Question 1.
Find the equation of tangents and normals to the given curves x = cost, y = sin t at t = \(\frac{π}{4}\).
Answer:
Given; x = cost, y = sin t
Equation of tangent at t = \(\frac{π}{4}\) is;
Equation of normal at t = \(\frac{π}{4}\) is;
⇒ \(\sqrt{2}\)y + \(\sqrt{2}\)x = 0 ⇒ y + x = 0.
Question 2.
A ladder Sm long is leaning against a wall. The bottom of the ladder is pulled along the ground, away from the wall, at the rate of 2cm/s. How fast is its height on decreasing when the foot of the ladder is 4m away from the wall?
Answer:
From the figure we have;
x^{2} + y^{2} = 25 ____(1)
Differentiating w.r.t t;
From (1) when x = 4 ⇒ 16 + y^{2} = 25 ⇒ y = 3
Given; \(\frac{d x}{d t}\) = 2cm/s = 0.02 m/s
(2) ⇒ 4(0.02) + 3 \(\frac{d x}{d t}\) = 0
Question 3.
Find the points on the curve y = x^{3}, the tangents at which are inclined at an angle of 60° to xaxis?
Answer:
\(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 3x^{2}
Slope of the tangent = tan60°
i.e. 3x^{2} = \(\sqrt{3}\)
Question 4.
Find the equation of the tangent to the parabola y^{2} = 4x + 5 which is parallel to y = 2x + 7.
Answer:
y^{2} = 4x + 5 _____(1)
2y \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 4
\(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = \(\frac{4}{2y}\) = \(\frac{2}{y}\)
Given tangent is parallel to y = 2x + 7
ie. Slope of the tangent is 2 ⇒ \(\frac{2}{y}\) = 2 ⇒ y = 1
∴ from (1) ⇒ 1 = 4x+ 5 ⇒ 4x = 4 ⇒ x = 1
So the point of contact is (1, 1).
∴ Equation of tangent is
y 1 = 2(x + 1) ⇒ y = 2x + 3.
Question 5.
Find the intervals in which the function f given f(x) = 2x^{2} – 3x is
 Strictly increasing.
 Strictly decreasing.
Answer:
Given; f(x) = 2x^{2} – 3x ⇒ f'(x) = 4x – 3
For turning points; f'(x) = 0
⇒ 4x – 3 = 0 ⇒ x = \(\frac{3}{4}\)
The intervals are \(\left(\infty, \frac{3}{4}\right),\left(\frac{3}{4}, \infty\right)\)
f'(0) = – 3 < 0
∴ Strictly decreasing in \(\left(\infty, \frac{3}{4}\right)\)
f'(1) = 1 > 0
∴ Strictly increasing in \(\left(\frac{3}{4}, \infty\right)\).
Question 6.
Find the intervals in which the function f(x) = (x + 1)^{3} (x – 3)^{3} strictly increasing or decreasing.
Answer:
Given; f(x) = (x + 1)^{3} (x – 3)^{3}
⇒ f'(x) = (x + 1)^{3} 3(x – 3)^{2} + (x – 3)^{3}3(x + 1)^{2}
= 3(x + 1)^{2}(x – 3)^{2}(x + 1 + x – 3)
= 3(x + 1)^{2}(x – 3)^{2}(2x – 2)
= 6(x +1)^{2} (x – 3)^{2} (x 1)
⇒ 6(x +1)^{2} (x – 3)^{2} (x – 1) = 0
⇒ x = 1, 1, 3
The intervals are
(∞, 1), (1, 1), (1, 3), (3, ∞)
f'(2) = (2 – 1) < 0
∴ Strictly decreasing in (∞, 1)
f'(0) = (0 – 1) < 0
∴ Strictly decreasing in (1, 1)
f'(2) = (2 – 1) > 0
∴ Strictly increasing in (1, 3)
f'(4) = (4 – 1) > 0
∴ Strictly increasing in (3, ∞).
Question 7.
Find the intervals in which the function f(x) = x + \(\frac{1}{x}\) strictly increasing or decreasing.
Answer:
⇒ x = ±1
The intervals are (∞, 1), (1, 1), (1, ∞)
f'(2) > 0
∴ Strictly increasing in (∞, 1)
f'(0) < 0
∴ Strictly decreasing in (1, 1)
f'(2) > 0
∴ Strictly increasing in (1, ∞).
Question 8.
Determine whether the f(x) = x^{2} function is strictly monotonic on the indicated interval.
 (1, 1)
 (1, 0)
 (0, 1)
Answer:
f(x) = x^{2}
⇒ f'(x) = 2x
⇒ f'(x) = 0 ⇒ 2x = 0 ⇒ x = 0
This turning point divides the domain into the intervals (∞, 0); (0, ∞).
 Interval (1, 1) f'(x) < 0 and f'(x) > 0. So f(x) is not monotonic.
 Interval (1, 0), f'(x) < 0. ∴ f(x) is strictly monotonic.
 Interval (0, 1) f'(x) > 0 and f(x) is strictly monotonic.
Question 9.
Determine whether the f(x) = x^{3} – x function is strictly monotonic on the indicated interval.
 (1, 0)
 (1, 1/2)
 (1, 1)
Answer:
(x) = x^{3} x ⇒ f'(x) = 3x^{2} – 1
⇒ f'(x) = 0 ⇒ 3x^{2} – 1 = 0 ⇒ x = ±\(\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\)
This turning point divides the domain into the intervals (∞, \(\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\)); (\(\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\), \(\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\)); (\(\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\), ∞).
 Interval (1, 0), f'(x) changes sign. So not monotonic.
 Interval (1, 1/2), f'(x) > 0 strictly monotonic.
 lnterval(1, 1) not monotonic
Question 10.
Find the approximate change in the volume V of a cube of side x meters caused by increasing the side by 1%.
Answer:
We have; V = x^{3} and ∆x = 1% of x= 0.01x
dV = \(\frac{d V}{d x}\) ∆x = 3x^{2}∆x
= 3x^{2} × 0.01x = 0.03x^{3} = 0.03V
⇒ \(\frac{d V}{V}\) = 0.03
Therefore 3% is the approximate increase in volume.
Question 11.
If the radius of a sphere is measured as 7m with an error of 0.02m then find the approximate error in calculating its volume.
Answer:
Let r be the radius of the sphere and ∆r be the error in measuring the radius then r =7m and ∆r = 0.02 m
We have; V = \(\frac{4}{3}\) πr^{3}
dV = \(\frac{d V}{dr}\) ∆r = \(\frac{4}{3}\) π3r^{2} × ∆r
= 4π(7)^{2} × 0.02 = 3.92 π m^{3}.
Question 12.

