Determine the open intervals on which the function is increasing, decreasing, or constant.

f(x) = 3
f(x) = x^(2/3)
f(x) = -x^(3/4)

  • Pre-Calculus -

    if f' > 0, f is increasing. So,

    f(x)=3
    f' = 0
    f is constant everywhere

    f(x) = x^(2/3)
    f' = 2/3 x^(-1/3)
    f' > 0, so f is increasing everywhere

    f(x) = -x^(3/4)
    f' = -3/4 x^(-1/4)
    f' < 0 so, f is decreasing everywhere


    rather poor examples, since there are no finite open intervals involved
