Also find the intervals on which g is increasing and those on which g is decreasing. y 5 4 3 2 1 −3 −2 −1 −1 −2 −3 −4 1 2 3 x 80 Relations and Functions (c) We said earlier in the section that it is not good enough to say local extrema exist where a function changes from increasing to decreasing or vice versa. As a previous exercise showed, we could have local extrema when a function is constant so now we need to examine some functions whose graphs do indeed change direction. Consider the functions graphed below. Notice that all four of them change direction at an open circle on the graph. Examine each for local extrema. What is the effect of placing the “dot” on the y -axis above or below the open circle? What could you say if no function value was assigned to x = 0? y y 4 4 3 3 2 2 1 1 −2 −1 −1 i. 1 2 x −2 −1 −1 iii.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