Question 13.
Find the equation of tangents and normals to the given curves y= x^{4} – 6x^{3} + 13x^{2} – 10x + 5 at (0, 5)
Answer:
Given; y = x^{4} – 6x^{3} + 13x^{2} – 10x + 5 at (0, 5)
⇒ \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 4x^{3} – 18x^{2} + 26x – 10
Slope = \(\left(\frac{d y}{d x}\right)_{x=0}\) = 10
Equation of tangent at (0, 5) is;
y – 5 =(10)(x – 0)
⇒ y – 5 = 10x ⇒ 10x + y – 5 = 0
Equation of normal at (0, 5) is;
y – 5 = \(\frac{1}{10}\)(x – 0)
⇒ 10y – 50 = x ⇒ x – 10y + 50 = 0.
Question 14.
Find the equation of tangents and normals to the given curves y = x^{3} at (1, 1)
Answer:
Given; y = x^{3}
⇒ \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 3x^{2}
Slope = \(\left(\frac{d y}{d x}\right)_{x=1}\) = 3
Equation of tangent at (1, 1) is; y 1 = (3)(x – 1)
⇒ y – 1 = 3x – 3 ⇒ 3x – y – 2 = 0
Equation of normal at (1, 1) is;
y – 1 = \(\frac{1}{3}\)(x – 1)
⇒ 3y – 3 = x + 1 ⇒ x+ 3y – 4 = 0.
Question 15.
The volume of a cube is increasing at the rate of 8cm^{3}/s. How fast is the surface area increasing when the length of an edge is 12cm.
Answer:
Let V be the volume of the cube of side x.
We have volume = V = x^{3}
Rate of change of volume with respect to time ‘t’ is;
ie; differentiating w.r.t t; \(\frac{d V}{d t}\) = 3x^{2}\(\frac{d x}{d t}\)
Given; \(\frac{d V}{d t}\) = 8 and x = 12 ⇒ 8 = 3(12)^{2}\(\frac{d x}{d t}\)
Now let Surface area = S = 6x^{2}
Differentiating w.r.t t;
Question 16.
Find the intervals in which the function f(x) = 2x^{3} – 9x^{2} – 12x + 1 strictly increasing or decreasing.
Answer:
Given; f(x) = 2x^{3} – 9x^{2} – 12x + 1
⇒ f'(x) = 6x^{2} – 18x – 12
= – 6(x^{2} + 3x + 2)
= – 6(x + 2)(x +1)
⇒ f'(x) = 0 ⇒ 6(x + 2)(x +1) = 0
⇒ x = 2, 1
The intervals are (∞, 2),( 2, 1),(1, ∞)
f'(3) = (3 + 2)(3 + 1) < 0
∴ Strictly decreasing in (∞, 2)
f'(1.5) = (1.5 + 2)(1.5 + 1) > 0
∴ Strictly increasing in ( 2, 1)
f'(0) = (0 + 2)(0 + 1) < 0
Strictly decreasing 1n(1, ∞).

