    To find critical points, you have to differentiate h. Then solve h'(x)=0. The solutions are the critical points.

    HI , i did and sort of stuck at the end -3x(6-3x^2)^-1/2=0, x=0, and (6-3x^2)^(-1/2)=0, so how do i do at the second part... thanks for the help.

    can you retype the function? as written, this is what you have: h(x)= root over(6-3x^2)

    OK, so you've got your derivative! Solving h'(x) = 0: \[-\frac{ 3x }{ \sqrt{6-3x^2} }=0 \Leftrightarrow 3x=0\] So x=0

    Remember: If a/b=0 this means: a=0 (and b is not 0). So there is an easy solution here...

    so, there is only one critical number (0)..

    so what is critical point is sqrt 6 !

    what would be the critical point ?

    (0, sqrt(6))

    There is even a maximum in that point.

    the answer (0, sqrt(6)) cameout wrong in the webwork..

    But the real question now is: are you convinced that it is true?
