Complete all of the following problems. Show work when appropriate. 1) When f is defined by f (x) = x , find a so that f (a) is three times the value of f (2) . f ( x ) = x1 / 2 1 f ( x) = x -1 / 2 2 1 -1 / 2 1 f (2) = (2 ) = 2 2 2 3 Three times f (2) is . 2 2 1 3 f (a ) = = Solve for a. / / 2 a 2 2 2 a= 9 2) If a construction worker drops a wrench from the top of a building 375 feet high the wrench will be s(t) = -16t 2 + 375 feet above the ground after t seconds. Determine the velocity of the wrench 4 seconds after it was dropped. (t ) = v(t ) = -32t s Find the Derivative of the following. 4) y = 3t 5 - 5 t +
y = 15t 4 5 7 - 2 1/ 2 2t t

7 t

x ( x + 1) = x 3 / 2 + x1 / 2 1 y = 3 x1 / 2 + 1 / 2 2 2x
5) y =

v(4) = -32(4) = -128 ft/s

6) f (x) = e 2 + e x + x e f ( x) = e x + ex e-1

7) 3) Find an equation for the tangent line to the graph of g(x) = 2 - x 3 when x = 1. When x = 1, g(1) = 1 so the point is (1, 1). g ( x) = -3 x 2 Now to find the slope: g (1) = -3(1) 2 = -3 Using point-slope:
y - 1 = -3( x - 1) y = -3 x + 4

f ( z ) = (ln 2 )2 z

f (z) =
