Aplicações das derivadas no estudo de crescimento e decrescimento
António Ribeiro
Local time: 13:06
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

increase and decrease


Explanation:
A HC está parcialmente correta - depende da área. Pode ser matemática, economia, etc. Ela escolheu termos mais adequados para biologia.
INCREASE and DECREASE são mais gerais e se podem se aplicar tanto à matemática como economia, pois são bem genéricos.
