QUESTION: 1

### Consider the function f(x) = x2 – x – 2. The maximum value of f(x) in the closed interval [–4, 4] is

Solution:  ∴ f (x )has minimum at x= 1 / 2 It Shows that a maximum value that will be at x = 4  or x = - 4

At x = 4, f (x )= 10

∴ At x= −4, f (x ) = 18

∴ At x= −4, f (x ) has a maximum.

QUESTION: 2

### Solution:    QUESTION: 3

### Solution:  QUESTION: 4

The function f(x) = x3- 6x2+ 9x+25 has

Solution:   QUESTION: 5

The function f(x,y) = 2x2 +2xy – y3 has

Solution:  QUESTION: 6

Equation of the line normal to function f(x) = (x-8)2/3+1 at P(0,5) is

Solution:   QUESTION: 7

The distance between the origin and the point nearest to it on the surface z2 = 1 + xy is

Solution: or pr – q2 = 4 – 1 = 3 > 0 and r = +ve

so f(xy) is minimum at (0,0)

Hence, minimum value of d2 at (0,0)

d2 = x2 + y2 + xy + 1 = (0)2 + (0)2 + (0)(0) + 1 = 1

Then the nearest point is

z2 = 1 + xy = 1+ (0)(0) = 1

or z = 1
