Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example, suppose f(x)=x^3+6x^2+4x+3 then f'(x)=3x^2+12x+4 f''(x)=6x+12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you have a graph of f, you look at the places on the graph where the concavity is negative (curve opens downward). This will be the places where the second derivative is negative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to see where the first derivative is negative you look to see where the slope of the tangent to the graph points downward as x moves positively..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f'(x) stands for the slope of the tangent line at (x,f(x)). f''(x) stands for the change of the slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I presume you have some graph of a function, and you need to identify where the second derivative of the function is less than 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0suppose f(x)=ax^3+bx^2+cx+d then f'(x)=3ax^2+2bx+c then f''(x)=6ax+2b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If it's the graph of f' then you simply need to see where the tangent lines have negative slope to find where f'' is less than 0.
