Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 1.

Show that the function given by f(x) = 3x + 17 is strictly increasing on R.

Solution:
We have, f(x) = 3x + 17
f’(x) = 3 > 0 x R
Therefore, f is strictly increasing on R.

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 2.

Show that the function given by f(x) = e2x is strictly increasing on R.

Solution:
We have, f(x) = e2x
f’(x) = 2e2x
Case I   When x > 0, then f’(x) = 2e2x

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 3.

Show that the function given by f(x) = sin x is
(a) strictly increasing in (0, Ï€/2)
(b) strictly decreasing in (Ï€/2, Ï€)
(c) neither increasing nor decreasing in (0, Ï€)

Solution:
We have, f(x) = sin x
f’(x) = cos x
(a) Since f’(x) = cos x is +ve in the interval (0, Ï€/2)
f(x) is strictly increasing in (0, Ï€/2)
(b) Since f’(x) = cos x is -ve in the interval (Ï€/2, Ï€)
f(x) is strictly decreasing in (Ï€/2, Ï€)
(c) Since f’(x) = cos x is +ve in the interval (0, Ï€/2)
while f’(x) is -ve in the interval (Ï€/2, Ï€)
f(x) is neither increasing nor decreasing in (0, Ï€).

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 4.

Find the intervals in which the function f given by f(x) = 2x² – 3x is
(a) strictly increasing
(b) strictly decreasing

Solution:
We have, f(x) = 2x² – 3x
f’(x) = 4x – 3
f’(x) = 0 at x = ¾

The point x = ¾ divides the real number line in two disjoint intervals.

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 5.

Find the intervals in which the function f given by f(x) = 2x3 – 3x² – 36x + 7 is
(a) strictly increasing
(b) strictly decreasing

Solution:
We have, f(x) = 2x3 – 3x² – 36x + 7

f’(x) = 6x2 – 6x – 36 = 6(x2 – x – 6)
f’(x) = 6(x – 3) (x + 2)
f’(x) = 0 at x = 3 and x = –2
The points x = 3 and x = –2 divide the real number line into three disjoint intervals, i.e., (–∞, –2), (–2, 3), (3, ∞).
Now, f’(x) is +ve in the intervals (–∞, –2) and (3, ∞). Since in the interval (–∞, –2), each factor (x – 3) and (x + 2) is -ve.
f’(x) = +ve.
(a) f is strictly increasing in (–∞, –2) and (3, ∞)
(b) In the interval (–2, 3), (x + 2) is +ve and (x – 3) is -ve.
f’(x) = 6(x – 3)(x + 2) = (+) × (–) = -ve
f is strictly decreasing in the interval (–2, 3).

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 6.

Find the intervals in which the following functions are strictly increasing or decreasing:
(a) x² + 2x – 5
(b) 10 – 6x – 2x²
(c) –2x3 – 9x² – 12x + 1
(d) 6 – 9x – x²
(e) (x + 1)3 (x – 3)3

Solution:
(a) Given: f(x) = x² + 2x – 5

f’(x) = 2x + 2 = 2(x + 1)    …. (i)

Therefore,

f′(x) = 0 x = −1

Now, x = −1 divides the real number line into intervals (−, −1) and (−1, ).

In (−, −1), f′(x) = 2x + 2 < 0

Thus, f is strictly decreasing in (−, −1).

In (−1, ), f′(x) = 2x + 2 > 0

Thus, f is strictly increasing in (−1, )

(b) Given: f(x) = 10 − 6x − 2x2

Therefore, f′(x) = −6 − 4x

f′(x) = 0 x = −3/2

Now, x = −3/2, divides the real number line into two intervals (−, −3/2) and (−3/2, ).

In (−, −3/2), f′(x) = −6 −4x < 0

Hence, f is strictly increasing for x < −3/2.

In (−3/2, ), f′(x) = −6 − 4x > 0

Hence, f is strictly increasing for x > −3/2.

