6 The table records the rate of change of air temperature, H, as a function of time, t, during one morning. When was the temperature a local minimum? Local maximum? t (hours since midnight) 6789101112 dH/dt ( ◦ F/hour) 120 −2 032 A local maximum occurs at 8:00AM A local minimum occurs at 10:00AM.

7 Which of the following pieces of information from a daily weather report allow you to conclude with certainty that there was a local maximum of temperature at some time after 10:00 am and before 2:00 pm? (a)Temperature 50 ◦ at 10:00 am and 50◦ and falling at 2:00 pm. (b) Temperature 50 ◦ at 10:00 am and 40 ◦ at 2:00 pm. (c) Temperature rising at 10:00 am and falling at 2:00 pm. (d) Temperature 50 ◦ at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm, 60 ◦ at noon. (e) Temperature 50 ◦ at 10:00 am and 60 ◦ at 2:00 pm. Yes No, may have been strictly decreasing. Yes No, may have been strictly increasing.

8 If the graph in Figure 4.2 is that of f′(x), which of the following statements is true concerning the function f? (a) The derivative is zero at two values of x, both being local maxima. (b) The derivative is zero at two values of x, one is a local maximum while the other is a local minimum. (c) The derivative is zero at two values of x, one is a local maximum on the interval while the other is neither a local maximum nor a minimum. (d) The derivative is zero at two values of x, one is a local minimum on the interval while the other is neither a local maximum nor a minimum. (e) The derivative is zero only at one value of x where it is a local minimum. Figure 4.2

10 Applied Calculus,4/E, Deborah Hughes-Hallett Copyright 2010 by John Wiley and Sons, All Rights Reserved Problem 36 Assume f has a derivative everywhere and just one critical point, at x = 3. In parts (a) – (d), you are given additional conditions. In each case, decide whether x = 3 is a local maximum, a local minimum, or neither. Sketch possible graphs for all four cases. (a) f ‘ (1) = 3 and f ‘ (5) = – 1 (b) f (x) → ∞ as x → ∞ and as x → – ∞ (c) f (1) = 1, f (2) = 2, f (4) = 4, f (5) = 5 (d) f ‘ (2) = – 1, f (3) = 1, f (x) → 3 as x → ∞