Find the local maxima and minima of the following functions. Also find the local maximum and minimum values. (each question carry 3 score)
 f(x) = sin x + cosx, 0 < x < \(\frac{\pi}{2}\)
 f(x) = x^{3} – 3x
 f(x) = x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 9x + 15
 g(x) = \(\frac{x}{2}\) + \(\frac{2}{x}\), x > 0
 g(x) = \(\frac{1}{x^{2}+2}\)
Answer:
1. Given; f(x) = sinx + cosx
⇒ f'(x) = cosx – sinx
For turning point f'(x) = 0
⇒ cosx – sinx = 0
⇒ cosx = sinx
⇒ x = \(\frac{\pi}{4}\)
f”(x) = sin x – cosx
⇒ f (\(\frac{\pi}{4}\)) = sin\(\frac{\pi}{4}\) – cos\(\frac{\pi}{4}\) < 0
Hence f(x) has a local maximum at x = \(\frac{\pi}{4}\) and local maximum value is
2. Given; f(x) = x^{3} – 3x
⇒ f'(x) = 3x^{2} – 3
For turning point f'(x) = 0
⇒ 3x^{2} – 3 = 0
⇒ x = ±1
f”(x) = 6x
When x = 1
⇒ f”(1) = 6 < 0
Hence f(x) has a local maximum at x = 1 and local maximum value is
f(1) = (1)^{3} – 3(1) = 1 + 3 = 2
When x = 1
⇒ f”(1) = 6 > 0
Hence f(x) has a local minimum at x = 1 and local minimum value is
f(1) = (1)^{3} – 3(1) = 1 – 3 = 2.
3. Given; f(x) = x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 9x + 15
⇒ f'(x) = 3x^{2} – 12x + 9
For turning point f'(x) = 0
⇒ 3x^{2} – 12x + 9 = 0 ⇒ 3(x^{2} – 4x + 3) = 0
⇒ 3(x – 1)(x – 3) = 0 ⇒ x = 1, 3
f”(x) = 6x – 12
When x = 1
⇒ f”( 1) = 6 – 12 < 0
Hence f(x) has a local maximum at x = 1 and local maximum value is
f(1) = (1)^{3} – 6(1)^{2} + 9(1) + 15 = 19
When x = 3
⇒ f”(3) = 6(3) – 12 > 0
Hence f(x) has a local minimum at x = 3 and local minimum value is
f(3) = (3)^{3} – 6(3)^{2} + 9(3) + 15 = 15.
4. Given; g(x) = \(\frac{x}{2}\) + \(\frac{2}{x}\)
⇒ g'(x) = \(\frac{1}{2}\) – \(\frac{2}{x^{2}}\)
For turning point g'(x) = 0
Since x > 0, the acceptable value of x = 2
Hence g(x) has a local maximum at x = 2 and local maximum value is g(2) = \(\frac{2}{2}\) + \(\frac{2}{2}\) = 2
5. Given; g(x) = \(\frac{1}{x^{2}+2}\)
For turning point g'(x) = 0
Hence g(x) has a local maximum at x = 2 and maximum value is g(2) = \(\frac{1}{0+2}=\frac{1}{2}\).
Question 18.
Find the absolute maximum value and minimum value of the following functions.
 f(x) = x^{3}, x ∈ [2, 2]
 f(x) = 4x – \(\frac{x^{2}}{2}\), x ∈ \(\left[2, \frac{9}{2}\right]\)
Answer:
1. Given; f(x) = x^{3} ⇒ f'(x) = 3x^{2}
For turning point f'(x) = 0 ⇒ 3x^{2} = 0 ⇒ x = 0
f( 2) = (2 )^{3} = 8
f( 2) = (2)^{3} = 8
f(0) = (0)^{3} = 0
Absolute maximum = max{8, 8, 0} = 8
Absolute minimum = min {8, 8, 0} = – 8
2. Given; f(x) = 4x – \(\frac{x^{2}}{2}\) ⇒ f'(x) = 4 – x
For turning point f'(x) = 0 ⇒ 4 – x = 0
⇒ x = 4
Absolute maximum = max{10, 8, 7.875} = 8
Absolute minimum = min {10, 8, 7.87} = 10.

