Learn how to show that a function is always increasing using its derivative

Key Points

The values of a function are the f(x) or y values

Increasing function means the values are increasing 

Increasing effectively means the graph of the function is going up to the right

The slope is measured by the gradient which is just the derivative

So, we use the functions derivative to show that it is always increasing
