rect 2. Explanation: If F1 and F2 are anti-derivatives of f then F1 (x) − F2 (x) = constant independently of x; this means that for any two anti-derivatives of f the graph of one is just a vertical translation of the graph of the other. But no horizontal translation of the graph of an anti-derivative of f will be

Version 076 – EXAM 1 – sachse – (56620) the graph of an anti-derivative of f , nor can a horizontal and vertical translation be the graph of an anti-derivative. This rules out two sets of graphs. Now in each of the the remaining four ﬁgures the dotted and dashed graphs consist of vertical translations of the graph whose linestyle is a continuous line. To decide which of these ﬁgures consists of anti-derivatives of f , therefore, we have to look more carefully at the actual graphs. But calculus ensures that (i) an anti-derivative of f will have a local extremum at the x-intercepts of f . This eliminates two more ﬁgures since they contains graphs whose local extrema occur at points other than the x-intercepts of f . (ii) An anti-derivative of f is increasing on interval where the graph of f lies above the x-axis, and decreasing where the graph of f lies below the x-axis. Consequently, of the two remaining ﬁgures only as a deﬁnite integral. 1
