Find the equation of the tangent line to the graph of y = f ( x ) at the point where x = 4. 2. (10 pts.) Find dy dx , if y = x + 1 79 . 3. (10 pts. each) Diﬀerentiate: (a) f ( x ) = 5 x + 8 x-3 (b) f ( x ) = ( 3-2 x + x 5 ) 2 3 (c) f ( x ) = 8 x 2-2 x + 161 4. (10 pts.) Suppose a ﬁrm’s proﬁt from producing and selling x units of a product is given by P ( x ) = 32 x 2-9 x 3 thousands of dollars. Find the marginal proﬁt at a production level of 8. 5. (10 pts.)
