Unformatted text preview: 33: More About FunctionsIncreasing and Decreasing functions;A function f is increasing on an open interval I if, as x increases, f(x) also increases. It is decreasing if, as x increases, f(x) decreases. It is constant if, as x increases, f(x) remains the same.Local Maximum; Local Minimum: In nontechnical language, a local minimum is a turning point in the graph where f(x) is decreasing on the left of point c and increasing on the right side of a point c. Point c is a local maximum if the graph is increasing on the right and decreasing on the left.Even and Odd Functions: On the graph, even functions are symmetric to the yaxis; that is, for every point (x, y), there is also a point (x, y) on the graph. Odd functions are symmetric to the origin; that is, for every point (x, y), there is also a point (x, y). From equations: A function is even if f(x) = f(x). It is every point (x, y), there is also a point (x, y)....
