    sketch a graph question

    Sketch a graph for a function f in each of the following cases
    f'(x) and f''(x)>0

    i dont get this question because i dont know what f is. by that i mean if f was an equation i think i would know what to do but it just says sketch f, what is f?
    thanks!

    Draw any function which is increasing and concave up.
    e^x will work.

    That function has no first nor second derivative at x=0.
