146477 Week 3 Quiz: Dierential Calculus: The Derivative and Rules of Dierentiation

### Question 1:Find limx!3f(x):

f(x) =x29x3 (A) +1 (B) -6 (C) 6 (D) Does not exist! (E) None of the above Answer:(C) Note the the functionf(x) =x29x3=(x3)(x+3)x3=x+ 3 is actually a line. However it is important to note the this function isundenedatx= 3. Why?x= 3 requires dividing by zero (which is inadmissible). Asxapproaches 3 from below and from above, the value of the functionf(x) approachesf(3) = 6. Thus the limit limx!3f(x) = 6.

### Question 2:Find limx!2f(x):

f(x) = 1776 (A) +1 (B) 1770 (C)1 (D) Does not exist! (E) None of the above Answer:(E) The limit of any constant function at any point, sayf(x) =C, whereCis an arbitrary constant, is simplyC. Thus the correct answer is limx!2f(x) = 1776.

### Question 3:Find limx!4f(x):

f(x) =ax2+bx+c (A) +1 (B) 16a + 4b + c (C)1 (D) Does not exist! (E) None of the above 1

### Answer:(B) Applying the rules of limits:

lim x!4ax2+bx+c= limx!4ax2+ limx!4bx+ limx!4c =a[limx!4x]2+blimx!4x+c = 16a+ 4b+c

### Question 4:Find the limits in each case:

(i) lim x!0x 2jxj (ii) lim x!32x+34x9 (iii) lim x!6x

#### 2jxj= limx!0(jxj)2jxj= limx!0jxj= 0

(ii) limx!32x+34x9=23+3439= 3 (iii) limx!6x

#### 23xx+3=62366+3

= 2 Question 5:Show that limx!0sinx= 0 (Hint:xsinxxfor allx0.) Answer:Given hint and squeeze theorem we have limx!0x= 0limx!0sinx0 = limx!0xhence, lim x to0sinx= 0

### Question 6:Show that limx!0xsin(1x

) = 0 Answer:Note rst that for any real numbertwe have1sint1 so1sin(1x )1. Therefore, xxsin(1x )xand by squeeze theorem limx!0xsin1x = 0.

### Continuity and Dierentiability

Question 7:Which of the following functions areNOTeverywhere continuous: (A)f(x) =x24x+2 (B)f(x) = (x+ 3)4 (C)f(x) = 1066 (D)f(x) =mx+b (E) None of the above Answer:(A) Remember that, informally at least, acontinuousfunction is one in which there are no

breaks its curve. A continuous function can be drawn without lifting your pencil from the paper. More

formally, a functionf(x) iscontinuousat the pointx=aif and only if:

x!af(x) exists,

#### 3. lim

x!af(x) =f(a) The functionf(x) =x24x+2is not everywhere continuous because the function is not dened at the point x=2. It is worth noting that limx!2f(x) does in fact exist!The existence of a limit at a point does not guarantee that the function is continuous at that point! 2 Question 8:Which of the following functions are continuous: (A)f(x) =jxj (B)f(x) =3x <4 12 x+ 3x4 (C)f(x) =1x (D)f(x) =lnx x <0 0x= 0 (E) None of the above Answer:(A) The absolute value functionf(x) =jxjis dened as: f(x) =x x0 x x <0 Does this function satisfy the requirements for continuity? Yes! The critical point to check isx= 0. Note that the function is dened atx= 0; the limx!0f(x) exists; and that limx!0f(x) = 0 =f(0). Question 9:Which of the following functions areNOTdierentiable: (A)f(x) =jxj (B)f(x) = (x+ 3)4 (C)f(x) = 1066 (D)f(x) =mx+b (E) None of the above Answer:(A) Remember that continuity is anecessarycondition for dierentiability (i.e., every dier- entiable function is continuous), but continuity is not asucientcondition to ensure dierentiability

(i.e., not every continuous function is dierentiable). Case in point isf(x) =jxj. This function is in

fact continuous (see previous question). It is not however dierentiable at the pointx= 0. Why? The pointx= 0 is a cusp (or kink). There are an innite number of lines that could be tangent to the functionf(x) =jxjat the pointx= 0, and thus the derivative off(x) would have an innite number of possible values.

### Question 10:Is function

f(x) =0 :x= 0 xsin(1=x) :x6= 0 continuous at point 0?

