MAT 135: Calculus Assessment 2
This is a 50-minute timed exam assessing your mastery of derivatives and their applications. Youmay use a calculator; but all other implements and notes are prohibited. Please write your solutionsout neatly and in numerical order on separate sheets of paper.
Section I: Conceptual Knowledge — 24 points
(4 points each) Below is the graph of 
y
, the derivative of a function
y
=
(
x
). To repeat: The graph yousee below is NOT
(
x
) but rather its derivative,
(
x
) (also denoted
dy/dx
).

Based only on the graph of 
dy/dx
above, answer each of the following and give a one-sentence explanationof your reasoning for each.
WARNING: Remember that the graph above IS NOT THE GRAPH OF 
,the original function. Any answers to these questions that assume that the graph above is
, the original  function, will be given no credit.
1. Suppose that
x
is measured in “dollars” and
, the original function, is measured in “hours”. At whatrate is
, the original function, changing when
x
= 3, and what are the units of this quantity?2. What are the critical numbers of 
, the original function?3. On what interval(s) is
, the original function, increasing? Decreasing?4. Of the critical numbers you found, which give local maximum values on
, the original function? Whichgive local minimum values?5. On what interval(s) is
, the original function, concave up? Concave down? And what (if anything)are the inflection points of 
?6. Where (if anywhere) does
, the original function, attain an absolute maximum value on the interval[
1
,
4]? If there is no absolute maximum value on this interval, or if there is not enough informationto answer the question, say so and explain.1
