The derivative of a function may be used to determine whether the function is increasing or decreasing on any intervals in its domain. If f′(x) > 0 at each point in an interval I, then the function is said to be increasing on I. f′(x) < 0 at each point in an interval I, then the function is said to be decreasing on I. Because the derivative is zero or does not exist only at critical points of the function, it must be positive or negative at all other points where the function exists.

If a 1 , a 2 ,a 3 , a 4 , a 5 , a 6 are in A.P., then prove that the system of equations a 1 x + a 2 y = a 3 , a 4 x + a 5 y = a 6 is consistent
 
 
Let a 1 = a, then a 2 = a + d, a 3 = a + 2d, a 4 = a + 3d, a 5 = a + 4d, a 6 = a + 5d The equations are consisent if a 4 /a 1 # a 5 /a 2 => a 4 * a 2 # a 5 * a 1 => (a + 3d) * ( a + d) # (a...

Does Average Velocity have Direction?
 
 
DEAR VARUN , I DON''T THINK AVERAGE VELOCITY HAS DIRECTION IT ONLY HAS MAGNITUDE APPROVE IF MY ANSWER IS RIGHT PLEASE
 
Revanth - - one year ago
 
Yes - just like any velocity, average velocity is a vector and has a direction associated with it. Speed, on the other hand is only an intensive property which has no specific direction...
