Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Stationary points are points where derivative is zero or slope is zero find dy/dx dy/dx=3x^212x+9 equate it to 0 3x^212x+9=0 x^24x+3=0 (x1)(x3)=0 x= 1 and x=3 are the two stationary points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2to classify them , let's find d^2y/dx^2 it comes out to be 6x12 if d^2y/dx^2>0 it is a minima, if it's less than 0 then it is a point of maxima x=1 d^2y/dx^2=6 so it's a point of maxima x=3 d^2y/dx^2=6 so it's a point of minima
