20. If y
2
− x + 1 = 0, then y =

x −1 goes through the point (10, 3) so dy/dx = 1/(2

x −1). By
implicit differentiation dy/dx = 1/(2y). In both cases, dy/dx|
(10,3)
= 1/6. Similarly y = −

x −1
goes through (10, −3) so dy/dx = −1/(2

x −1) = −1/6 which yields dy/dx = 1/(2y) = −1/6.
21. false; x = y

29. 2x + x
dy
dx
+ y + 2y
dy
dx
= 0. Substitute y = −2x to obtain −3x
dy
dx
= 0. Since x = ±1 at the
indicated points,
dy
dx
= 0 there.
30. (a) The equation and the point (1, 1) are both symmetric in x and y (if you interchange the two
variables you get the same equation and the same point). Therefore the outcome ”horizontal
tangent at (1, 1) could be replaced by ”vertical tangent at (1, 1)”, and these cannot both be
the case.
(b) Implicit differentiation yields
dy
dx
=
2x −y
x −2y
, which is zero only if y = 2x; coupled with the
equation x
2
−xy +y
2
= 1 we obtain x

(b) Implicit differentiation of the curve yields (4y

dy
dx

dy

only if x = 1/2 but y
4

(c) x

and we have the two parabolas x = −y

32. By implicit differentiation, 2y(2y

dy

= 2x−1,
dx
dy
=
2y(2y
2
+ 1)
2x −1
= 0 only if 2y(2y
2
+1) = 0,
which can only hold if y = 0. From y
4
+y
2
= x(x −1), if y = 0 then x = 0 or 1, and so (0, 0) and
(1, 0) are the two points where the tangent is vertical.

Exercise Set 3.1 105
33. Solve the simultaneous equations y = x, x
2
−xy+y
2
= 4 to get x
2
−x
2
+x
2
= 4, x = ±2, y = x = ±2,
so the points of intersection are (2, 2) and (−2, −2).
By implicit differentiation,
dy
dx
=
y −2x
2y −x
. When x = y = 2,
dy
dx
= −1; when x = y = −2,
dy
dx
= −1;
the slopes are equal.
34. Suppose a
2
−2ab +b
2
= 4. Then (−a)
2
−2(−a)(−b) +(−b)
2
= a
2
−2ab +b
2
= 4 so if P(a, b) lies
on C then so does Q(−a, −b).
By implicit differentiation (see Exercise 33),
dy
dx
=
y −2x
2y −x
. When x = a, y = b then
dy
dx
=
b −2a
2b −a
,
and when x = −a, y = −b, then
dy
dx
=
b −2a
2b −a
, so the slopes at P and Q are equal.
35. The point (1,1) is on the graph, so 1 + a = b. The slope of the tangent line at (1,1) is −4/3; use
implicit differentiation to get
dy
dx
= −
2xy
x
2
+ 2ay
so at (1,1), −
2
1 + 2a
= −
4
3
, 1 +2a = 3/2, a = 1/4
and hence b = 1 + 1/4 = 5/4.
36. The slope of the line x + 2y − 2 = 0 is m
1
= −1/2, so the line perpendicular has slope m = 2
(negative reciprocal). The slope of the curve y
3
= 2x
2
can be obtained by implicit differentiation:
3y
2
dy
dx
= 4x,
dy
dx
=
4x
3y
2
. Set
dy
dx
= 2;
4x
3y
2
= 2, x = (3/2)y
2
. Use this in the equation of the curve:
y
3
= 2x
2
= 2((3/2)y
2
)
2
= (9/2)y
4
, y = 2/9, x =
3
2
_
2
9
_
2
=
2
27
.
37. We shall find when the curves intersect and check that the slopes are negative reciprocals. For the
intersection solve the simultaneous equations x
2
+ (y −c)
2
= c
2
and (x −k)
2
+y
2
= k
2
to obtain
cy = kx =
1
2
(x
2
+ y
2
). Thus x
2
+ y
2
= cy + kx, or y
2
− cy = −x
2
+ kx, and
y −c
x
= −
x −k
y
.
Differentiating the two families yields (black)
dy
dx
= −
x
y −c
, and (gray)
dy
dx
= −
x −k
y
. But it was
proven that these quantities are negative reciprocals of each other.
38. Differentiating, we get the equations (black) x
dy
dx
+ y = 0 and (gray) 2x − 2y
dy
dx
= 0. The first
says the (black) slope is = −
y
x
and the second says the (gray) slope is
x
y
, and these are negative
reciprocals of each other.

