## Problem 1

Find the following limits:

(a) If  $\lim _{x\rightarrow 3}{\bigg (}{\frac {f(x)}{2x}}+1{\bigg )}=2,$ find  $\lim _{x\rightarrow 3}f(x).$ (b) Evaluate  $\lim _{x\rightarrow 2}{\frac {2-x}{x^{2}-4}}.$ (c) Find  $\lim _{x\rightarrow 0}{\frac {\tan(4x)}{\sin(6x)}}.$ ## Problem 2

Suppose the size of a population at time  $t$ is given by

$N(t)={\frac {1000t}{5+t}},~t\geq 0.$ (a) Determine the size of the population as  $t\rightarrow \infty .$ We call this the limiting population size.

(b) Show that at time  $t=5,$ the size of the population is half its limiting size.

## Problem 3

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

(a)  $f(x)={\frac {(3x-5)(-x^{-2}+4x)}{x^{\frac {4}{5}}}}$ (b)  $g(x)={\sqrt {x}}+{\frac {1}{\sqrt {x}}}+{\sqrt {\pi }}$ for  $x>0.$ (c)  $h(x)={\bigg (}{\frac {3x^{2}}{x+1}}{\bigg )}^{4}$ ## Problem 4

Consider the circle  $x^{2}+y^{2}=25.$ (a)  Find  ${\frac {dy}{dx}}.$ (b)  Find the equation of the tangent line at the point  $(4,-3).$ ## Problem 5

At time  $t,$ the position of a body moving along the  $s-$ axis is given by  $s=t^{3}-6t^{2}+9t$ (in meters and seconds).

(a)  Find the times when the velocity of the body is equal to  $0.$ (b)  Find the body's acceleration each time the velocity is  $0.$ (c)  Find the total distance traveled by the body from time  $t=0$ second to  $t=2$ seconds.
