Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I plug the two into the original function right? Then plug the 3 into the second derivative?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know what is inflection point and critical points?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Critical values are the zeros of the 1st dervivative and inflection points are the zeros of the 2nd derivative?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes for the first but for the second that is only necessary condition but not sufficient condition.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One also needs the lowestorder nonzero derivative to be of odd order (third, fifth, etc.). If the lowestorder nonzero derivative is of even order, the point is not a point of inflection.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what do I need to do? I'm confused now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I haven't made any error then \( A=9 \) and you can find B accordingly :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ignore my second last comment if it confuses you. Plug in x=3 in f''(x)=0 and then x=2 in f'(x)=0
