***determine the intervals over which the function is increasing, decreasing, or constant***

32. f(x)=x^2-4x

33. f(x)=√x^2-1 (that's square root of x^2-1)

thank you so much for the help =)

**MathMate**, Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 9:18pmCalculate f'(x).

For increasing, find the interval on which f'(x)≥0, and for decreasing, find interval on which f'(x)≤0.

For example,

f(x)=x²

f'(x)=2x

f'(x)≥0 when x≥0, so

f(x) is increasing when x∈ [0,∞).

For decreasing, you'd go through the same process for f'(x)≤0.
