MATH 102, ASSIGNMENT 7 DUE JULY 21 Problem 1. i) Find the domain of f ( x ) = ln ( ln x ) . ii) Write the equation of the tangent line to the graph of f ( x ) = ln x 2 + x + 2 x + 3 at x = 1. Problem 2: Consider the function f ( x ) = - 1 + 2ln x x 2 . a) What is the domain of f ? b) Find the critical numbers and the points of inﬂection for f . c) Find the absolute extrema of f on the interval [ e , e 2 ] . Problem 3: Consider the function f ( x ) = x e - e x . What kind of relative extrema are f ( 1 ) and f ( e ) ? (Hint: Second-Derivative Test!) Problem 4. Sketch the graph the function f ( x ) = e - x 2 / 2 by going through the “5-step” plan: domain, intercepts, asymptotes, ﬁrst derivative, second
