Flashcards in Practice Midterm Exam Deck (20):
An object is dropped from the top of a tall building. At 2 seconds, it is 64 feet from the top of the building. At 4 seconds, it is 256 feet from the top of the building. What is the average rate the object was traveling in the interval between 2 and 4 seconds?
96 ft / s
For which values of k will the line y = x + k meet the parabola of the equation y = −x ^2 + 4x − 8 in two distinct points?
k < −23/4
What is the limit of the function in the graph at x = 4?
Determine, if it exists, limx→1 x^2−2x+1/√x+3 −2
What is the slope of the tangent line of the function f (x) = 4x ^2 − 2x + 1 at x = 3?
Consider the function y = x^ 2 − 2x + 1. What is the slope of the tangent line at x = 2?
The instantaneous rate of change of a ball (in ft/sec) is given by f′(x)=1/√x. When was the ball traveling at a rate of 1/4 ft/sec?
What is f ' (x) if f (x) = x^64?
Compute the derivative of the function
f(x)=x−√x / (x^3−x+3).

What is the value of sin (π / 4)?
What is the derivative of the function
f(x) = e^x/2−tanx/x?
Evaluate the following as true or false.
If dy / dx is undefined for a given value of x, then the line tangent to the curve y = f (x) at that value does not exist.
Find an equation of the tangent line to the curve x^2/a^2−y^2/b^2=1, where a and b are constants, at the point (x0,y0).
Below is the graph of a function f (x). Which graph could be the graph of its inverse f −1 (x)?
The graph of f −1 (x) looks like the reflection of the graph of f (x) across the line y = x. Another way to think of this is that whatever is true of the y-coordinates in the graph of f (x) must be true of the x-coordinates in the graph of f −1 (x). Because the graph of f (x) has no negative y-coordinates, the graph of f −1 (x) must not have any negative x-coordinates. Also in the original f (x) graph the y-coordinates decrease as the x-coordinates increase.
What is the value of d/dx[f−1(x)] when x=0, given that f(x)=x1−x, and f−1(0)=0?
Suppose I want to find an inverse to the function |cos x|. I intend to restrict the domain of the function to an interval whose left endpoint is x = 0. On which of the following intervals is |cos x| one-to one?
[0, π / 2]
