    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Define A(x) to be the area bounded by the t-axis, the line y = 2t and a vertical line at t = x.
    (a) Find a formula for A(x).
    (b) Determine A'(x)

    The figure below shows the graph of the derivative of a continuous function f .
    (a) List the critical numbers of f .
    (b) What values of x result in a local maximum?
    (c) What values of x result in a local minimum?

    Use information from the derivative of each function to help you graph the function. Find all local maximums and minimums of each function.

    g(x)=2x^3-〖15x〗^2+6

    In 4 and 5, a function and values of x so that f '(x) = 0 are given. Use the Second Derivative Test to determine whether each point (x, f (x)) is a local maximum, a local minimum or neither.
    h(x)=x^4-8x^2-2; x=-2,0,2

    f(x)=x∙In(x); x=1/e

    Lest you have forgotten, the formulas you will need are as follows:
    For a right circular cylinder of radius "r" and height "h":
    The volume V = πr2h.
    The surface area S = circular ends plus the cylindrical wall = 2πr2 + 2πrh.

    You have been asked to design a one-liter (i.e., 1000 cm3) can shaped like a right circular cylinder (figure below). What dimensions will use the least material?

    So the question is: What should "r" be and what should "h" be such that the volume is 1 liter but the surface area is least?

    1. Define A(x) to be the area bounded by the t-axis, the line y = 2t and a vertical line at t = x.
    (a) Find a formula for A(x).
    (b) Determine (x)

    Solution:

    (a)

    (b)

    2. The figure below shows the graph of the derivative of a continuous function f .
    (a) List the critical numbers of f .
    (b) What values of x result in a local maximum?
    (c) What values of x result in a local minimum?

    Solution:

    (a)
    Critical numbers are x = 2, 7

    (b)
    Function has local maximum at x = 7.

    (c)
    Function has local minimum at x = 2.

    3. Use information from the derivative of each function to help you graph the function. Find all local maximums and minimums of each function.

    Solution:

    To find critical points, put g'(x) = 0

    Critical points are x = 0, 5

    Since g"(0) < 0 ...
