(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

find the slope and concavity of the funtion at the given point.

x=t^2

Y=t^2+t+1

(0,0)

2. Relevant equations

t=x^(1/2)

3. The attempt at a solution

t=0 when x=0

x'=2t

y'=2t+1

M=2t/(2t+1)=0

for the second deritive would you take the deritive of 2t/(2t+1) devided by the deritive of 2t+1

once i find the second deritive i would plug in o for t and if it was + than it would be up -would be down. right?
