6.2 PROPERTY OF CURVES




After completing this section, you should be able to:

  • find equation of tangent to a curve: \( y – y_1 = f'(a)(x – x_1) \)
  • find equation of normal to a curve: \( y – y_1 = -\displaystyle \dfrac{1}{f'(a)}(x – x_1) \)
  • find the region of increasing and decreasing functions
  • find turning points
  • find points of inflection and concavity
