I'm trying to finish up my pre-cal homework and I am stuck on 2 problems...
***determine the intervals over which the function is increasing, decreasing, or constant***
33. f(x)=√x^2-1 (that's square root of x^2-1)
thank you so much for the help =)
For increasing, find the interval on which f'(x)≥0, and for decreasing, find interval on which f'(x)≤0.
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.
