Noting that and ( + 3 x) x 8 = + 3 x) by Equation (2.3.) x 8 x 8 = by Equations (2.3.7) and (2.3.0) =3 x 8 6x2 + x 3 ) = 2 + 6x 2 + x 3 x 8 x 8 x 8 by Equation (2.3.) = 2 6 x 2 + x 3 x 8 x 8 x 8 by Equation (2.3.3) =2 6(8 2 ) by Equations (2.3.7) and (2.3.0) =30 (this could also have been accomplished using the Direct Substitution Property ) we find that ( + 3 x)(2 6x 2 + x 3 ) x 8 = ( + 3 x) (2 x 8 x 8 6x2 + x 3 ) =330 = 390. by Equation (2.3.4) Solution (2.3.7). Noting that ( + 3x) = + 3x by Equation (2.3.) = + 3 x by Equation (2.3.3) = + 3() by Equations (2.3.7) and (2.3.8) =4

2 and 4x2 + 3x 4 ) = + 4x 2 + 3x 4 by Equation (2.3.) = x x 4 by Equation (2.3.3) = + 4( 2 ) + 3( 4 ) by Equations (2.3.7) and (2.3.0) =8 (both of these could also have been accomplished using the Direct Substitution Property ) we find that + 3x + 4x 2 + 3x 4 ( + 3x) = ( + 4x 2 + 3x 4 ) = 4 8 = 2. Solution (2.3.5). t 3 Solution (2.3.9). t 2 9 2t 2 + 7t + 3 = t 3 x + 2 x = Solution (2.3.23). x x 7 x 7 Solution (2.3.25). = x x x x = x 4 (t 3)(t + 3) (t + 3)(2t + ) = t 3 x + 2 (x + 2)(x 2 2x + 4) = x x 7 = x 7 x 7 (x 7)( x ) = x 7 ( x+4 ) 4x 4 + x = x 4 Solution (2.3.37). First note that cos by Equation (2.3.5) (t 3) (2t + ) = 6 5 = 6 5. (x 2 2x + 4) = 2. x (x + 2) 9 = x x 7 (x 7)( x ) ( ) x + 4 4x ( ) 2. x x = = 4 + x x = 6. 4x = 6. Since x 4 0, by multiplying each part of the above inequality with x 4, we obtain ( ) 2 x 4 x 4 cos x 4. x Since x 0 x 4 = 0 and x 0 x 4 = 0, we conclude that ( ) 2 x 0 x4 cos = 0 x by the Squeeze Theorem. 2

(iv) (v) g(x) =. g(x) = 2 x 2 x 2 x2 = 2 (2) 2 = 2. g(x) = x 3 = 2 3 =. x 2+ x 2+ (vi) Since the left and right its are not equal, we conclude that g(x) x 2 does not exist. (b) See Fig.().

(c) The it x a f(x) exists for all values π a π except for π/2 and π/2. Solution (2.3.55). We have that Therefore f(x) 8 = = (f(x) 8) x x (x ) Solution (2.3.6). Suppose that = = 0 0 = 0. f(x) 8 x f(x) = 8 + (f(x) 8) = = 8. 3x 2 + ax + a + 3 x 2 = C + x 2 (x ) f(x) 8 x 4

5 for some constant C. Then (3x2 + ax + a + 3) = Moreover, since = = (3x 2 + ax + a + 3) x2 + x 2 x 2 + x 2 (x 2 + x 2) 3x2 + ax + a + 3 (x2 + x 2) = 0 C = 0. x 2 + x 2 3x 2 + ax + a + 3 x 2 + x 2 (3x2 + ax + a + 3) = 3( 2) 2 + a( 2) + a + 3 = 2 2a + a + 3 = 5 a, we must have that 5 a = 0, and therefore a = 5. Hence 3x 2 + ax + a + 3 3x 2 + 5x + 8 3(x + 2)(x + 3) x 2 = + x 2 x 2 = + x 2 (x + 2)(x ) 3(x + 3) 3( 2 + 3) = = (x ) ( 2 ) = 3 3 =. Solution (2.4.3). Choose δ min{4.6 2, } = min{.44,.76} =.44. Solution (2.4.5). Choose δ min{arctan(.2) π/2, π/2 arctan(0.8)} = Solution (2.4.9). Let ϵ > 0 and choose δ = 5ϵ. Then if x 3 < δ, we have that x = 5 x 3 < 5 δ = (5ϵ) = ϵ. 5 Solution (2.4.2). Let ϵ > 0 and choose δ = ϵ. Then if x 2 < δ, we have that x 2 + x 6 5 x 2 = (x + 3)(x 2) 5 x 2 = (x + 3) 5 = x 2 < δ = ϵ. Solution (2.4.29). Let ϵ > 0 and choose δ = ϵ. Then if x 2 < δ, we have that x 2 4x + 5 = x 2 4x + 4 = (x 2) 2 = x 2 2 < δ 2 = ϵ. Solution (2.4.39). Let ϵ =. Then for any δ > 0, let N be an integer with N > 2/δ. Set x = 2/N. Then x is irrational, x < δ, and f(x) f(0) = 0 =. Thus the it does not exist. Solution (2.4.43). Let > 0 and choose δ = e. Then since ln(x) is strictly increasing, 0 < x < δ implies that ln(x) < ln(δ) = ln(e ) =. Thus x 0+ ln(x) =. 5

