1. calculate the derivative of f 2. find the roots of the derivative 3. check if those are local maxima, minima or saddle points, you could use the second derivative for that 4. compare the function values at the local extrema to the border points

can you show me the actual solving of the derivative part? chain rule?

  • nowhereman
yes, just the basic rules, of course chain rule for the square root part, just try it on paper

f'(x) = [50x/[sqrt(x^2+10)] - 3 = [10x - 3sqrt(x^2+10)]/[sqrt(x^2+10)] By the definition of a critical number, the critical numbers can be obtained by solving 10x - 3sqrt(x^2+10) = 0 and sqrt(x^2+10) = 0 From the first equation we get x^2 = 90/91. So x = sqrt(90/91) because x is between 0 and 14. From the second equation, note that there is no solution, so no critical number comes from here. So the critical point is (x,f(x)). This critical point will give a local extremum or an inflection point. But to find the absolute extrema, we don't have to know whether (x,f(x)) is a local extremum or not, you just need to compare the values of f(0), f(14) and f(sqrt(90/91)) and choose the largest and smallest value.
