sin(cos^-1(x/2))= draw right triangle to simplify

Calculus
Find all points on the graph of the function f(x) = 2 cos(x) + (cos(x))2 at which the tangent line is horizontal. Consider the domain x = [0,2π). I have pi/2 and 3pi/2 for x values. But when I plug them I get zero. Is this correct as y values or am I solving it wrong? I ...

Find the value of a so that the function f(x) = xe^(ax) has critical point at x = 9 I found that the derivative is axe^(ax)+e^(ax) But I am not sure where to go from here?

Let f(x)=3x^3 +7.5x +1. In this problem you will estimate f'(3) by computing the average rate of change of f(x)over a small interval. Round your answers to three decimal places. First choose the interval of length .1 with 3 being the left endpoint of the interval. Then f&#...

f(x,y) = 3x + 3y Show that for any epsilon in: |2x + 3y - 5| < epsilon There is a delta value: sqrt((x - 1)^2 + (y - 1)^2) < delta Solve for delta in terms of epsilon ------ I understand that this is a proof that the limit of f(x,y) as (x,y) -> (1,1) is 5. But I'm...

Find the derivative of f(x) which gives you f'(x). Set f'(x)=0 this will give you the critical values. and you use those to find the max and min. F'(x)= 101x^100 + 51x^50 + 1 0= 101x^100 + 51x^50 +1 the easiest way to find the critical numbers would be to use the ...
