If the original graph, f, has a cusp, obviously the derivative is not defined at the x-value of the cusp (resulting in an asymptote).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

but, what if you are viewing a graph of the derivative, f ', and it has a cusp.. what is going on at the x-value of the cusp on the original graph, f ?
