It works the same as the last theorem. Pick two points x and y in (a, b) with x < y. We must show f(x) < f(y). By MVT there exists a point c in (x, y) such that f(y) − f(x) = f′ (c) > 0. y−x So f(y) − f(x) = f′ (c)(y − x) > 0. . . . . . .

- 27. Theorem (Concavity Test) If f′′ (x) > 0 for all x in I, then the graph of f is concave upward on I If f′′ (x) < 0 for all x in I, then the graph of f is concave downward on I . . . . . .
- 28. Theorem (Concavity Test) If f′′ (x) > 0 for all x in I, then the graph of f is concave upward on I If f′′ (x) < 0 for all x in I, then the graph of f is concave downward on I Proof. Suppose f′′ (x) > 0 on I. This means f′ is increasing on I. Let a and x be in I. The tangent line through (a, f(a)) is the graph of L(x) = f(a) + f′ (a)(x − a) f(x) − f(a) = f′ (b).

- 31. Example Find the intervals of concavity for the graph of f(x) = x3 + x2 . Solution We have f′ (x) = 3x2 + 2x, so f′′ (x) = 6x + 2. This is negative when x < −1/3, positive when x > −1/3, and 0 when x = −1/3 . . . . . .
- 32. Example Find the intervals of concavity for the graph of f(x) = x3 + x2 . Solution We have f′ (x) = 3x2 + 2x, so f′′ (x) = 6x + 2. This is negative when x < −1/3, positive when x > −1/3, and 0 when x = −1/3 So f is concave down on (−∞, −1/3), concave up on (1/3, ∞), and has an inﬂection point at (−1/3, 2/27) . . . . . .

- 37. The Second Derivative Test Theorem (The Second Derivative Test) Let f, f′ , and f′′ be continuous on [a, b]. Let c be be a point in (a, b) with f′ (c) = 0. If f′′ (c) < 0, then f(c) is a local maximum. If f′′ (c) > 0, then f(c) is a local minimum. If f′′ (c) = 0, the second derivative test is inconclusive (this does not mean c is neither; we just don’t know yet). . . . . . .

- 42. Example Find the local extrema of f(x) = x3 + x2 . Solution f′ (x) = 3x2 + 2x = x(3x + 2) is 0 when x = 0 or x = −2/3. Remember f′′ (x) = 6x + 2 Since f′′ (−2/3) = −2 < 0, −2/3 is a local maximum. Since f′′ (0) = 2 > 0, 0 is a local minimum. . . . . . .
