# MATHEMATICS 17 First Semester A.Y.

2014-2015
Sample Third Examination 29 October 29
This exam is for 75 minutes only. Use only black or blue pen. Provide NEAT and COMPLETE
and ORGANIZED solutions. Box all final answers. Calculators are not allowed.
I. Write TRUE if the statement is correct. Otherwise, write FALSE.
1. Let a R, a > 0, a 6= 1. Let f (x) = ax and g(x) = loga x. The domain of (f g)(x) is (0, +).
2. If for some x (0, +), ln x N, then x = en for some n N.
3. Suppose f (x) is a polynomial function with real coefficients. If f (r) 6= 0 for all r R, then f (x)
cannot be expressed as a product of degree one polynomial functions with real coefficients.
4. If a polynomial function is divided by a polynomial function of degree two, then the remainder is
a polynomial function of degree one.
5. Suppose a function f has an inverse. If f is strictly increasing, then so is f 1 .
II. Find the solution set. Show the verification of solutions, if necessary.

3. 9x + 30 = 31(3x ) (Assume log 3 = 0.48, and express x in terms of this.)
4. 2 log(x+1) (3x 1) = 2 + log(x+1) 4
5. log2 (x2 + 3) log2 (x + 2) = 2

## III. Consider f (x) = 2x4 5x3 + 3x2 + 4x 6. Do as indicated.

1. List all the possible rational zeros of f (x).
2. Find all complex zeroes of f (x).
IV. Solve the following problems completely.

1. If h(x) = ln(x + x2 1, find h1 and ranh1 .
2. The sum of all the terms of a finite arithmetic progression is 75. If the common difference is 2 and
the third term is 17, how many terms are there?

5. The sum of the first six terms of a geometric progression is nine times the sum of the first three
terms of that geometric progression. Determine the common ratio of the geometric progression.
6. Let f (x) = 29 + 26x + 23x2 + + tk xk be a polynomial function whose coefficients form an
arithmetic progression. Determine the value of k so that the remainder when f (x) is divided by
(x 1) is 10.
7. Show that the sum of an odd number of terms in an arithmetic progression is equal to the middle
term multiplied by the number of terms.
