f(x) = xe^-x

at the point where x = 0. What does this tell you about the behavior of the graph when x = 0?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 6:47pmfirst of all , when x = 0 , f(0) = 0

so the point is (0,0)

f'(x) = x(-e^-x) + e^-x

when x = 0

f'(0) = 0 + 1 = 1

equation of tangent : y = x

at (0,0) the function is increasing
