All solutions must be clearly stated and fully justiﬁed. Use the format given on UWACE
under Content, in the ﬁle Assignment Format for Math 135 and Math 137. NOTE : The TEXT problems without boxes are suggested for use in preparing for your As
signments, and/or for review before tests and examinations. TEXT PROBLEMS : Section 1.1 — 11, 12, 16, 17, 20, I, 29, I, 39, 50, 59, 64, 68
Section 1.2 — 5, 8, 17, 19, 20 Section 1.3 — 4a),d), I, 16, I, 24, I, I, 44, 48, 51, 53, 56, 61. (For problem 28, see page 16 of your Course Notes for guidance.)
Appendix A — 23, 25, I 38, 46, 56, 57, 5.9, I, 61,, 68 EXTRA PROBLEMS: 1
E11 Consider the function f (z) = m + E' a) State the domain Df. b) (i) On the same axes, sketch y = I and y = i for so > 0. (ii) Use your graphs to explain why, as it goes from 0 t0 1, f (a?) ranges from 00
to 2, While as 9; goes from 1 to 00, f (:r) ranges from 2 to 00 . c) Show that f is an odd function. d) Sketch the graph of y = f (at), and state the range Rf. E12 Sketch the given function using the deﬁnition of the absolute value function and/or
graphical operations on basic functions. a) (4x—5)% b) 24122—1] E13 a) Find the domain of the function f(r) = M33: + 4 + i x
[HINTz Rewrite f as ¥ and consider a: > 0, and :1: < 0 separately]
1‘4 — 4:132
b) Solve the inequality m > 0 by Sketching both y = m4 — 4x2 and y = $2 + 2:1: — 3 on the same axes, showing all intercepts. E1.4 A cylindrical tank has diameter 2 1n and height 6 m. a) Find a function V(d) 1113 which represents the total volume of fluid in the tank
when it is ﬁlled to a depth of d In. State the domain and range of V(d), and
sketch its graph. b) Find the depth d(V) in of the fluid if its volume is V m3.
c) Suppose the tank is initially empty at time t = 0 and is ﬁlled at a rate of 10 litres per minute. Find the volume V(t) in3 after t minutes, and hence determine how
long it takes to ﬁll the tank. [HINT: Recall l m3 = 1000 litres]. E1.5* According to J. Maynard Smith (in Models in Ecology, Oxford : Cambridge University
Press, 1974), in population models, the size f(a:) of the next generation in terms of the
size :1: of the current generation can be modelled by A2: f($l=m a where A, a, and b are positive constants. a) Suppose a = b = 1, and /\ = 3 for a certain cell population, with :1: and f (CL)
measured in millions of cells. Show that f (x) can be written as f(:c)=3(1 1 ), 1+2: and hence ﬁnd the limiting size of the population as 2: increases. 1
Sketch a qualitative graph of f(:1:). [ HINT: Start with y = — for w > 0 ; you will
a:
need a reflection, two shifts, and one scale, not necessarily in that order.]
Suppose instead that a = 1, and b = A = 3. State the resulting model, sketch its
graph for x > 0, and discuss how its predictions differ from those of the model in
a), b). [HINT: See Example 7, pages 17—18 of your Course Notes for help with the
qualitative graph] *Throughout your assignments in Math 137, problems marked with an * were adapted from problems
