Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok 1st derivative: If f'(x) is positive, f(x) is increasing. if f'(x) is negative, f(x) is decreasing. If f''(x) is positive, f(x) is concave up If f''(x) is negative, f(x) is concave down When f'(x) = 0, it can be either a min or max. If it goes from increasing to decreasing (+> ) then it is concave down and a max. If it goes from decreasing to increasing, then it is concave up and a min.
