MATH 105 FINAL EXAM April 13, 2010

Name:

Your grade is based on correctness, completeness, and clarity on each exercise. You may use a calculator, but no notes, books, or other students. Good luck!

1.) (15 pts.) Compute the following derivatives, using any valid techniques you like. (Be sure to show enough steps so that it is clear which techniques you are using.)

a.) (5 pts.) *f*(*x*) =
*√
*

*π *+ *ex *tan *x
*

b.) (5 pts.) *p*(*t*) =
1

*t
*+

1

1 + *t*2

c.) (5 pts.) *y *= *x*cos *x
*

2.) (15 pts.) Consider the integral

∫ 2
*−*1

(*−x *+ 1) *dx*.

a.) (5 pts.) Interpret the integral as “area under a curve”. Draw the graph with area shaded in, and use geometry to compute the signed area.

b.) (5 pts.) Evaluate the integral using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

c.) (5 pts.) Are your answers the same or different? Explain why your answers should, or should not, be the same.

3.) (15 pts.) Consider the integral

∫ 2 1

1

*x*2
*dx*.

a.) (5 pts.) Approximate the area under the curve using the a trapezoid sum with two equal subintervals. In your approximation, use at least two digits after the decimal point.

b.) (5 pts.) Evaluate the integral using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

c.) (5 pts.) Are your answers the same or different? Explain why your answers should, or should not, be the same.
