hey, how's it going?
Awesome, you?
not bad, so it's asking for the greatest amount, which is another way of asking for a maximum, so we know we want the derivative of some function

Other answers:

do you know what function we need the maximum of?
x-x^2?
There wasn't one given, so I just guessed that this one would be it.
well we could do x-x^2, but then we'd just need to look for the minimum
err sorry you're right my bad
so yeah, take the derivative of that and set equal to 0
1-2x=0...1/2?
right
Great! Thank you so much for all of your help! :)
you can check that it is a maximum since it is positive to the left and negative to the right of 1/2
Oh my gosh, I didn't even notice that or think to graph it.
