Find the intervals in which f(x) = logcosx is strictly decreasing and strictly increasing.

1 Answer

Toolbox:
  • For strictly decreasing $ f ' (x) < 0$
  • For strictly increasing $ f ' (x) > 0$
$ f'(x) = -tan\:x$
is positive in $ \bigg( \large\frac{\pi}{2}\: \pi \bigg) \cup \bigg( \large\frac{3\pi}{2}\: 2\pi \bigg)$ and hence is increasing.
and is decreasing in $\bigg( 0 \: \large\frac{\pi}{2} \bigg) \cup \bigg( \pi \: \large\frac{3\pi}{2} \bigg)$
