Question #17681
Consider the function f(x)=(3x+6)/(3x+2). For this function there are two important intervals: (&minus;&infin;,A) and (A,&infin;) where the function is not defined at A. Determine A. A= For each of the following intervals, tell whether f(x) is increasing (input INC ) or decreasing (type in DEC ). (&minus;&infin;,A): (A,&infin;): Note that this function has no inflection points, but we can still consider its concavity. For each of the following intervals, tell whether f(x) is concave up (input CU ) or concave down (type in CD ). (&minus;&infin;,A): (A,&infin;):

we find A from denominator cant be zero so
3x+2=0 so
x=-3/2 A=-3/2
f'=-12/(3x+2)<0
x not=A so f DEC on the both (−∞,A), (A,∞):
f"=72/(3x+2)^3x belongs (−∞,A) f"<0 then CU
x belongs (A,∞) f">0 then CD
