Solutions

Chapter 2.3, Problem 20E

a.

To determine

To find: where f is increasing.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 20E

f is increasing on the interval [-2,3] .

Explanation of Solution

Given information: the graph provided in the question,

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 2.3, Problem 20E , additional homework tip  1

From the provided information, consider,

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 2.3, Problem 20E , additional homework tip  2

As f increases the height if the function f ( x ) also increases, thus, y-values of the points on the graph increase as the x-values increase. In the graph provided, f is increasing on the interval [-2,3]

Hence, f is increasing on the interval [-2,3] .

b.

To determine

To find: where f is decreasing.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 20E

f is decreasing on the intervals [1,-2] and [3,0].

Explanation of Solution

Given information: the graph provided in the question,

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 2.3, Problem 20E , additional homework tip  3

From the provided information, consider,

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 2.3, Problem 20E , additional homework tip  4

As f decreases, the height if the function f ( x ) also decreases, thus, y-values of the points on the graph decrease as the x-values increase. In the graph provided, f is decreasing on the intervals [1,-2] and [3,0].

Hence, f is decreasing on the intervals [1,-2] and [3,0].
