Look over your test package right now . If you find any missing pages or problems please ask a proctor for another test booklet. Write your name, your instructors name, and your section number right now . Show your work. To receive full credit, your answers must be neatly written and logically organized. If you need more space, write on the back side of the preceding sheet, but be sure to label your work clearly. This is a 90 minute test. You are allowed to use your calculator and a 3 5 inch index card of notes. All other aids are prohibited. You DO NOT need to SIMPLIFY your answers. OFFICIAL USE ONLY 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Total: Math 111 (Spring 2006) Prelim 1 Solutions (02/21/2006) 2 1. [12pts (3pts each)] Evaluate the following limits. You must show all your work. Note that simply plotting points is not sufficient to receive full credit. (a) lim s 3 s 2 s s 2 2 = 3 2 3 3 2 2 = 6 7 (direct substitution property) (b) lim x  3 x 2 9 x 2 x 12 = lim x  3 ( x 3)( x + 3) ( x 4)( x + 3) = lim x  3 x 3 x 4 = lim x  3 3 3 3 4 = 6 7 (c) lim h e h 1 h = 1 Since this is the formula for the definition of derivative of f ( x ) = e x at the point x = 0. Note that: f (0) = lim h f (0 + h ) f (0) h = lim h e h 1 h Since f ( x ) = e x , then f (0) = 1. (d) lim x x 3 + 2 x + 1 7 x = lim x x 3 x + 2 x x + 1 x 7 x x x = lim x x 2 + 2 + 1 x 7 x 1 = (because ( x 2 + 2 + 1 x ) and ( 7 x 1)  1 as x ) CONTINUE TO NEXT PAGE Math 111 (Spring 2006) Prelim 1 Solutions (02/21/2006) 3 2. [15pts (3pts each)] The womens luge final for the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy was held last Wednesday. The fastest luge run was completed in 46.820 seconds by Sylke Otto, an athlete from Germany. The table below shows the data from her fastest run. time (s) distance (m) 5 . 832 60 20 . 370 420 33 . 596 870 40 . 375 1140 46 . 820 1435 (a) Using the data from the table, compute her average velocity (in meters per second) over the last 565 meters of the run. average velocity = 1435 870 46 . 820 33 . 596 = 42 . 72 m/s (b) The function s ( t ) = 0 . 19 t 2 + 21 . 32 t models this run reasonable well. Using this function, give the formula for her average velocity over the interval [ t, t + h ]....
