What is Ap calculus: Definition and 117 Discussions
Advanced Placement Calculus (also known as AP Calculus, AP Calc, or simply AB / BC) is a set of two distinct Advanced Placement calculus courses and exams offered by the American nonprofit organization College Board. AP Calculus AB covers basic introductions to limits, derivatives, and integrals. AP Calculus BC covers all AP Calculus AB topics plus additional topics (including more advanced integration techniques such as integration by parts, Taylor series, parametric equations, vector calculus, polar coordinate functions, and curve interpolations).
I originally thought you’d have to use the chain rule to get h’, as in: f’(g(x))*g’(x). Plugging in 1 for x, I got an answer of 10. An online solution, however, said that you only had to get f(g(1)), which was f(-1), then look up f’(-1) in the table. Both approaches seem logical to me, but they...

OK the key said it was D
I surfed for about half hour trying to find a solution to this but $f'(0)$ doesn't equal any of these numbers
$e^0=\pm 1$ from the $e^{(x^2-1)^2}$
kinda ?
$\tiny{4.2.5}$
$\displaystyle\int^1_0{xe^x\ dx}$
is equal to
$A.\ \ {1}\quad B. \ \ {-1}\quad C. \ \ {2-e}\quad D.\ \ {\dfrac{e^2}{2}}\quad E.\ \ {e-1}$
ok I think this is ok possible typos
but curious if this could be solve not using IBP since the only variable is x
$\displaystyle\lim_{x \to 0}\dfrac{1-\cos^2(2x)}{(2x)^2}=$
by quick observation it is seen that this will go to $\dfrac{0}{0)}$
so L'H rule becomes the tool to use
but first steps were illusive
the calculator returned 1 for the Limit
1. $f(x)=(2x+1)^3$ and let g be the inverse function of f. Given that$f(0)=1$ what is the value of $g'(1)$?
A $-\dfrac{2}{27}$ B $\dfrac{1}{54}$ C $\dfrac{1}{27}$ D $\dfrac{1}{6}$ E 6
2. given that $\left[f(x)=x-2,\quad g(x)=\dfrac{x}{x^2+1}\right]$
find $f(g(-2))$...
I thot I posted this before but couldn't find it ... if so apologize
Let f be a function that is continuous on the closed interval [2,4] with $f(2)=10$ and $f(4)=20$
Which of the following is guaranteed by the $\textbf{Intermediate Value Theorem?}$
$a.\quad f(x)=13 \textit{ has a least one...
$\textsf{What is the area of the region in the first quadrant bounded by the graph of}$
$$y=e^{x/2} \textit{ and the line } x=2$$
a. 2e-2 b. 2e c. $\dfrac{e}{2}-1$ d. $\dfrac{e-1}{2}$ e. e-1Integrate
$\displaystyle \int e^{x/2}=2e^{x/2}$
take the limits...
Ok I thot I posted this before but after a major hunt no find
Was ? With these options since if f(x) Is a curve going below the x-axis Is possible and () vs []
If this is a duplicate post
What is the link.. I normally bookmark these
Mahalo ahead
If $f^{-1}(x)$ is the inverse of $f(x)=e^{2x}$, then $f^{-1}(x)=$$a. \ln\dfrac{2}{x}$
$b. \ln \dfrac{x}{2}$
$c. \dfrac{1}{2}\ln x$
$d. \sqrt{\ln x}$
$e. \ln(2-x)$
ok, it looks slam dunk but also kinda ?
my initial step was
$y=e^x$ inverse $\displaystyle x=e^y$
isolate
$\ln{x} = y$
the...
ok well it isn't just adding the areas of 2 functions but is $xf(x)$ as an integrand
Yahoo had an answer to this but its never in Latex so I couldn't understand how they got $\dfrac{7}{2}$
$\displaystyle g'=2xe^{kx}+e^{kx}kx^2$
we are given $ x=\dfrac{2}{3}$ then
$\displaystyle g'=\dfrac{4}{3}e^\left(\dfrac{2k}{3}\right)+e^\left({\dfrac{2k}{3}}\right)\dfrac{4k}{9}$
ok something is ? aren't dx supposed to set this to 0 to find the critical point
did a desmos look like k=-3 but ...

