1. Evaluate the function at the given numbers (correct to six decimals places). Use the results to guess the value of the limit,or explain why it does not exist.

F(t)=( t^(1/3) - 1)/(t^(1/2) - 1) ;
t= 1.5,1.2,1.1,1.01,1.001;
The limit of F(t) as t approaches 1.

My work:

t=1.001, F(t)= 0.666611
t=1.01, F(t)=0.666114
t=1, F(t)= empty
t= 1.1, F(t)=0.661358
t=1.2,F(t)= 0.656488
t=1.5,F(t)=0.643905

The limit of F(t) as x approaches 1 is 0.66????

2. The slope of the tangent line to the graph of the exponential function y=2^x at the point (0,1) is the limit of (2^x-1)/x as x approaches 0. Estimate the slope to three decimal places.

1. #1 using l'Hospital's Rule,

( t^(1/3) - 1)/(t^(1/2) - 1) -> (1/3 t^2/3)/(1/2 t^1/2)
= 2/3 t^-1/6
= 2/3 at t=1

If y=2^x,
y' = ln2 2^x
at x=0, that's just ln2
So, the line is

y-1 = ln2(x)
so, y = ln2 x + 1
So, the slope is ln2 = 0.693
See

Or, you can evaluate the limit, but you wind up with the same value.

What steps got you to 0.597?
