d) [1 point] Will R 4 provide an upper or lower bound for ln 2? 6. Evaluate the following definite integrals. [5 points each] a) dx x x + + 2 1 2 2 3 1 b) θ θ θ π d 2 / 0 cos 7. [10 points] Consider the curve y = 1/x 2 , for x > 0. Consider the areas under the curve for 0 < x < 1 and x > 1. In each case determine whether the area is finite or infinite and if finite, determine the area. 8. Suppose that the probability density for the failure of a cell phone at time t after purchase is f(t) = 0.2e -t/5 per year (where t is in years). Note that all phones will fail eventually ( 1 2 . 0 0 5 / = - dt e t ) a) [5 points] What is the probability that it will fail in the first 3 years after purchase. b) [5 points] What is the probability that it will still be working after 10 years (without any repairs). 2

EXPLAIN your analyses, i.e. we want a few words, not just the answers. 9. a) [7 points] Solve the differential equation: xy′ = y + x 2 sin x, x > 0 if y(π) = 0. b) [3 points] Determine the values y(π/2), y(3π/2) and y(2π) 10. [10 points] A fish population has been modelled by the differential equation: m P dt dP - = 1 . 0 where t is measured in years and m > 0 represents the constant rate of harvesting. The initial fish population in the lake is P 0 = 20,000. Find the rate of harvesting (number per year) that will decrease the fish population by 50% in 10 years. 11. For each of the following, determine whether the series is absolutely convergent, conditionally convergent, or divergent. Explain each case and indicate the test you have used.

    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.
