Calculators are not permitted. Answer each question in the space provided. If the question is in several parts, carefully label the answer to each part. Do all of your work on the examination paper; scratch paper is not permitted. If you continue a problem on the back of the page, please write “continued on back”. Each problem is worth 20 points. Problem Score 1 2 3 4 5 Total 1 2 Problem 1: (a) Find the derivative of cos 1 x at x = √ 2 2 . (b) If g ( x ) is the inverse of f ( x ) = x 3 + x + 1, find g (1). Solution: (a) cos 1 ( √ 2 2 ) = π 4 . Since d dx cos x = sin x , (cos 1 ) √ 2 2 = 1 sin π 4 = 2 √ 2 = √ 2 . (b) To find g (1), set f ( x ) = 1: x 3 + x + 1 = 1 ⇒ x = 0 We have f ( x ) = 3 x 2 + 1, f (0) = 3 · 0 + 1 = 1 so g (1) = 1 f (0)...