### Answer:Note thatfis continuous at a pointaif

lim x!af(x) =f(limx!ax):

### In this case, we takea= 0 and

lim x!0f(x) = limx!0xsin(1=x) = 0 by question 6. Moreover, f(limx!0x) =f(0) = 0 thus,fis continuous at 0. 3

### Derivatives

Question 11:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) = 1963 (A) +1 (B) 1963 (C)1 (D) 0 (E) None of the above Answer:(D) The derivative of a constant function is always zero. Question 12:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) =x2+ 6x+ 9 (A)f0(x) = 2x+ 6 + 9 (B)f0(x) =x2+ 6 (C)f0(x) = 2x+ 6 (D)f0(x) = 2x (E) None of the above

Answer:(C) Remember that 1) the derivative of a sum of functions is simply the sum of the derivatives

of each of the functions, and 2) the power rule for derivatives says that iff(x) =kxn, thenf0(x) = nkx n1. Thusf0(x) = 2x21+ 6x11+ 0 = 2x+ 6. Question 13:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) =x12 (A)f0(x) =12 px (B)f0(x) =1px (C)f0(x) =12 px (D)f0(x) =px (E) None of the above Answer:(C) Remember that the power rule for derivatives works with fractional exponents as well!

### Thusf0(x) =12

x12 1=12 x12 =12 px Question 14:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) = 5x2(x+ 47) (A)f0(x) = 15x2+ 470x (B)f0(x) = 5x2+ 470x (C)f0(x) = 10x (D)f0(x) = 15x2470x 4 (E) None of the above Answer:(A) Ideally, you would solve this problem by applying the product rule. Setg(x) = 5x2and h(x) = (x+ 47), thenf(x) =g(x)h(x). Apply the product rule: f

#### 0(x) =g0(x)h(x) +g(x)h0(x)

= 10x(x+ 47) + 5x2(1) = 10x2+ 470x+ 5x2 = 15x2+ 470x Question 15:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) =5x2x+ 47 (A)f0(x) =5x2470x(x+47)2 (B)f0(x) =10x2+470x(x+47) (C)f0(x) = 10x (D)f0(x) =5x2+470(x+47)2 (E) None of the above Answer:(A) Ideally, you would solve this problem by applying the quotient rule. Setg(x) = 5x2and h(x) = (x+ 47), thenf(x) =g(x)h(x). Apply the quotient rule: f

#### 5x2+ 470x(x+ 47)2

Question 16:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) = 5(x+ 47)2 (A)f0(x) = 15x2+ 470x (B)f0(x) = 10x470 Week 3 Quiz: Dierential Calculus: The Derivative and Rules of Dierentiation

### Question 1:Find limx!3f(x):

f(x) =x29x3 (A) +1 (B) -6 (C) 6 (D) Does not exist! (E) None of the above Answer:(C) Note the the functionf(x) =x29x3=(x3)(x+3)x3=x+ 3 is actually a line. However it is important to note the this function isundenedatx= 3. Why?x= 3 requires dividing by zero (which is inadmissible). Asxapproaches 3 from below and from above, the value of the functionf(x) approachesf(3) = 6. Thus the limit limx!3f(x) = 6.

### Question 2:Find limx!2f(x):

f(x) = 1776 (A) +1 (B) 1770 (C)1 (D) Does not exist! (E) None of the above Answer:(E) The limit of any constant function at any point, sayf(x) =C, whereCis an arbitrary constant, is simplyC. Thus the correct answer is limx!2f(x) = 1776.

### Question 3:Find limx!4f(x):

f(x) =ax2+bx+c (A) +1 (B) 16a + 4b + c (C)1 (D) Does not exist! (E) None of the above 1

### Answer:(B) Applying the rules of limits:

lim x!4ax2+bx+c= limx!4ax2+ limx!4bx+ limx!4c =a[limx!4x]2+blimx!4x+c = 16a+ 4b+c

### Question 4:Find the limits in each case:

(i) lim x!0x 2jxj (ii) lim x!32x+34x9 (iii) lim x!6x

#### 2jxj= limx!0(jxj)2jxj= limx!0jxj= 0

(ii) limx!32x+34x9=23+3439= 3 (iii) limx!6x

#### 23xx+3=62366+3

= 2 Question 5:Show that limx!0sinx= 0 (Hint:xsinxxfor allx0.) Answer:Given hint and squeeze theorem we have limx!0x= 0limx!0sinx0 = limx!0xhence, lim x to0sinx= 0

### Question 6:Show that limx!0xsin(1x

) = 0 Answer:Note rst that for any real numbertwe have1sint1 so1sin(1x )1. Therefore, xxsin(1x )xand by squeeze theorem limx!0xsin1x = 0.

