈ 65 32 2. 15 1 / 4 ≈ 33 16 3. 15 1 / 4 ≈ 63 32 correct 4. 15 1 / 4 ≈ 31 16 5. 15 1 / 4 ≈ 2 Explanation: Set f ( x ) = x 1 / 4 . Then df dx = 1 4 x 3 / 4 . By differentials, therefore, we see that f ( a + Δ x ) f ( a ) ≈ df dx vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle x = a Δ x = Δ x 4 a 3 / 4 . Thus, with a = 16 and Δ x = 1, 15 1 / 4 2 ≈  1 32 . Consequently, 15 1 / 4 ≈ 63 32 . 003 10.0 points Find the differential, dy , of y = f ( x ) = tan(3 x 2 ) . 1. dy = 6 x sec 2 (3 x ) + dx 2. dy = 3 sec 2 (3 x 2 ) tan(3 x 2 ) 3. dy = 3 sec 2 (3 x 2 ) tan(3 x 2 ) dx 4. dy = 6 x sec 2 (3 x 2 ) dx correct 5. dy = 3 sec 2 (3 x 2 ) tan(3 x 2 ) + dx mandel (tgm245) – HW08 – Radin – (56470) 2 6. dy = 6 x sec 2 (3 x 2 ) Explanation: The differential, dy , of y = f ( x ) is given by dy = f ′ ( x ) dx . On the other hand, d dx tan x = sec 2 x . Thus by the Chain Rule, f ′ ( x ) = 6 x sec 2 (3 x 2 ) . Consequently, dy = 6 x sec 2 (3 x 2 ) dx . keywords: differential, trig function, tan func tion, Chain Rule, 004 10.0 points Find the linearization of f ( x ) = 1 √ 6 + x at x = 0. 1. L ( x ) = 1 √ 6 1 6 x 2. L ( x ) = 1 √ 6 + 1 6 x 3. L ( x ) = 1 √ 6 parenleftBig 1 1 12 x parenrightBig correct 4. L ( x ) = 1 6 parenleftBig 1 1 6 x parenrightBig 5. L ( x ) = 1 √ 6 parenleftBig 1 + 1 12 x parenrightBig 6. L ( x ) = 1 6 parenleftBig 1 + 1 12 x parenrightBig Explanation: The linearization of f is the function L ( x ) = f (0) + f ′ (0) x . But for the function f ( x ) = 1 √ 6 + x = (6 + x ) − 1 / 2 , the Chain Rule ensures that f ′ ( x ) = 1 2 (6 + x ) − 3 / 2 . Consequently, f (0) = 1 √ 6 , f ′ (0) = 1 12 √ 6 , and so L ( x ) = 1 √ 6 parenleftBig 1 1 12 x parenrightBig ....
