Math 270 Test 2 Study Guide I. Word problems 1. A serial killer’s reign of terror can be modeled by x x M 2 ) ( = where M is the total number of murders after x days. Find the AROC of M(x) for x = 0 to x = 9. What does this AROC tell you about the murders? 2. The number of fleas on a dog can be approximated by x x f ) 5 . 3 ( 2 ) ( = where x is the number of weeks since its flea medicine wore off. a) What does 300 ) 4 ( f mean in terms of fleas on the dog? b) Estimate ) 4 ( ' f (to a whole number). What does this value mean for fleas on the dog? II. Use the graph of f(x) below to list the following quantities from largest to smallest: ) ( ' A f the IROC at D the AROC from C to E the slope at B zero III. For each of the following, give the signs of ) ( ' x f and ) ( ' ' x f . 1.
