A function is said to be concave upward on an interval if f"(x) > 0 at each point in the interval and concave downward on an interval if f"(x) < 0 at each point in the interval.

It may be used in curve sketching; solving maximum and minT imum problems; solving distance; velocity, and acceleration problems; solving related rate problems; and approximating function values.

The technique of implicit differentiation allows you to find the derivative of y with respect to x without having to solve the given equation for y. The chain rule must be used whenever the function y is being differentiated because of our assumption that y may be expressed as a function of x. dy Example 3-19: Find dx if x 2 y 3 - xy = 10.
