The process of finding formulas to describe real-world phenomenon is called mathematical modeling.

Such formulas, together with the meaning assigned to the variables, are called mathematical models.

A set is a collection of objects whose contents can be clearly determined. The objects in a set are called

the elements of a set.

of representing a set is called the roster method.

The above set can also be represented in the set-builder notation as follows:

A = {x| x is a counting number}.

The intersection of sets A and B, written as A I B , is the set of elements that are common to both set A

and set B. That is, in the set-builder notation, it is written as:

As an example, the intersection of set A = {7, 8, 9, 10, 11} and set B = {6, 8, 10, 12} is the new

set C = {8, 10}.

The union of sets A and B, written as A U B , is the set of elements that are members of set A or of set B

or of both sets. That is, in the set-builder notation, it is written as:

A U B ={x | x is an element of set A or x is an element of set B}

As an example, the union of A = {7, 8, 9, 10, 11} and B = {6, 8, 10, 12} is the new set C = {6, 7, 8, 9, 10,

11, 12}.

If a set has no elements, it is called an empty set or a null set and is represented by the symbol, ∅.

As an example, the intersection of A = {2, 4, 6} and B = {3, 5, 7} is an empty set since there are no

elements common to both set A and set B.

If a is a nonnegative real number, the nonnegative number b such that b2 = a, denoted by b = a , is the

principal square root of a.

CONTINUITY

1. Definition of Continuity

Let c be a number in the open interval (a, b), and let f(x) be a function whose domain contains the

open interval (a, b). The function f(x) is continuous at the point x = c if the following conditions

are true:

9 f(c) is defined

x c

and

9 Lim f(x) = f(c)

x c

Note:

¾ If f(x) is continuous at every point in the interval (a, b), then it is continuous on the

interval (a,b).

¾ A polynomial function is continuous at every real number (See Example 1 on page 62).

¾ A rational function is continuous at every number in its domain (See Example 2 on

page 63)

If a function f(x) is continuous at every point in an open interval (a, b) except at c, then c is a

discontinuity of the function. Discontinuity falls into 2 categories: removable and non-removable.

X 2 − 16

Example 1: Let f(x) = be a function.

X −4

at x = 4.

But we can redefine the function as follows:

( X − 4)( X + 4)

f(x) =

( X − 4)

This can be simplified to f(x) = (x + 4) after canceling (x-4) from both the

denominator and the numerator.

Now, the redefined function f(x) = (x + 4) is continuous for all real numbers. Thus

the discontinuity at x = 4 was removed.

9 Let P(x, y) and Q( x+∆x, f(x+∆x) ) be two points on the graph of y = f(x). The line through these

9 As ∆x 0, the secant line becomes the tangent line to the graph of y = f(x) at the point P(x,

9 decreasing if its graph moves down as x moves to the right

9 if f ′ (x) < 0 to the left of x = c and f ′ (x) > 0 to the right of x = c, f(c) is a relative minimum

If the graph of a continuous function possess a tangent line at a point where its concavity changes from

upward to downward (or vice versa), then the point is a point of inflection.

Solve the equation f ′′(x) = 0 to get the values of the independent variable at which there is a point of

inflection.

If (c, f(c)) is a point of inflection, then either f ′′(c) = 0 or f ′′(c) does not exist.

One can show that the point of inflection is at (200, 320). That is, the graph of R(x) is concave up for

0 < x < 200 and then it is concave down for 200 < x < 400.

The graph has a point of diminishing returns when x = $200. This point is (200, 320)

By contrast, on the interval (200, 400), each additional dollar spent returns less than the previous

VERTICAL ASYMPTOTES

Definition of a vertical asymptote: Let y = f(x) be a function. If f(x) approaches infinity (or

negative infinity) as x approaches c from the right or from the left, then the line x = c is a vertical

asymptote of the graph of f(x).

Another way of saying this is: Suppose f(x) is a function. If the denominator of f(x) is zero for any

value of x = c, then the equation to the vertical asymptote of the graph of f(x) is x = c.

A few examples:

x−3

f ( x) = . The denominator of f(x) becomes zero for x = 0. Therefore, x = 0 is a

x2

vertical asymptote of the graph of f(x).

HORIZONTAL ASYMPTOTES

Definition of a horizontal asymptote: Let y = f(x) be a function. If f(x) approaches a real number

L as x approaches infinity (or negative infinity),

then y = L is a horizontal asymptote of the graph of f(x).

p ( x)

Let f ( x) = be a rational function. Then.

q ( x)

9 y = 0 is a horizontal asymptote of the graph of f(x) if the degree of p(x) is less than the degree of

q(x).

a

9 y= (a and b are the leading coefficient of p(x) and q(x) respectively) is a horizontal asymptote

b

of the graph of f(x) if the degree of p(x) is equal to the degree of q(x).

9 f(x) has no horizontal asymptote if the degree of p(x) is greater than the degree of q(x).

A few examples:

x−3

f ( x) = 2

x

Here p(x) = x – 3, and q(x) = x2. The degree of p(x) is less than the degree of q(x).

Therefore, y = 0 is a horizontal asymptote of the graph of f(x).

x2 − 3

f ( x) =

2x 2

Here p(x) = x2 – 3, and q(x) = 2x2. The degree of p(x) is equal to the degree of q(x).

1

Also, note that a = 1 and b = 2. Therefore, y = is a horizontal asymptote of the

2

graph of f(x).

x2 − 3

f ( x) =

2x

Here p(x) = x2 – 3, and q(x) = 2x. The degree of p(x) is greater than the degree of

q(x). Therefore, there is no horizontal asymptote of the graph of f(x).

Section 3.8

9 The differential of x (denoted by dx ) is any non-zero real number where as the differential of y,

denoted by dy is give as:

dy = f ′(x )dx

9 Change in f(x) that corresponds to a change in x is given by ∆y = f ( x + ∆x ) − f ( x )

9 Note that dy ≈ ∆y
