It all looks good except for 7. (Which, by the way, you could have checked on your own by simply multiplying it back out.)

Look at the sign on the -2x. It should be positive since you are subtracting \$\displaystyle x^4 - 2x^3\$ on the second line.

DivideBy0
I don't like the question wording... I'd be more comfortable with

4. Find the local extrema

5. Find the zeros. Of course, there are infinite solutions to \$\displaystyle y=3x^2-11x-20\$.