(c) Given: f(x) = –2x3 – 9x2 – 12x + 1
f’(x) = –6x2 – 18x – 12 = –6(x2 + 3x + 2)
f'(x) = –6(x + 1)(x + 2)

Now, f’(x) = 0 gives x = –1 or x = –2
The points x = – 2 and x = – 1 divide the real number line into three disjoint intervals namely ( –
, –2) ( –2, –1) and( –1, ).
In the interval (–
, –2), i.e., – < x < -2, (x + 1) and (x + 2) are –ve.
f’(x) = (–) (–) (–) = –ve.
f(x) is decreasing in (–, –2)
In the interval (–2, –1), i.e., – 2 < x < –1, (x + 1) is –ve and (x + 2) is +ve.
f'(x) = (–)(–) (+) = +ve.
f(x) is increasing in (–2, –1)
In the interval (–1,
), i.e., –1 < x < , (x + 1) and (x + 2) are both positive.

f’(x) = (–) (+) (+) = –ve.
f(x) is decreasing in (–1, )
Hence, f(x) is increasing for –2 < x < –1 and decreasing for x < –2 and x > –1.

(d) Given: f(x) = 6 − 9x − x2

Hence, f′(x) = −9 − 2x

f′(x) = 0 x = −9/2

In (−9/2, ∞), f′(x) < 0

Hence, f is strictly decreasing for x > −9/2.

In (−∞, −9/2), f′(x) > 0

Hence, f is strictly decreasing in x > −9/2.

(e) Given: f(x) = (x + 1)3 (x − 3)3

Hence, f′(x) = 3(x + 1)2 (x − 3)3 + 3(x − 3)2 (x + 1)3

= 3(x + 1)2 (x − 3)2 [x – 3 + x + 1]

= 3(x + 1)2 (x − 3)2 (2x − 2)

= 6(x + 1)2 (x − 3)2 (x − 1)

Therefore, f′(x) = 0 x = −1, 3, 1

Now, x = −1, 3, 1 divides the real number line into four intervals (−∞, −1), (−1, 1), (1, 3) and (3, ∞).

In (−∞, −1) and (−1, 1)f′(x) = 6(x + 1)2 (x − 3)2 (x − 1) < 0

Hence, f is strictly decreasing in (−∞, −1) and (−1, 1).

In (1, 3) and (3, ∞)f′(x) = 6(x + 1)2 (x − 3)2 (x − 1) > 0

Hence, f is strictly increasing in (1, 3) and (3, ∞).

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 7.

Show that , is an increasing function of x throughout its domain.

Solution:

Since, x > −1, x = 0 divides domain (−1, ∞) in two intervals −1 < x < 0 and x > 0

When, −1 < x < 0

Then, x < 0 x2 > 0

x > −1 (2 + x) > 0

(2 + x)2 > 0

Thus, f is increasing throughout the domain.

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 8.

Find the values of x for which y = [x (x – 2)]² is an increasing function.

Solution:
We have, y = x4 – 4x3 + 4x2
∴ dy/dx = 4x3 – 12x2 + 8x
For the function to be increasing dy/dx = 0
4x3 – 12x2 + 8x = 0
4x(x – 1) (x – 2) = 0

x = 0, x = 1, x = 2
Now, x = 0x = 1 and x = 2 divide the real number line in the intervals (−∞, 0), (0, 1), (1, 2) and (2,∞).

In (−∞, 0) and (1, 2)dy/dx < 0

Hence, y is strictly decreasing in intervals (−∞, 0) and (1, 2)

In (0, 1) and (2, ∞)dy/dx > 0

Hence, y is strictly increasing in intervals (0, 1) and (2, ∞).

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 9.

Prove that  is an increasing function of Î¸ in [0, Ï€/2].

Solution:

Ex 6.2 Class 12 Maths Question 10.

Prove that the logarithmic function is strictly increasing on (0, ∞).

Solution:
Let f(x) = log x
Then, f’(x) = 1/x

For x > 0, 1/x > 0,
Therefore, f’(x) > 0
Hence, f(x) is an increasing function in the interval (0, ∞).

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 11.

Prove that the function f given by f(x) = x² – x + 1 is neither strictly increasing nor strictly decreasing on (–1, 1).

