Slope predictor, derivative, maximization

Given f( x) = 2/x-1 , use the four step process to find a slope predictor function m(x). Then write an equation for the line tangent to the curve at the point x = 0.

Find f'(x) given f (x) = 5x^3- 4x^2+ 3x- 2 / X^2

A farmer has 480 meters of fencing. He wishes to enclose a rectangular plot of land and to divide the plot into three equal rectangles with two parallel lengths of fence down the middle. What
dimensions will maximize the enclosed area? Be sure to verify that you have found the maximum enclosed area.

Solution Summary

This shows how to find a slope predictor function, a derivative, and maximum area.
