Use the derivative to find all intervals on which the function λ( x ) = e x +x +1 is increasing or decreasing. 2 3.

Rewrite the function below using negative exponents. Then use the chain and product rules to derive the quotient rule. h (x ) = f (x ) g( x) .10. .

In Figure 2. graph the derivative to f. given by dx = f ' ( x ) . Use related rates to show that the velocity in the x direction and the velocity in the y direction can never both be positive or both be negative at the same time. The graph of the solution set to a function given by y = f ( x ) appears in Figure 1.

More than one answer may be Correct. 16. R is a function of time that determines the rate at which the disease is spreading throughout the population. For years. From this we can conclude that ______ . then according to the Mean Value Theorem. If we looked at the graph of the position of the car vs. a) the derivative of f is increasing b) c) d) e) the function. Buxton has warned us of the pending zombie apocalypse—but. we can conclude that ______ . R ' (t ) must equal P/T c) the maximal rate at which people are being turned into zombies can be computed by computing where R ' (t ) = 0 d) if R ' (t ) < 0 then that would imply that zombies were being killed e) one day before the entire world population is converted to zombies R ' ( t ) will equal zero. But only one answer is the best answer. 18. a) b) c) d) e) the first derivative has a higher value in fourth gear than it does in second gear the second derivative reaches its largest value in first gear the second derivative is maximal when the car is in fifth gear the first derivative is zero each time the car shifts gears both the first and second derivatives are increasing in all gears 17. at some point in time. f is increasing both the derivative of f and f itself are increasing the function f is positive the function is both positive and increasing . from that information. The driver of a Porsche starts his car from rest and accelerates as quickly as his car’s engine will allow to a speed of 200 km/h. f '(x ) >0 indicates that _____ . it will hold that R (t ) will be positive b) if it takes T days for all of the people to turn into zombies and there are P people living on Earth. to no avail. Dr.Directions: Choose the best answer for each of the following. time. a) the day after the entire world population is converted to zombies. Suppose that once the zombie apocalypse virus is released into the population.

f ' ( x ) = − ∞ . this implies that ______ . d. c. . below. 19. and e are located on the next page – You may rip off that page if doing so makes it easier to work this problem. The derivative of f is given in figure 2. If we know that xlim →4 a) the function is undefined at x = 4 b) the derivative is decreasing on an open interval containing 4 c) the function has a horizontal asymptote at x = 4 d) e) x →4− lim f ( x ) = − ∞ = x →4 lim+ f ( x ) x →4− lim f ( x ) = − ∞ and lim+ f ( x ) = ∞ x →4 20. a) Figure a b) Figure b c) Figure c d) Figure d e) Figure e Figure 2 Figures a.
