MA 1505 Mathematics I Tutorial 2 Solutions 1. (a) y = x + 1 x 2 + 1 , x [ - 3 , 3]. y 0 = 2 - ( x + 1) 2 ( x 2 + 1) 2 and y 0 = 0 if x = - 1 ± 2. So critical points are x = - 1 ± 2 and endpoints are x = ± 3. y 0 < 0 if - 3 x < - 1 - 2 , = 0 if x = - 1 - 2 , > 0 if - 1 - 2 < x < - 1 + 2 , = 0 if x = - 1 + 2 , < 0 if - 1 + 2 < x 3 . Hence y is decreasing in [ - 3 , - 1 - 2), increasing in ( - 1 - 2 , - 1 + 2), and decreasing in ( - 1 + 2 , 3]. So local min is: y ( - 1 - 2) = - 1 2( 2 + 1) , y (3) = 2 5 and local max is: y ( - 1 + 2) = 1 2( 2 - 1) , y ( - 3) = - 1 5 . Since - 1 2( 2 + 1) < - 1 5 < 2 5 < 1 2( 2 - 1) , so absolute min. is min x [ - 3 , 3] y = - 1 2( 2 + 1) at x = - 1 - 2 and absolute max. is max x [ - 3 , 3] y = 1 2( 2 - 1) at x = - 1 + 2. (b) y = ( x - 1) 3 x 2 , x ( -∞ , ). y 0 = x 2 / 3 + 2 3 ( x - 1) x - 1 / 3 = 5 x - 2 3 x 1 / 3 and y 0 = 0 if x = 2 5 . Note that y 0 does not exist at x = 0. So the critical points are x = 0 and x = 2 5 . y 0 > 0 if x < 0 , does not exist if x = 0 , < 0 if 0 < x < 2 5 , = 0 if x = 2 5 , > 0 if x > 2 5 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
