will it be where x = 4?

you're given the graph of f ' what does f ' say about f itself ?
StudyGurl14
  • StudyGurl14
critical points are where f ' equals 0

and critical points are possible extrema

F ' ALSO SHOWS SLOPE

sorry caps lock was on

exactly, f ' tells us the slope of the tangent lines of f translation: we can figure out where f is increasing or decreasing based on the graph of f '
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
where is f increasing? where is f decreasing?
StudyGurl14
  • StudyGurl14
f is increasing on intervals [-2,2] amd [4,6]
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
careful, this isn't the graph of f

This is the graph of f ', the derivative of f. So what you need to do is look to see where f ' is negative to figure out where f is decreasing. On the flip side, look where f ' is positive to see where f is increasing |dw:1449364728050:dw| in the drawing, the shaded region represents where f ' is negative ---> f is decreasing

so x = 5 is the min
StudyGurl14
  • StudyGurl14
no wait, that's a local min right? not an absolute
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yes because the graph of f decreases until you hit x = 5. After that x value, it starts to increase again so we have something like this for f itself |dw:1449364986531:dw| one thing to note: the only point we know on f(x) is (3,10). The actual y coordinate of the min of f could be any value really. The min point doesn't necessarily have to be below the x axis
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
it's both local and absolute
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
this region here has f decreasing |dw:1449365189587:dw|

Okay, thank you. You're good with this. :)
StudyGurl14
  • StudyGurl14
I have a couple more. Is that ok?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so we start up high somewhere, then we decrease (passing through (3,10)) until we bottom out at (5,y) where y is unknown then we start to increase again because of this positive region on f ' |dw:1449365251674:dw|
