What is the critical number of the following problem:
x^10(x - 4)^9
I got 4,0,40/19
Indeed. I find it an appalling fact that so many university students are so sloppy when writing their questions...almost unbelievable, and it's a pity: I've flunked students for their nonsensical writing, and it's a maxima for me: when reading a paper/exam, anything that isn't clear is gonna be treated as erroneous, let alone scratches, arrows sending you two pages back or forwards, feet-writing, etc.
I'd rather have students with lousy spelling (which can be explained by many factors other than sheer ignorance) than without any capability to write two sentences making some sense.
