## 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  $\lim _{x\rightarrow ({\frac {\pi }{2}})^{-}}\tan(x)$ ## Problem 2

The function  $f(x)=3x^{7}-8x+2$ is a polynomial and therefore continuous everywhere.

(a) State the Intermediate Value Theorem.

(b) Use the Intermediate Value Theorem to show that  $f(x)$ has a zero in the interval  $[0,1].$ ## Problem 3

Use the definition of the derivative to find   ${\frac {dy}{dx}}$ for the function  $y={\frac {1+x}{3x}}.$ ## Problem 4

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

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

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

(a)   $f(x)=\tan ^{3}(7x^{2}+5)$ (b)   $g(x)=\sin(\cos(e^{x}))$ (c)   $h(x)={\frac {(5x^{2}+7x)^{3}}{\ln(x^{2}+1)}}$
