    this should be intuitive because tangent parallel to the x-axis implies that its value is 0. And then you find the prime of y, and set it to 0

    tangent is parallel to the x-axis so its slope equals to 0. on the other hand slope of tangent line|dw:1349077584783:dw| equals to derivative of function at the given point

    find the first derivative... = 3x^2 -3=0 so at x= +1 , -1 the slope of tanget is zero..
