1 1. [10 Marks] Find the largest domain of the function f(1:) 2 —..
7r — 6 arcs1nzc Express your answer using interval notation. Solution The domain of arcsina: is [71, 1]. The domain of f are the numbers in this interval for which 71' the denominator of f($) is nonzero. Note 7r — Garcsinx 2 0 when arcsinzr 2 3’ i.e. when :6 2 %. Thus
the domain of f is {—16} U 6,1]. 2. [15 Marks] f is the function with domain [0, 00) deﬁned by ﬂax) 2 (a) Show f is one—to—one. Solution Assume f(a:1) 2 f(a:2). Then 1+;t2' 1 1 1+x§ : 1+x§ Hag? = Has;

Thus f is one2t02one. (b) Find the domain of f ‘1. Express your answer in interval notation. Solution The domain of f’1 is the range of f which consists for all positive numbers less than or equal
to f(0) 2 1. Thus the domain of f’1 is (0,1]. (c) Find the formula for f ‘1.

56 5. (a) [10 Marks] State the Intermediate Value Theorem. Solution Let f be a continuous function with domain an interval I. If A and B are in the range of f,
with A < B7 then the range of f contains the entire interval [14, B]. (b) [15 Marks] Does the Intermediate Value Theorem apply to the function f (r) = g for or 75 O.
J USTIFY YOUR ANSWER. Solution The domain of f consists of all nozero numbers which is not an interval. Therefore, the
Intermediate Value Theorem does not apply to f. 6. [15 Marks] Determine the values of as for which the function below is continuous, has a removable discontinuity or has an essential discontinuity.
J UST IFY YOUR ANSWERS. 1le if ac # 0 and a? is rational f(;,;): 1 if$:0 x2 if ac is irrational Solution Note all equals +1 if a: > 0 and equals —1 if :v < 0. See the graph off below.
Therefore the leftehand limit at a: : 0 and the rightehand limit at at : 0 do not exist. Hence f has an essential discontinuity at a: = 0.
When 00 < 0, note 902 > 0 while I:—1 : 71. Hence lim f (m) DNE for every 0 < 0 and f has an essential m—m discontinuity at every (2 < 0.
