To find points of inflection and determine intervals of concavity for ( y = \tan^{-1}(x) ), follow these steps:

- Find the first and second derivatives of ( y ) with respect to ( x ).
- Set the second derivative equal to zero and solve for ( x ). These are potential points of inflection.
- Determine the intervals where the second derivative is positive or negative.
- Test the sign of the second derivative within each interval to determine the concavity.
- Confirm points of inflection by checking the concavity change at those points.

To find points of inflection and determine intervals of concavity for ( y = \tan^{-1}x ), follow these steps:

- Find the second derivative of ( y ) with respect to ( x ).
- Set the second derivative equal to zero and solve for ( x ) to find potential points of inflection.
- Determine the concavity of the function by analyzing the sign of the second derivative in intervals separated by the potential points of inflection.
- Use test points within each interval to confirm the concavity and identify intervals of concavity.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
