    basic calc questions

    Hi, I've got had 28 questions to do for homework over the weekend (yup, my maths teacher is the devil himself), I've done most of it but there's a few questions that I can't for the life of me get.

    Was just wondering if anyone could have a look at some of these and see if they can help out, I'm not asking for anyone to do all of it, just maybe if you can help out on a question or two. Most of you will find it very easy anyway.

    Here you go

    Thank you very much, any help whatsoever is very much appreciated.

    To 15 a) Plug in x=-2 into the equation of the function. Then b = f(-2).

    Keep in mind that 3(-2)^3 = -24 and that -(-2)^2 = -4. You'll find that your calculated value of b must be wrong.

    To 15 b) The function f is increasing in P if the gradient of f in P is positive. Therefore determine the first derivation of f and plug in x = -2. If f'(-2) > 0 then the statement is true.


    EDIT: Could you please indicate which of the questions are not clear to you?
