Determine each of the following limits. Formally prove your answers to (a) and (b). (a) lim x → 1 + 1 √ x- 1 (b) lim x →∞ x 2 + 1 x 2 (c) lim x → x log(1 + x ) ( e x- 1) 2 (d) lim x → 1 Z x 1 cos( t 2 ) dt sin( πx ) (e) lim x → 2 + x 2- x- 2 √ x- 2 3. Suppose that f ( x ) = 1 2 ( x + 1) for- 1 ≤ x < 1 , x 2- 4 x + 4 for 1 ≤ x < 2 ,- x 2 + 4 x- 4 for 2 ≤ x < 3 , f ( x + 4) for all real x. Is f continuous at x = 1? Is f continuous at x =- 1? Is f differentiable at x = 2? Give reasons. 4. Sketch the polar curve r = | sin θ | where 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2 π and determine the cartesian equation(s) of the curve. 5. (a) Divide the interval 1 ≤ x ≤ 2 into n equal parts, and show that n X j =1 1 n + j < Z 2 1 1 x dx < n- 1 X j =0 1 n + j . (b) Find the difference between the upper and lower sums. Use this to show that the error in the approximation ln2 ≈ 10 5 X j =1 1 10 5 + j is less than 5 × 10- 6 . 6. (a) Show that Z ∞ 1 x + √ x 2 + 1 φ dx = 1, where φ = 1 + √ 5 2 .

(c) Evaluate the improper integral Z 2 1 2 x- 3 √ x 2- 1 dx after first writing it explicitly as a limit. 7. Show that e x ≥ 1 + x for all real numbers x . Then, using the fact that e x = 1 + Z x e t dt , show that e x ≥ 1 + x + x 2 2 for all positive real numbers x . 8. (a) Suppose a >- 1 and b >- 1. Use Leibniz’s rule to show that Z 1 x a- 1 ln x dx = ln( a + 1). Hence, or otherwise, evaluate Z 1 x a- x b ln x dx (b) Let x ( t ) = 1 2 Z t sinh[2( t- s )] f ( s ) ds where f is a continuous function. Show that d 2 x dt 2- 4 x = f ( t ). 9.
