 Math Central Quandaries & Queries
 Question from Z., a teacher: I was wondering if the function F(x)= x/ln(x) had an inflection point? If yes, why it's not visible on the graph of the function? Thanks.

Hi,

The graph does change concavity at $x = 1$ but there is no point on the graph at $x = 1$ so there is no inflection point.
