MA 113 Name Quiz 8 November 6th, 2013 1. Use L’Hˆ opital’s Rule to evaluate the limit, or state that L’Hˆopital’s Rule does not apply and explain why it does not. (2 points each) (a) lim x 0 sin(sin(sin( x ))) x 2 - 1 (b) lim x →- 1 9 x 7 + 2 x 2 + 7 x 2 - 1 Solutions: (a) lim x 0 sin(sin(sin( x ))) x 2 - 1 = 0 - 1 = 0 L’Hˆ opital’s Rule does not apply here, as we do not have an indeterminate form. This limit can simply be found using direct substitution. (b) 9( - 1) 7 + 2( - 1) 2 + 7 ( - 1) 2 - 1 = 0 0 Direct substitution of - 1 yields the indeterminate form 0 / 0, so we can apply L’Hˆopital’s Rule. Thus, lim x →- 1 9 x 7 + 2 x 2 + 7 x 2 + 1 = lim x →- 1 63 x 6 + 4 x 2 x = 63( - 1) 6 + 4( - 1) 2( - 1) = - 59 2

2. A box with no top is to be constructed from a single rectangular piece of card- board, with side lengths A and B . The box will be constructed by cutting out squares of length x from each corner and folding up the sides. (a) Draw a picture to describe the situation. Label all pertinent information. (1 point) (b) Find the value of x that maximizes the volume of the box if A = 15 and B = 24. (4 points) (c) What are the dimensions of the box that maximizes volume? (1 point)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
