What do you understand by concavity and the second derivative test? Before moving to this, first start with Concavity as you can’t understand anything about second derivative test without learning concavity. Suppose f is differentiable on an open interval I. The graph of f is concave upward on I if the f' is increasing on the interval or f'' is positive in the interval I.
