Evaluate graphs of derivative functions

(a) Suppose the graph in Figure 4.1.78 is that of a function g(x). Sketch the graph of the derivative g; (b) On the other hand, suppose the graph above is that of the derivative of a function f. For the interval ..., tell where the function f is (i) increasing; (ii) decreasing. (iii) Tell whether f has any extrema, and if so

Finding the derivative of a function given graphically

For the function of f, given below in graph (a) Sketch (b) Where does change its sign (c) Where does have local minima and maxima Using the graph of write a brief description of complete sentences to describe the relationship between the following features of the function of: (a) the local maxima and minima o

Heart Disease and Cancer : Plotting Graphs, Trends and Making Predictions

You have been invited to present statistical information at a conference. To prepare, you must perform the following tasks: 1. The following data was retrieved from www.cdc.gov. It represents the number of deaths in the United States due to heart Disease and cancer in each of the years; 1985, 1990, 1995, and 2002. Year Di

Find Domain, Graph, Height, Minimum Surface Area of a Box

Consider an open-top box with a square base and a volume of 108 cubic inches. Let x be the length of a side of the base. a) Calculate the height h as a function of x. Is this function even, odd, or neither? b) What is the domain of the function above? (Note that there may be physical and/or mathematical restrictions.)

Uniform Convergence of a Sequence of Functions

Prove the following theorem. Let f1,f2,f3.... be continuous functions on a closed bounded interval [a,b] . Then fn--->f uniformly on [a,b] if and only if fn(x)-->f(x) for every xn-->x such that xn,x E[a,b] . Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems.

Functions, Roots, Convergence, Fixed Point Method

Consider the function f(x) = 2sinx + e^-x - 1 on the interval r E [?2,2]. If you plot the function, you will see that it has two roots on this interval (a) Write down a first order fixed point method for finding one of the two roots. (b) Will this fixed point method converge for both of the roots (Justify)? If it does not co

Proof of Uniform Continuity

Show that the function f(x) = √x is uniformly continuous on [0,∞). Note: This is from a beginning analysis class. We can only use the definition of uniform continuity. (In other words, cannot use compactness, etc to prove) ---

Use the Mean-Value Theorem- continuously differentiable function

(See attached file for full problem description) Let a sequence xn be defined inductively by . Suppose that as and . Show that . (Note that " " refers to "little oh") HINT: Use the Mean-Value Theorem and assume that F is a continuously differentiable function.

Real-World Applications of Graphs and Functions : Heart Disease and Cancer

Minimum spanning tree

Hi. Is the statement below TRUE or FALSE. Why? Question : I have a connected weighted undirected graph G with a minimum spanning tree T. If I increase the weight of one edge, the new minimum spanning tree T' of the new graph G' differs from T in at most one edge.

Business - monthly revenue achieved by selling x boxes of candy...

The monthly revenue achieved by selling x boxes of candy is figured to be x(5 - 0.05x) dollars. The wholesale cost of each box of candy is $1.50. a) How many boxes must be sold each month to achieve a profit of at least $60? b) Using a graph in utility, graph the revenue function. c) What is the maximum re

Constructing an Open Box : Writing Functions and Calculating and Minimizing Area

A open box with a square base is required to have a volume of 10 cubic feet. a) Express the amount A of material used to make such a box as a function of the length x of a side of the square base. b) How much material is required for a base 1 foot by 1 foot? c) How much material is required for a base 2 feet by 2 feet? d) Gr

How do I plot the data for each disease as points in a rectangular coordinate system? I must connect the data points. Using a curve how

Graphing and Solving Quadratic Inequalities (3 Problems)

State the solution set using interval notation and graph the solution set. Please check these for me and graph them. I do not know how to use a graphing tool. If you also have any advice on how & what tool I can use to graph, it would be helpful. Please do not handwrite the Graphs because I can not view scanned photos

Identifying the set that contains the given number

Define then; Let W = the set of whole numbers F = the set of (non-negative) Fractions I = the set of integers Q= the set of rational numbers R =the set of real numbers Question List all of the sets that have the following properties. (a) 5 is an element of the set(s)? (b) -1/2 is an e

Relations, Functions and Reversal of Variables : Real World Applications

In the real world, what might be a situation where it is preferable for the data for form a relation but not a function? All I found was Edgar Cobb who invented the relational module while working at IBM in the late 1960's. Am I on the right track? Help? When might a reversal of variables be useful in the real world?

Equilibrium Point: Price-Supply and Price-Demand Equations

At a price of $1.90 per bushel, the annual U.S. supply and demand for barley are 410 million bushels and 455 million bushels, respectively. When the price rises to $2.70 per bushel, the supply increases to 430 million bushels and the demand decreases to 415 million bushels. A. Assuming that the price-supply and the price-dem