 (0, 2π)
 (0, π)
 (π/2, π/2)
Answer:
f(x) = sinx ⇒ f'(x) = cosx changes sign.
 Interval (0, 2π). ∴ f(x) is not monotonic.
 f'(x) changes sign in (0, π) not monotonic.
 f'(x) > 0 in (π/2, π/2), ie. f(x) is strictly monotonic.
Question 21.
Find the approximate change in the Surface Area of a cube of side x meters caused by decreasing the side by 1%.
Answer:
We have;
S = 6x^{2} and ∆x = 1% of x = 0.01x
dS = \(\frac{d S}{d x}\) ∆x = 6 × 2x × ∆x
= 6 × 2x × 0.01x = 0.02 × 6x^{2} = 0.02S
⇒ \(\frac{d S}{S}\) = 0.02
Therefore 2% is the approximate decrease in surface area.

 Find the rate of change of the Perimeter.
 Find \(\frac{d A}{dt}\) when x = 12 cm and y = 5 cm.
Answer:
Since the length ‘x’ is decreasing and the width ‘y’ is increasing, we have \(\frac{d x}{dt}\) = 2 cm/s and \(\frac{d y}{dt}\)
= 2 cm/sec.
1. The Perimeter ‘P’ of the rectangle is given by
P = 2 (x + y)
2. The area ‘A’ of the rectangle ‘A’ is given by
A = x.y
= 12(2) + 5(2)
= 24 – 10 = 14 cm2/s.
Question 2.
Find the equation of all lines having slope 1. Which are tangents to the curve?
y = \(\frac{1}{x1}\), x ≠ 1
Answer:
⇒ x^{2} – 2x = 0 ⇒ x(x – 2) = 0 ⇒ x = 0, x = 2
At x = 0, y = 1
Equation of tangent at (0, 1) is;
At x = 2, y = \(\frac{1}{21}\) = 1
Equation of tangent at (2, 1) is; y – 1 = 1(x – 2)
⇒ y – 1 = x + 2 ⇒ x + y – 3 = 0.
Question 3.
Find the points on the curve x^{2} + y^{2} – 2x – 3 = 0 at which the tangent are parallel to xaxis.
Answer:
Given; x^{2} + y^{2} – 2x – 3 = 0
Differentiating with respect to x;
Since the tangent is parallel to xaxis \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 0
\(\frac{1x}{y}\) = 0 ⇒ x = 1
We have; (1)^{2} + y^{2} – 2(1) – 3 = 0
⇒ y^{2} = 4 ⇒ y = ±2
Hence the points are (1, 2), (1, 2).
Question 4.
Find the equation of the tangent to the curve y = \(\sqrt{3 x2}\) which is parallel to the line 4x – 2y + 5 = 0.
Answer:
Slope of the line 4x – 2y + 5 = 0 is 2.
acceptable since y is positive.
Hence the point is \(\left(\frac{41}{48}, \frac{3}{4}\right)\)
Equation of tangent is;
⇒ 6(4y – 3) = (48x – 41)
⇒ 24y – 18 = 48x – 41
⇒ 48x – 24y – 23 = 0.
Question 5.
Prove that the curve x = y^{2} and xy = k cut at right angles, if 8k^{2} = 1.
Answer:
x = y^{2} ___(1)
⇒ 1 = 2y \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) ⇒ \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = \(\frac{1}{2y}\)
xy = 2k ___(2)
⇒ x \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) + y.1 = 0 ⇒ \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = \(\frac{y}{x}\)
The product of the slopes will be – 1.
Question 6.

 Find the equation to the curve. (2)
Answer:
1. Given gradient as 3x^{2} – 12 ⇒ \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 3x^{2} – 12
Slope at (2, 7) is given by
\(\left(\frac{d y}{d x}\right)_{x=2}\) = 3(2)^{2} – 12 = 0
Since slope is zero, the tangent is parallel to x – axis.
Here y = – 7 is the equation of the tangent at (2, 7).
2. Given, \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 3x^{2} – 12
⇒ ∫dy = ∫(3x^{2} – 12 )dx
y = 3\(\frac{x^{3}}{3}\) – 12x + c ⇒ y = x^{3} – 12x + c ____(1)
Given (2, 7) is a point on the curve.
(1) ⇒ 7 = (2)^{3} – 12(2) + c ⇒ 7 = 8 – 24 + c ⇒ c = 9
∴ Curve is y = x^{3} – 12x + 9.

⇒ f'(x) = 6x^{2} – 6x – 36
f'(x) = 0 ⇒ 6x^{2} – 6x – 36 = 0
⇒ 6(x^{2} – x – 6) = 0
⇒ 6(x + 2)(x – 3) = 0 ⇒ x = 2, 3
The intervals are (∞, 2),( 2, 3), (3, ∞)
f'(3) = 6(3 + 2)(3 – 3) > 0.
∴ Strictly increasing in (∞, 2).
f'(0) = 6(2)(3) < 0.
∴ Strictly decreasing in ( 2, 3).
f'(4) = 6(4 + 2)(4 – 3) > 0

Then; f(x) = y
f(x + ∆x) = y + ∆y
(0.999)^{\(\frac{1}{10}\)} = x^{\(\frac{1}{10}\)} + ∆y
(0.999)^{\(\frac{1}{10}\)} = (1)^{\(\frac{1}{10}\)} + ∆y
⇒ (0.999)^{\(\frac{1}{10}\)} = 1 + ∆y ______(1)
(1) ⇒ (0.999)^{\(\frac{1}{10}\)} = 1 – 0.0001 = 0.9999.

