Still trying to wrap my head around these kinds of problems!!

1.

For which intervals is the function negative?

Get each correct answer.

Options

(6,8]

(-4,0)

[-6,-4)

(0,6)

2.

What is the relative minimum of the function?

3.

Which answer describes the function f(x)=x^5+2x ?

Odd

Even

Neither

For problem number 2, do you know what relative minimum and relative maximum are?

For question 1, (-6,-4) is the function is negative, itâ€™s the only answer choice that lands on the image in the graph that is below the x-axis

2. The relative minimum of a function is the lowest part of a graph in its "neighborhood"

In this function.....the lowest part of the graph is the least y value.....this is at y = -5

So....-5 is the relative minimum....[ also the absolte minimum ]

3. Here's an easy test for eveness/oddness

Test for even.....sub -x for x.......if this equals the original function....it is even

So (-x)^5 + 2(-x) = -x^5 - 2x

This does not equal x^5 + 2x

Not the same....so....not even

Test for odd....if f(-x) = -f(x)

(-x)^5 + 2(-x) = - [ x^5 + 2(x) ] ???

-x^5 - 2x = -x^5 - 2x

The same...so....odd
