    Do you know what the derivative of a 2nd degree function is?

    You know the following I guess: If f is decreasing, then f' is negative (and vice versa). If f is increasing, then f' is positive ( and vv).

    No look at the first graph on the left. To the left of the y-axis, it is decreasing, to the right it is increasing.

    This means, for f' you are looking for a function that is negative on the left side of the y-axis and positive on the right.

    but you can't match a with c , it says to match the left with the right so it has to be a letter with a number

    I mean this (see image) The parabola on the left (2nd degree function) has the straight line on the right as it's derivative.

    Now try #2. See what it does: increasing, decreasing, increasing. So you're looking for a graph that is +, then -, then +.

    Right again! Always decreasing, so looking for a derivative that is always negative...

    Oops, look something went wrong with my last response. Because 5 and 3 behave in the same way, you have to choose the same derivative: 5A

    It goes down, then up, then down, so for f' we have: neg, pos, neg

  57. onegirl

    Yes, it's 6F. I must admit this kind of question can be confusing, because you constantly have to switch from increasing , decreasing to +, -.
