increasing and decreasing intervals

posted by .

Have to find the intervals on which
f(x) = 4 - sqrt(x+2) is increasing. Also the intervals on which the function is decreasing.

TIA

Find the derivative of f(x). When the derivative is positive, the function increases as x increases. When the derivative is negative, the function decreases as x increases.
