This early in the morning there may not always be someone who can answer a Caclulus question so it may take some time to get an answer. That said, I can help. So, because I won't work the problem for you, let's see if we can figure it out. Do you recall what critical points are?

  • anonymous
yes i do . i know i have to find the max n min values

Okay, so in general what makes a point a critical point? In other words, how are they defined?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, tell me. How are critical points defined? Understanding that is key to working this problem and we need the definition to proceed to the next step. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to just work the problem for you. I want you to understand how to work these problems in general so you can do them again during, say, an exam.

ok

they are thos points in a fuction that the behaviour changes. For instance change in inflection, or moving from max to min or viceversa
anonymous

Well, yes and no. Places where a function changes concavity (infection points) are not always critical points. Minimum and maximum points are critical points, but there are also critical points that are not minimum and maximums. So, think of it instead in terms of the function itself. For a general function, say f(x), critical points are defined to be the values of x for which the derivative, f ' (x) is zero or does not exist. So, we need the derivative of your function to find the critical points. What is the derivative of your function?

  • anonymous
ok. makes sense
anonymous
  • anonymous
i knw how to find the derivative
anonymous
  • anonymous
Good, so what is the derivative? Or can you do the problem from here?
anonymous
  • anonymous
well the derivative will be y=6x-48
anonymous
  • anonymous
if i say thats equal to zero then x=8
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, except your derivative of the second term isn't quite correct. Isn't the derivative of \( \sqrt{x} \), \[ \frac{1}{2}x^{-\frac{1}{2}} \] ? That will change your deriviatve and your critical points.
