Question

Let g(x) = 21x^5 - 116x^4 + 186x^3 - 328x^2 + 369x + 60. Find g'(x) and use this to find the stationary values of g(x). After finding the critical values, determine any local extrema using the FindMinimum and FindMaximum commands; state any critical values and local extrema in a text cell (x-values only).

Please explain this is Wolfram Mathematica input terms! I got most of this, but I dont know what to put for the critical values or local extrema

Answer #1

First we will be defining the function g(x):

- g[x_]:=21x^5 - 116x^4 + 186x^3 - 328x^2 + 369x + 60

Then we find the derivative of g(x) and put the derivative equal to zero in order to find the critical points. This can be done in two ways :

- d=D[g[x],x]
- NSolve[d==0,x]

Another way to find the critical points will be :

- NSolve[D[g[x],x]==0,x]

To find extrema of the function, here x,0,100 implies that the range of x displayed will be from x=0 to x=100. Also, we assume that the critical points lie in this range, if not then the range of x can be changed accordingly :

- FindMinimum[g[x],{x,0,100}]
- FindMaximum[g[x],{x,0,100}]

f(x)= -4x/ x^2+4
i think i found the first dervivative: f'(x)=
(4x^2-16)/(x^2+4)^2
but im not sure if thats right and then i get confused after
that on how i find the critical numbers: x=____
i think i got x=2 for the critical number
then i am supposed to find where it is increasjng and
decreasing and i dont understand the steps on how to find that out-
i understand the number line but how do you plug in the
numbers...

Given the function g(x)=4x^3−24x^2+36x, find the first
derivative, g'(x)
g′(x)= ???
Notice that g'(x)=0 when x=1, that is, g'(1)=0
Now, we want to know whether there is a local minimum or local
maximum at x=1, so we will use the second derivative test.
