Soln:

Given function \(f(x) =\{\begin{matrix} 2x + 3 & x \leq 0\\ 3(x + 1) & x > 0 \end{matrix}\)

 

\(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\left [ 2x + 3 \right ] = 2(0) + 3 = 3\)

 

\(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0} 3(x + 1) = 3(0 + 1) = 3\)

 

\(∴ \lim_{x \rightarrow 0} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0} f(x) = 3\)

 

\(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} 3(x + 1) = 3(1 + 1) = 6\)

We observed that \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1^{-}} f(x) \neq \lim_{x \rightarrow 1^{+}} f(x)\)

Hence, \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x)\) doesn’t exist.

Given function \(f(x) = \left\{\begin{matrix} \frac{\left | x \right |}{x}, & x \neq 0 \\ 0, & x = 0 \end{matrix}\right.\)

When \( \left | x \right | = -x \) \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0 ^{-}} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{-}}\left [ \frac{\left | x \right |}{x} \right ]\)

= \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0 \left ( \frac{ -x }{x} \right )}\)

= 1

We observe that \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{-}} f(x) \neq \lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{+}} f(x)\)

Hence, \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0 } f(x) \) doesn’t exist.

 

Q26.

Find \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} f(x), \; where \; f(x) = \left\{\begin{matrix} \frac{x}{\left | x \right |}, & x \neq 0 \\ 0, & x = 0 \end{matrix}\right.\)

Soln:

f(x) = \(\{\begin{matrix} \frac{x}{| x |}, & x \neq 0 \\ 0, & x = 0 \end{matrix}\)

When \(\left | x \right | = -x\) \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{-}}f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{-}}\left [ \frac{x}{\left | x \right |} \right ]\) \( = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\left [ \frac{x}{ – x } \right ]\) \( = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\left ( – 1 \right )\)

We observe that \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{-}} f(x) \neq \lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{+}} f(x)\)

Hence, \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0 } f(x) \) doesn’t exist.

 

Q27.

Find \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 5} f(x), \; where \; f(x) = \left | x \right | – 5\)

Soln:

Given function is \( f(x) = \left | x \right | – 5\)

When \( x > 0, \left | x \right | = x \) \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 5^{-}} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 5^{-}}[\left | x \right | – 5]\)

= \( \lim_{x \rightarrow 5} \left ( x – 5\right )\)

= 5 – 5

= 0

When \( x > 0, \left | x \right | = x \) \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 5^{+}} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 5^{+}}(\left | x \right | – 5)\)

= \( \lim_{x \rightarrow 5} \left ( x – 5\right )\)

= 5 – 5

= 0

\(∴ \lim_{x \rightarrow 5^{-}}f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 5^{+}}f(x) = 0\)

And \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x) = f(1)\) what can be the values of b and a?

Soln:

Given function

\(f(x) = \left\{\begin{matrix} a + bx, & if \; x < 1 \\ 4, & if \; x = 0, \\ b – ax, & if \; x > 1 \end{matrix}\right.\) \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1^{-}} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 1}(a + bx) = a + b\) \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1^{-}} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 1}(b – ax) = b – a \)

f(1) = 4

Given that \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x) = f(1)\).

\(∴ \lim_{x \rightarrow 1^{-}}f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 1^{+}}f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x) = f(1)\)

=> a+ b = 4 and b – a = 4

Solving both the equations, we get a = 0 and b = 4.

Hence, b and a are 4 and 0

 

Q29.

A function \(f(x) = (x – a_{1})(x – a_{2}) . . . . (x – a_{n})\) is define by fixed real numbers a1, a2, . . . . an.

