    Inflection points and Graph

    Describe the behavior of the following graph, at each of the five points labeled on the curve, by selecting all of the terms that apply from the lists below.



    Point A:
    I know

    f(x) is increasingthe slope of f(x) is decreasingf(x) is concave downwards

    For the rest of the points I am lost
    Our choices are:
    f(x) is increasing
    f(x) is decreasing the slope of f(x) is increasing the slope of f(x) is decreasing f(x) has a relative minimum f(x) has a relative maximum f(x) has an inflection point f(x) is concave upwards f(x) is concave downwards
    We are supposed to lable what goes with the other points.
    Point B
    PointC
    Point D
    Point E

    I think B and D have increasing slopes and E looks like a relative max.

    A has an increasing slope

    B is an inflection point, and has negative slope because it is on a part of the curve going from top left to bottom right

    C has negative slope

    D is an inflection point

    E is a relative max
