which conclusion(s) can be made if you know the following? Justify your conclusion(s) a. f'(c)=0, f(c) exists, f'(c?x)<0 and f'(c+?x)>0 b. f(1) exists, f'(1)>0, and f''(1)<0 a. I put an inflection slope=0 function increases in one direction and decreases in the other. b. I put increasing with x but rate of increase is decreasing.

a) We may conclude there is a local minimum at x = c, via the first derivative test. f(x) is decreasing to the left of c and increasing to the right and stationary at x = c, thus (c,f(c)) is a local minimum. b) Correct.
