In order for f ( x ) to be differentiable at 0, we would need for f (0) = lim x f ( x ) f (0) x = lim x x sin ( 1 x ) x = lim x sin 1 x , but this limit does not exist because x = 0 is an essential discontinuity of sin ( 1 x ) (by page 164 of the book), so f is not differentiable at 0. Exercise 14.2.5 This is true. If f ( x ) has period c , then f ( x + c ) = lim h f ( x + c + h ) f ( x + c ) h = lim h f ( x + h ) f ( x ) h = f ( x ) . Therefore, f ( x ) is periodic, with a period that divides c . The relevant limits exist because we are given that f ( x ) is differentiable. Exercise 14.3.3 (a) If f ( x ) has degree n , then f ( x ) has degree n 1, so it has at most n 1 roots by Problem 151 (b) (which is conveniently due on the same day). Therefore, f ( x ) has at most n 1 critical points. It can have exactly n 1 critical points if f ( x ) = R x ( t 1)( t 2) . . . ( t ( n 1)) dt , which gives f ( x ) = ( x 1)( x 2) . . . ( x ( n 1)), which has as roots x = 1 , 2 , . . . , n 1....
