The following is the procedure for graphing y = f ( x ): 1 Analyze f ( x ) : Find the x-intercept(s) and y-intercept of f ( x ). 2 Analyze f ( x ) : Find the critical point(s) of f ( x ). Construct a sign chart for f ( x ) and determine the interval(s) where f ( x ) is increasing and decreasing. Find local maxima and minima (if any). 3 Analyze f 00 ( x ) : Construct a sign chart for f 00 ( x ), determine the interval(s) where f ( x ) is concave upward and concave downward....
