  1. I always hate to see homework dumps. I'll do a couple, but till I see some work on your part, I feel no obligation to do all your work.

    #1
    f(x) = cos(x)
    f'(x) = -sin(x)
    at the given point, f'(2) = -sin(2)

    #2
    Recall that
    |x| = x if x >= 0
    |x| = -x if x < 0
    At x=1, x+1 > 0, so |x+2| = x+2
    f'(x) = 1 wherever x+2 >= 0

    Now do a little review and come back with some answers of your own, which we can review.
