Check the hypotheses of the Intermediate Value Theorem for y = 2 / 5 . Find the value c in the interval [0 , 1] such that f ( c ) = 2 / 5 . Solution: The function f is a rational function defined everywhere and so it is continuous at every point in its domain of definition as all the elementary functions. Because f (0) = 0 and f (1) = 1 2 we need to check that y = 2 / 5 is in the interval [0 , 1 / 2]. This is clearly true and so the Intermediate Value Theorem applies in this cases: the equation f ( x ) = y must have at least a solution in the interval (0 , 1). In fact f ( x ) = 2 5 is equivalent to 5 x = 2 x 2 + 2 or 2 x 2- 5 x +2 = 0. Factoring this quadratic will give (2 x- 1)( x- 2) = 0 which has solutions x 1 = 2 and x 2 = 1 / 2. 2 . For the function in Problem 1 find the equation of the tangent line to the graph of y = f ( x ) at the point (3 , 3 / 10) . Use a graphing calculator to draw the graph of y = f ( x ) and the above tangent line. Solution: If we calculate the derivative of this function we obtain f ( x ) = x 2 + 1- x (2 x ) ( x 2 + 1) 2 = 1- x 2 ( x 2 + 1) 2 = f (3) =- 8 100 =- 2 25 and then the equation of the tangent line is y = f (3) + f (3)( x- 3) y = 3 10- 2 25 ( x- 3) y = 27- 4 x 50 , and its graph together with the graph of y = f ( x ): 3 2 1 0.4 x 0.2 0.3 5 4 0.5 0.1 3 .
