  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.

2. The limit of f as x approaches c from the right

46. The integral of a rate of change is called the total change: ?(from a to b) F'(x)dx = F(b)-F(a) -find anti-derivatives