Find \(\lim_{x \rightarrow a_{1}}f(x)\). For some \(a \neq a_{1}, a_{2}, . . . . , a_{n} \; compute \; \lim_{x \rightarrow a_{n}} f(x)\)

Soln:

Given function = \(f(x) = (x – a_{1})(x – a_{2}) . . . (x – a_{n})\) \(\lim_{x \rightarrow a_{1}}f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow a_{1}}[(x – a_{1})(x – a_{2}) . . . (x – a_{n})]\)

 

\(= [\lim_{x \rightarrow a_{1}}(x – a_{1})][\lim_{x \rightarrow a_{1}}(x – a_{2})] . . . [\lim_{x \rightarrow a_{1}}(x – a_{n})]\)

 

\(= \left ( a_{1} – a_{1} \right ) \left ( a_{1} – a_{2} \right ) . . . . (a_{1} – a_{n}) = 0\)

 

\(∴ \lim_{x \rightarrow a_{1}]}f(x) = 0\)

 

Now, \(\lim_{x \rightarrow a_{1}]}f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow a}[\left (x – a_{1} \right )\left ( x – a_{2} \right ) . . . \left ( x – a_{n} \right )]\)

 

= \(= \lim_{x \rightarrow a}[ x – a_{1} ]  [ x – a_{2}] . . . [x – a_{n}]\)

 

\(( a_{1} – a_{1}) ( a_{1} – a_{2} ) . . . . (a_{1} – a_{n})\) \( ∴ \lim_{x \rightarrow a} f(x) =( a_{1} – a_{1})( a_{1} – a_{2}) . . . . (a_{1} – a_{n}) \)

 

Q30.

If \(f(x) = \left\{\begin{matrix} \left | x \right | + 1, & x \leq 0\\ 0, & x = 0 \\ \left | x \right | – 1, & x > 0 \end{matrix}\right.\)

When a = 0

\(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{-} f(x)} = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{-}}\left ( \left | x \right | + 1 \right )\) \(= \lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\left ( – x + 1 \right )\)   [if x < 0, |x| = -x]

= -0 + 1

= 1

\(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{+} f(x)} = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{+}}\left ( \left | x \right | – 1 \right )\) \(= \lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\left ( x – 1 \right )\)   [if x > 0, |x| = x]

= 0 – 1

= -1

We have, \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{-}} f(x) \neq \lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{+}} f(x)\) \(∴ \lim_{x \rightarrow 0} f(x)\) doesn’t exist.

When a < 0

\(\lim_{x \rightarrow a^{-}}f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow a^{-}}(\left | x \right | + 1)\) \(= \lim_{x \rightarrow a}(- x + 1) \; \; \; \; [ x < a < 0 \Rightarrow \left | x \right | = – x ]\)

= -a + 1

\(\lim_{x \rightarrow a^{+}}f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow a^{+}}(\left | x \right | + 1)\) \(= \lim_{x \rightarrow a}(- x + 1) \; \; \; \; [ x < a < 0 \Rightarrow \left | x \right | = – x ]\)

= – a + 1

\(∴ \lim_{x \rightarrow a^{-} } = \lim_{x \rightarrow a^{+} } = – a + 1\)

Hence, at x = a limit of f(x) exist, where a > 0

Thus, \(\lim_{x \rightarrow a} f(x) \; exist \; for \; all \; a \neq 0\)

 

Q31.

Evaluate \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x)\)

If f(x) satisfies, \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1} \frac{f(x) – 2}{x^{2} – 1} = \pi\)

Soln:

\(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1} \frac{f(x) – 2}{x^{2} – 1} = \pi\) \( \Rightarrow \frac{\lim_{x \rightarrow 1} \left ( f(x) – 2 \right )}{ \lim_{x \rightarrow 1}  \left ( x^{2} – 1 \right )} = \pi\) \(\Rightarrow \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} (f(x) – 2) = \pi \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} (x^{2} – 1)\) \(\Rightarrow \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} (f(x) – 2) = \pi (1^{2} – 1)\) \(\Rightarrow \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} (f(x) – 2) = 0 \) \(\Rightarrow \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x) – \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} 2 = 0 \) \(\Rightarrow \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x) – 2 = 0 \) \(∴ \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x) = 2\)

 

Q32.

