Ex 6.2,6 Find the intervals in which the following functions are strictly increasing or decreasing: (a) 𝑥2 + 2𝑥 – 5 f (𝑥) = 𝑥2 + 2𝑥 – 5 Step 1: Calculating f’ (𝑥) f’ (𝑥) = 2𝑥 + 2 f’ ( 𝑥) = 2 (𝑥 + 1) Step 2: Putting f’ (𝑥) = 0 2 (𝑥 + 1) = 0 (𝑥 + 1) = 0 𝑥 = –1 Step 3: Plotting point on real line Point 𝑥 = – 1 divide the real line into 2 disjoint interval i.e. − −1 & −1 , uc1 Step 4: Hence f is decreasing for − –1 f is increasing for –1 ,uc1 Ex 6.2,6 Find the intervals in which the following functions are strictly increasing or decreasing: (b) 10 – 6𝑥 – 2𝑥2 Step 1: Calculating f’ (𝑥) f 𝑥 = 10 – 6𝑥 – 2𝑥2 f’ 𝑥 = –6 – 4𝑥 f’ 𝑥 = 2( –3 – 2𝑥) Step 2: Putting f’ 𝑥 = 0 2−3 −2𝑥=0 –3 – 2𝑥 = 0 –2𝑥 = 3 𝑥 = −32 Step 3: Plotting point on real line Point 𝑥 = −32 divide the real line into 2 disjoint interval i.e. − −32 & −32 , uc1 Step 4: Hence f is decreasing for 𝒙 > −𝟑𝟐 f is increasing for 𝒙 < −𝟑𝟐 Ex 6.2,6 Find the intervals in which the following functions are strictly increasing or decreasing: (c) –2𝑥3 – 9𝑥2 – 12𝑥 + 1 f 𝑥 = –2𝑥3 – 9𝑥2 – 12𝑥 + 1 Step 1: Calculating f’𝑥 f’ 𝑥 = –6𝑥2 –18𝑥 – 12 + 0 f’ 𝑥 = –6𝑥2+3𝑥+2 f’ 𝑥 = –6𝑥2+2𝑥+𝑥+2 f’ 𝑥 = –6𝑥𝑥+2+1(𝑥+2) f’ 𝑥 = –6𝑥+1( 𝑥+2) f’ 𝑥 = –6𝑥+1 𝑥+2 Step 2: Putting f’ 𝑥 = 0 f’ 𝑥 = 0 – 6 𝑥+1 𝑥+2 = 0 𝑥+1 𝑥+2 = 0 So, 𝑥 = –1 , –2 Step 3: Plotting value of 𝑥 on real line Point 𝑥 = –2 & –1 divide the real line into 3 disjoint intervals i.e. − −2 −2 , −1 & −1 , uc1 Step 4: Hence, f is increasing for –2 < 𝒙 < –1 & decreasing for 𝒙 < –2 & 𝒙 > –1 Ex 6.2,6 Find the intervals in which the following functions are strictly increasing or decreasing: (d) 6 – 9𝑥 – 𝑥2 f𝑥 = 6 – 9𝑥 – 𝑥2 Step 1: Calculating f’ 𝑥 f’ 𝑥 = –9 – 2𝑥 f’ 𝑥 = –2𝑥+9 Step 2: Putting f’𝑥 = 0 –2𝑥+9 = 0 2𝑥 + 9 = 0 2𝑥 = – 9 𝑥 = −92 Step 3: Plotting point 𝑥 = −92 on real line Point 𝑥 = −92 divide the real line into disjoint interval i.e. − −9 2 & −92 , uc1 Step 4: Hence f is Strictly Increasing for 𝒙 < −𝟗𝟐 & Strictly Decreasing for 𝒙 > −𝟗𝟐 Ex 6.2,6 Find the intervals in which the following functions are strictly increasing or decreasing: (e) 𝑥 + 13 𝑥 – 33 f𝑥 = 𝑥+13 𝑥−33 Step 1: Calculating f’𝑥 f𝑥 = 𝑥+13 𝑥−33 f’𝑥= [𝑥+13]′𝑥−33 +𝑥−33′𝑥+13 f’𝑥=3𝑥+12𝑥−33 + 3𝑥−32𝑥+13 f’𝑥=3𝑥+12𝑥−32 𝑥−3+ 𝑥+1 f’𝑥=3𝑥+12𝑥−32 2𝑥−2 f’𝑥= 6𝑥+12 𝑥−32 𝑥−1 Step 2: Putting f’𝑥=0 6𝑥+12 𝑥−32 𝑥−1 = 0 Hence, 𝑥 = –1 , 1 , & 3 Step 3: Plotting values of x on real line. The point x = –1 , 1 & 3 divide the line segment into 4 disjoint intervals i.e. − −1 −1 , 1 1 , 3 & 3 , uc1 Note that:- f’𝑥 = 6 𝑥+12 𝑥−32 𝑥−1 Step 4: Plotting values of x on real line. Hence, f is strictly increasing for 1 < 𝒙 < 3 & 𝒙 > 3 f is strictly decreasing for 𝒙 < –1 & −𝟏<𝒙< 1
