[12 points] Find an equation of the tangent line to the curve y = x5 — 5232 at the point Where :6 = —1. When a: = —1, y‘w:_1 = (—1)5 — 5(—1)2 = —6 and so the point is (—1,—6). The derivative of y is y’ = 5:54 — 5(2m) = 5.734 — 10.6 and so the slope of the tangent line is y’lxﬂ = 5(—1)4 —10(—1) = 15. By the point-slope form, an equation of the tangent line is y——6=15(m——1) y+6=15(a:+1). This may also be written as y : 15:13 + 9. 5. [15 points] Use appropriate derivative rules to calculate the derivative of SE2 563—1' y: We use the quotient rule with the Choices u = :32 and v = x3 — 1.

(a) We have 3/ = 3(4903) — 4(3132) : 1231:3 — 12232. To ﬁnd the critical :5 values we have to solve the equation y’ = O for ac: 12\$3—12\$2=0 12\$2(9:—1)=0 m2=00r(m—1):O x=Oorzr=1.

Since the derivative is negative before and positive after the critical point that has x = 1, this one is a (relative) minimum. 1 3.

This allows you to know whether or not you have made an error, but doesn’t necessarily help to ﬁnd it if you have. 4. [12 points] The function y = Zﬁ — :1: has a critical point at (1,1). What conclusion results from applying the second derivative test to this critical point? We start by ﬁnding the second derivative: 1 y/ : 2(ECE71/2) _ 1 : x—l/Q _ 1 1 I/ = __ —3/2 y 253 .

### What students are saying

• 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
