In This Chapter
Finding the value of a function at a specific x-value
Finding the zeros, maximum, and minimum values of a function
Finding points of intersection graphically
Finding the slope of a tangent and the value of the definite integral
Graphing derivatives and drawing inverses of functions
After graphing a function (as described in Chapter 9), you can use the options on the Calculate menu to find the value of the function at a specified value of x, to find the zeros (x-intercepts) of the function, and to find the maximum and minimum values of the function. You can even find the derivative of the function at a specified value of x, or you can evaluate a definite integral of the function. This, in turn, enables you to find the slope of the tangent to the graph of the function at a specified value of x or to find the area between ...
