MATH 1A Exam #2 Spring 2011

Name: ______________________ Roll #: _____ Score: _______/100

Work each problem in the space provided on the exam page. Full or partial credit will be given only if all work has been shown and the answers are clearly indicated. Each numbered problem is worth 10 points. 1. Classify each of the following statements as true (T) or false (F). _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ a) The derivative b)
dP gives the rate at which P is changing with respect to t. dt

d [cosh 2] = sinh 2 dx

c) A function defined on a closed interval must have an absolute maximum. d) If f ′(c) = 0 then f has an extreme value at x = c . e) If f ′′(x) > 0 for all x in I, then the graph of f is concave upward on I.

2. Find the derivative of each function and simplify. Show all steps. a)

f (x) = sin ecos x




g(x) =

1 x + x6

3. Find a)

d2y dx 2

(the second derivative) for each function and simplify. Show all steps.


x +1 x


y = x sinh x

not the function. The graph of the first derivative f ′ of a function of a continuous function f is shown. Identify each curve and explain your choices. y b a t c 5. NOTE: The graph of the derivative. y y = f (x) –2 2 x . The figure shows the graphs of three functions. One is the position function of a yoyo. is shown. 1].page 2 4. Use the Extreme Value Theorem to determine the absolute maximum and minimum values of f (x) = 3x1 3 − 6x 4 3 on the interval [–1. and one is its acceleration. Identify the type of extrema and give reasons for your answers. Show all steps. State the x-coordinates of any local extrema for the graph of f. 6. one is the velocity of the yoyo.

The first derivative of f is given by y y = f (x) x f ′(x) = 5x + 12 (x + 4) 3 1 Determine the open intervals on which f is increasing or decreasing. The second derivative of f is given by y f ′′(x) = 2 sin x − 1 Determine the open intervals on which f is concave up or concave down on the interval [–π. INTERVAL Test Value Sign of f′ CONCLUSION INCREASING: DECREASING: 8. π]. The graph of y = f (x) is shown on the adjacent coordinate system.page 3 7. x y = f (x) INTERVAL Test Value Sign of f ′′ CONCLUSION CONCAVE UP: CONCAVE DOWN: . The graph of y = f (x) (−π ≤ x ≤ π) is shown on the adjacent coordinate system.

5 times as expensive as the cost of construction on land. What dimensions should be used so that the enclosed area will be a maximum? 10.page 4 9. A rancher has 1000 feet of fencing with which to construct two adjacent rectangular corrals (see the figure). P 3 km x L 8 km Q S . The cost of constructing a pipe in the ocean from the platform to the shore is 2. Oil from an offshore platform (P) located 3 km from the shore is to be pumped to a location (L) on the edge of the shore that is 8 km east of the platform. Determine the location of point Q relative to point S that minimizes the cost of the laying the pipe.
