Decreasing Increasing or Constant - College Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:05
    So, to summarize what we can say about function behavior, or at least this
  • 0:05 - 0:10
    aspect of it. If the value of the function goes down as the value of x goes up,
  • 0:10 - 0:14
    then we say that the function is decreasing. Just like over here where it's
  • 0:14 - 0:18
    sloping down. Now if instead f of x increases as x increases, then we say that
  • 0:18 - 0:23
    the function is increasing. Like in this part of the graph. The third option is
  • 0:23 - 0:28
    that f of x doesn't change at all as x increases. Here, f of x is a constant. So
  • 0:28 - 0:32
    here I've drawn another sort of silly looking graph, and I'm going to divide it
  • 0:32 - 0:37
    into several regions. So for each of the regions of the domain that I've split
  • 0:37 - 0:41
    up right here on the left, I'd like you to tell me if in that range in the
  • 0:41 - 0:46
    domain, the function, which is g of x in this case, is increasing, decreasing,
  • 0:46 - 0:50
    or a constant? Please pick one of these 3 values for each part of the domain.
