Def. The normal line to a curve at a point P is the line through P that is perpendicular to the tangent line at P . Find the equation of the normal line to f ( x ) = 3 p x at x = ± 1.
Constant Multiple Rule If c is a constant and f is di±erentiable then d dx ( c f ( x )) = Sum and Di±erence Rules If f and g are both di±erentiable, d dx [ f ( x ) ± g ( x )] = This can be extended to

Unformatted text preview: tangent lines. Derivatives of Exponential Functions Consider d dx f ( x ) where f ( x ) = a x : f ( x ) = lim h ! Since f (0) = lim h ! then f ( x ) = What does this say about the rate of change of any exponential? If a = 2, f (0) = lim h ! If a = 3, f (0) = lim h ! De±nition: e is the number such that lim h ! e h ± 1 h = d dx ( e x ) = 6-? ± ex. At what point is the tangent line to f ( x ) = e x parallel to y = 4 x + 1? Find f ( x ) for the following functions: ex. f ( x ) = p x + 3 p x 4 p x ex. g ( x ) = ex 2 + 2 e x + xe 2 + x e 2 ex. h ( x ) = x ln 3 ± ± ln 3 ± e e...

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
