    \[\huge y'=-10x+20\] \[\huge 0=-10x+20\] \[x=2\]

    @burhan101 u don't need calculus to find intervals of increase/decrease. This is a parabola with a negative leading coefficient so it opens down. Using -b/2a we get -b/2a = 2, which is the x-coordinate of the vertex of the parabola. Since it opens down, function is increasing on \(\bf (-\infty,2)\) and decreasing on \(\bf (2,\infty)\)
