    If f'>0, then f is increasing If f'<0, then f is decreasing

    ok then so you know that g' will tell us if g is decreasing or increasing right?

    so find g' given that: \[g(x)=\int\limits_{0}^{x} f(t) dt \] don't look at the picture yet just tell what g' is

    no i'm sorry that isn't correct ok let's look at this... I will rewrite it a little... \[g(x)=F(x)-F(0)\] where F'=f Now differentiate to find g'

    you have to differentiate g(x)=F(x)-F(0) to find g' can you do that?

    It's f'(x)-f'(0)

    I will help you out some more. derivative of g is g' derivative of F is f (this was given above when I said F'=f) derivative of a constant is 0 everything i said in this little post right here will need to be used

    oh....so the derivative of F(x) is f(x). Is that what you mean?

    so do you know F(0) is a constant?

    I think you are thinking of f(0) not F(0) f is given not F

    Anyways F(0) is a constant. Because F is a just a function of x any if you plug in a number for x then you will definitely receive a constant ---------------------------------------------------- example: Say F(x)=cos(x) well F(0) is definitely a constant because F(0) is 1 and 1 never changes (it is and will always remain 1)

    So going back to \[g(x)=\int\limits_{0}^{x} f(t) dt \\ g(x)=F(x)-F(0)\] can you differentiate g now?

    • one month ago
  29. myininaya Group Title

    what that means is you will have to differentiate both sides (not just one side)

    Can you just tell me where it is increasing and concave up...so I'll try to figure it out?

    Try to use what I said earlier... derivative of g is g' derivative of F' is f derivative of a constant is 0 you can do this

    Okay...so you g(x)= F(x)-F(0)

    that means g'(x) = f(x)-0?

    I'm not going to give just the answer. Sorry. But right g'=f so that means the picture given is g'

    and you know if g'>0, then g is increasing and you know if g'<0, then g is decreasing

    where on the picture that is given is g' above the x axis (because that is where g is increasing) and when g' is below the x-axis that is where g is decreasing
