Unformatted text preview: Math 241 Project 1 Due in Discussion on Tuesday 2/28/2012 What to Submit: For this project you will need to turn in a printout of what you typed into Matlab and the printouts of the plot windows for those questions asking you to plot. For the eager: If you know how to publish an m-file you can put all the commands in the m-file and print out the published document instead if you wish for +5 bonus points. 1. Clear Matlab completely with clear all . 2. Define the symbolic variables x and t . 3. Set t to be a real variable. 4. Add 10 and 17. 5. Factor the polynomial x 5- 3 x 4 + x 3 + 5 x 2- 6 x + 2. 6. Solve the equation x 2 + 4 x- 1 = 0. 7. Differentiate the function f ( x ) = x 2 x 1 + cos( x 2 ). 8. Differentiate the function f ( x ) = xe 2 x 1 and then plug in- 1. 9. Integrate f ( x ) = x 2 + x cos( x ). 10. Find the area under the graph of f ( x ) = 9- x 2 and above the x-axis....
