Choose the statement that is true for the graph f(x) =x^312x.
Answer: f(x) decreases for x >2
2) Which type of critical point, if any, is present in the graph of f(x)=(x4)^5+1
Answer: none

1) df/dx = 3x^2 12 = 2(x+2)(x2)
There are critical points (where the derivative is zero) at x = +2 and 2. x=2 is a relative minimum. f(x) increases (when x increases) for x > +2 and decreases for
2 < x < 2
2) That equation has an absolute minimum at x = 4.
