 growth and recession Explanation:This is a guess, but an educated one, based on the presence of "derivadas": "Applications of derivatives in the study of growth and recession..." The context is likelier to be economics as opposed, for instance, to biology (where one converse of "growth" might be "decay"). Hope this helps, HC

Explanation:
A HC está parcialmente correta - depende da área. Pode ser matemática, economia, etc. Ela escolheu termos mais adequados para biologia.
