1. (40 points) Evaluate the derivative of the function
y(x) = sin(π sin(π sin(πx)))
at x = 0.

2. (40 points) The relation
2x2 + y 2 = 9
determines a curve in the x − y plane (an ellipse).
a) Find the equation of the line which goes through the point (2,-1) on the curve and is perpendicular
to the tangent line to the curve at this point.
b) At what points (x0 , y0 ) does this curve have a horizontal tangent line.

Bonus question (10 points). As you know (sin x)0 = cos x and (cos x)0 = − sin x. Find the
hundredth derivative of
y(x) = sin(2x)
y (100) (x) =?

Useful formulae
Constant multiple rule:
(k f (x))0 = k f 0 (x)
Sum rule:
(f (x) + g(x))0 = f 0 (x) + g 0 (x)
Product rule:
(f (x)g(x))0 = f 0 (x)g(x) + f (x)g 0 (x)
Quotient rule:
Chain rule:
&Atilde;

f 0 (x)g(x) − f (x)g 0 (x)
