Question 17 The interval on which the function f(π‘₯) = 2π‘₯3 + 9π‘₯2 + 12π‘₯ - 1 is decreasing is: (A) [βˆ’1,∞) (B) [–2, –1] (C) (βˆ’βˆž,βˆ’2] (D) [–1, 1] f(π‘₯) = 2π‘₯3 + 9π‘₯2 + 12π‘₯ - 1 Calculating f’(𝒙) f’(π‘₯) = 6π‘₯2 +18π‘₯ + 12 - 0 f’(π‘₯) = 6(π‘₯2+3π‘₯+2) f’(π‘₯) = 6(π‘₯2+2π‘₯+π‘₯+2) f’(π‘₯) = 6(π‘₯(π‘₯+2)+1(π‘₯+2)) f’(𝒙) = 6(𝒙+𝟏) (𝒙+𝟐) Putting f’(𝒙) = 0 6(π‘₯+1) (π‘₯+2) = 0 (π‘₯+1) (π‘₯+2) = 0 So, 𝒙 = –1 , –2 Plotting points on number line Hence, f is decreasing for the interval (βˆ’2, βˆ’1). So, the correct answer is (B)
