Unformatted text preview: myers (nmm698) HW05 Hamrick (54868) 1 This printout should have 21 questions. Multiplechoice 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 ) = parenleftbigg 2 3 parenrightbigg 2 / 3 . 1. f ( x ) = parenleftbigg 2 3 parenrightbigg x 1 / 3 2. f ( x ) = 4 9 x 1 / 3 3. f ( x ) = 0 correct 4. f ( x ) does not exist 5. f ( x ) = 2 3 parenleftbigg 2 3 parenrightbigg 1 / 3 Explanation: The derivative of any constant function is zero. Consequently, f ( x ) = 0 . 002 10.0 points Find the value of f ( 1) when f ( x ) = 3 x 2 1 x 3 + 1 . Correct answer: 3. Explanation: Since d dx x r = r x r 1 , we see that f ( x ) = 6 x + 3 x 4 . At x = 1, therefore, f ( 1) = 3 . 003 10.0 points Determine the derivative of f when f ( x ) = 2 x 1 2 x . 1. f ( x ) = 2 x + 1 x 2 x 2. f ( x ) = 1 2 parenleftbigg 2 x 1 x 2 x parenrightbigg 3. f ( x ) = 2 x 1 x 2 x 4. f ( x ) = 2 x 1 2 x 5. f ( x ) = 1 2 parenleftbigg 2 x + 1 x 2 x parenrightbigg correct 6. f ( x ) = 1 2 parenleftbigg 2 x + 1 2 x parenrightbigg Explanation: Since d dx a x r = r a x r 1 for all exponents r negationslash = 0 and constants a , we see that f ( x ) = 1 2 radicalbigg 2 x + 1 2 1 x 2 x . After simplification this becomes f ( x ) = 1 2 parenleftbigg 2 x + 1 x 2 x parenrightbigg . 004 10.0 points Find the derivative of f when f ( x ) = 7 x 1 4 + 4 x 1 4 4 . 1. f ( x ) = 7 x 1 2 4 4 x 5 4 correct myers (nmm698) HW05 Hamrick (54868) 2 2. f ( x ) = 7 x 1 4 + 4 4 x 3 4 3. f ( x ) = 7 x 1 2 4 3 x 5 4 4. f ( x ) = 7 x 1 4 4 4 x 5 4 5. f ( x ) = 7 x 1 2 + 4 4 x 3 4 Explanation: Because of the linearity of differentiation and the property d dx ( x r ) = rx r 1 , we see that f ( x ) = 1 4 parenleftbigg 7 x 3 4 4 x 5 4 parenrightbigg . Thus f ( x ) = 7 x 1 2 4 4 x 5 4 . 005 10.0 points Find the derivative of f when f ( x ) = x x 1 x . 1. f ( x ) = 2 x ( x 2 1) 2 correct 2. f ( x ) = 1 1 + 1 x 2 3. f ( x ) = 1 1 1 x 2 4. f ( x ) = 2 x x 1 5. f ( x ) = 2 x x 2 1 6. f ( x ) = 2 x ( x 2 1) 2 Explanation: Its best to simplify the function before dif ferentiating; for then f ( x ) = x 2 x 2 1 . Thus by the Quotient Rule, f ( x ) = 2 x ( x 2 1) 2 x ( x 2 ) ( x 2 1) 2 Consequently, f ( x ) = 2 x ( x 2 1) 2 . 006 10.0 points Find the derivative of f ( x ) = ( x 4)  x 4  . 1. f ( x ) = 2  x 4  correct 2. f ( x ) = 2 x 4 3. f ( x ) = x 4 4. f ( x ) =  2 x 4  5. f ( x ) = 2( x 4) 6. f ( x ) =  x 4  Explanation: Since  v  = braceleftbigg v, v 0, v, v < 0, we see that f ( x ) = braceleftBigg ( x 4) 2 , x < 4,...
