MATH 191, Sections 1 and 3 Calculus I Fall 2007 Practice Exam 1, Solutions 1. (15 points) Find numbers C and a such that the exponential function f ( x ) = Ca x satisfies f (1) = 2 and f (3) = 18. From f (1) = 2 we have C · a 1 = 2, so that C = 2 a . From f (3) = 18 we obtain C · a 3 = 18, and plugging in C = 2 a gives us 2 a · a 3 = 18 2 a 2 = 18 a = 3 . This yields C = 2 a = 2 3 , so our function has the form f ( x ) = C · a x = 2 3 · 3 x . 2. (15 points) On a set of axes of your own, draw a graph of a single function f satisfying the following conditions: (a) lim x →- 2 - f ( x ) 6 = lim x →- 2 + f ( x ), (b) lim x 0 f ( x ) = -∞ , (c) f has a removable discontinuity at x = 3. Since there are myriad possibilities here, come and see me if you’d like me to let you know if your graph meets the given conditions! 3. (10 points) Explain briefly (and demonstrate!) how to graph the function H ( x ) = 2 | x - 1 | - 3 without a calculator. In order to obtain the graph of the indicated function, you must begin with the graph of the simpler