6 Figure 3: Graph of f(x) for problem Solution (2.5.9). Since f and g are continuous, 2f(x) g(x) = 2f(x) + g(x) = 2 f(x) g(x) x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 2f(3) g(3) = 2 5 g(3) = 0 g(3) Thus 0 g(3) = 4, from which it follows that g(3) = 6. Solution (2.5.). To show that f(x) is continuous at x =, we must show that x f(x) = f( ). The properties of its tell us that 4 4 (x + x 2x3 ) 4 = (x + x 2x3 ) = x + x x 2x3 4 = x + 2 x x x3 = ( ) + 2( ) 3 4 = f( ). Thus f(x) is continuous at x =. Solution (2.5.5). The function f(x) is discontinuous at x = 2, since f(2) = ln(0) is not defined. For a graph of the function, see Fig.(3). Solution (2.5.9). The function f(x) is discontinuous at x = 0 because f(x) =, x 0 but f(0) = 0. For a graph of the function, see Fig.(4). Solution (2.5.27). The domain of the function G(t) is every value of t for which t 4 > 0. Equivalently, this is when t 4 > or more simply t >. The polynomial t 4, and the logarithm ln(x) are continuous by Theorem Since G is the composition of these two functions, it is continuous everywhere in its domain by Theorem

8 Figure 6: Graph of y for problem Solution (2.5.29). There is a discontinuity at x = 0. function, see Fig.(5). For a graph of the Solution (2.5.33). Since the exponential function e x and the polynomial x 2 x are continuous for all values of x, their composition e x2 x is continuous. It follows that x = e ex2 ()2 () = e 0 =. Solution (2.5.39). The function f(x) is discontinuous at 0 and. It is continuous from the right at 0 and continuous from the left at. For a graph of the function, see Fig.(6). Solution (2.5.4). If f(x) is to be continuous for all x, then in particular, we will require that the left and right its of f(x) at x = 2 are both equal to f(2) = (2) 3 c(2) = 8 2c. Since and f(x) = x 2 x 2 cx2 + 2x = c(2) 2 + 2(2) = 4c + 4, f(x) = x 2+ x 2+ x3 cx = (2) 3 c(2) = 8 2c, this tell us that 8 2c = 4c + 4. This means that 4 = 6c, and therefore c = 2/3. For this value of c, f(x) is continuous, since it is continuous at 2, and continuous everywhere else because it is defined to be polynomials elsewhere. Solution (2.5.45). To solve this problem, we apply the intermediate value theorem. The function f(x) is the sum of the continuous functions x 2 and 0 sin(x), and is therefore continuous. Moreover f(0) = 0, f(00π) = 0000π 2, and 0 < 000 < 0000π 2. Thus by the intermediate value theorem, there is a value of c with 0 < c < 00π such that f(c) =

9 Solution (2.5.49). Define f(x) = cos(x) x. Since f(x) is the difference of the continuous functions cos(x) and x, it is continuous. Moreover f(π/6) = cos(π/6) π/6 = 3 2 π/6 > 0 and f(π/4) = cos(π/4) π/4 = 2 2 π/2 < 0. Thus by the intermediate value theorem, there is a c with π/6 < c < π/4 such that f(c) = 0. In particular, this shows that the equation cos(x) = x has a root in the interval (0, ). Solution (2.5.59). If is not continuous at any value of x. In fact, x a f(x) does not exist for any a. Solution (2.5.6). The answer is yes. To see this, define f(x) = x 3 + x. Then f is a polynomial, and is therefore continuous. Moreover f(0) = and f( 3) = ( 3) 3 + ( 3) = = 23. Thus by the intermediate value theorem, there is a c with 3 < c < 0 such that f(c) = 0. In particular, this means that c 3 + c = 0, or rather c 3 + = c. Thus c is exactly more than its cube. Solution (2.5.63). For values of x 0, the function /x is continuous. Moreover sin(x) is continuous for all values of x, so the composition sin(/x) must be continuous for all values of x 0. Lastly x 4 is continuous for all values of x, so the product x 4 sin(/x) must be continuous for all values of x 0. Thus to prove that f(x) is continuous for all x, it remains only to show that it is continuous at 0. We note that sin(/x) and x 4 0, so therefore Since x 4 x 4 sin(/x) x 4. x 0 x4 = x 4 = 0, x 0 the Squeeze theorem tells us that x 0 x 4 sin(/x) = 0. Moreover, f(0) = 0 by definition. Thus f(x) is continuous at x = 0. 9
