  6. How do you typeset

\[ \left.\frac{\partial^2 f}{\partial x^2}\right|_{x=0} \]

in LaTeX?

  1. Compute

\[ \int_{-1}^{+1} x^2 \, dx \]

  1. A company is studying the pricing of a product. The expected number of people \(n(p)\) that would but the product is linearly decreasing with the product price p. If the price is \(p_0\), then nobody would buy it.