(c) Use implicit differentiation to get dy/dx = (2y−3x
2
)/(3y
2
−2x), so dy/dx = 0 if y = (3/2)x
2
.
Substitute this into x
3

(b) Evidently the tangent line at the point x = 1, y = 1 has slope −1.
(c) Use implicit differentiation to get dy/dx = (2y−3x
2
)/(3y
2
−2x), so dy/dx = −1 if 2y−3x
2
=
−3y
2
+ 2x, 2(y − x) + 3(y − x)(y + x) = 0. One solution is y = x; this together with
x
3
+y
3
= 2 ∗ x∗ y yields x = y = 1. For these values dy/dx = −1, so that (1, 1) is a solution.
To prove that there is no other solution, suppose y = x. From dy/dx = −1 it follows
that 2(y − x) + 3(y − x)(y + x) = 0. But y = x, so x + y = −2/3. Then x
3
+ y
3
=
(x + y)(x
2
− xy + y
2
) = 2xy, so replacing x + y with −2/3 we get x
2
+ 2xy + y
2
= 0, or
(x+y)
2
= 0, so y = −x. Substitute that into x
3
+y
3
= 2xy to obtain x
3
−x
3
= −2x
2
, x = 0.
But at x = y = 0 the derivative is not defined.
41. Implicit differentiation of the equation of the curve yields rx
r−1
+ry
r−1
dy
dx
= 0. At the point (1, 1)
this becomes r +r
dy
dx
= 0,
dy
dx
= −1.
42. Let P(x
0
, y
0
) be a point where a line through the origin is tangent to the curve
2x
2
−4x +y
2
+ 1 = 0. Implicit differentiation applied to the equation of the curve gives
dy/dx = (2 −2x)/y. At P the slope of the curve must equal the slope of the line so
(2 −2x
0
)/y
0
= y
0
/x
0
, or y
2
0
= 2x
0
(1 −x
0
). But 2x
2
0
−4x
0
+y
2
0
+ 1 = 0 because (x
0
, y
0
) is on the
curve, and elimination of y
2
0
in the latter two equations gives 2x
0
= 4x
0
−1, x
0
= 1/2 which when
substituted into y
2
0
= 2x
0
(1 − x
0
) yields y
2
0
= 1/2, so y
0
= ±

2/2. The slopes of the lines are


2/2)/(1/2) = ±

(quotient) is the sum (difference) of the logarithms.
47. The area of the triangle PQR, given by |PQ||QR|/2 is required.
|PQ| = w, and, by Exercise 45 Part (b), |QR| = 1, so area = w/2.

48. Since y = 2 ln x, let y = 2z; then z = ln x and we apply the result of Exercise 45 to find that the
area is, in the x-z plane, w/2. In the x-y plane, since y = 2z, the vertical dimension gets doubled,
so the area is w.
49. If x = 0 then y = ln e = 1, and
dy

x +e
. But e
y
= x +e, so
dy

50. Let y = −ln(a −x), then
dy

=

a −x
. But e
y

, so
dy
dx
= e
y
.
If x = 0 then y = −ln(a) = −2 provided a = e
2
, so y = −ln(e
2
−x).
51. Let y = ln(x+a). Following Exercise 49 we get
dy
dx
=
1
x +a
= e
−y
, and when x = 0, y = ln(a) = 0
if a = 1, so let a = 1, then y = ln(x + 1).
52. Let y = −ln(a −x), then
dy
dx
=
1
a −x
. But e
y
=
1
a −x
, so
dy
dx
= e
y
.
If x = 0 then y = −ln(a) = −ln 2 provided a = 2, so y = −ln(2 −x).

