Question and Answer Seminar #2 Use POWER RULE to find the derivative. 1) f(x) = 9x 7/5 - 5x 2 + 10 4 2) f(x) = 6 x - 5 x + 6 x 5 3) f(x) = x + 5 x 4) g(x) = 4x 5 + x 4 - 7x 2 + 3, find g'( - 1) F ind the equation of the tangent line to the curve when x has the given value. 5) f(x) = - 2 - x 2 ; x = 5 F ind all values of x (if any) where the tangent line to the graph of the function is horizontal. 6) y = x 3 - 12x + 2 S 7) If the price of a product is given by P(x) = 1024 x + 2300, where x represents the demand for the product, find the rate of change of price when the demand is 4. Use PRODUCT RULE to find the derivative. 8) f(x) = (3x - 4)(4x 3 - x 2 + 1) 9) f(x) = (2x - 3)( x + 5) Write an equation of the tangent line to the graph of y = f(x) at the point on the graph where x has the indicated value. 10) f(x) = (5x 2 - 5x - 2)( - 4x + 1), x = 0 Use
