# Determine whether the statement is true or false. If it is true, explain why. If it is false, explain why or give an example that disproves the statement.If x1 < x2, and f is a decreasing function, then f(x1) > f(x2).

To determine

Whether the statement, if x1<x2 and if f is a decreasing function, then f(x1)>f(x2) is true or false.

Explanation

Recall the definition of decreasing function, “the function y=f(x) is said be an decreasing function on the given interval [a, b] if f(x1)>f(x2)
