I recently asked a question similar to this, but that question only wanted a local maximum. Now I have one asking for values to get a certain max AND min.
Problem: Find values of a, b, and c so that the function has a local maximum at the point (-2, 22) and a local minimum at the point ( 1, -5).
So far, I've taken the derivative, which is , then I solved for b, which is . I then set b to 0 and solved for x, getting x = 0 and .
Then, plugging in -2 for x, I got a = 6.
I don't think what I'm doing is right. How do I solve this taking into account both a max AND a min?
Could you please show your steps and explain a little about what you do and why? Thank you SO much! I'm really struggling with these problems.
