For both problems, the ladder length L2 = x2 + y2 implicit differentiation gives: =0= so = 3, and = , and = = -2 gives = 1 gives = = = = m/sec m/sec

## For Fake Question 9: L = 5, x = 4, y = For Real Question 9: L = 4, x = 3, y =

Fake Question 10
The function y = x3 9x2 + 24x + 2 has a single local maximum. At what point does that local maximum occur? a) 4 b) 2 c) 4 d) 2 y' = 3x2 18x + 24 = 0 => x2 6x + 8 = 0 gives (x 4)(x 2) = 0 so x = 2 or 4 for local min/max. y'' = 6x 18 and y''(4) = 6(4) 18= 6 and y''(2) = 6(2) 18= -6 is negative so local maximum at x=2.

At what point does that local minimum occur? a) -2 b) 3 c) 3 d) 2 y' = 6x2 + 6x 36 = 0 => x2 + x 6 = 0 gives (x + 3)(x 2) = 0 so x = 2 or -3 for local min/max. y'' = 12x + 6 and y''(-3) = 12(-3)+6= -30 and y''(2) = 12(2)+6= 30 is positive so local minimum at x=2.

Fake Question 11
A soup can is to be produced to hold exactly 162 cubic centimeters of soup. How tall should the can be to minimize the surface area of the can? a) cm b) cm c) cm d) cm

Real Question 11
A soup can is to be produced to hold exactly 128 cubic centimeters of soup. How tall should the can be to minimize the surface area of the can? a) 10 cm b) 4 cm c) 8 cm d) 6 cm The geometry and process to solve both problems are the same, with just different can volumes. To solve, write the can's surface area in terms of h, then differentiate, set to 0, and solve for h. Volume of cylinder: V = and thus

Can Surface Area (SA) = Area of top + Area of bottom + Area of side SA = + SA = SA = + +

Now that we have SA in term of just h we can differentiate it with respect to h and set it to zero. = + =0 = = h= h= h=

cm

## For Real Problem 11: V = 128 cm so h =

= 8 cm

[You can check this is a minima (not maxima) problem be plotting SA (set V = 1 for easier math) against h to see the curve has just one local minimum.]

Fake Question 12
It is perhaps a bit funny to observe that sin 29634 0.6000001629810547737228990440413 cos 29634 -0.799999877764182979445839271152 In light of this, which value listed below do you believe to be the best approximation to sin 29634.001? Warning: The approximation below is better than what Calculus One might give you, so choose the value closest to your best guess. a) 0.599199863236404284272396125743 c) 0.600800162858818956718998622509 b) 0.599920162993278355424954856486 d) 0.600080162968831192024677762636

Euler's Method from problem gives, with h = 0.001: sin 29634.001 = sin 29634 + h*cos 29634 = 0.6000001629810547737228990440413 (0.001)(0.799999877764182979445839271152) = 0.6000001629810547737228990440413 0.000799999877764182979445839271152 = 0.5992001631032906

Real Question 12
Let f(x) = , the tenth root function. Note that since f(1024) = 2. Calculate f '(1024) and use that value to approximate the tenth root of f(1040), a significant number in the United States on April 15. a) 2 + 1/322 b) 2 + 1/5120 c) 2 + 1/320 d) 2 + 4/1289 e) 2 + 821/264562

f '(x) = x-9/10/10 and h = 1040 1024 = 16 so Euler's Method gives: f(1040) = f(1024) + h*f '(1024) = 2 + 16(1/10*10249/10)= 2 + 24/10*29 = 2 + 1/10*25 = 2 + 1/320

The length of the interval [-1,2] is 2 (-1) = 3 units, and each subinterval length is dx = 3/6 = 1/2. Right hand rule, f(x) starts at right side of rectangles, at x = (-1+1/2), (-1+2/2)....(-1+5/2), (-1+6/2).

