Find the slope of the curve at the given point P. 6.) ( )

Use the derivative to find any critical values of the function and then state whether the value(s) is a local maximum, minimum, or point of inflection. 7.)

Use derivatives to graph the curve. 8.) ( ) Step 1: Find Critical Points by finding ( )

Step 2: Use the derivative to find where the graph is increasing and decreasing by taking x values in each area formed by critical points.

Step 3: Find the x-intercepts (zeros of the function).

Step 4: Find the y-intercept.

Step 5: Take the limit of the function as x goes to .

Step 6: Put it all together and graph it!

Determine where the extreme values occur and what they are for the given function and interval. 9.) ( )

10.) A manufacturer produces a metal box with a square base, no top, and a volume of 10,000 cm3, with a height of h What values of x and h minimize the amount of metal used to make the box? (hint: solve for h in terms of x and then add the areas of the sides)

11.) A particle is moving along a number line so that its position to the right of the origin at time t is ( ) . Find the position, velocity, and acceleration of the particle at time t=3.