Then; f(x) = y
f(x + ∆x) = y + ∆y
(15)^{\(\frac{1}{4}\)} = x^{\(\frac{1}{4}\)} + ∆y
(15)^{\(\frac{1}{4}\)} = 16^{\(\frac{1}{4}\)} + ∆y
(15)^{\(\frac{1}{4}\)} = 2 + ∆y ____(1)
⇒ ∆y ≈ dy = \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) ∆x

f(x + ∆x) = y + ∆y
f (5.001) = f(x) + ∆y
f(5.001) = f(5) + ∆y
f(5.001) = 5^{3} – 7(5)^{2} + 15 + ∆y
⇒ f(5.001) = 35 + ∆y …
⇒ ∆y ≈ dy = \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) ∆x ⇒ dy = (3x^{2} – 14x) × 0.001
= (3(5)^{2} – 14(5)) × 0.001 = (7570)0.001 = 0.005
(1) ⇒ f(5.001) = 35 + 0.005 = 34.995.
Question 14.
Find the approximate value of f(3.02) where f(x) = 3x^{2} + 5x + 3
Answer:
Let x = 3 and ∆x = 0.02
Then; f(x) = y
f(x + ∆x) = y + ∆y
f(3.02) = f(x) + ∆y
f(3.02) = f(3) + ∆y
f(3.02) = 3(3)^{2} + 5(2) + 3 + ∆y
⇒ f(3.02) = 45 + ∆y ____(1)
⇒ ∆y ≈ dy = \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) ∆x ⇒ dy = (6x + 5) × 0.02
= (6(3) + 5) × 0.02 = (18 + 5)0.02 = 0.46
(1) ⇒ f(3.02) = 45 + 0.46 = 45.46.
Question 15.
Consider the function y = f\(\sqrt{x}\)

Let x = 125, ∆x = 1
Then; f(x) = y
Question 17.
Find two numbers x and y such that their sum is 35 and the product is x^{2} y^{5} a maximum.
Answer:
Given; x + y = 35 ⇒ y = 35 – x
P = x^{2} y^{5} ⇒ P = x^{2}(35 – x)^{5}
⇒ p’ = 2x(3 5 – x)^{5} + x^{2} 5(35 – x)^{4}(1)
⇒ P’ = x(35 – x)^{4}[2(35 x) – 5x]
⇒ p’ = x(35 – x)^{4}[70 – 7x]
⇒ p’ = 7x(35 – x)^{4}[10 – x]
⇒ p” = 7[x(3 5 – x)^{4} [1] + x(10 – x)4(35 – x)^{3} (1) + (35 – x)^{4}(10 – x)]
For turning points P’ = 0
⇒ 7x(35 – x)^{4}[10 – x] = 0
⇒ x = 0, 35, 10
x = 0, 35 can be rejected since correspondingly y will be y = 35, 0
⇒ P” = 7[10(35 – 10)^{4}[1]] < 0
Therefore maximum at x = 10
Thus the numbers are 10 and 35 – 10= 10.
Question 18.

Answer:
Take y = x^{\(\frac{1}{3}\)}, let x = 64 and ∆x = 1

Question 19.
 Find the point on the curve y = x^{3} – 10x + 8 at which the tangent is parallel to the line y = 2x + 1. (2)
 Is the given line tangent to the curve? Why?
Answer:
1. \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 3x^{2} – 10
Slope of the line y = 2x +1 is 2
⇒ 3x^{2} – 10 = 2 ⇒ 3x^{2} = 12 ⇒ x = ±2
When x = 2
y = 2^{3} – 10 × 2 + 8 = 8 – 20 + 8 = 4
When x = – 2
y = (2)^{3} 10 × (2) + 8 = 8 + 20 + 8 = 20
Therefore the points are (2, 4); (2, 20)
2. No. Since (2, 4); (2, 20) does not satisfies the equation y = 2x + 1.

Differentiating w.r.t t,
2. Let ‘s’ denote the surface area of the balloon, then
S = 4πr^{2}
Differentiating, \(\frac{d s}{d t}\) = 4π.2r.\(\frac{d r}{d t}\) =8.π r .\(\frac{d r}{d t}\)
= 8π × 15 × \(\frac{1}{\pi}\) = 120 cm^{2}/sec.

