2 Barnett/Ziegler/Byleen Business Calculus 12e Objectives for Section 5.4 Curve Sketching Techniques The student will modify his/her graphing strategy by including information about asymptotes. The student will be able to solve problems involving modeling average cost.
3 Barnett/Ziegler/Byleen Business Calculus 12e Modifying the Graphing Strategy When we summarized the graphing strategy in a previous section, we omitted one very important topic: asymptotes . Review of Asymptotes is needed.

4 Partition Numbers and Critical Values A partition number for the sign chart is a place where the derivative could change sign. This can only happen: - at vertical asymptotes: where f itself is not defined - at critical values - where f is not defined - where f is zero You must check the sign of the critical values on both sides of the critical points to see if the derivative changes signs.
