and how's it going until now?
For example On (a) do I have to find roots for only f(x) or f'(x) and f''(x) ?
it says find roots of f
the roots of f: the x's such that f(x)=0 they are (graphically) the x's where the graph crosses the x-axis
ooh first = 3/2
second,third = (-6 +- sqrt(72))/2
Which brings me to another problem of mine on how to actually point this number on the graph
not sure. in the form \((x+3)^2\) you should not compute the square, actually they already made the factorization for you. you can just read the answer: second and third roots are equal: x=-3.
(it's (-6 ± sqrt(0)) / 2 )
ah yea that's true
so we have one root for 3/2 and one for -3
for b I just find f(0) of the function ?
yes again ;)
So the intervals (-inf,-9) increase (-8,0) decrease (0,inf) increase At least thats what I got
the derivative of the function is \(6x(x+3)\). the intervals are (-inf,-3), (-3,0), (0,inf)
arent we using multiplication rule for the derivative
yes. whether the values you found are right or wrong, at least verify that the intervals don't leave gaps. (your intervals left a gap between -9 and -8)
or was it a typo?
it wasnt a typo but I guess you are right on that one
directly using the mult. rule: \(((2x-3)(x+3)^2)' = 2(x+3)^2 + (2x-3)2(x+3) = 2(x+3) \times [(x+3)+(2x-3)]\).
oops. last one is \[ 2(x+3)\times [(x+3) + (2x-3)] = 2(x+3)[3x] = 6x(x+3)\]
hm let me redo it
2(x+3)^2 +4x^2 + 12x - 4x -12 up until now all correct?
i don't think so. do you apply the rule on \((2x-3)(x^2+6x+9)\) ? what's your starting point?
Yes I apply the rule however i start with the product rule first before applying it
show the first steps plz
those are correct?
yes, you made a mistake when computing the product \(2(x+3)(2x-3)\). this is equal to \(4x^2+6x-18\).
Why mistake what do you multiply first with what
ok ok I got it now for concave up/down (-inf,-1) down (-1,inf) up
infection points x=-1
and I am stuck at (f)
your derivation is correctly done. then it's only multiplication: \[2(x^2+6x+9) + 2(x+3)(2x-3)\\ \quad = 2x^2+12x+18 + 2(2x^2-3x+6x-9) \\ \quad = 2x^2+12x+18 + 4x^2 + 6x - 18\\ \quad = 6x^2 + 18x \\ \quad = 6x(x+3)\]-> roots are -3 and 0. -> (-inf, -3), (-3,0), (0,inf) are the intervals.
Yea I see now are my next moves correctly done??
you didn't obtain the correct expression for f' (you got the wrong roots -> wrong intervals). the inflexion point is at -3/2.
you mean for f''(x) I got it wrong?
I damn you are right
\(f'\) is unfortunately wrong, so you could not get the right \(f''\).
(-inf, -3/2) down (-3/2, inf) up I get it now
ouch. no too fast. \(f'(x) = 6x(x+3)\) with roots -3 and 0. -> (-inf,-3) up, (-3,0) down, (0,+inf) up.
\(f''(x) = (6(x^2+3x))' = 6(2x+3)\) with root x=-3/2. -> inflexion point at -3/2.
Bro I mean concave up down :D I moved a step
I understood the previews one
I am just stuck at (f) could you help me out surpass it?
oh ok. (about concave up down) relative extrema means you have to study what happens at each x such that f'(x)=0, at -3 and at 0 in our case.
only for f'(x) and f''(x) ?
the relative extrema (local/global min or max) are only possibly located at the roots of \(f'(x)\). Look at \(x=-3\) and say if it's a min, max, or none of these (inflexion point). Do the same with \(x=0\). You can use \(f''\) to tell you about the shape of the curve at that particular point.
is not a min nor a max at -3 0
you mean (-3,0)? it is a local maximum. Reason: \(f''(-3)<0\). (or just \(f\) is increasing before -3 and decreasing after -3.).
bro you told me to check at f'(x) so which one do I check? do I check both f'(x) and f''(x) ? Do I only use the roots from the first derivative?
1) to answer the question you have to do some job at each of the points that solve \(f'(x)=0\). We know that these points are -3 and 0. 2.1) what happens at -3 ? 2.2) what happens at 0 ? To answer 2.1 and 2.2, you can use any means you want. For example, a quick way is to use \(f''\). \(f''(-3)>0\) means it's a MIN. \(f''(-3)<0\) means it's a MAX. \(f''(-3)=0\) means it's an inflexion point.
so I dont use -3/2 at all? I can only just use the roots of the first derivative for the second?
What we know is that -3/2 is an inflexion point. But it happens (often?) that it is not an extrema. Drawing: |dw:1369665423749:dw|
so you don't need to look at it at all in this question (f). You would have to look at it if it was solution of \(f'(x)=0\). But it is NOT.
Ok and the last and hardest part for me can you help me analise/make the graph?? Would it be possible??
\(x=-3\) -> \(f''(-3) = 6(2*(-3)+3) < 0\) -> local max \(x=0\) -> \(f''(0) = 6(0 + 3)>0\) -> local min. Ok
1) Always start with : put points of \(f\) that are easy: the roots, the intercept. 2) draw the missing part using the info in \(f'\) and \(f''\).
Kinda can you show me what you do to graph it? I have like 5 minutes before the exams that's the most I can get atm
first step: a few points |dw:1369666161790:dw|
then join using use \(f''\) at the extrema (-3 and 0) |dw:1369666278751:dw|
join in a healthy way (without forgetting hte inflexion point) |dw:1369666362664:dw|
use that order: 1)fixed points, 2)concavity at extrema 3) join. (pay attention to inflexion point, but that is less important than the rest)