Question 24.
Find the point on the curve y = x^{3} – 11x + 5 at which the tangent is y = x – 11.
Answer:
Slope of the line y = x – 11 is 1.
Given; y = x^{3} – 11x + 5 ⇒ \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 3x^{2} – 11 = 1
⇒ 3x^{2} = 12 ⇒ x = ±2
At x = 2, ⇒ y = x – 11 = 2 11 = 9
⇒ (2, 9)
At x = 2, ⇒ y = x – 11 = 2 – 11 = 13
⇒ (2, 13)
But the point (2, 13) do not lie on the curve, hence the point is (2, 9).
Question 25.
Consider the curve y = x^{2} – 2x + 7
 Find the slope of the tangent of the curve at x = 2. (2)
 Write down the equation of the tangent at x =2. (2)
Answer:
1. Given, y = x^{2} – 2x + 7 ⇒ y’ = 2x – 2
(y’)_{x=2} = 2(2) – 2 = 2.
2. At x = 2 , y = 2^{2} – 2(2) + 7 = 7.
Equation of the tangent at (2, 7) is
y – 7 = 2(x – 2) ⇒ 2x – y + 3 = 0.
Question 26.
Find the absolute maximum value and minimum value of the following functions.
 f(x) = 2x^{3} – 15x^{2} + 36x + 1, x ∈ [1, 5]
 f(x) = 12x^{\(\frac{4}{3}\)} – 6x^{\(\frac{1}{3}\)}, x ∈ [1, 1]
Answer:
1. Given; f(x) = 2x^{3} – 15x^{2} + 36x + 1, x ∈ [1, 5]
⇒ f'(x) = 6x^{2} – 30x + 36
For turning point f'(x) = 0 ⇒ 6x^{2} – 30x + 36 = 0
⇒ x^{2} – 5x + 6 = 0 ⇒ (x 3)(x – 2) = 0
⇒ x = 3, 2
f(1) = 2(1)^{3} – 15(1)^{2} + 36(1) + 1 = 24
f(2) = 2(2)^{3} – 15(2)^{2} + 36(2) + 1 = 29
f(3) = 2(3)^{3} – 15(3)^{2} + 36(3) + 1 = 28
f(5) = 2(5)^{3} – 15(5)^{2} + 36(5) + 1 = 56
Absolute maximum = max {24, 29, 28, 56} = 56
Absolute minimum = min {24, 29, 28, 56} = 24
2. Given;
f'(x) = 0 at x = \(\frac{1}{8}\) and f'(x) is not defined at x = 0. Therefore;
Absolute maximum = max {18, 0, 6, \(\frac{9}{4}\)} = 18
Absolute minimum = min {18, 0, 6, \(\frac{9}{4}\)} = \(\frac{9}{4}\).
Question 27.
Consider the function y = x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 3x – 1
 Find the slope at x= 1. (1)
 Find the minimum gradient of the above curve. (3)
Answer:
1. Given,
y = x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 3x – 1 ⇒ y’ = 3x^{2} – 12x + 3
Gradient at (x = 1) = (y’)_{x=1} = 3(1)^{2} – 12(1) + 3 = 18.
2. Now for minimum gradient we have to apply maxima – minima condition to the function y’ .ie, y” = 6x – 12 , for turning points of y’ is given by y” = 0.
Therefore, 6x – 12 = 0 ⇒ x = 2
Now, y”’ = 6 > 0
∴ y’ is maximum at x = 2.
Minimum gradient at (x = 2) is
= 12 – 24 + 3 = – 9.

Question 1.
A curve passes through the origin, and its gradient function is 2x – \(\frac{x^{2}}{2}\)
 Find its y coordinate when x= 2. (4)
 Find the equation of the tangent at x= 2. (2)
Answer:
Given;
Integrating we have; ∫dy = ∫(2x – \(\frac{x^{2}}{2}\))dx
⇒ y = x^{2} – \(\frac{x^{3}}{6}\) + c ___(1)
Since the curve passes through (0, 0)
(1) ⇒ 0 = 0 + c ⇒ c = 0
∴ Equation of the curve is y = x^{2} – \(\frac{x^{3}}{6}\)
When x = 2 ⇒ y = 2^{2} – \(\frac{2^{3}}{6}\) = \(\frac{8}{3}\)
∴ coordinate is (2, \(\frac{8}{3}\)).
2. Slope at (2, \(\frac{8}{3}\)) = 2 × 2 – \(\frac{2^{2}}{2}\) = 2
∴ Equation of the tangent at (2, \(\frac{8}{3}\)) is given by
y – \(\frac{8}{3}\) = 2(x – 2)
⇒ 3y – 8 = 6x – 12
⇒ 3y = 6x – 4.