If \(f(x) = \left\{\begin{matrix} ax^{2} + b, & x < 0 \\ bx + a, & 0 \leq x \leq 1 \\ bx^{3} + a & x > 1 \end{matrix}\right.\)

For what values of a and b does \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} f(x) \; and \; \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x)\) exist?

 

Soln:

Given function

\(f(x) = \left\{\begin{matrix} ax^{2} + b, & x < 0 \\ bx + a, & 0 \leq x \leq 1 \\ bx^{3} + a & x > 1 \end{matrix}\right.\) \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{-} f(x)} = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(ax^{2} + b)\)

= a(0)2 + b

= b

\(\lim_{x \rightarrow 0^{+}} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(bx + a)\)

= b(1) + a

= a + b

\(∴ \lim_{x \rightarrow 1^{-}} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 1^{+}} f(x) = \lim_{x \rightarrow 1} f(x)\)

Thus, for integral values of n and m \(\lim_{x \rightarrow 1}f(x)\) exist.

 

 

Exercise-13.2


Q1. Find derivative for x2 – 2 at x = 10

 

Soln:

Let f(x) = x2 – 2

Accordingly,

\(f'(10) = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac {f(10 + h) – f(10)}{h}\)

 

\(= \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac {[(10 + h)^{2} – 2] – (10^{2} – 2)}{h}\)

 

\(= \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac {10^{2} + 2. 10. h + h^{2} – 2 – 10^{2} + 2}{h}\)

 

\(= \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac {20h + h^{2}}{h} \)

 

\(= \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} (20 + h) = (20 + 0) = 0 \)

 

Hence, derivative for x2 – 2 at x = 10 is 20

 

 

Q2. Find derivative

\( = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac{99(100 + h) – 99(100)}{h}\)

 

\( = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac{99 \times 100 + 99h – 99 \times 100}{h}\)

 

\( = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac{ 99h }{h}\)

 

\( = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} (99h) = 99 \)

 

Hence, derivative for 99x at x = 100 is 99

 

 

Q3. Find derivative

\(= \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac{(1 + h) – 1}{h}\)

 

\(= \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac{h}{h}\)

 

\(= \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} (1)\)

 

= 1

Hence, derivative for x at x = 1 is 1

\(= \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{(hx + hx + h^{2} – 2h -h )} {h}\)

 

\(= \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}\frac{( 2hx + h^{2} – 3h )} {h}\)

\( = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac{\frac{1}{(x + h)^{2}} – \frac{1}{x^{2}}}{h}\)

 

\( = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}  \frac{1}{h} \left [\frac{ x^{2} – (x + h )^{2}}{x^{2} (x + h )^{2}}\right ]\)

 

\( = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0}  \frac{1}{h} \left [\frac{ x^{2} – x^{2} – h^{2} – 2hx}{x^{2} (x + h )^{2}}\right ]\)

 

\( = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac{1}{h} \left [\frac{ – h^{2} – 2hx}{x^{2} (x + h )^{2}}\right ]\)

 

\( = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \left [\frac{ – h – 2hx}{x^{2} (x + h )^{2}}\right ]\)

 

\(\frac{0 – 2x}{x^{2}(x + 0)^{2}} = \frac{-2}{x^{3}}\)

\( = \lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac {1}{h} \left [ \frac{\left ( x – 1 \right ) \left ( x+ h + 1 \right ) – \left ( x + 1 \right ) \left ( x + h – 1 \right )}{\left ( x – 1 \right ) \left ( x+ h – 1 \right )} \right ]\)

Q5. Prove \(f'(1) = 100 f'(0)\)

For the function \(f(x) = \frac{x^{100}}{100} + \frac{x^{99}}{99} + … + \frac{x^{2}}{2} + x + 1\)

 

Soln:

Given function

\(f(x) = \frac{x^{100}}{100} + \frac{x^{99}}{99} + … + \frac{x^{2}}{2} + x + 1\)

 

