Find the interval in which


Find the interval in which $f(x)=\log (1+x)-\frac{x}{1+x}$ is increasing or decreasing ?


we have

$f(x)=\log (1+x)-\frac{x}{1+x}$




Critical points


$\Rightarrow \frac{x}{(1+x)^{2}}=0$

$\Rightarrow x=0,-1$

Clearly, $f^{\prime}(x)>0$ if $x>0$

And $f^{\prime}(x)<0$ if $-1

Hence, $f(x)$ increases in $(0, \infty)$, decreases in $(-\infty,-1) \cup(-1,0)$
