Z
x cos x dx.


 1 if x 6= 0 
2. Let f be defined by f (x) =
. Show that f is integrable on [0, 1].
 0 if x = 0 
3. Define a sequence {an } by setting a1 = 4 and
an+1 =
1
5 − an
for each n ≥ 1.
Show that 0 ≤ an+1 ≤ an ≤ 4 for each n ≥ 1, use this fact to conclude that the sequence
converges and then find its limit.
4. Compute each of the following limits:
lim
x→0
ex − x − 1

lim x sin(1/x).
x→∞
5. Test each of the following series for convergence:

7. Suppose f is a differentiable function such that f 0 (x) = 2x &middot; f (x) for all x ∈ R. Show that

there exists some constant C such that f (x) = Cex for all x ∈ R.
8. Suppose that f is a function with
|f (x) − f (y)| ≤ |x − y|2
for all x, y ∈ R.
Using the limit definition of the derivative, show that f is actually constant.