11. Let P(a, b) be given, not on the line y = x. Let Q be its reflection across the line y = x, yet to be
determined. Let Q
1
have coordinates (b, a).
(a) Since P does not lie on y = x, we have a = b, i.e. P = Q
1
since they have different abscissas.
The line

PQ
1
has slope (b − a)/(a −b) = −1 which is the negative reciprocal of m = 1 and
so the two lines are perpendicular.
(b) Let (c, d) be the midpoint of the segment PQ
1
. Then c = (a + b)/2 and d = (b + a)/2 so
c = d and the midpoint is on y = x.
(c) Let Q(c, d) be the reflection of P through y = x. By definition this means P and Q lie on a
line perpendicular to the line y = x and the midpoint of P and Q lies on y = x.
(d) Since the line through P and Q
1
is perpendicular to the line y = x it is parallel to the line
through P and Q; since both pass through P they are the same line. Finally, since the
midpoints of P and Q
1
and of P and Q both lie on y = x, they are the same point, and
consequently Q = Q
1
.
12. Let (a, b) and (A, B) be points on a line with slope m. Then m = (B −b)/(A −a). Consider the
associated points (B, A) and (b, a). The line through these two points has slope (A −a)/(B −b),
which is the reciprocal of m. Thus (B, A) and (b, a) define the line with slope 1/m. Moreover, the
line through (A, B) and (B, A) has slope −1 and is thus perpendicular to the line y = x.
13. If x < y then f(x) ≤ f(y) and g(x) ≤ g(y); thus f(x) +g(x) ≤ f(y) +g(y). Moreover, g(x) ≤ g(y),
so f(g(x)) ≤ f(g(y)). Note that f(x)g(x) need not be increasing, e.g. f(x) = g(x) = x, both
increasing for all x, yet f(x)g(x) = x
2
, not an increasing function.
14. On [0, 1] let f(x) = x − 2, g(x) = 2 − x, then f and g are one-to-one but f + g is not. If
f(x) = x + 1, g(x) = 1/(x + 1) then f and g are one-to-one but fg is not. Finally, if f and g
are one-to-one and if f(g(x)) = f(g(y)) then, because f is one-to-one, g(x) = g(y), and since g is
one-to-one, x = y, so f(g(x)) is one-to-one.

(x) > 0 (f is
increasing) if x < 1 −

3/3, f

(x) < 0 (f is decreasing) if 1 −

3/3 < x < 1 +

3/3, so f(x)
takes on values less than f(1 −

3/3) on both sides of 1 −

3/3 thus 1 −

3/3 is the largest
value of k.
62. (a) f(x) = x

(x−3/2), f

(x) = 0 when x = 0 or 3/2; f is decreasing on (−∞, 3/2]
and increasing on [3/2, +∞) so 3/2 is the smallest value of k.
63. (a) f

(x) = 4x
3

(b) F

(x) so F

(3) = 2f

(2g(3))g

(3). By inspection f(1) = 3, so
g(3) = f
−1
(3) = 1 and g

(3) = (f
−1

(3) = 1/f

(f
−1
(3)) = 1/f

(1) = 1/7 because
f

(x) = 4x
3
+ 3x
2
. Thus F

(3) = 2f

(2)(1/7) = 2(44)(1/7) = 88/7.
F(3) = f(2g(3)) = f(2·1) = f(2) = 25, so the line tangent to F(x) at (3, 25) has the equation
y −25 = (88/7)(x −3), y = (88/7)x −89/7.

