Math 170-010 Homework 9/14 Fall 2011 Goal: Use easy rules to compute derivatives. Recognize which rule applies to what kind of function. 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 f ( g ( x )) f ( g ( x )) g ( x ) Exercises: From the Online Textbook, Section 3.5: Problems 1, 2, 3, 17, 19, 21, 22, 4, 5, 7, 6, 11, 36, 38, 39. Challenge Problems: 1. For each of these problems, assume that f , g and h are unknown functions of x . Find y and simplify as far as possible. (a) y = fgh (b) y = fg h (c) y = f gh (d) y = 1 fgh 1

2. Did you simplify? Did you notice the patterns? Always one of each derivative. If there is a denominator, you get it back, squared. For each thing from the denominator, it’s derivative shows up negative.

Unformatted text preview: Assume k is another unknown function. Try to guess the derivative of y = fg hk 3. The graphs of a function, f , and its derivative, f , are shown at right. Suppose that g = x 2 f (a) Figure out which graph is f and which graph is f . (b) Find g (c) Estimate g (2). 2 Hints and Answers Challenge 1. (a) y = f gh + fg h + fgh (b) y = f gh + fg h-fgh h 2 (c) y = f gh-fg h-fgh ( gh ) 2 (d) y =-f gh-fg h-fgh ( fgh ) 2 2. y = f ghk + fg hk-fgh k-fghk ( hk ) 2 3. (a) Top graph is f , bottom is f . (b) g = 2 xf + x 2 f . (c) g (2) -60. 3...
