Unformatted text preview: 1 Problem 3: Use MAPLE to estimate the maximum value of f ( x )T 5 ( x ) for 0 x 1 (one way to do this is to plot the function f ( x )T 5 ( x ) in a suitable viewing rectangle). Solution: The MAPLE command plot(fT[5],x=0. .1); produces the following output. From the graph is appears that for 0 x 1, the function f ( x )T 5 ( x ) is positive and increasing with maximum value f (1)T 5 (1) = . 0095. We also remark that we can use MAPLE to nd the exact value of f (1)T 5 (1), along with an accurate approximate value, using the commands subs(x=1,fT[5]); evalf(%); which produce the output 3441 256 . 009394558 2...
