 # Section 4 1 Increasing and Decreasing Functions Objectives

• Slides: 39 Section 4. 1 Increasing and Decreasing Functions Objectives: 1. To give intervals where a function is increasing or decreasing using interval notation. 2. To identify one-to-one functions using the horizontal line test. 3. To identify monotonic A closed interval is a segment (interval that includes both endpoints) and is represented with square brackets. An open interval is one that does not include its endpoints and is represented with parentheses. -6 -4 -2 0 2 4 6 Type of Interval closed Inequality -2 x 1 Interval Notation [-2, 1] -6 -4 -2 0 2 4 Type of Interval open Inequality 1 x 4 Interval Notation (1, 4) 6 -6 -4 -2 0 2 4 6 Type of Interval half-open Inequality 0 x 3 Interval Notation [0, 3) EXAMPLE 1 Write the set shown in interval notation. -4 -2 Answer [-2, ∞) 0 2 4 Definition One-to-one correspondence of sets A pairing of elements of two sets so that any element of either set is paired with exactly one element of the other set. Consider the mapping for f = {(1, 7), (2, 5), (3, 5), (4, 6)} 1 2 3 4 7 5 6 D R f is a function, but not one-toone. Definition One-to-one function f is one-to -one if and only if f(a) = f(b) implies a = b, a, b Df (domain of f ). Consider the mapping for g = {(5, 8), (-2, 3), (4, 7)} 5 8 -2 3 4 7 D R The function g is one-to-one. Definition Increasing function A function is increasing if and only if for any two points x 1 and x 2 R, x 1 x 2 implies f(x 1) f(x 2). Definition Decreasing function A function is decreasing if and only if for any two points x 1 and x 2 R, x 1 x 2 implies f(x 1) f(x 2). Increasing Function Decreasing Function Decreasing Function y x A function that is increasing over its entire domain or one that is decreasing over its entire domain is a strictly monotonic function. A monotonic function may remain constant over all or part of its domain. It is either nondecreasing or nonincreasing. Definition Nondecreasing function A function is nondecreasing if and only if for any two points x 1 and x 2 R, x 1 x 2 implies f(x 1) f(x 2). Definition Nonincreasing function A function is nonincreasing if and only if for any two points x 1 and x 2 R, x 1 x 2 implies f(x 1) f(x 2).
