APPLIED CALCULUS I, FALL 2010 SECTION B: Professor Szeto



NAME:
STUDENT #:


Final Exam 13 December 2010, 19:00-22:00

No other aids except a non-graphing calculator is allowed.

ANSWER AS MANY QUESTIONS AS YOU CAN. All questions carry equal marks. In all
questions it is essential to explain your reasoning and to provide details of the intermediate steps
taken in reaching your answers.

Answers are to be written in this question book. Do not remove any pages. IF you need extra space for your
answers use the backs of pages, but CLEARLY indicate which answer is which! Make sure to write your
name and student number on the paper.

Students will not be allowed to leave during the final 15 minutes of the examination period in order to avoid
disruption to those continuing to work on the paper.

Question 1.

Find the natural domains and ranges of the functions:

a) g(x) = tan(%-x) b) f(x) = 1/(4+e

Question 3. The function f(x) = x -
2
x

refers to all part questions below.

a) Where is the function continuous? Where is the function not continuous?
b) Consider the following statement:
f(-2) = -1, f(2) = 1. Therefore the Intermediate Value Theorem assures us that
there must be at least one value of c between -2 and 2, such that f(c)=0.
Do you agree with the statement? If you do not, explain why not.
Required: begin by explaining the IVT.
c) If you believe that the Mean Value Theorem applies to f(x) given above on the
interval [-2,2], find one value of x between -2 and 2 that satisfies the theorem. If
you believe that the theorem does not apply, explain why not. Required: begin by
explaining the MVT.

the following derivative

b) At what values of x, if any, is dy/dx undefined?




Question 6.

Make an analysis (natural domain, range, symmetry if any, asymptotes if any,
increasing/decreasing regions, relative and absolute max and min if any, concave up/down
regions, points of inflection if any, etc.) of the function
!
y(x) = e
1
x
.
Sketch the curve, labelling axes, intercepts if any, asymptotes if any, points of max and min if any,
and points of inflection if any. Clearly indicate intervals of x where the function is increasing or
decreasing, and the curve is concave up or concave down.




Question 7.
An isosceles triangle (i.e. a triangle with two equal sides) BCG
circumscribes a circle of radius 1m, as shown in the diagram. Angle ! has
been introduced for convenience of reference, as well as several points
B,C,D,E,F,G. Let A denote the area of triangle BCG.
a) Show that A is related ! via
!
A =
(1+sin")
2
cos" sin"
.
[Hint: work out lengths CD and FG in terms of ! by considering
appropriate triangles CDE and CFG.]
b) Show that A is minimized if
!
" = # / 6.
[You are required to demonstrate that a minimum rather than a
minimum is reached by applying an appropriate test. First derivative
test is recommended since it is easier.]
