5.3 Interpretation of the Sign of Derivative

We will now cover the meaning of the sign of the derivative and see what inference can be drawn from it and also study its applications to some practical problems from onwards. We will assume that the functions that we consider are continuous and differentiable at all points and all intervals in questions unless otherwise stated. Further the numbers, denoted by h or D, will always be taken as positive.
