Solutions for Chapter 6: Derivatives

Summary of Chapter 6: Derivatives

We use limits not only to define the derivative but also to develop efficient rules for finding derivatives. The applications of the derivative—which we introduce along the way—are endless because almost everything around us is in a state of change, and derivatives describe change.

This expansive textbook survival guide covers the following chapters and their solutions. Chapter 6: Derivatives includes 9 full step-by-step solutions. Calculus: Early Transcendentals was written by and is associated to the ISBN: 9780321570567. This textbook survival guide was created for the textbook: Calculus: Early Transcendentals, edition: 1. Since 9 problems in chapter 6: Derivatives have been answered, more than 411890 students have viewed full step-by-step solutions from this chapter.

Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Directed line segment

    See Arrow.

  • Distance (in a coordinate plane)

    The distance d(P, Q) between P(x, y) and Q(x, y) d(P, Q) = 2(x 1 - x 2)2 + (y1 - y2)2

  • Division algorithm for polynomials

    Given ƒ(x), d(x) ? 0 there are unique polynomials q1x (quotient) and r1x(remainder) ƒ1x2 = d1x2q1x2 + r1x2 with with either r1x2 = 0 or degree of r(x) 6 degree of d1x2

  • equation of a hyperbola

    (x - h)2 a2 - (y - k)2 b2 = 1 or (y - k)2 a2 - (x - h)2 b2 = 1

  • Equivalent equations (inequalities)

    Equations (inequalities) that have the same solutions.

  • Focal width of a parabola

    The length of the chord through the focus and perpendicular to the axis.

  • Horizontal component

    See Component form of a vector.

  • Identity properties

    a + 0 = a, a ? 1 = a

  • Infinite discontinuity at x = a

    limx:a + x a ƒ(x) = q6 or limx:a - ƒ(x) = q.

  • Initial point

    See Arrow.

  • Positive angle

    Angle generated by a counterclockwise rotation.

  • Pseudo-random numbers

    Computer-generated numbers that can be used to approximate true randomness in scientific studies. Since they depend on iterative computer algorithms, they are not truly random

  • Quadratic function

    A function that can be written in the form ƒ(x) = ax 2 + bx + c, where a, b, and c are real numbers, and a ? 0.

  • RRAM

    A Riemann sum approximation of the area under a curve ƒ(x) from x = a to x = b using x1 as the right-hand end point of each subinterval.

  • Sine

    The function y = sin x.

  • Symmetric about the y-axis

    A graph in which (-x, y) is on the graph whenever (x, y) is; or a graph in which (-r, -?) or (r, ?, -?) is on the graph whenever (r, ?) is

  • Term of a polynomial (function)

    An expression of the form anxn in a polynomial (function).

  • Variable (in statistics)

    A characteristic of individuals that is being identified or measured.

  • Work

    The product of a force applied to an object over a given distance W = ƒFƒ ƒAB!ƒ.

  • y-intercept

    A point that lies on both the graph and the y-axis.
