The function f is defined by f(x)= (25x^2)^(1/2) for 5 less than or = x less than or = 5
A) find f'(x)
B) write an equation for the tangent to the graph of f at x=3
C) let g be the function defined by g(x)= (f(x) for 5<or=x<or=3)and (x+7 for 3<or=x<or=5)
D) find the value of the intagral 5 over 0 of x(25x^2)^(1/2)dx

do you have no idea at all about any of these questions? Hard to believe this would come up till the topics have been covered. They look like pretty straightforward calculus and algebra operations.
How far do you get?

i found A and B, just checking if they're right. C i can never remember how to do these. D i haven't tried yet but i could probably figure out but i figured since i was putting the rest up i would do it as well

There's nothing to figure out for C. They're just defining a new function. Not sure why it's even there.
For D, it's pretty straightforward. Let
u = 25x^2
then du = 2x dx and we have
∫[0,5] x√(25x^2) dx
= ∫[5,0] 1/2 √u du
and it's clear sailing from there on

thank youu

A: d/dx √(25x^2) = x/√(25x^2)
B. At x=3, f(x)=4, so
f'(3) = 3/4
Now you have a point (3,4) and a slope: 3/4
y4 = 3/4 (x3)
