f(x) = e−x .
dx Please show your work when you answer the questions below.
(a) Find the linear approximation to f about x = 1.
The linear approximation, L(x) of f(x) about x = 1 is given by the equation
L(x) = f(1) + f (1)(x − 1)
Substituting in the values we have, this gives L(x) = 3 + e−1(x − 1). (b) Use the linear approximation to estimate the value of f(1.5).
We want to compute L(1.5). Substituting into our equation from part (a), this gives
L(1.5) = 3 + e−1 · 1

(a) If a differentiable function f is deﬁned at c, and c is a critical point of f, then f has either a
local minimum or a local maximum at c. The statement is false. Consider f(x) = x3. Note that f (x) = 3x2. Since f is always nonnegative, and is only 0 when x = 0, f is increasing on the entire real line. However, since
f (0) = 0, we know that f has a critical point at x = 0. This critical point is neither a local
maximum, nor a local minimum. (b) I f f ( x) a nd g (x) b oth o netoone f un (b) On a recent trip to Boston, Professor Holm drove 350 miles in 7 hours, including a stop for
gasoline. At some instant during the trip, her speedometer displayed exactly 50 miles per
hour. We will assume, for the purposes of this problem, that distance traveled is a differentiable,
nondecreasing function with respect to time. Let f(t) denote distance traveled in miles as
a function of time in hours, where f(0) = 0 miles, and f(7) = 350 miles. Then, by the Mean
)
Value Theorem, there is at least one point c in the interval [0, 7] such that f (c) = f(77−f(0) = 50

miels per hour. Remember that the derivative of distance traveled with respect to time is
speed, so there is at least one time at which Professor Holm was traveling at 50 miles per
hour. Homework 9 Book Problem Answers:
