    i know we have to find the derivative and set it to zero

    i got x= 8 and x= 2/9

    now to have the intervals, im a little lost on...

    would there only be 2 intervals?

    or 3? 0-2/9 then 2/9-8 and 8-infinity?

    critical numbers

    yep... so on [0, 4] substitute x = 0, 2/9 and 4 into the original equation and find the corresponding values...

    isn't 4 a y?

    and what 8?

  18. mathcalculus

    because the 2 critical numbers are 8 and 2/9

    well (a) is asking for the location of that min and max on the interval x = 0 to x = 4 and as x = 2/9 is a critical point...you don't know its nature

    ooooooh, 8 would be the other one

    let me try it

    so the value x =0 is f(0) = 2 x = 2/9 f(2/9) = 3.76 x = 4 f(4) = ?

    -334

  24. mathcalculus

    so the max is 3.76 and min is -334?

    thats correct...

    so just test x = -9, x = 8 and x = 9... and see what happens... I think x = 2/9 remains the max

    its an add interval since x = -9 gives a very large negative number
