Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[f \prime(x)=0 ~gives~x=5,8\] \[f \prime \prime \left( x \right)=\left( 5x \right)*11\left( x8 \right)=5xx+8=132x\] at x=5 \[f \prime \prime \left( x \right)=1310=3>0\] so at x=5,there is minima at x=8 \[f \prime \prime \left( x \right)=1316=3<0\] so there is maxima at x=8 dw:1441336369747:dw
