# (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. F ( x ) = x 6 − x

(a)

To determine

To find: On which intervals the function F(x)=x6x is increasing or decreasing.

Explanation

The given function is F(x)=x6x .

Obtain the derivative of F(x) .

F(x)=ddx(x6x)

Apply Product Rule.

F(x)=x(6x)+6x(x)=x126x(1)+6x(1)=x26x+6x=x+2(6x)26x

Simplify further to obtain F(x)

F(x)=x+2(6x)26x=x+122x26x=3x+1226x

Set F(x)=0 and solve for x

(b)

To determine

To find: The local maximum and minimum values of the function F(x)=x6x .

(c)

To determine

To find: The intervals of concavity and the inflection points of the function F(x)=x6x .

(d)

To determine

To sketch: The graph of the function for the above information from part (a) to part (c).
