Consider the function f(x)=sin(x)+(1/4)*sin(2x) on the interval [0,2pi]. Find numbers a, b and c so that a < b < c and f(x) is concave in one direction on each of the intervals (0,a),(a,b),(b,c) and (c,2pi).

Find numbers a, b and c so that a < b < c and f(x) is concave in one direction on each of the intervals (0,a),(a,b),(b,c) and (c,2pi). set each factor equal to 0 and solve for x , then determine the concavity of each interval between the critical values.
