Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. Turn the inequality into an equation, simply by writing 6x^3 + 30x^2 = 0. The reason for doing this is to find the solutions of x. In this case the value of x that solves this equation is 0 and 5. 2. Set up the intervals for the function. That is, (negative infinity, 0) ; (0,5) ; (5, positive infinity) 3. Take a test value from each interval (do not use any of the boundary values, i.e. 0 or 5) and substitute it into the expression 6x^3 + 30x^2. Only regard the sign of the return value. 4. Since 6x^3 + 30x^2 must be greater than or equal to zero, select only those intervals that yield a positive number. 5. Be sure to use square brackets appropriately to account for the 'or equal to zero' part of the inequality.
