Suggested Homework Problems
Extended Mean Value Theorem and L'Hospital's Rule
Note: These are the solutions for Midterm I that was given last fall.
The practice exam differs from this solution set in a few cases, particularly
problem 3. Limits of functions have been replaced by limits of sequences.
Suggested review problems for Chapter 5: Section 5.10, problems 1, 6, 10, 11, 13.