ok from online computer I got this
$\displaystyle\int_0^x e^{-t^2}=\frac{\sqrt{\pi }}{2}\text{erf}\left(t\right)+C$
not sure what erf(t) means
OK, this can only be done by observation so since we have v(t) I chose e
but the eq should have a minus sign.
here the WIP version of the AP Calculus Exam PDF as created in Overleaf

ok I got stuck real soon...
.a find where the functions meet $$\ln x = 5-x$$
e both sides
$$x=e^{5-x}$$ok how do you isolate x?
W|A returned $x \approx 3.69344135896065...$
but not sure how they got itb.?
c.?
yes I know this is a very common problem but likewise many ways to solve it
ok I really have a hard time with these took me 2 hours to do this
looked at some examples but some had 3 variables and 10 steps
confusing to get the ratios set up... ok my take on it is here
see if you can solve...
image due to graph, I tried to duplicate this sin wave on desmos but was not able to.
so with sin and cos it just switches to back and forth for the derivatives so thot a this could be done just by observation but doesn't the graph move by the transformations
well anyway?
A particle moves along the x-axis. The velocity of the particle at time t is $6t - t^2$.
What is the total distance traveled by the particle from time $t = 0$ to $t = 3$
ok we are given $v(t)$ so we do not have to derive it from a(t) since the initial $t=0$ we just plug in the $t=3$ into $v(t)$...
ok these always baffle me because f(t) is not known. however if $f'(t)>0$ then that means the slope is aways positive which could be just a line. but could not picture this to work in the tables.
Im sure the answer can be found quickly online but I don't learn by copy and paste. d was...

ok I think (a) could just be done by observation by just adding up obvious areas
but (b) and (c) are a litte ?
sorry had to post this before the lab closes
image due to macros in overleaf
well apparently all we can do is solve this by observation
which would be the slope as x moves in the positive direction
e appears to be the only interval where the slope is always increasing
The graph of $y=e^{\tan x} - 2$ crosses the x-axis at one point in the interval [0,1]. What is the slope of the graph at this point.
A. 0.606
B 2
C 2.242
D 2.961
E 3.747ok i tried to do a simple graph of y= with tikx but after an hour trying failed
doing this in demos it seens the answer is...

The temperature of water in a tub at time t is modeled by a strictly increasing, twice-differentiable function W. where...
ok basically t is 3 hours appart except between 7 and 12 of which I didn't know if we should intemperate.
other wise it is just adding up the 4 $(t)\cdot(R(t))$s.
ok just posted an image due to macros in the overleaf doc
this of course looks like a sin or cos wave and flips back and forth by taking derivatives
looks like a period of 12 and an amplitude of 3 so...
but to start I was not able to duplicate this on desmos
altho I think by observation alone...
ok again I used an image since there are macros and image
I know this is a very common problem in calculus but think most still stumble over it
inserted the graph of v(t) and v'(t) and think for v'(t) when the graph is below the x-axis that participle is moving to the left
the integral has a...
ok I posted a image to avoid any typos but was wondering why the question has dx and options are in dt
I picked C from observation but again that was assuming f was a horizontal line of which it could be something else
that way the limits stay the same but the area is cut in halfopinions...
I just posted a image due to overleaf newcommands and graph
ok (a) if we use f(20) then the $B=0$ so their no weight gain.
(b), (c), was a little baffled and not sure how this graph was derived...
The function f is defined by
$$f(x)=\sqrt{25-x^2},\quad -5\le x \le 5$$
(a) Find $f'(x)$ apply chain rule
$$
\dfrac{d}{dx}(25-x^2)^{1/2}
=\dfrac{1}{2}(25-x^2)^{-1/2}2x
=-\frac{x}{\sqrt{25-x^2}}$$
(b) Write an equation for the tangent line to the graph of f at $x=-3$...
I'm just going to post this image now since my tablet won't render the latex. This is a free response question..
But my experience is that the methods of solving are more focused here at mhb saving many error prone steps..
Mahalo ahead...
Ok not sure if I fully understand the steps but presume the first step would be divide both sides deriving$$\dfrac{dy}{dx}=\dfrac{2x-y}{x+2y}$$offhand don't know the correct answer
