1. Let g(x) = where f is shown at right. Homework Help ✎

1. Find g(2) and g(4).

2. Is g(−2) = ?

3. Express in terms of g.

4. Is g differentiable over the interval −2 < x < 6 ? Explain.

5. Find all values of x on the interval −2 < x < 6 where g has a relative maximum.

6. Find the line tangent to g at x = 4.

7. Find all values of x on the interval −2 < x < 6 where g has a point of inflection.  $\text{Since }g(x)\text{ was defined as }\int_{0}^{x}f(t)dt,$

$g(2)=\int_{0}^{2}f(t)dt$

$g(4)=\int_{0}^{4}f(t)dt$ Consider the symmetry of the f(t) between t = −2 and t = 2.  $\int_{-2}^{2}f(t)dt=kg(a)$

What is k? What is a? Points of NON-differentiablity include cusps, endpoints, jumps, holes and vertical tangents. Recall that a local maximum exists where the derivative changes from positive to negative. This could happen where f '(x) = 0 or where f '(x) = DNE.

Notice that g'(x) = f(x); after all, the derivative of an integral is the original function. What is the slope of g(x) at x = 4 (see second hint in part (e))? What is the y-value? Concavity is the slope of the slope. So inflection points are where the slope of the slope changes.
