**Math Series 4**

1. Find the first three terms of the Taylor series for f(x) = cos(5x) at x = 0.

- 1 + x - 25 x^2 /2
- 1 - 25x/2 + x^2
- 1 - 25 x^2 /2
- 1 - 25x/2

**Answer:**C

**Solution:**

**Taylor Series:**

$$ f(x) = \sum_{k=0}^\infty \frac{(x - x_0)^k}{k!} f^k (x_0) $$ $$\begin{align} x_0 & - \text{ initial guess} \\ f^k & - \text{ kth derivative of $f(x)$ at $X = X_0$} \\ \end{align}$$

_{0}= 0, $$\begin{align} f(x) & = cos(5x) \to f(0) = 1 \\ f'(x) & = -5 \sin (5x) \to f'(0) = 0 \\ f"(x) & = -25 \cos (5x) \to f"(0) = -25 \\ \end{align}$$ $$\begin{align} f(x) & = \frac{(x-0)^0}{0!} \cdot 1 + \frac{(x-0)^1}{1!} \cdot 0 + \frac{(x-0)^2}{2!} \cdot (-25) \\ & = 1 - \frac{25}{2}x^2. \end{align}$$

- 8/7
- 8/5

**Answer:**D

**Solution:**

**Newton-Raphson Method**

$$ X_{n+1} = X_n - \frac{Y_n}{Y'_n} $$

_{0}= 2, $$\begin{align} X_{n+1} & = X_n - \frac{X_n^3 - 2 X_n}{3X_n^2 - 2} \\ X_1 & = (2) - \frac{2^3 - 2(2)}{3(2)^2 - 2} \\ & = \frac{8}{5} \\ \end{align}$$

4. Divide 24 into three parts such that the continued product of the first part, the square of the second part, and the cube of the third part is maximum.

- x = 12, y = 8, z = 4
- x = 14, y = 6, z = 4
- x = 10, y = 8, z = 6
- x = 16, y = 6, z = 2

**Answer:**A

**Solution:**

x, y, z as three parts of 24: $$ x + y + z = 24 \text{ (Eq. 1)}$$ Product, $$P = zy^2x^3 \text{ (maximum)}$$

Substuting Eq. 1 to P, $$P = (24-x-y)y^2x^3$$

If the equation of the quantity with unknown max. or min. value have more than two variables, get the partial derivative and equate to zero.

5. What is the integrating factor of the differential equation (1 + x^2)dy/dx + 2xy = cos x ?

- 1 + x
^{2} - 1/(1+x
^{2}) - log (1+x
^{2}) - log (x
^{2})

**Answer:**A

**Solution:**

**1st Order Linear Differential Equation**$$ \frac {dy}{dx} + P(x)y = Q(x) $$ $$ I.F. = e^{\int Pdx}$$

**Bernoulli's Differential Equation**$$ \frac {dy}{dx} + P(x)y = Q(x)y^n $$ $$ I.F. = e^{(1-n) \int Pdx}, n \neq 0.1$$

**Non-exact Differential Equation**$$ M(x,y)dx + N (x,y)dy = 0, \frac{\partial M}{\partial y} \neq \frac{\partial N}{\partial x} $$ $$ I.F. = e^{\int Pdx}$$ $$ P = \frac{ \frac{\partial M}{\partial y} - \frac{\partial N}{\partial x} }{N}$$

6. The singular point of the differential equation (1-x

^{2}) d^{2}y/dx^{2}- 2x dy/dx + n(n+1)y = 0 is _____.- x = 0
- x = ±1
- x = 1
- x = 2

**Answer:**B

**Solution:**

To get the singular point of a D.E., let the term with the highest derivative equal to zero.

From the given, $ (1-x^2) \frac{d^2y}{dx^2} - 2x \frac{dy}{dx} + n (n+1)y = 0$ the term with the highest derivative:
$$\begin{align}
(1-x^2) \frac{d^2y}{dx^2} & = 0 \\
1 - x^2 & = 0 \\
x^2 & = 1 \\
x & = \pm 1 \\
\end{align}$$
**Singular Point**is the maximum or minimum point and a critical point of 2nd degree D.E. and higher.7. y = e

^{x}is a part of C.F. of differential equation d^{2}y/dx^{2}+ P dy/dx + Qy = 0 if ______.- 1 + P + Q = 0
- P + Qx = 0
- 1 - P + Q = 0
- P - Qx = 0

**Answer:**A

**Solution:**

A

From the given, the auxiliary equation is:
$$\begin{align}
\frac{d^2 y}{dx^2} + P \frac{dy}{dx} + Qy & = 0 \\
m^2 + P m^1 + Q m^0 & = 0 \\
m^2 + P m + Q & = 0 \\
\end{align}$$
As $y = e^x$ is part of the solution, using Case 1,
$$\begin{align}
e^x & = C_1 e^{mx}\\
x & = m x \\
m & = 1\\
\end{align}$$
Substiuting m,
$$\begin{align}
m^2 + P m + Q & = 0 \\
(1)^2 + P(1) + Q & = 0 \\
1 + P + Q & = 0\\
\end{align}$$
**complementary function**is the general solution of homogenous, linear differential equation. Solving the auxiliary equation, gives the value of root m which is needed to find the complementary function. There are three possible complementary solutions (depending on the roots of the auxiliary function):- Case 1: m are real and distinct ($b^2 > 4ac$) $$ y = C_1 e^{m_1 x} + C_2 e^{m_2 x} + ... $$
- Case 2: m are real and equal ($b^2 = 4ac$) $$ y = C_1 e^{m_1 x} + C_2 x e^{m_2 x} $$
- Case 3: m is complex, m = a + bi ($b^2 < 4ac$) $$ y = e^{ax} ( C_1 \cos bx + C_2 \sin bx ) $$

**Answer:**A

**Solution:**

$$\begin{align}
V_{(tetrahedron)} & = V_{(pyramid)} \\

- 2 log 2
- 8 log 2
- 4 log 2
- 16 log 2

**Answer:**B

**Solution:**

$$\begin{align}
Area & =\int_{Y_1}^{Y_2}(X_R - X_L) dy \\
& = \int_1^4(\frac{4}{y}-0) dy \\
& = 8 \ln 2 \\
\end{align}$$

10. If the base radius and height of a cone are measured as 4 and 8 with a possible error of 0.04 and 0.08 inches, respectively, calculate the percentage of error in calculating the volume of the cone.

- 1%
- 3%
- 2%
- 4%

**Answer:**B

**Solution:**

$$\begin{align}
V_(cone) & = \frac{1}{3}Bh \\
& = \frac{1}{3} \pi r^2 h \\
\end{align}$$
initial volume: r = 4, h = 8,
$$\begin{align}
V_i & = \frac{1}{3} \pi (4)^2 (8) \\
& = \frac{128}{3} \pi \\
\end{align}$$
final volume: r = 4 + 0.04, h = 8 + 0.08,
$$\begin{align}
V_f & = \frac{1}{3} \pi (4+0.04)^2 (8+0.08) \\
& = \frac{2060602}{46875} \pi \\
\end{align}$$
$$\begin{align}
\text{% change} & = \frac{V_f - V_i}{V_i} \times 100 \\
& = 3 \% \\
\end{align}$$
