Math 170-010 Homework 9/13 Fall 2011 Goal: Use “easy” rules to compute derivatives. Recognize when the easy rules do and don’t apply. Here is the complete list of easy rules. Assume a , b and c are constants; f and g are functions. Function Derivative c 0 x 1 x n nx n 1 af + bg af + bg fg f g + fg f g f g - fg g 2 Exercises: 1. Online Text, Section 3.3: Problems 1, 2 and 5. 2. Online Text, Section 3.4: Problems 1, 2, 5 and 6. 3. Compute the derivative of each of the following. Assume that a , b are constants. Assume that f and g are unknown functions of x . (a) ( x 2 - 3 x )( ax + b ) (b) x 2 - 3 x ax + b (c) ( ax + b ) 2 (d) ( x 2 - 3 x )( ax + b )(12 x 5 + 4 x 3 ) (e) f x 2 - 3 x (f) f 2 (g) x 2 f 2 x + 5 4. Online Text, Section 3.4: Problem 9. 1
