4 CC2053: Calculus 6 Increasing and Decreasing Functions A function f ( x ) is increasing on an interval a < x < b if f ( x 2 ) > f ( x 1 ) whenever x 2 > x 1 for x 1 , x 2 in the interval. A function is decreasing on a < x < b if f ( x 2 ) < f ( x 1 ) whenever x 2 > x 1 for, x 1 , x 2 in the interval.

12 CC2053: Calculus 6 Increasing and Decreasing Functions Relative Extremum • The graph of the function f ( x ) is said to have a relative maximum at x = c if f ( c ) f ( x ) for all x in the interval a < x < b containing c • The graph of the function f ( x ) is said to have a relative minimum at x = c if f ( c ) f ( x ) for all x in the interval a < x < b containing c • The relative maxima and minima of f are called its relative extremum • A point on a graph where a relative extremum occurs is also called a turning point
