    Increasing function

    If k is positive and increasing, for what value of q is the rate of change of k^3 12 times that of k?

    I am a bit confused by the wording of this question. Can someone clarify it for me?

    What's q meant to be? Is this part of a larger question? What you've posted makes no sense to me.

    I do realise that.

    Let me re-phrase the obvious:

    Since the relationship between q and k is not given, the posted question makes no sense.
