  1. Let
    g(x) = 2- x
    3 + 4x
    and h(x) =7
    x2
    1. Find (g o h)(x) (don't forget to simplify).

    1. Find the domain of the function k defined by k (t) = (5 - t)1/2 + ln (t + 3) + 3t-2
    2. The graph of a function h is created by shifting the graph of y = 2x to the right 5 units, then reflecting it in the x-axis, and then shifting it up 10 units. Draw the graph of h and find h(x). Show and label with its intercept or equation any asymptote.


  2. Draw and name the graph of each of the following equations. On your graph label with their coordinates all vertices and intercepts. Label any asymptote with its equation. Indicate clearly the scale on all axes.
    1. x + 2y2 = 0

  3. Solve each of the following equations for x (exact values):

    1. Write without logarithms and negative exponents: log4 (cube-root of 16) + e-3 ln x
    2. Use the properties of logarithms to simplify the following expression so that the result does not contain logarithms of products, quotients or powers. Assume x > 0.
      ln x2 (x + 1)1/2
      (x2 + 2x + 1)1/2

    2. Use a table of signs to solve the inequality
      (x - 3)2
      (x + 4)(12 - 3x)
      > 0
      .

      2 sin t cos t
      can be simplified to a multiple of cot 2t.
    2. Find all solutions for x (exact values in radians): 2 cos 3x sin x + 31/2 cos 3x = 0


  7. Joel wants to determine the height of a hot air balloon that is sitting on the ground. Using a surveyor's transit that is 5 feet above the ground he stands at a point A and measures the angle of elevation of the top of the balloon as 16.3. He then walks 30 feet straight toward the balloon to a point B and again using the transit measures the angle of elevation of the top of the balloon as 18.5. Draw a picture illustrating this situation, marking clearly all known angles and distances and any variable(s) used in solving the problem. State clearly any equation(s) used (there must be at least one). Then find the height of the balloon (to the nearest foot). Give a complete answer (The height of the balloon is ...).
