2 4. (10 points) Use the definition of derivative as a limit to find f 0 ( x ) if f ( x ) = x 2 - 6 x + 5 . 5. (5 points) Find the equation of the tangent line to the graph of f ( x ) = x 2 - 6 x + 5 at the point where x = 2. 6. (25 points) Use rules for differentiation to find the derivatives of the fol- lowing. (a) f ( x ) = x 3 + 2 x 2 + 2 x - 1 (b) f ( x ) = 1 x + 1 x (c) f ( x ) = ( x 4 + 2) 9 / 2 (d) f ( x ) = x ( x + 2)( x - 2) (e) f ( x ) = (( x 2 + 3 x + 4) 3 + 5) 4

Unformatted text preview: and minima or inection points. 8. (5 points) Find the positive numbers x and y that satisfy xy = 100 and which minimize 2 x + y . 4 9. (10 points) A ball is thown up in the air at a speed of 96 feet per second from a point 48 feet above the ground. The height in feet s ( t ) of the ball at time t seconds is given by s ( t ) = 32 + 64 t-16 t 2 . (a) When does the ball reach its maximum height? (b) What is the balls maximum height? (c) When does the ball hit the ground? (d) How fast is the ball going when it hits the ground? 10. (10 points) When x items are produced, the cost is C ( x ) = 100 x +10 , 000 and the price (demand curve) is p ( x ) = 400-. 01 x . (a) What is the revenue R ( x )? (b) What is the prot P ( x )? (c) Find the production level x that maximizes prot, and the maximum value of prot....
