## Problem 1

Evaluate the following limits.

(a) Find  $\lim _{x\rightarrow 2}{\frac {{\sqrt {x^{2}+12}}-4}{x-2}}$ (b) Find  $\lim _{x\rightarrow 0}{\frac {\sin(3x)}{\sin(7x)}}$ (c) Evaluate  $\lim _{x\rightarrow 0}x^{2}\cos {\bigg (}{\frac {1}{x}}{\bigg )}$ ## Problem 2

Use the definition of the derivative to find   ${\frac {dy}{dx}}$ for the function  $y={\frac {1+x}{3x}}.$ ## Problem 3

Find the derivatives of the following functions. Do not simplify.

(a)   $f(x)=x^{3}(x^{\frac {4}{3}}-1)$ (b)   $f(x)={\frac {x^{3}+x^{-3}}{1+6x}}$ where  $x>0$ (c)   $f(x)={\sqrt {3x^{2}+5x-7}}$ where  $x>0$ ## Problem 4

Assume  $N(t)$ denotes the size of a population at time  $t$ and that  $N(t)$ satisfies the equation:

${\frac {dN}{dt}}=3N{\bigg (}1-{\frac {N}{20}}{\bigg )}.$ Let  $f(N)=3N{\bigg (}1-{\frac {N}{20}}{\bigg )},~N\geq 0.$ Graph  $f(N)$ as a function of  $N$ and identify all equilibria. That is, all points where  ${\frac {dN}{dt}}=0.$ ## Problem 5

A kite 30 (meters) above the ground moves horizontally at a speed of 6 (m/s). At what rate is the length of the string increasing when 50 (meters) of the string has been let out?
