1. For each of the given (input, output) relationships in
Tables One and Two ; answer the

following: Is the relationship a function? Why or why not?

a. A a function of B

b. B a function of A

c. C a function of D

d. D a function of C

For the relationships that are functions; also answer:

i. What is the domain of the function?

ii. What is the range of the function?

2. What is the domain and range for each of the following functions? Show your
work for

de termining the domain when applicable. You may find graphing the function or
using the

calculator table feature for the function to be helpful; especially for
determining the range. If

you do so, include a sketch of the graph (label key points).

4. Suppose you wish to fence in a rectangular pen with 500
square feet of area with the front

and one side cedar fencing at $10 / foot and the back and the other side wire
fencing at $4 /

foot.

a. What is the least cost for such a rectangular pen? Support your conclusion
with a

carefully constructed cost function, a graph of the function with everything
clearly

labeled, with the least cost of the pen clearly marked on the graph and with a
final sketch

of the pen with the cost and the fence dimensions of the pen clearly labeled.

b. Suppose I wish to use the same construction ideas and spend exactly $1420 on
the

fencing material. What are the dimensions now? Use the quadratic formula for
full credit;

show your work for determining the solution ; mark the point(s) on the graph in
part a).

by 50 inch

sheet of cardboard by cutting out corner squares and folding up the edges to
make a box as

we did in class? Construct a volume function and give all details of your
solution.

**Graduate Only:** Be sure you can multiply out the function and then use the
derivative rules

(power, constant multiple, sum) to also compute the derivative of the volume
function.

Describe the behavior of the volume function by comparing it to the derivative
function.