\(\frac{d}{dx} f(x) = \frac{d}{dx}\left [ \frac{x^{100}}{100} + \frac{x^{99}}{99} + … + \frac{x^{2}}{2} + x + 1 \right ]\)

 

\(\frac{d}{dx} f(x) = \frac{d}{dx} \left ( \frac{x^{100}}{100} \right ) + \frac{d}{dx}\left ( \frac{x^{99}}{99} \right ) + … + \frac{d}{dx}\left ( \frac{x^{2}}{2} \right ) + \frac{d}{dx}\left ( x \right )+ \frac{d}{dx}\left ( 1 \right )\)

 

Using theorem \(\frac{d}{dx} \left ( x^{n} \right ) = n x^{n – 1}, \) we get

 

\(\frac{d}{dx} f(x) = \frac{100x^{99}}{100} + \frac{99x^{98}}{99} + . . . . + \frac{2x}{2} + 1 + 0\)

 

\(= x^{99} + x^{98} + …. + x + 1\)

 

∴ \(\frac{d}{dx} f(x) = x^{99} + x^{98} + …. + x + 1\)

 

At x = 0

 

f'(0) = 1

 

At x = 1,

 

f'(1) = 199 + 198 + . . . . + 1 + 1 = [1 + 1 +…… + 1 +1 ]100 terms = 1 x 100 = 100

 

Hence,  f’(1) = 100 x f1 (0)

Using \(\frac{d}{dx}x^{n} = nx^{n -1}\), we have

 

\(f'(x) = nx^{n – 1} + a(n – 1)x^{n – 2} + a^{2} (n – 2)x^{n -3} + … + a^{ n – 1} + a^{n}(0)\)

\(\Rightarrow f(x) = x^{2} – (m + n) x + mn\)

 

\(f'(x) = \frac{d}{dx}(x^{2} – (m + n)x + mn)\)

 

\(= \frac{d}{dx}(x^{2}) – (m + n) \frac{d}{dx}(x) + \frac{d}{dx}(mn)\)

 

Using \(= \frac{d}{dx}(x^{n}) = nx^{n – 1}\), we get

 

\(f'(x) = 2x -(m + n) + 0 = 2x – m – n\)

 

(ii) Let f(x) = (ax2 + b)2

 

\(\Rightarrow f(x) = a^{2}x^{2} + 2abx + b^{2}\)

 

\(f'(x) = \frac{d}{dx} (a^{2}x^{4} + 2abx^{2} + b^{2}) = a^{2}\frac{d}{dx}(x^{4}) + 2ab\frac{d}{dx}(x^{2}) + \frac{d}{dx}(b^{2})\)

 

Using \(\frac{d}{dx}x^{n} = nx^{n – 1}\), we have

 

\(f’\left ( x \right ) = a ^{2}(4x^{3}) + 2ab (2x) + b^{2}(0)\)

 

= 4a2x3 + 4abx

 

= 4ax(ax2 + b)

 

(iii) Let \(f(x) = \frac{(x – a)}{(x – b)}\)

\(f'(x) = \frac {(x – b)\frac{d}{dx}(x – a) – (x – a)\frac{d}{dx}(x- b)}{(x – b)^{2}}\)

 

\(= \frac {(x – b)(1) – (x – a)(1)}{(x – b)^{2}}\)

 

\(= \frac {x – b – x + a}{(x – b)^{2}}\)

 

\(= \frac { a – b }{(x – b)^{2}}\)

 

 

Q8. If a is constant find derivative of \(\frac {x^{n} – a^{n}}{x – a}\)

\(\Rightarrow f'(x) = \frac{d}{dx}\left ( \frac {x^{n} – a^{n}}{x – a} \right )\)

 

By Question rule

\(\Rightarrow f'(x) = \frac{(x – a) \frac{d}{dx}(x^{n} – a^{n}) – (x^{n} – a^{n})\frac{d}{dx}(x – a)}{(x – a)^{2}}\)

 

\(= \frac{(x -a)(nx^{n – 1} – 0) – (x^{n} – a^{n})}{(x – a)^{2}}\)
