**Limit Involving Radicals and as x Approaching ∞**

We have done limits at infinity (i.e., limx∞f(x) and limx–∞f(x) where f(x) is a rational function), what happen if f(x) is not a rational function? For example, (Usually you don’t see this limit because ________________, but if you do see it, you will say the limit is ____.)

**First and Second Derivative Tests for Local Maximum and Minimum**

Recall that if f (c) = 0, most likely f has a local extremum at x = c. However, it’s not a must (recall the example f(x) = x3, where f (0) = 0, but f doesn’t have a local extremum at x = 0—but rather, it is an inflection point). Even if f has a local extremum at x = c when f (c) = 0, how can we tell it is a local maximum or minimum? We need one of the following two tests, one of which we have already learned. The First Derivative Test Suppose that c is a critical number of a continuous function f (i.e, f (c) = 0). i. If f changes from positive to negative at c, then f has a local maximum at c. ii. If f changes from negative to positive at c, then f has a local ________ at c. iii. If f does not change sign at c (for example, if f is positive on both sides of c or negative on both sides, then f has no local maximum or minimum at c. Examples: The other test is called the Second Derivative Test, which is a consequence of the Concavity Test. The Second Derivative Test Suppose f (c) exist. i. If f (c) = 0 and f (c) > 0, then f has a local ___________ at c. ii. If f (c) = 0 and f (c) < 0, then f has a local ___________ at c. iii. If f (c) = 0 and f (c) = 0, then the test is _____________. f(x) = x3