23. (a) If x denotes the altitude, then r − x = 3960, the radius of the Earth. θ = 0 at perigee, so
r = 4995/1.12 ≈ 4460; the altitude is x = 4460 − 3960 = 500 miles. θ = π at apogee, so
r = 4995/0.88 ≈ 5676; the altitude is x = 5676 −3960 = 1716 miles.
(b) If θ = 120

(b) Let y be the distance between the observation point and the aircraft. Then y = 4000 csc θ
so dy/dt = −4000(csc θ cot θ)(dθ/dt). Use θ = 30

(1)(x −1) = 1 + 3(x −1)
(b) f(1 + ∆x) ≈ f(1) +f

(1)∆x = 1 + 3∆x
(c) From Part (a), (1.02)

2. (a) f(x) ≈ f(2) +f

(2)(x −2) = 1/2 + (−1/2

(b) f(2 + ∆x) ≈ f(2) +f

(2)∆x = 1/2 −(1/4)∆x
(c) From Part (a), 1/2.05 ≈ 0.5 −0.25(0.05) = 0.4875, and from Part (b),
1/2.05 ≈ 0.5 −0.25(0.05) = 0.4875.

(x

x = −0.1, we have

0.9 = f(−0.1) ≈ 1 + (1/2)(−0.1) = 1 − 0.05 = 0.95. With x = 0.1 we

a calculator gives sin 1

10. Let P(x
0
, y
0
) be the required point. The slope of the line 4x − 3y + 1 = 0 is 4/3 so the slope of
the tangent to y
2
= 2x
3
at P must be −3/4. By implicit differentiation dy/dx = 3x
2
/y, so at P,
3x
2
0
/y
0
= −3/4, or y
0
= −4x
2
0
. But y
2
0
= 2x
3
0
because P is on the curve y
2
= 2x
3
. Elimination of
y
0
gives 16x
4
0
= 2x
3
0
, x
3
0
(8x
0
− 1) = 0, so x
0
= 0 or 1/8. From y
0
= −4x
2
0
it follows that y
0
= 0
when x
0
= 0, and y
0
= −1/16 when x
0
= 1/8. It does not follow, however, that (0, 0) is a solution
because dy/dx = 3x
2
/y (the slope of the curve as determined by implicit differentiation) is valid
only if y = 0. Further analysis shows that the curve is tangent to the x-axis at (0, 0), so the point
(1/8, −1/16) is the only solution.
11. Substitute y = mx into x
2
+xy +y
2
= 4 to get x
2
+mx
2
+m
2
x
2
= 4, which has distinct solutions
x = ±2/

m
2
+m+ 1. They are distinct because m
2
+ m + 1 = (m + 1/2)
2
+ 3/4 ≥ 3/4, so
m
2
+m+ 1 is never zero.
Note that the points of intersection occur in pairs (x
0
, y
0
) and (−x
0
, −y
0
). By implicit differenti-
ation, the slope of the tangent line to the ellipse is given by
dy/dx = −(2x + y)/(x + 2y). Since the slope is unchanged if we replace (x, y) with (−x, −y), it
follows that the slopes are equal at the two point of intersection.
Finally we must examine the special case x = 0 which cannot be written in the form y = mx. If
x = 0 then y = ±2, and the formula for dy/dx gives dy/dx = −1/2, so the slopes are equal.
12. By implicit differentiation, 3x
2
−y −xy

+3y
2
y

= 0, so y

= (3x
2
−y)/(x −3y
2
). This derivative
is zero when y = 3x
2
. Substituting this into the original equation x
3
−xy +y
3
= 0, one has
x
3
−3x
3
+ 27x
6
= 0, x
3
(27x
3
−2) = 0. The unique solution in the first quadrant is
x = 2
1/3
/3, y = 3x
2
= 2
2/3
/3
Use implicit differentiation to get dy/dx = (y−3x
2
)/(3y
2
−x), so dy/dx = 0 if y = 3x
2
. Substitute
this into x
3
−xy +y
3
= 0 to obtain 27x
6
−2x
3
= 0, x
3
= 2/27, x =