### Continuity and Dierentiability

Question 7:Which of the following functions areNOTeverywhere continuous: (A)f(x) =x24x+2 (B)f(x) = (x+ 3)4 (C)f(x) = 1066 (D)f(x) =mx+b (E) None of the above Answer:(A) Remember that, informally at least, acontinuousfunction is one in which there are no

breaks its curve. A continuous function can be drawn without lifting your pencil from the paper. More

formally, a functionf(x) iscontinuousat the pointx=aif and only if:

x!af(x) exists,

#### 3. lim

x!af(x) =f(a) The functionf(x) =x24x+2is not everywhere continuous because the function is not dened at the point x=2. It is worth noting that limx!2f(x) does in fact exist!The existence of a limit at a point does not guarantee that the function is continuous at that point! 2 Question 8:Which of the following functions are continuous: (A)f(x) =jxj (B)f(x) =3x <4 12 x+ 3x4 (C)f(x) =1x (D)f(x) =lnx x <0 0x= 0 (E) None of the above Answer:(A) The absolute value functionf(x) =jxjis dened as: f(x) =x x0 x x <0 Does this function satisfy the requirements for continuity? Yes! The critical point to check isx= 0. Note that the function is dened atx= 0; the limx!0f(x) exists; and that limx!0f(x) = 0 =f(0). Question 9:Which of the following functions areNOTdierentiable: (A)f(x) =jxj (B)f(x) = (x+ 3)4 (C)f(x) = 1066 (D)f(x) =mx+b (E) None of the above Answer:(A) Remember that continuity is anecessarycondition for dierentiability (i.e., every dier- entiable function is continuous), but continuity is not asucientcondition to ensure dierentiability

(i.e., not every continuous function is dierentiable). Case in point isf(x) =jxj. This function is in

fact continuous (see previous question). It is not however dierentiable at the pointx= 0. Why? The pointx= 0 is a cusp (or kink). There are an innite number of lines that could be tangent to the functionf(x) =jxjat the pointx= 0, and thus the derivative off(x) would have an innite number of possible values.

### Question 10:Is function

f(x) =0 :x= 0 xsin(1=x) :x6= 0 continuous at point 0?

### Answer:Note thatfis continuous at a pointaif

lim x!af(x) =f(limx!ax):

### In this case, we takea= 0 and

lim x!0f(x) = limx!0xsin(1=x) = 0 by question 6. Moreover, f(limx!0x) =f(0) = 0 thus,fis continuous at 0. 3

### Derivatives

Question 11:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) = 1963 (A) +1 (B) 1963 (C)1 (D) 0 (E) None of the above Answer:(D) The derivative of a constant function is always zero. Question 12:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) =x2+ 6x+ 9 (A)f0(x) = 2x+ 6 + 9 (B)f0(x) =x2+ 6 (C)f0(x) = 2x+ 6 (D)f0(x) = 2x (E) None of the above

Answer:(C) Remember that 1) the derivative of a sum of functions is simply the sum of the derivatives

of each of the functions, and 2) the power rule for derivatives says that iff(x) =kxn, thenf0(x) = nkx n1. Thusf0(x) = 2x21+ 6x11+ 0 = 2x+ 6. Question 13:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) =x12 (A)f0(x) =12 px (B)f0(x) =1px (C)f0(x) =12 px (D)f0(x) =px (E) None of the above Answer:(C) Remember that the power rule for derivatives works with fractional exponents as well!

### Thusf0(x) =12

x12 1=12 x12 =12 px Question 14:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) = 5x2(x+ 47) (A)f0(x) = 15x2+ 470x (B)f0(x) = 5x2+ 470x (C)f0(x) = 10x (D)f0(x) = 15x2470x 4 (E) None of the above Answer:(A) Ideally, you would solve this problem by applying the product rule. Setg(x) = 5x2and h(x) = (x+ 47), thenf(x) =g(x)h(x). Apply the product rule: f

#### 0(x) =g0(x)h(x) +g(x)h0(x)

= 10x(x+ 47) + 5x2(1) = 10x2+ 470x+ 5x2 = 15x2+ 470x Question 15:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) =5x2x+ 47 (A)f0(x) =5x2470x(x+47)2 (B)f0(x) =10x2+470x(x+47) (C)f0(x) = 10x (D)f0(x) =5x2+470(x+47)2 (E) None of the above Answer:(A) Ideally, you would solve this problem by applying the quotient rule. Setg(x) = 5x2and h(x) = (x+ 47), thenf(x) =g(x)h(x). Apply the quotient rule: f

#### 5x2+ 470x(x+ 47)2

Question 16:Find the derivative of the following function: f(x) = 5(x+ 47)2 (A)f0(x) = 15x2+ 470x (B)f0(x) = 10x470
