Calculus for Scientists and Engineers: Early Transcendentals by William L. Briggs, Lyle Cochran, Bernard Gillett, Eric

By William L. Briggs, Lyle Cochran, Bernard Gillett, Eric Schulz

Drawing on their a long time of training event, William Briggs and Lyle Cochran have created a calculus textual content that consists of the teacher’s voice past the school room. That voice—evident within the narrative, the figures, and the questions interspersed within the narrative—is a grasp instructor major readers to deeper degrees of figuring out. The authors attract readers’ geometric instinct to introduce primary innovations and lay the root for the extra rigorous improvement that follows. accomplished workout units have got compliment for his or her creativity, caliber, and scope. This ebook is an increased model of Calculus: Early Transcendentals by way of an identical authors, with a whole bankruptcy dedicated to differential equations, extra sections on different subject matters, and extra workouts in such a lot sections.

Example text

If 0 6 b 6 1, then f is a decreasing function of x. For example, if b = 12, Larger values of b produce greater rates of increase in bx if b Ͼ 1. 46). x Smaller values of b produce greater rates of decrease in bx if 0 Ͻ b Ͻ 1. 46 ➤ The notation e was proposed by the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler (pronounced oiler) (1707–1783). Explain why f 1x2 = 11>32x is a decreasing function. ➤ QUICK CHECK 2 The Natural Exponential Function One of the bases used for exponential functions is special. For reasons that will become evident in upcoming chapters, the special base is e, one of the fundamental constants of mathematics.

3x - 1 if x 6 1 x + 1 if x Ú 1 y x2 - 4 ` x + 3 32. f 1x2 = 23x 2 - 12 x + 1 33. f 1x2 = 3 - ͉2x - 1͉ 6 0x-10 if x ϶ 1 34. ) 5 4 y ϭ g(x) 3 2 1 Ϫ1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 x Ϫ2 35–38. Slope functions Determine the slope function for the following functions. 35. f 1x2 = 2x + 1 36. f 1x2 = ͉x͉ 21. Parking fees Suppose that it costs 5. per minute to park at the airport with the rate dropping to 3. m. Find and graph the cost function c1t2 for values of t satisfying 0 … t … 120. m. 22. 50 per mile after the fifth mile.

On this domain f is one-toone and has an inverse. 55 Step 1: Solve y = 1x - 1 for x: The curves y ϭ x Ϫ 1 (x Ն 1) and y ϭ x2 ϩ 1 (x Ն 0) are symmetric about y ϭ x. y ϭ x2 Step 2: Interchange x and y and write y = f -11x2: ϩ 1 (x Ն 0) y = f -11x2 = x 2 + 1. 56. 56 y Symmetry about y ϭ x means… if (a, b) is on the graph of f, … y ϭ f(x) (a, b) yϭx y ϭ f Ϫ1(x) Related Exercises 31–40 ➤ f Ϫ1(x) y 2 = x - 1 or x = y 2 + 1. 56, you see a symmetry that always occurs when a function and its inverse are plotted on the same set of axes.
