Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What I would do is: 1) Differentiate the function, 2) Find the critical numbers (considering where \(f'(x)=0\), and the interval of \(\small (1,\infty)\) 3) Find which critical number has maximum output.  But you are not familiar with that method, are you?
