Mrs. Waldron BC Calculus 604 Ch 3.9 Derivatives of Exponential and Logarithmic Functions 1. The spread of a flu in a certain school is modeled by the equation: 5-t 200 P(t) = 1 +e Where P(t) is the total number of students infected t days after the flue first started to spread. a) Estimate the initial number of students infected with this flu. b) How fast is the flu spreading after 4 days? c) When will the flu spread at its maximum rate? What is this rate? 2. Let f(x) = 3 x – x 3 . For what values of x is the tangent to this curve parallel to the secant through (0,1) and (3,0)?
