Suppose that y = x + 1 x . ±ind the slope of the tangent line at the point (1 , 2). 6. (15 pts.) A moving object has position (in meters) given by f ( t ) = 30 + 10 t2 t 2 , with t in seconds. ±ind its position when its velocity is 8 m/s. 7. (10 pts.) You wish to install a cable running from P to Q to R as shown in the Fgure at right. It costs you $180 per foot for the segment from P to Q and $100 per foot for the segment from Q to R . Total cost, C , is a function of the distance x from T to Q . Compute the average rate of change of C ( x ) on the interval 0 ≤ x ≤ 50 feet. 350 ft 150 ft x P Q R T 2...
