Find the intervals in which the function f given by
f
(x) = x2 – 4x + 6 is strictly increasing:
(a) (∞, 2) ∪ (2,∞) (b) (2,∞)
(c) (∞, 2) (d) (∞, 2] ∪ (2,∞)
This question is
inspired from

Example 10
 Chapter 6 Class 12 Application of Derivatives
Question 5 Find the intervals in which the function f given by f (x) = x2 – 4x + 6 is strictly increasing: (a) (−∞, 2) ∪ (2,∞) (b) (2,∞) (c) (−∞, 2) (d) (−∞, 2] ∪ (2,∞)
f(𝑥) = 𝑥2 – 4𝑥 + 6
Calculate f’(𝒙)
𝑓’ (𝑥) = 2𝑥 – 4
Calculate f’(𝒙) = 0
2𝑥 – 4 = 0
2𝑥 = 4
𝑥 = 4/2=2
Hence 𝑥 = 2 divide real line into 2 disjoint intervals.
Plotting points on number line
Hence.
f is strictly increasing in interval (2 , ∞)
So, the correct answer is (b)
