Determine intervals on which functions are increasing, constant, or decreasing, and determine maxima and minima of functions. Determine the average rate of change of a function. As x increases, f(x) increases

As x increases, f(x) decreases As x increases, f(x) stays the same Analyze Increasing and Decreasing Behavior A. Use the graph of the function f (x) = x 2 4 to estimate intervals to the nearest 0.5 unit on which

the function is increasing, decreasing, or constant. Support the answer numerically. Analyze Increasing and Decreasing Behavior Analyze Graphically From the graph, we can estimate that f is decreasing on and increasing on

. Support Numerically (for demonstration) Create a table using x-values in each interval. The table shows that as x increases from negative values to 0, f (x) decreases; as x increases from 0 to positive values, f (x) increases. This supports the conjecture.

It appears that f (x) has a relative minimum at x = 1 and a relative maximum at x = 2. It also appears that so we conjecture that this function has no absolute extrema. Answer: To the nearest 0.5 unit, there is a relative

minimum at x = 1 and a relative maximum at x = 2. There are no absolute extrema Use a Graphing Calculator to Approximate Extrema GRAPHING CALCULATOR Approximate to the nearest hundredth the relative or absolute extrema
