### If Rolle's theorem for f(x) = ex (sin x - cos x) is verified on then the value of c is

Solution:

Correct Answer :- d

Explanation : Thus, all the conditions of Rolle’s theorem are satisfied.

Now, we have to show that, there exists a point c ∈ (π/4 , 5π/4) such that f'(c) = 0.

⇒ ex(sinx – cosx) + ex(cosx + sinx) = 0

⇒ (sinx – cosx) + (cosx + sinx) = 0

⇒ 2sinx = 0 ⇒ sinx = 0

⇒ c = π ∈ (π/4 , 5π/4)

Find the derivative of sin(2sin−1x).

Solution:

Correct Answer :- a

Explanation : Suppose we want to find the differentiation of a function of x, say f(x). We can write it as: df/dx

Now, if f(x) is itself is not a function of x, but of another function of x, suppose g. That is, we have f[g(x)], we have to use the chain rule of differentiation.

df/dx = df/dg × dg/dx

In the given question, it is clearly observable that

f (x)=sin(x)   and   g(x)=2sin-1(x)

Thus the answer is as follows:

cos(2sin-1(x)) × 2/(√1−x2)

Correct Answer :- a

Explanation : Suppose we want to find the differentiation of a function of x, say f(x). We can write it as: df/dx

Now, if f(x) is itself is not a function of x, but of another function of x, suppose g. That is, we have f[g(x)], we have to use the chain rule of differentiation.

df/dx = df/dg × dg/dx

In the given question, it is clearly observable that

f (x)=sin(x)   and   g(x)=2sin-1(x)

Thus the answer is as follows:

cos(2sin-1(x)) × 2/(√1−x2)

QUESTION: 18
