# Demetri is studying a new function g and has concluded that g is decreasing at #x = 5#. Which of the following can Demetri now conclude? [Choose all that apply] (Choices below)

##
I say that it is II, V, and either III or IV? Can you just double-check?

I. The slope of the tangent line to g at #x = 5# is positive

II. The slope of the tangent line to g at #x = 5# is negative

III. The rate of change of #g# at #x = 5# is positive

IV. The rate of change of #g# at #x = 5# is negative

V. #g'(5) < 0#

VI. #g'(5) > 0#

II, IV and V

#### Explanation:

The definition of an increasing or decreasing function is that

# { (y' < 0),(y' > 0) :} => {: (y " is decreasing"), (y " is increasing") :} #

So if

Hence the correct solutions are:

II, IV and V
