Solutions for Chapter 6: Derivatives
Get Full SolutionsSummary 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.

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.

Pseudorandom numbers
Computergenerated 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 righthand end point of each subinterval.

Sine
The function y = sin x.

Symmetric about the yaxis
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.

yintercept
A point that lies on both the graph and the yaxis.
