The amount A(t) of a certain item produced in a factory is given by
A(t)= 4000+48(t3)4(t3)^3
Where t is the number of hours of production since the beginning of the workday at 8 am. At what time is the rate of production increasing most rapidly?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yo man you just blew my mind! thank you sooo much! now i know but can you explain a bit? why the 2nd derivative?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sure the first derivative will give you the slope yes? if the slope is positive, then the rate at which it's being produced is increasing now here's the confusing part, so bare with me the second derivative will give you the slopes of the rate of production just like how when the first derivative hits zero, it's a max/min when the second derivative hits zero, it's when the rate of production is max/min so you solve for that make sense?
