    Graphing a function given the graph of a derivative but...

    so i'm given the graph of f'(x) without its equation or the equation of f(x) but i need to find:
    - what intervals f(x) is decreasing on
    - what intervals f(x) is increasing on
    - values of x where f(x) has horizontal tangent
    - values of x where f(x) has relative maximum
    - values of x where f(x) has point of inflection

    the graph given decreases until (1,0), increases until max at (6,6), then decreases passing through (9,1)
    HELP!

    Here's a hint, on f'(x) any x-intercept corresponds to a turning point on f(x).
