Find the derivative of where and ,
Hence show that is a one-one function
I have found the derivative of h(x) to be but am confused on how i could use this to show is one-one
Do you understand what "one to one" means? A function, f, is one to one if and only if f(x)= f(y) implies x= y. If f is increasing, we can use "proof by contradiction": Suppose f(x)= f(y) with . Then either x> y so that f(x)> f(y) or x< y f(x)< f(y), either contradicting f(x)= f(y). The same argument works if f is decreasing.
