Unformatted text preview: roberts (eer474) – Quest HW 5 – seckin – (56425) 1 This print-out should have 14 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Determine the derivative of f when f ( x ) = x 2 sin x + 2 x cos x . 1. f ′ ( x ) = ( x 2 + 2) sin x 2. f ′ ( x ) =- ( x 2 + 2) sin x 3. f ′ ( x ) =- ( x 2 + 2) cos x 4. f ′ ( x ) = ( x 2 + 2) cos x correct 5. f ′ ( x ) = ( x 2- 2) cos x 6. f ′ ( x ) =- ( x 2- 2) sin x Explanation: By the Product Rule, f ′ ( x ) = 2 x sin x + x 2 cos x + 2 cos x- 2 x sin x . Consequently, f ′ ( x ) = ( x 2 + 2) cos x . 002 10.0 points Find the value of f ′ (0) when f ( x ) = (1- 3 x ) − 4 . Correct answer: 12. Explanation: Using the chain rule and the fact that ( x α ) ′ = α x α − 1 , we obtain f ′ ( x ) = 12 (1- 3 x ) 5 . At x = 0, therefore, f ′ (0) = 12 . 003 10.0 points Determine f ′ ( x ) when f ( x ) = x 2 / 3 ( x- 2) 1 / 3 . 1. f ′ ( x ) = 3 x- 4 3 x 2 / 3 ( x- 2) 1 / 3 2. f ′ ( x ) = 3 x- 4 3 x 1 / 3 ( x- 2) 2 / 3 correct 3. f ′ ( x ) = x- 2 3 x 1 / 3 ( x- 2) 2 / 3 4. f ′ ( x ) = 3 x + 2 3 x 2 / 3 ( x- 2) 1 / 3 5. f ′ ( x ) = 3 x- 2 3 x 2 / 3 ( x- 2) 1 / 3 6. f ′ ( x ) = x + 4 3 x 1 / 3 ( x- 2) 2 / 3 Explanation: By the Chain and Product Rules, f ′ ( x ) = 2 3 x − 1 / 3 ( x- 2) 1 / 3 + 1 3 x 2 / 3 ( x- 2) − 2 / 3 = 1 3 braceleftBigg 2( x- 2) 1 / 3 x 1 / 3 + x 2 / 3 ( x- 2) 2 / 3 bracerightBigg . Bringing the right hand side to a common denominator we thus see that f ′ ( x ) = 2( x- 2)+ x 3 x 1 / 3 ( x- 2) 2 / 3 . roberts (eer474) – Quest HW 5 – seckin – (56425) 2 Consequently, f ′ ( x ) = 3 x- 4 3 x 1 / 3 ( x- 2) 2 / 3 ....
