(b) Is there any time t0 , between t = 2 and t = 3, where the instantaneous rate of change is equal to the average rate of change between t = 2 and t = 3? If so, solve for t0 . If not, explain why in a sketch or carefully-written sentence. Solution: (a) The average rate of change is given by ∆p p(t2 ) − p(t1 ) = ∆t t2 − t1 (32 − 6(3)) − (22 − 6(2)) = 3−2 (−9) − (−8) = = −1 1 (b) Let’s try to solve for t0 . If we can, then the answer is clearly “yes”. dec2004q1 dec2006q6 2006 Decemb er [12] i) ii) iii) iv) v) 6. Mathematics 102 Name 5.

Suppose g (x) is the inverse function for f (x). Then the slope of the tangent line to g (x) at the point x = 2 is: slope= (b) A differential equation describing radioactive decay of a substance is dy = −ky, dt where y (t) = Ce−kt is the amount of radioactivity remaining. A plot of y (t) versus t is found to be a curve that goes through the point (0, 10), and has tangent line of slope −5 at that point. What are the values of the constants?