Fake Question 15
Evaluate the definite integral Hint: You can make this problem much easier if you think about the graph of y = x8sin x a) b) c) d) e)

Since y = x8sin x is the multiplication of an even function x8 by an odd function sin x its integral over a symmetric region [-1,1] is zero, so the original integral is just for x4. Therefore: = + =0+ = = =

Real Question 17
Evaluate the definite integral a) -cos(1) sin(1) b) cos(1) sin(1) . c) cos(1) + sin(1) d) sin(1) cos(1) v = -cos(x)

Use integration by parts: let u = x, dv = sin(x) dx, then du = dx, = -xcos(x) + = -xcos(x) +

= -cos(1) + sin(1)

Fake Question 18
Consider the region above the graph of y = x4 and below the graph of y = 5x + 6. What is the area of this region? Vertical rectangle slices have height: (5x + 6) (x4) and width dx, and curves meet when x4 = 5x + 6 gives x4 5x 6 = 0 so x = -1 and x = 2 means x integrated from [-1,2], therefore integrate: = = = =

Real Question 18
Consider the region above the graph of y = x2 and below the graph of y = x + 2. What is the area of this region? a) b) c) 3 d)

Vertical rectangle slices have height: (x + 2) (x2) and width dx, and curves meet when x2 = x + 2 gives x2 x 2 = 0 and (x 2)( x + 1) = 0 means x integrated from [-1,2], therefore integrate: = = = =

Fake Question 19

Real Question 19
Let A be the region in the plane consisting of those points (x,y) such that 0 y 1 x2. Rotate A around the x-axis in space. What is the volume of the resulting solid? a) b) c) d)

For each problem, the distance from the x-axis to each curve is the radius of circular cross-sectional area with r = y which form slices of cylinders with height dx, so that the solid's volume is the sum of infinitesimally thin cylinders with volume V = = , which span from y(-x) = 0 to y(x) =0. For Fake Question 19: y = cos(x) V= = = = =

## For Real Question 19: y = 1 x2 V= = = = =

Fake Question 20
A paper cone is to be formed by starting with a disk of radius 12 cm, cutting out a circular sector, and gluing the new edges together. What is the maximum volume of such a cone? a) cm3 b) cm3 c) cm3 d) 6 cm3 e) cm3

Real Question 20
A paper cone is to be formed by starting with a disk of radius 9 cm, cutting out a circular sector, and gluing the new edges together. The size of the circular sector is chosen to maximize the volume of the resulting cone. How tall is the cone? a) cm b) cm c) cm d) cm

[Circular Sector: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circular_sector] The geometry of both problems is the same, so the process of solving both is similar. Let the disk radius be R, and the radius of the base of the resulting cone be r, and its height h. Thus R2 = h2 + r2, and h = and r = with volume of cone V = To find the maximum cone volume, write V in terms of just r or h and differentiate accordingly, however, the math comes out easier by replacing r in terms of h. volume of cone: V = V= = and writing r in term of h gives: = =0 = 0 and so h = For Fake Question 20: h = = = cm and r2 = = cm and r2 = = = = = 96 (so r = cm3 = 54 (so r = cm3 cm) cm)

so then the maximum volume is: VMax = For Real Question 20: h = = =

## so then the maximum volume is: VMax =

However, in order to make the cone, we need to know the value of that maximizes the cone's volume. From geometry, the arc length (perimeter) of the arcsection subtended by is: s = R When rolled into a cone the arc length s becomes the circumference of the cone's circular base, so and thus s = R = = /R radians /R = /R = /12 = /9 = and using radians = 180 degrees deg = 293.94 deg deg = 293.94 deg

## For Fake Question 20: = For Real Question 20: =

From above it seems the maximum for any R is /3 radians or 294 degrees. We worked backwards to find it. How do we directly prove this is true (or false) with calculus? First, write V in terms of . From above: and then: and so: and thus: s = R = h= V= V= = gives r = R/ = =

Now that we have V in term of just we can differentiate it with respect to and set it to zero. = 0= = = = = = Max = =0
