What does a graph that has an inflection point and is rising everywhere look like? a stretched out S? What does a concave down graph with NO highest point look like? Also, I need to sketch a graph with two inflection points and EXACTLY one place where the tangent line has slope 0. Thank you for your time.

[QUOTE=skeeter;210468]look at the graph of $\displaystyle y = x^3$ but its not rising at x=0 no?

If you're looking for a function with an inflection point where $\displaystyle f'(x) > 0$ for all x, then look at $\displaystyle y = \arctan{x}$
