\[f(x) = x^2e^{-x}\]
\[f'(x) =e^{-x}(2x-x^2)\]
\[f'' =e^{-x}(x-2)^2\] or
\[f'' =e^{-x}(x^2-4x+2)\]

- hartnn

\(f'' =e^{-x}(x^2-4x+2)\) is correct
\(f'' =e^{-x}(x-2)^2\) is incorrect

- Jusaquikie

for my infliction points i need f"=0 i thought this should be at 2 but that is not right. when i solve f" for x on my calculator i get
\[-(\sqrt{2}-2) \]and \[\sqrt{2}+2 \]

- hartnn

x^2-4x+2 will get u to correct points

- Jusaquikie

i believe this has something to do with it being squared but i don't understand why beacuse 0 squared is still 0

- Jusaquikie

i know the answer is the first of the infliction points i have listed but i just don't see how to solve the second derivitive that way

- Jusaquikie

well how to solve f"=0 that way

- hartnn

what exactly is your doubt ?
u got \(f'' =e^{-x}(x^2-4x+2)\)
now f''(x)=0 will give
\((x^2-4x+2)=0\)
can u solve this quadratic to get 2 values of x ?

- hartnn

those 2 values of x will be your inflection points.

- Jusaquikie

do i need to use the quadratic formula? beacuse it simplifies to (x-2)(x-2) so 2 will make it zero

- hartnn

@Jusaquikie plz observe that \(f'' =e^{-x}(x-2)^2\) IS INCORRECT !

- hartnn

and you use quadratic formula for \(x^2-4x+2=0\)

- hartnn

or u could complete the square

- Jusaquikie

ok i see now that for (x-2) to work it would have to be X^2 - 4x +4

- hartnn

yes!

- Jusaquikie

it's just late and my mind is jumping to the easiest answer after computing that beastly second derivatives.

- Jusaquikie

so the quadratic formula would be what i'd use if they didn't come out even and if i used that i bet i'd get the right answer

- Jusaquikie

thanks for the help @hartnn

- hartnn

thats correct.

- hartnn

welcome ^_^

now i can sleep

good night and sweet dreams :)
