Exercise 3 . 3 : 27 Suppose that the size of a population at time t is given by N ( t ) = 500 t 3 + t , t 0 . ( a ) Use a graphing calculator to sketch the graph of N ( t ). ( b ) Determine the size of the population as t → ∞ . We call this the limiting population size . ( c ) Show that, at time t = 3, the size of the population is half its limiting size. Exercise 3 . 3 : 29 Suppose that the size of a population at time t is given by N ( t ) = 100 1 + 3 e - t , t 0 . ( a ) Use a graphing calculator to sketch the graph of N ( t ). ( b ) Determine the size of the population as t → ∞ , using the basic rules for limits compare your answer with the graph that you sketched in ( a ). For Section 3 . 4 Exercise 3 . 4 : 1 , 3 , 5 , 7 , 9 In the following problems, evaluate the trigonometric limits, 1) lim x 0 sin(3 x ) 3 x , 2) lim x 0 sin(5 x ) x , 3) lim x 0 sin( πx ) x , 4) lim x 0 sin( πx ) x , 5) lim x 0 sin( x ) cos( x ) x (1 - x ) . Exercise 3 . 4 : 19 Let f ( x ) = ln( x ) x , x > 0, 1

    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.
