## Simple Explanation of Stationary Points

Stationary points are when a curve is neither increasing nor decreasing at some points, we say the curve is stationary at these points. At stationary points, the gradient of the tangent (straight line which touches a curve at a point) to the curve is zero.

At stationary points, f¹ (x) = 0 or

At stationary points, f¹ (x) = 0 or

**dy/dx = 0**
