Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and this time I realized my error from earlier.... just setting that f(x) = 0 is equilibrium which is not what we need so obtain the first derivative and set f'(x) = 0 to solve for critical points then pick a value between the intervals and plug it into f'(x) to see if it increases or decreases you will need to obtain the second derivative for concavity f''(x) = 0 and repeat the steps above to see if we have concave up or concave down.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I understand. It makes it hard for tutors to tutor properly when they dont know what the real problem the tutee is asking. Do they want us to explain everything in the concept? Or is there some certain part of the problem they are confused with?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oops, didnt see these comments until now. Either way, I also know how to get the first derivative of this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is: sqrt of x * (1/x)  (lnx) (1/2x^1/2) all over (sqrt of x) ^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Find the stationary point, I.E, f'(x)=0. Then check for adjacent points to see if the derivative is increasing or deacreasing nearby.