2/3 and hence y =

4/3.
13. By implicit differentiation, 3x
2
−y −xy

+3y
2
y

= 0, so y

= (3x
2
−y)/(x −3y
2
). This derivative
exists except when x = 3y
2
. Substituting this into the original equation x
3
−xy +y
3
= 0, one has
27y
6
−3y
3
+y
3
= 0, y
3
(27y
3
−2) = 0. The unique solution in the first quadrant is
y = 2
1/3
/3, x = 3y
2
= 2
2/3
/3
14. By implicit differentiation, dy/dx = k/(2y) so the slope of the tangent to y
2
= kx at (x
0
, y
0
) is
k/(2y
0
) if y
0
= 0. The tangent line in this case is y −y
0
=
k
2y
0
(x −x
0
), or 2y
0
y −2y
2
0
= kx −kx
0
.
But y
2
0
= kx
0
because (x
0
, y
0
) is on the curve y
2
= kx, so the equation of the tangent line becomes
2y
0
y − 2kx
0
= kx − kx
0
which gives y
0
y = k(x + x
0
)/2. If y
0
= 0, then x
0
= 0; the graph of
y
2
= kx has a vertical tangent at (0, 0) so its equation is x = 0, but y
0
y = k(x + x
0
)/2 gives the
same result when x
0
= y
0
= 0.

MAKING CONNECTIONS, CHAPTER 3
1. (a) If t > 0 then A(−t) is the amount K there was t time-units ago in order that there be 1 unit
now, i.e. K · A(t) = 1, so K =
1
A(t)
. But, as said above, K = A(−t). So A(−t) =
1
A(t)
.
(b) (i) If s and t are positive, then the amount 1 becomes A(s) after s seconds, and that in turn
is A(s)A(t) after another t seconds, i.e. 1 becomes A(s)A(t) after s + t seconds. But this
amount is also A(s +t), so A(s)A(t) = A(s +t).
(ii) If 0 ≤ −s ≤ t then A(−s)A(s +t) = A(t). From Part (i) we get A(s +t) = A(s)A(t).
(iii) If 0 ≤ t ≤ −s then A(s +t) =
1
A(−s −t)
=
1
A(−s)A(−t)
= A(s)A(t)
by Parts (i) and (ii).
(iv) If s and t are both negative then by Part (i),
A(s +t) =

A(−s −t)

A(−s)A(−t)

30. (a) The equation and the point (1, 1) are both symmetric in x and y (if you interchange the two variables you get the same equation and the same point). Therefore the outcome ”horizontal tangent at (1, 1) could be replaced by ”vertical tangent at (1, 1)”, and these cannot both be the case. dy 2x − y (b) Implicit differentiation yields = , which is zero only if y = 2x; coupled with the dx x − 2y √ √ 2 2 2 equation x √ xy + y = 1 we obtain x − 2x2 + 4x2 = 1, or 3x2 = 1, x = ( 3/3, 2 3/3) and − √ (− 3/3, −2 3/3) 31.

(c) x2 − x − (y 4 + y 2 ) = 0, so by the Quadratic Formula, x = and we have the two parabolas x = −y 2 , x = 1 + y 2 . 32. By implicit differentiation, 2y(2y 2 + 1)

