What steps or reasoning did you use? Your work counts towards your score.
When the graph is above the x-axis it's increasing, when it's below the x-axis it's decreasing. Local
maxima and minima are zeroes in the derivative.

If f '(x) > 0 for 6 < x < 9, then f is increasing on (6, 9).
True
False

What steps or reasoning did you use? Your work counts towards your score.
If the graph is above the x-axis, which it is because f'(x) is greater the 0, then that means that
f(x) is increasing. The statement is true.

Determine whether the statement is true or false.


If f is odd and f is differentiable, then f ' is odd.

True
False

Solution or Explanation
False. If f is odd, then f ' is even.
For example, f(x) = x3 is odd while f '(x) = 3x2 is even.

using the chain rule I arrived to that, but then
[{"args":[["d"],["d","x"]],"name":"\\frac","arity":2,"up":0,"down":1},"f",{"tmpl":
["\\left({","}\\right)"],"args":[["-","x"]],"inline":0,"arity":1},"=",{"args":[["d"],

[["x"]],"inline":0,"arity":1}," \\\\& "," \\\\& "]
[]
That means that -f'(-x)=-f'(x), and when you divide by a negative it become f'(-x)=f'(x) which
makes f'(x) even. So that means the statement is false.

What steps or reasoning did you use? Your work counts towards your score.
The limit of x as x approaches 0 is 0, and the limit of x as x approaches e^0 equals one. 0/1 = 0
not 1. Therefore, the statement is false.

From the graph of f, we see that there are VAs at x = 0 and x = . f is an odd function, so its graph is
symmetric about the origin. From the graph of f', we estimate that f is decreasing on (, 1.42),
increasing on (1.42, 0.41), decreasing on (0.41, 0), decreasing on (0, 0.41), increasing on
(0.41, 1.42), and decreasing on (1.42, ), with local minimum values f(1.42) 7.07 and
f(0.41) 5.09, and local maximum values f(0.41) 5.09 and f(1.42) 7.07. From the graph of f
'', we estimate that f is CU on (, 0.74), CD on (0.74, 0), CU on (0, 0.74), and CD on (0.74,

). There are IPs at about (0.74, 5.82) and (0.74, 5.82).
