### Eureka Math Precalculus Module 4 Lesson 12 Exercise Answer Key

Opening Exercise

Use the graphs of the sine, cosine, and tangent functions to answer each of the following questions.

a. State the domain of each function.

Answer:

The domain of the sine and cosine functions is the set of all real numbers. The domain of the tangent function is the set of all real numbers x≠\(\frac{\pi}{2}\) + kπ for all integers k.

b. Would the inverse of the sine, cosine, or tangent functions also be functions? Explain.

Answer:

None of these functions are invertible. Multiple elements of the domain are paired with a single range element. When the domain and range are exchanged to form the inverse, the result does not satisfy the definition of a function.

c. For each function, select a suitable domain that will make the function invertible.

Answer:

Answers will vary, so share a variety of responses. Any answer is suitable as long as the restricted domain leaves an interval of the graph that is either always increasing or always decreasing.

Sample response:

y = sin (x), D:[0, \(\frac{\pi}{2}\)] y = cos (x), D:[0, π] y = tan(x), D:[0, \(\frac{\pi}{2}\)]

Exercise 7.

Exercise 8.

Many animal populations fluctuate periodically. Suppose that a wolf population over an 8-year period is given by the function W(t) = 800 sin(\(\frac{\pi}{4}\) t) + 2200, where t represents the number of years since the initial population counts were made.

a. Find the time(s) on the interval 0 ≤ t ≤ 8 such that the wolf population equals 2, 500.

Answer:

t = 0.489, 3.511

The wolf population equals 2, 500 after approximately 0.5 years and again after 3.5 years.

b. On what time interval during the 8-year period is the population below 2, 000?

Answer:

W(t) = 2000 at t = 4.332 and 7.678

The wolf population is below 2, 000 on the time interval (4.332, 7.678).

c. Why would an animal population be an example of a periodic phenomenon?

Answer:

An animal population might increase while their food source is plentiful. Then, when the population becomes too large, there is less food and the population begins to decrease. At a certain point, there are few enough animals that there is plenty of food for the entire population at which point the population begins to increase again.

Answer:

Question 3.

Let the velocity v in miles per second of a particle in a particle accelerator after t seconds be modeled by the function v = tan(\(\frac{\pi t}{6000}-\frac{\pi}{2}\)) on an unknown domain.

a. What is the t-value of the first vertical asymptote to the right of the y-axis?

Answer:

t = 6000

b. If the particle accelerates to 99% of the speed of light before stopping, then what is the domain?

Answer:

Note: c ≈ 186, 000. Round your solution to the ten-thousandths place.

0.99 ⋅ 186 000 = 184 140

184 140 = tan(\(\frac{\pi t}{6000}-\frac{\pi}{2}\))

tan^{-1}(184 140) = \(\frac{\pi t}{6000}-\frac{\pi}{2}\)

\(\frac{6000}{\pi}\) ⋅ (tan^{-1}(184 140) + \(\frac{\pi}{2}\)) = t

t ≈ 5999.9896

So the domain is 0 < t ≤ 5999.9896.

c. How close does the domain get to the vertical asymptote of the function?

Answer:

Very close. They are only different at the hundredths place.

d. How long does it take for the particle to reach the velocity of Earth around the sun (about 18.5 miles per second)?

Answer:

18.5 = tan(\(\frac{\pi t}{6000}-\frac{\pi}{2}\))

tan^{-1}(18.5) = \(\frac{\pi t}{6000}-\frac{\pi}{2}\)

\(\frac{6000}{\pi}\) ⋅ (tan^{-1}(18.5) + \(\frac{\pi}{2}\)) = t

t ≈ 5896.864

It takes approximately 5, 896.864 seconds to reach the velocity of Earth around the sun.

e. What does it imply that v is negative up until t = 3000?

Answer:

The particle is traveling in the opposite direction.
