your response. Please give a brief explanation (in a complete sentence!) – a reason why it’s true,
or an example where it fails.
(a) If g(x) is one-to-one and differentiable at every point in R, then its reciprocal
differentiable at every point in its domain. If g(x) is such a function, then let f(x) denote 1
g(x) is also 1
(b) I f f ( x) a nd g (x) b oth o ne-to-one f un
. Using the quotient rule, we see that the
g(x) g (x)
for all x such that g(x) = 0. This is because g(x) is
differentiable at every point in R. The domain of f(x) is all points such that g(x) = 0, and so
f(x) is differentiable at every point in its domain.
derivative of f exists and is equal to (b) The derivative of an even function is an odd functrion. Let f(x) be an even function. Let a denote a point at which f is differentiable. Then f is
differentiable at −a because f is symmetric across the y-axis, and
f(−a + h) − f(−a)
f(a − h) − f(a)
, because f is even
f(a + k) − f(a)
, where k = −h
f(a + k) − f(a)
f(a + k) − f(a)
= − lim
= −f (a) f (−a) = lim So we conclude that f (x) is an odd function.
A trickier way to solve the question is to notice that f(a) − f(−a) = 0. Differentiating and
using the chain rule, we see that f (a) − (−f (−a)) = 0. So we conclude that f"(x) is odd. Math 1110 (Fall 2011) HW7 Presentation Problems 3 Question 2. (10 points) Find the equation for the line tangent to the curve
2xy + sin(y) = 2π
at the point (1, π).
We begin by implicitly differentiating the equation we are given, to get
2xy + 2y + cos(y)y = 0
Next we solve for y when x = 1 and y = π.
0 = 2y + 2π + cos(π)y
= 2y + 2π − y
= y + 2π
We conclude that at the point (1, π) we must have that y = −2π. Now we have the slope of the
tangent line we want, and one point on the line, so we solve for the y-intercept.
y = −2πx + b
π = −2π · 1 + b 3π = b So the equation for the tangent line is y = −2πx + 3π. Homework 7 Book Problem Answers
