    First find the first partial derivatives (fx) and the first partial derivative (fy). fx= 3x^2-6y-24=0 fy=-6x+6y=0 From these two equations you find the two critical points which are (-2,-2) and (4,4) After that you use the second derivative test (D=fxxfyy-(fxy)^2) In the case of (-2,-2) D<0 and so it is a saddle point. In the case (4,4) D>0 and fxx<0 and so it is a minimum point
