Computing Derivatives: What's in a Slope? True or False

1. Let f(x) = e. Then -> f'(x) = 0
2. What is the derivative of f(x) = 5x + 6?

-> f'(x) = 5

3. Which of the following is not a power function? ->


4. For which function f(x) is f'(x) = -3x-4{ ?} -> f(x) = x-3
5. What is the derivative of f(x) = ex?

-> f'(x) = ex(ln x)


6. The slope of the function f(x) = ex is

-> always either 0 or positive.

7. Let f(x) = 6x. Then

-> f'(x) = 6x(ln6)


8. Which function f(x) has the derivative f'(x) = x-1?

-> f(x) = x-2


9. Let f(x) = cos(x). Then

-> f'(x) = cos(x)
