Area is maximum when A2 is maxima.
A2 = h2(4R2 h2)
f(h) = h2(4R2 h2)
For maxima f'(h) = 0
f'(h) = h2 (2h) + (4R2 h2)2h = 0
h2 + 4R2 h2 = 0
h2 = 2R2

Critical point is the point where f'(x) = 0 or f'(x) does not exist.

## If f'(x) = 0 then x > 3 and

so f'(x) cannot be zero anywhere.
Now, f'(x) does not exist at x = 2
since, f'(2 0) = 1
and f'(2 + 0) = 1
Also, f'(3 0) = 1
f'(3 + 0) = 2(3) 2 = 4
so, f'(x) does not exist at x = 3
Hence, there are two critical points
x = 2 and x = 3

Assertion-Reason Type Questions
1.

STATEMENT-1 : Let f(x) = |x2 1|, x [2, 2] f(2) = f(2) and hence there must be at least one c (2, 2)
so that f (c) = 0.
and
STATEMENT-2 : f (0) = 0, where f(x) is the function of S1.

Statement1 : f (x ) is not differentiable at x = 1 hence
Rolles theorem is not applicable consequently Statement1 is false.

## From graph f'(0), a = 0 i.e., Statement2 is True.

STATEMENT-1 : Let f (x) and g (x) be two decreasing function then f (g(x)) must be an increasing function.

Statement1 : We have f'(x) < 0 and g'(x) < 0
Let h(x) = f[g(x)]
h '( x ) f '(g ( x )).g '( x )

## h '( x ) 0 hence f (g ( x )) is increasing

## Since g (2) g (1) , as g(x) is a decreasing function

f [g (2)] f [g (1)] as f(x) is a decreasing function

STATEMENT-2 : Any monotonic function is a one-one function.

Clearly from graph x3 is one-one.

By monotonic function we mean either it is monotonic
increasing or monotonic decreasing.

15. If the equation x3 3x + k = 0 has two distinct roots is (0, 1), then the value of k is
Sol. Let and such that be the roots of f(x) = x3 3x + k = 0
Then 0 < < < 1 and f() = 0 = f()
Also f(x) is differentiable in (0, 1) and continuous in [0, 1] and f() = 0 = f()
Thus, all the conditions of Rolles theorem are satisfied.
Now, we have to show that a point. c (, ) such that f'(c) = 0
3c2 3c = 0
c = 0, 1. (0, 1)
Thus k =
16. Let 'f' be a real function whose derivative upto third order exist and for same pair a, b R such that a < b,
f (a ) f (a ) f (a )
f (c )
is
log
a b then there exist c (a, b) for which
f (c )
f (b ) f (b ) f (b )

## Sol. Let (x) = (f(x) + f'(x) + f"(x))ex

(x) is differential on (a, b) and continuous on [a, b].
Also,

## (a) f (a) f (a) f (a)

e b a
(b) f (b) f (b) f (b)

(a) = (b)
Thus, Rolles theorem is satisfied
Now, there exists a point c (a, b) such that
'c) = 0
(f'(c)+ f"(c) + f'''(c))ec (f(c) + f'(c) + f''(c))eC = 0
f'(c) + f"(c) + f'''(c) f(c) f'(c) f"(c) = 0
f'''(c) = f(c)

## Let g(x) = xm(x 1)n

g'(x) = mxm1(x 1)n + nxm(x 1)n 1
= xm1(x 1)n1 {mx m + nx} = 0
Now, f'(x) = 0
g'(x) = 0
