You do not need to show your work for this one because I would simply like to compare your answers with mine so that I am sure that I did everything correct on mine. Please just write your answer after each number. I will know which problems I will have to study in detail with your help. Thank you very much.

You gave me this kind of format last time:

(12)

12. f'(x) = 1/(1-x)^2

Thanks!

1. Find all the critical numbers: .
2. Find all the extrema in the interval [0, ] if y = x + sin x.
3. Find the absolute maximum and absolute minimum of f on the interval (-1,2].
4. Consider . Find all values, c, in the interval [0,1] such that the slope of the tangent line to the graph of f at c is parallel to the secant line through the points (0,f(0)) and (1,f(1)).
5. Find all open intervals on which is decreasing.
6. Find the relative extrema of , including the designation of maximum or minimum.
7. A differentiable function f has only one critical number: x = -3. Identify the relative extrema of f at (-3,f(-3)) if f'(-4) = ½ and f'(-2) = -1.
