**To find:**Themeaning of the statement “The cost of living continues to rise, but at a slower rate. In terms of a function and its derivatives”.

Expert Solution

The meaning of the statement is if the function is rises then the first derivative is positive, but it is rising at a slower rate then, the second derivative is negative.

**Given information:**

The given statement is “The cost of living continues to rise, but at a slower rate. In terms of a function and its derivatives”.

**Calculation:**

The meaning of the statement, if the function is rises then the first derivative is positive, but it is rising at a slower rate then the second derivative is negative.

Therefore, the meaning of the statement is if the function is rises then the first derivative is positive, but it is rising at a slower rate then, the second derivative is negative.
