Problem 1 (2 pts each, 16 pts total). Write T if true, or F if false (with no explanations
needed, no partial credit).
The function f (x, y) = x2 − y 2 + 1 solves the equation
If ~a · ~b = k~ak k~bk, then ~a and ~b point in the same direction.
The plane containing the point (1, 1, 1) with normal vector −2 has equation
5x − 2y + 4z = 0.
The function f (x, y) = sin xy + cos xy has partial derivative
= x(cos xy − sin xy).
For all continuous functions f ,
Z 2Z y
f (x, y) dx dy =
f (x, y) dy dx.
Let R be the rectangle in R2 with vertices (2, 1), (2, −1), (−2, −1), and (−2, 1).
(x + y 3 ) dA = 0.
n=1 an be an absolutely convergent series. Then the series
n=1 (−1) an
must be convergent.
The integral test can be used to show that the following series converges:
n3 + 1
Problem 2 (4 pts each, 16 pts total). Short answer. No partial credit, so check your work
carefully. Also, it is not necessary to provide explanations of solutions (for these short answer
(b) Match each quantity on the left below with (i), (ii), or (iii) if possible, or state “no match”.
(i) ln a + ln b
(ii) ln a − ln b
eln a−ln b
(ln a)(ln b)
If f is continuous
on [a, b], then A(x) =
f (t) dt = f (x).
f (t) dt is differentiable and A0 (x) = f (x),
This theorem is known as
(d) Use the function f (x, y) = xy and the multivariable chain rule to calculate
Hint: if we let x(t) = sin t and y(t) = cos t, then we want to find ∂f
[(sin t)cos t ].
(Also, you may receive 1 point of credit for providing the relevant tree diagram.)
Problem 3 (13 pts). Let R be the region in the plane bounded by the circle x2 + y 2 = 6 and
below the parabola y = −x2 . Sketch the region R and set up an iterated integral representing
the area of R. (Note: you do not need to evaluate this integral.)
Problem 4 (20 pts). Use the indicated technique to compute the following integrals.
(a) Integration by parts:
(b) Integration by substitution:
x ln x
Problem 5 (15 pts). A sphere of radius 3 given by z = f (x, y) is defined implicitly by the
x2 + y 2 + z 2 = 9.
Find the equation for the tangent plane to the sphere in R3 at the point (1, 2, 2). Box your
Problem 6 (20 pts). Let W be the region in the first octant of R3 bounded by x + y + z = 1
and x + y + 2z = 1.
(a) Provide a triple integral representing the volume of W . Write this expression as an iterated
integral (i.e., choose an order of integration and write down the limits of integration).
(b) Evaluate the integral you set up in part (a).
