What are the critical points and where is P(x) increasing and decreasing?

**Steve**, Sunday, November 10, 2013 at 8:21pmcritical points are where P'=0 or is undefined.

P' = 12/(x-1)^2

Since P' is always positive, P is always increasing

P'=0 never, so there are no min/max

P' is undefined at x=1, the vertical asymptote.
