For what values is f(x) concave up and concave down.
The function is similar to this:
In the problem, the f(x) axis is not labelled, and the x-intercepts are not labelled. So I believe you are supposed to approximate the inflection points. (The graph I have is not as symmetric as the picture in the link)
Here the graph is concave down on `(-oo,-1)` , concave up on `(-1,2)` , and concave down on `(2,oo)`

Wouldn't we have to change the original graph to the derivative to find the concavity?
