1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Determine the values of x for which the function, for n>=1, is increasing, decreasing, bounded below or bounded above. The function is (x^n)/n 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I thought about taking the derivative of the function, and setting it to 0. To find which values of x is increasing or decreasing. Edit: This is first forum post, so I apologize if I am forgetting something.
