# 33-44(a) Find the intervals of increase or decrease.(b) Find the local maximum and minimum values.(c) Find the intervals of concavity and the inflection points.(d) Use the information from parts ( a ) − ( c ) to sketch the graph. Check your work with a graphing device if you have one. G ( x ) = 5 x 2 / 3 − 2 x 5 / 3

To determine

a)

To find:

The intervals of increase or decrease

Explanation

1) Concept:

Increasing or Decreasing test:

If G'x>0 then f is increasing

If G'x<0 then f is decreasing

2) Given:

Gx=5x23-2x53

3) Formula:

i. Sum and difference rule:

ddxfx±gx=ddxfx±ddx(gx)

ii. Constant multiple rule:

ddxCfx=Cddx(fx)

iii. Power rule:

ddxxn=nxn-1

4) Calculation:

Consider, Gx=5x23-2x53

Differentiate with respect to x,

G'x=ddx5x23-2x53

By using sum and difference rule,

G'x=ddx5x23-ddx2x53

By using constant multiple rule and constant function rule,

G'x=5ddx

To determine

(b)

To find:

Local maximum and local minimum values

To determine

(c)

To find:

Intervals of concavity and the inflection points

To determine

(d)

To sketch:

The graph by using information from part (a) – (c)
