need help with few questions:
1) Find all open intervals on which is decreasing.
this is what i did:
a. fount the derivative:
b. set it equal to zero:
is that all you do? I'm concern for this problem b/c they say to "Find all open intervals".
2) Consider . Find all value(s), c, in the interval [0,1] such that the slope of the tangent line to the graph of f at c is parallel to the secant line through the point (0, f(0)) and (1, f(1)).
i have no idea what to do next...
3) Explain why has a minimum on the interval [1,2] but not on the interval [-1,1].
is it b/c the line is decreasing at interval [1,2]?
thx in advance