Solution:
Given: f(x) = x² – x + 1
Then, f’(x) = 2x – 1

f(x) is strictly increasing when f’(x) > 0.

2x – 1 > 0

x > ½

Thus, f(x) is increasing on (1/2, 1).

f(x) is strictly decreasing when f’(x) < 0.

2x – 1 < 0

x < ½

Thus, f(x) is decreasing on (–1, 1/2).

Hence, f(x) is neither strictly increasing nor decreasing on (–1, 1).

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 12.

Which of the following functions are strictly decreasing on [0, Ï€/2]
(a) cos x
(b) cos 2x
(c) cos 3x
(d) tan x

Solution:
(a) We have, f(x) = cos x
f’(x) = – sin x < 0 in [0, Ï€/2]
f’(x) is a decreasing function.

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 13.

On which of the following intervals is the function f given by f(x )= x100 + sin x – 1 strictly decreasing ?
(A) (0, 1)
(B) [Ï€/2, Ï€]
(C) [0, Ï€/2]
(D) none of these

Solution:
(D) We have, f(x) = x100 + sin x – 1
f’(x)= 100x99+ cos x

(a) For (0, 1) i.e. 0 < x < 1, x99 and cos x are both +ve
f’ (x) > 0
f(x) is increasing on (0, 1).

Therefore, the option (D) is correct.

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 14.

Find the least value of a such that the function f given by f(x) = x² + ax + 1 is strictly increasing on [1, 2].

Solution:
We have, f(x) = x² + ax + 1
f’(x) = 2x + a.
Since f(x) is an increasing function on (1, 2)
f’(x) > 0 for all 1 < x < 2

Now, f”(x) = 2 for all x (1, 2) f”(x) > 0 for all x (1, 2)
f’(x) is an increasing function on (1, 2)
f’(x) is the least value of f’(x) on (1, 2)
But f’(x) > 0
x (1, 2)
f’(1) > 0 2 + a > 0
a > –2

Thus, the least value of a is –2.

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 15.

Let I be any interval disjoint from [–1, 1]. Prove that the function f given by f(x) = x + 1/x is strictly increasing on I.

Solution:
Given f(x) = x + 1/x

Hence, f’ (x) is strictly increasing on I.

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 16.

Prove that the function f given by f(x) = log sin x is strictly increasing on (0, Ï€/2) and strictly decreasing on (Ï€/2, Ï€).

Solution:

We have, f(x) = log sin x
f’(x) =
When 0 < x < Ï€/2, f’(x) is +ve; i.e., increasing
When Ï€/2 < x < Ï€, f’(x) is -ve; i.e., decreasing,
f(x) is decreasing.

Hence, f is increasing on (0, Ï€/2) and strictly decreasing on (Ï€/2, Ï€).

Maths Class 12 Ex 6.2 Question 17.

Prove that the function f given by f(x) = log (cos x) is strictly decreasing on (0, Ï€/2) and strictly increasing on (Ï€/2, Ï€).

f’(x) =
In the interval (0, Ï€/2), f’(x) = -ve
f is strictly decreasing.
In the interval (Ï€/2, Ï€), f’(x) is + ve.
f is strictly increasing in the interval.

Solution:
We have, f(x) = x3 – 3x2 + 3x – 100

f’(x) = 3x2 – 6x + 3
= 3(x2 – 2x + 1)
= 3(x – 1)2
Now x
R, f'(x) = (x – 1)2 ≥ 0
i.e. f'(x) ≥ 0
x R

Hence, f(x) is increasing on R.

(B) (2, 0)                (C) (2, ∞)                       (D) (0, 2)

Solution:

(D) We have, y = x2 e-x   or f(x) = x2 e-x

f’(x) = 2xe-x + x2(–e-x) = xe-x(2-x) = e-xx(2 – x)
Now e-x is positive for all x
R; f’(x) = 0 at x = 0, 2
x = 0, x = 2 divide the number line into three disjoint intervals, viz. (-∞, 0), (0, 2) and (2, ∞).
(a) In interval (-∞, 0), x is +ve and (2 – x) is +ve
f’(x) = e-xx(2 – x) = (+) (–) (+) = -ve
