Unformatted text preview: The mostmissed point on this problem was that you must plug in a and b into the formula for y . The reason is that the formula y = y x tells you the slope of the tangent at a given point ( x, y ), but you have to actually pick a point and plug in the values to get the slope at that point. Otherwise the tangent line equation which youll come up with wont even be the equation for a line. 2. Let f ( x ) = (1 + sin(cos(sin(2 x )))) 100 . Find f ( x ). Solution: Many applications of chain rule give: 100 (1+sin(cos(sin(2 x )))) 99 cos(cos(sin(2 x ))) (sin(sin(2 x ))) cos(2 x ) 2 . 1...
