Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1derivative is 4x^3 + 3 4x^3 + 3 < 0 for negative gradient x^3 < 3/4 x < (3/4)^(1/3) = approx 0.9 this is greater than 1 so the graph is decreasing over the period 2,1 find value of function atx = 2 and 1 f(2) = (2)^4 + 3(2) + 1 = 11 f(1) = 2 meaning it has crossed the xaxis at most once over the period