33. Solve the simultaneous equations y = x, x2 −xy+y 2 = 4 to get x2 −x2 +x2 = 4, x = ±2, y = x = ±2, so the points of intersection are (2, 2) and (−2, −2). dy y − 2x dy dy By implicit differentiation, = . When x = y = 2, = −1; when x = y = −2, = −1; dx 2y − x dx dx the slopes are equal. 34. Suppose a2 − 2ab + b2 = 4. Then (−a)2 − 2(−a)(−b) + (−b)2 = a2 − 2ab + b2 = 4 so if P (a, b) lies on C then so does Q(−a, −b). dy y − 2x dy b − 2a By implicit differentiation (see Exercise 33), = . When x = a, y = b then = , dx 2y − x dx 2b − a dy b − 2a and when x = −a, y = −b, then = , so the slopes at P and Q are equal. dx 2b − a 35. The point (1,1) is on the graph, so 1 + a = b. The slope of the tangent line at (1,1) is −4/3; use dy 2xy 2 4 implicit differentiation to get =− 2 so at (1,1), − = − , 1 + 2a = 3/2, a = 1/4 dx x + 2ay 1 + 2a 3 and hence b = 1 + 1/4 = 5/4. 36. The slope of the line x + 2y − 2 = 0 is m1 = −1/2, so the line perpendicular has slope m = 2 (negative reciprocal). The slope of the curve y 3 = 2x2 can be obtained by implicit differentiation: dy dy 4x dy 4x = 4x, = 2 . Set = 2; 2 = 2, x = (3/2)y 2 . Use this in the equation of the curve: 3y 2 dx dx 3y dx 3y 2 3 2 2 y 3 = 2x2 = 2((3/2)y 2 )2 = (9/2)y 4 , y = 2/9, x = . = 2 9 27 37. We shall find when the curves intersect and check that the slopes are negative reciprocals. For the intersection solve the simultaneous equations x2 + (y − c)2 = c2 and (x − k)2 + y 2 = k 2 to obtain y−c x−k 1 =− . cy = kx = (x2 + y 2 ). Thus x2 + y 2 = cy + kx, or y 2 − cy = −x2 + kx, and 2 x y dy x dy x−k Differentiating the two families yields (black) =− , and (gray) =− . But it was dx y−c dx y proven that these quantities are negative reciprocals of each other. dy dy 38. Differentiating, we get the equations (black) x + y = 0 and (gray) 2x − 2y = 0. The first dx dx x y says the (black) slope is = − and the second says the (gray) slope is , and these are negative x y reciprocals of each other. 39. (a)

(b) x ≈ 0.84 (c) Use implicit differentiation to get dy/dx = (2y −3x2 )/(3y 2 −2x), so dy/dx = 0 if y = (3/2)x2 . Substitute this into x3 − 2xy + y 3 = 0 to obtain 27x6 − 16x3 = 0, x3 = 16/27, x = 24/3 /3 and hence y = 25/3 /3.

But 2x2 − 4x0 + y0 + 1 = 0 because (x0 . 4. so dy/dx = −1 if 2y −3x2 = −3y 2 + 2x.

Note that the points of intersection occur in pairs (x0 . it follows that the slopes are equal at the two point of intersection. so x0 = 0 or 1/8. The unique solution in the first quadrant is y = 21/3 /3. the slope of the tangent line to the ellipse is given by dy/dx = −(2x + y)/(x + 2y). or 2y0 y − 2y0 = kx − kx0 . By implicit differentiation. x0 (8x0 − 1) = 0. If y0 = 0. By implicit differentiation. 11. 15. 0) is a solution because dy/dx = 3x2 /y (the slope of the curve as determined by implicit differentiation) is valid only if y = 0. then x0 = 0. dy/dx = 2 3 4 1 + − − x+1 x+2 x+3 x+4 16. 2 3x2 /y0 = −3/4. x3 (27x3 − 2) = 0. y0 ) and (−x0 . −1/16) is the only solution. so m2 + m + 1 is never zero. The unique solution in the first quadrant is x = 21/3 /3. This derivative is zero when y = 3x2 . The slope of the line 4x − 3y + 1 = 0 is 4/3 so the slope of the tangent to y 2 = 2x3 at P must be −3/4. 3x2 − y − xy + 3y 2 y = 0. Let P (x0 . If x = 0 then y = ±2. so y = (3x2 − y)/(x − 3y 2 ). But y0 = 2x3 because P is on the curve y 2 = 2x3 . so dy/dx = 0 if y = 3x2 . and the formula for dy/dx gives dy/dx = −1/2. 12. dy/dx = k/(2y) so the slope of the tangent to y 2 = kx at (x0 .
