find double derivative and set equal to zero

looks right to me
when i got it equal to 0 i got t=
from there i dont know
you set the second derivative to zero
-24(t - 3) = 0
t = 3
yes, then what?
it reaches the most rapid in 3 hours
you start at 8 am
plus 3 equal 11 am
yo man you just blew my mind!
thank you sooo much! now i know but can you explain a bit? why the 2nd derivative?
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
i have to go now
but if this doesn't make sense, i'll try coming on again later
no it made perfecet sense! I just dont pay attention in class as much, ha! well ok thank you and have a good day!
