lve an equation, find the derivative of a function at a point, or calculate the value of a definite integral. However, you must clearly indicate the setup of your question, namely the equation, function, or integral you are using. If you use other built-in features or programs, you must show the mathematical steps necessary to produce your results. Your work must be expressed in standard mathematical notation rather than calculator syntax.
Show all of your work, even though the question may not explicitly remind you to do so. Clearly label any functions, graphs, tables, or other objects that you use. Justifications require that you give mathematical reasons, and that you verify the needed conditions under which relevant theorems, properties, definitions, or tests are applied. Your work will be scored on the correctness and completeness of your methods as well as your answers. Answers without supporting work will usually not receive credit.
Unless otherwise specified, answers (numeric or algebraic) need not be simplified. If your answer is given as a decimal approximation, it should be correct to three places after the decimal point.
Unless otherwise specified, the domain of a function f is assumed to be the set of all real numbers x for which f(x) is a real number.
Let f be a twice-differentiable function such that f′(2)=0 . The second derivative of f is given by f′′(x)=x2e2−x−1 for 0≤x≤6 .

29.A new viral illness was recently identified in the community. The virus caused people to develop “Itchy hand
disease” (IHD) –
disease” (IHD) – a disorder characterised by muscle aches and pains, fever and an itchy rash on the hands and
feet. Itchy hand disease is thought to have a higher incidence in older persons and smokers. Dr Boisty was
interested in determining whether healthcare workers were more at risk of developing IHD than were workers
in other sectors and decided to investigate this issue.
Five hundred health care workers were recruited into the study. They were compared to 700 office workers.
Both groups were followed for six months. During follow-up, any presentation to a doctor was notified to the
study team, who contacted the doctor to find out what the diagnosis was. The outcome of interest was IHD. Of
the 500 health care workers, 43 developed IHD during the study. Of the 700 office workers, 23 developed IHD
during the study.
Dr Boisty knew that many members of the community liked to take a supplement called Herbal Extract X (‘HEX’)
to try to “boost their immune system”. Herbal Extract X was also suspected of causing IHD. So, Dr Boisty
collected information on the use of HEX by the study participants.
Of the health care workers, 400 used HEX; 39 of these developed IHD. Of the office workers, 300 used HEX; 15
of these developed IHD.
31.Statistics help. Find the mean and standard deviation for the 65 low prices in your sample and provide the printout
de the printout below. Use these values as estimates of the mean and standard deviation found in the population of all low prices. Suppose that the low prices were normally distributed (regardless of what your data may indicate). Find the proportion of all low prices that would be between $20 and $50 in the population. I want you to show your work. To receive full credit, you should include pictures of the normal curve (labeled with both x and z-values) with the pertinent probabilities shaded in the picture
32.My lecture notes say that f(x)=f(x0)+f'(x0)(x-x0) + R1(x;x0) is the tangent line equation with R1(x;x0) being impossible to find so
x0) being impossible to find so it can be dropped. My lecture notes also say f(x) = f(x0) + integral of f'(t)dt with upper bound x and lower bound x0. I'm just confused as to which is the tangent line approximation because they seem to be different equations. If the integral is evaluated on the 2nd one it gives f(x)-f(x0) but the 2nd term for the first equation (dropping R1(x;x0) gives xf'(x0)-x0f'(x0) which seems to be a different term to me. So I'm wondering which is the tangent line equation (or if the tangent line equation has more than 1 unique form) or how the second one equals the first if they are equal.
