Final: Tuesday, Dec. 11, 8-11am, covering Chapters 1-8, with emphasis on Chapters 7,8. Practice Problems 1. Find the derivative of the following functions. (a) f ( x ) = 3 x 2 + 2 e 3 x (b) f ( x ) = x 2 +1 x (c) f ( x ) = ( x + 2 a ) 2 (d) Is the function f ( x ) = 3 t 2 - 4 t - t 3 increasing or decreasing when t = 1? (e) Find a nonzero function f ( x ) such that f 0 ( x ) - 4 f ( x ) = 0. 2. (a) What is the equation of the tangent line to f ( x ) = x
