Justify your answer (b) At what value(s) of x does f have local maxima? Justify your answer. (c) How many points of inflection does that graph of f have? Justify your answer.

    (a) on the interval where \(f'(x)>0\) (b) it can only be a local maxima where \(f'(x)=0\). This is necessary but not sufficient to show that it is. (c)inflection points can occur where \(f''(x)=0\). Again this is necessary but not sufficient
