Solutions

  1. = 5(x3 + x – 1)4 · (3x2 + )
  2. 4y3 – 6x = –sin(y)
  3. 3y2 = 12x3 – 20x + 3
  4. · + · = 30x2 · – 7 ·
  5. · + ex · = 2x · y2 + 2y · · x2
  6. 10x · + 2 · = 2w ·
  7. = x · + y · ·
  8. 2A · + 2B · = 2C ·
  9. = 4 π r2 ·
  10. = 8 π r ·
  11. = 2 π ·
  12. = · · h + · b
  13. = –
  14. = –
  15. = 24
  16. = 28
  17. Because = 172 , A is increasing at the rate of 172 square feet per minute when I = 20.
  18. = –, so R is decreasing at the rate of   per hour at this instant.
  19. = –25, so the area is decreasing at the rate of 25 square feet per minute.
  20. = –320 π , so the area shrinks by 320 πsquare inches per minute.
  21. = , so the radius grows at ≈ 0.796 feet per hour.
  22. V = s3, so = 3s2 , thus = 4 when = 1,200 and s = 10. Each side is growing at the rate of 4 inches per minute.
  23. = 7, so the base increases at the rate of 7 inches per hour.
  24. If the height is y and the base is x, then x2 + y2 = 102 and 2x + 2y = 0. After 6 seconds, y = 6 and x2 + 62 = 100, so x = 8. Because = 1,2(8) + 2(6)(1) = 0, so = – .The end of the board is moving at the rate of of a foot each hour along the ground.
  25. If the base is x and the hypotenuse (length of the string) is 5, then x2 + 1002 = s2 . Using this, when s = 260, must be 240. Because = 13, we can calculate that = 12. Thus, the string must be let out at 12 feet per second.
