1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For the function y = 1 / ((x-1)^2) what is: a) the sign of slope b) change in slope (increasing or decreasing) for the interval x > 1 Here is the graph: http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/3204/12491454.jpg [Broken] 2. Relevant equations None 3. The attempt at a solution I said the slope is negative and the change in slope is increasing (going closer to zero) as the values of x increase. But the answer in the text says its negative but the slope is decreasing. I compared to a few other text questions and it goes back and forth on the same shape on other questions, am i missing something? thanks.
