Unformatted text preview: Version 074 Exam02 Gilbert (56215) 1 This printout should have 12 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Find the interval(s) where f ( x ) = x 3 + 9 x 2 + 6 is increasing. 1. ( , 3) , (3 , ) 2. ( , 6] , [0 , ) correct 3. [ 3 , 0] 4. ( , 3] , [0 , ) 5. [ 6 , 0] 6. ( , 6) , (6 , ) Explanation: The function f will be increasing on an interval [ a, b ] (resp. ( , b ] or [ a, )) when f > 0 on ( a, b ) (resp. ( , b ) or ( a, )), i.e. , on those values of x for which f ( x ) = 3 x 2 + 18 x = 3 x ( x + 6) > . Consequently, f will be increasing on ( , 6] , [0 , ) . 002 10.0 points Find all asymptotes of the graph of y = 3 x 2 16 x + 16 x 2 5 x + 4 . 1. vertical: x = 1 , horizontal: y = 3 2. vertical: x = 4 , horizontal: y = 3 3. vertical: x = 4 , horizontal: y = 3 4. vertical: x = 1 , 4 , horizontal: y = 3 5. vertical: x = 1 , horizontal: y = 3 cor rect 6. vertical: x = 1 , 4 , horizontal: y = 3 7. vertical: x = 1 , horizontal: y = 3 Explanation: After factorization y = (3 x 4)( x 4) ( x 1)( x 4) . Thus y is not defined at x = 4, but for x negationslash = 4 y = 3 x 4 x 1 ; notice, however, that lim x 4 3 x 4 x 1 = 8 3 exists, so the graph does not have a vertical asymptote at x = 4. Since vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle 3 x 4 x 1 vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle as x 1 from the left and the right, the line x = 1 will, however, be a vertical asymptote. On the other hand, lim x 3 x 4 x 1 = 3 , so y = 3 will be a horizontal aymptote. Hence the graph has only the following asymptotes vertical: x = 1 , horizontal: y = 3. 003 10.0 points Determine which of the following graphs could be that of f ( x ) = 3 + 2 x 2 1 + x 2 .
