## 17Calculus - Calculus 1 Final Exam Practice Problems

##### 17Calculus

This page contains a set of practice problems to help you prepare for your calculus 1 final exam. The problems are arranged by topic with reference pages to direct you to what you need to review if you have trouble with the problems. They are mostly basic and intermediate level problems similar to what you might see on your final exam.
Work as many of these as you have time for. If you are short on time, pick a few from each section to test your skills. Of course, it is better to start early and work most or all of these problems. When you do, you will hone your skills, build confidence and make the final exam easier to work when the time comes.
However, these problems are not a substitute for working your homework problems. These solutions may be more terse and they assume that you have worked the practice problems in each section and that you understand them for the most part.
Enjoy!

 These practice problems are from this excellent YouTube video. The problem numbers in the video solutions may differ from ours since we arrange them by type.

Find the value of $$c$$ that makes $$f(x)$$ continuous using limits.
$$\displaystyle{f(x) = \left\{\begin{array}{ll} 2cx-6 & x \lt 3 \\ x^2 + cx & x \geq 3 \end{array} \right. }$$

Problem Statement

Find the value of $$c$$ that makes $$f(x)$$ continuous using limits.
$$\displaystyle{f(x) = \left\{\begin{array}{ll} 2cx-6 & x \lt 3 \\ x^2 + cx & x \geq 3 \end{array} \right. }$$

$$c = 5$$

Problem Statement

Find the value of $$c$$ that makes $$f(x)$$ continuous using limits.
$$\displaystyle{f(x) = \left\{\begin{array}{ll} 2cx-6 & x \lt 3 \\ x^2 + cx & x \geq 3 \end{array} \right. }$$

Solution

Although he doesn't explicitly write out limits here, you will need to do so on your exam. So you need to make sure to write
$$\displaystyle{ \lim_{x \to 3^-}{f(x)} = \lim_{x \to 3^+}{f(x)} }$$
to show that you understand that this limit will make $$f(x)$$ continuous at all values of $$x$$.
