The no calculator portion of the test

1) (27pts) Find derivatives of the following functions:

a) g(s)  sin2 (s)



b) f(x)  cos(cos(6x))



c) g(t)  t sin(t)  t

Exam II                      Name_____________________________
(Make your calculator feel wanted-Use it!!)

3)(10pts)
a) Consider the family of functions of the form f ( x)  xe  bx
Find the exact location of the critical points (x and y coordinates) of this function and describe
how increasing 'b' affects the location of the critical point.




b) Find the exact location of the point of inflection




\
4)(10pts) a) Find any local maxima or minima for f(x)=x-ln(x) ( specify the reasoning used to
determine whether the points found are maxima or minima.




b) What is the global minimum and global maximum for this function over the
interval [ .01,10] ?
5)(10pts)a) Find dy/dx for the implicit function xy  y 2  1




b) Explain why the function above has no horizontal tangent for any value of x.
6) (10pts) Using the chain rule and the formula for the derivative of y  e x , derive the
formula for the derivative of ln( x) .




7)(10pts) A commuter train carries 800 passengers each day. It costs $1.25 to ride the train. For
every 5 cent increase in the fare, 20 fewer people will take the train. The train has fixed operating
costs of $300 each day-
a) at a $1.35 fare (ie 2 nickels more than $1.25) how much money will the train take in?




b) Find the fare that maximizes revenue.
8)((10pts)A rectangular sheet of paper is to contain 72 square inches of printed matter with
2 inch margins at top and bottom and 1 inch margins on the sides. What dimensions for
the sheet will use the least amount of paper?
9)(10pts) Below the derivative of f(x) ie y  f  is graphed.
                                                 (x)
a) Say where the local maxima and minima of f occur, and for each one say whether it is a local
max or a local min. (Remember this is a graph of the derivative of f (x))




b) Estimate where any points of inflection for f(x) are.(By the way-did I mention that this is a
graph of the derivative of f (x)?????)
