    yeah i get using the chain rule to find the derivative but i don't know what is meant by "finding values so that dy/dx = 0"

    y'=f(x) y'=0 implies you set f(x)=0 and solve for x

    Just set the derivative equal to zero and solve for x

    i have y' = 2x * cos(x^2) correct? so 2x * cos(x^2) = 0?

    So we have x=0 or cos(x^2)=0

    You need to solve cos(x^2)=0 for x on [0,pi)

    You are to find values for which it becomes 0 not 1..

    For what values satisfy cos(u)=0 look at unit circle.

    You are actually solving cos(u)=0 for u on 0<u<=pi^2 Keep in mind that pi^2 is between 3pi and 7 pi/2 So you actually want to find values for u that satisfy cos(u)=0 on 0<u<3pi

    sorry waterineyes ;) i got it, thank you myininaya, the square roots of pi/2, 8pi/2, & 5pi/2 are the zero's within that interval

    Hey @El_Tucan that 8pi/2 should be something else

    Those other two values you got were right with the little square root thingy that you said :)