(a) \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 0, since tangents are parallel to x axis.
\(\frac{9x}{25}\) = 0, x = 0 ∴ y = ± 3;
The points are (0, 3) and (0, 3)
(b) \(\frac{25 y}{9 x}\) = 0, since tangents are parallel to yaxis, slope of normal = 0; y = o
∴ x = ± 5
The points are (5, 0) and (5, 0)

 Show that the rectangle of maximum area that can be inscribed in a circle of radius r is a square of side \(\sqrt{2} r\). (1)
Answer:
1. Area of the rectangle is ∆ = xy
From the figure y = 2r sinθ, x = 2r cosθ
∆ = xy = 4r^{2}sinθcosθ = 2r^{2}sin2θ
2. \(\frac{d \Delta}{d \theta}\) = 4r^{2} cos2θ ⇒ \(\frac{d^{2} \Delta}{d \theta^{2}}\) = 8r^{2}sin2θ
3. For turning points
Therefore local maximum at θ = \(\frac{\pi}{4}\)
4. Then;
Hence the rectangle becomes a square.

Answer:
1. Given;
Integrating we get,
∴ Slope of the curve at x = e is given by
\(\left(\frac{d y}{d x}\right)_{x=e}\) = loge = 1.
2. We have,
\(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = logx, ⇒ dy = logxdx
Integrating we get,
∫dy = ∫logx dx ⇒ y = logx.x – ∫\(\frac{1}{x}\).x dx + c_{2}
⇒ y = xlogx – x + c_{2} ____(2)
Given; y = 1 when x = 1
(2) ⇒ 1 = 1log1 – 1 + c_{2} ⇒ 1 = 0 – 1 + c_{2} ⇒ c_{2} = 2
Therefore the equation of the curve is
y = xlogx – x + 2
3. We have, y = xlogx – x + 2
When x = e
⇒ y = e log e – e + 2 ⇒ y = e – e + 2 = 2
So we have to find the slope at (e, 2),
We know; \(\left(\frac{d y}{d x}\right)_{x=e}\) = log e = 1
∴ Slope of the normal at (e, 2)= 1
∴ Equation of the normal at (e, 2) is.
y – 2 = (1) (x – e)
y – 2 = – x + e ⇒ y + x = e + 2.

⇒ x = 1, 3
These turning point divide the domain of f(x) in the following intervals. (∞, 3), (3, 1), (1, ∞) in (∞, 3)
⇒ f'(4) = 3(4)^{2} + 6(4) – 9 > 0
Hence increasing.
In (3, 1) ⇒ f'(0) = 3(0)^{2} + 6(0) – 9 < 0
Hence decreasing.
In (1, ∞) ⇒ f'(2) = 3(2)^{2} + 6(2) – 9 > 0
Hence increasing.

Of all the Cylinders with given surface area, show that the volume is maximum when height is equal to the diameter of the base.
Answer:
Let r be the radius, h be the height, V be the volume and S be the surface area
S = 2πr^{2} + 2 πrh
S – 6πr^{2} = 0
2πr^{2} + 2πrh – 6πr^{2} = 0
So h = 2r
So volume is maximum when h = 2r.

(∞, 3 ) is strictly decreasing
(3, ∞) is strictly increasing.
(iii) f'(x) = 3x^{2} – 12x + 9
f^{11} = 6x — 12
For maxima, minima
f^{1} = 0 → 3x^{2} – 12x + 9 = 0
3(x – 3)(x — 1) = 0; x = 3, x = 1
At x = 3 f^{11}(x) = 6 × 3 – 12 = 18 – 12 = 6 > 0
f is minimum, the local minimum value of f = 8
At x = 1 f^{11}(x) = 6 × 1 – 12 = 6 < 0,

V = x(242x)^{2}, 0 < x < 12.
(iii) \(\frac{d V}{d x}\) = x.2(24 – 2x)(2) + (24 – 2x)^{2}
= 4x(24 – 2x) + (24 – 2x)^{2}
= 96x + 8x^{2} + 576 + 4x^{2} – 96x
= 12x^{2} – 192x + 576
For maximum or minimum,

Question 12.
A square tank of capacity 250 m^{3} has to be dugout. The cost of land is Rs. 50 per m^{2}. The cost of digging increases with the depth and for the whole tank is Rs. 400 × (depth)^{2}.
 Find an expression for the cost of digging the tank. (3)
 Find the dimension of the tank when the total cost is least. (3)
Answer:
1. Let x, x and y be the length, breadth, and depth of the tank.
Then, V = x. x. y = 250 ⇒ y = \(\frac{250}{x^{2}}\).
Area of land = x^{2}
⇒ Cost of land = 50 x^{2}
(∵ cost of land is Rs.50/m^{2})
Cost of digging = 400 × (depth)^{2} = 400 × (y)^{2}
∴ Total cost = C = 50 x^{2} + 400 × (y)^{2}
2. We have, C = 50x^{2} + \(\frac{400 \times(250)^{2}}{x^{4}}\).
Differentiating w.r.t.x, we get,
∴ Maximum at x = 10
m ⇒ when x = 10m and
y = \(\frac{250}{10^{2}}\) = 2.5m the total cost is least.

