Unformatted text preview: Time allowed: 20 minutes. 1. (4 marks) Let f ( x ) = x 2 . (a) If a > 0, find lim x → a f ( x ). (b) Prove your answer in (i) by arguing in terms of and δ . 2. (2 marks) Find lim x → 1 − cos 3 x x 2 . 3. (2 marks) Consider the function f ( x ) = x 4 − 4 x 3 − 11 x 2 + 30 x x − a . This is not continuous at x = a . For what values of a is the discontinuity removable? 4. (2 marks) State the Mean Value Theorem. Hence or otherwise, show that x ≥ sin − 1 x for − 1 < x ≤ 0. Version 2, 4/5/08 Week 7 Tuesday 10-11 Class 1. (a) lim x → a f ( x ) = a 2 . (b) ‘ lim x → a f ( x ) = l ’ means: ‘For all real numbers > 0, there exists a real number δ > 0, such that: | f ( x ) − l | < whenever 0 < | x − a | < δ ’. Let > 0 be given. We want to find δ > 0 such that | x 2 − a 2 | < whenever 0 < | x − a | < δ . Now | x 2 − a 2 | = | x − a || x + a | . Let’s assume | x − a | < a....