⇒ S^{2} = π^{2}r^{2}l^{2} = P
⇒ P = π^{2}r^{2}(h^{2} + r^{2}) ⇒ P = π^{2}r^{2}h^{2} + π^{2}r^{4})
⇒ 2r^{2} = h^{2} ⇒ h = \(\sqrt{2} r\).

Answer:
1. Area of the isosceles triangle is ∆ = \(\frac{1}{2}\)bh
From the figure b = r sin2θ, h = r + r cos2θ
2. For turning points
Therefore local maximum a θ = \(\frac{\pi}{6}\) which means the area of the isosceles triangle is maximum When θ = \(\frac{\pi}{6}\).
3. Then; ∠OCB = 30° ⇒ ∠ACB = 2∠OCB = 60°. Therefore the isosceles triangle is an equilateral triangle.

(c) Find the absolute extreme values of f(x). (2)
Answer:
(i)
A – Point  B – Nature 
x = a  Absolute minimum 
x = b  Local maximum 
x = e  Point of inflexion 
x = d  Absolute maximum 
(ii) (a) f(x) = 12x^{3} – 24x^{2} + 24x – 48
For turning points,
f'(x) = 0 ⇒ 12x^{3} – 24x^{2} + 24x – 48 = 0
⇒ x^{3} – 2x^{2} + 2x – 4 = 0
⇒ (x^{2} + 2)(x – 2) = 0 ⇒ x = ± (\(\sqrt{2}\), 2)
We admit only x = 2 as x = \(\sqrt{2}\) is not a real number.
Therefore at x = 2 f (x) has a turning point.
(b) f”(x) = 36x^{2} – 48x + 24
⇒ f”(2) = 36(2)^{2} – 48 × 2 + 24 > 0
Therefore at x = 2 f(x) has a local minimum.
(c) f(0) = 25,
f(2) = 3(2)^{4} – 8(2)^{3} + 12(2)^{2} – 48 × 2 + 25 = 39
f(3) = 3(3)^{4} – 8(3)^{3} + 12(3)^{2} – 48 × 3 + 25 = 16
Consider the set { f (0), f{2), f (3)}
⇒ {25, 39, 16}
The maximum value of the above set is the absolute maximum and it is 25 at x = 0. The minimum value of the above set is the absolute minimum and it is 39 at x = 2.
Question 16.
An open box with a square base is to be made out of a given quantity of sheet of area a^{2}.
 If the box has side x units, then show that volume V= \(\frac{a^{2} xx^{3}}{4}\) (2)
 Show that the maximum volume is \(\frac{a^{3}}{6 \sqrt{3}}\) (4)
Answer:
1. Area = a^{2} = x^{2} + 4xh,
h = height of the box.
2. We have,

Answer:
Question 18.
A cylindrical can with a volume of 125m3 (about 2 litres) is to be made by cutting its top and bottom from metal squares and forming its curved side by bending a rectangular sheet of metal to match its ends. What radius ‘r’ and height ‘h’ of the can will minimize the amount of material required.
Answer:
The circular top and bottom should be cut out from a square metal sheet of side 2r. Therefore the area of squares is 8r^{2}.
Area A = 8r^{2} + 2πrh
∴ To minimize the amount of material, r = 2.5
\(h=\frac{125}{\pi(2.5)^{2}}=6.3\).
Question 19.
A rectangle sheet of tin with adjascent sides 45cm and 24cm is to be made into a box • without top, by cutting off equal squares from the comers and folding up the flaps
 Taking the side of the square cut off as x, express the volume of the box as the function of x. (2)
 For what value of x, the volume of the box will be maximum. (4)
Answer:
1. Length of the box = 45 – 2x
Breadth of the box = 24 – 2x
Height of the box = x
Volume; V = (45 – 2x)(24 – 2x)x
= (1080 – 138x + 4x^{2})x
= 4x^{3} – 138x^{2} + 1080x.
2. \(\frac{d y}{d x}\) = 12x^{2} – 276x + 1080
12x^{2} – 276x + 1080 = 0
x^{2} – 23x + 90 = 0
x = 18, 5
x = 18 is impossible
∴ x = 5 when x = 5, \(\frac{d^{2} y}{d x^{2}}\) < 0
The volume of the box is maximum at x = 5.
