Use calculus to find the exact location of the local maximum that is near x=75 show that there is a local minimum at x=0.
I cannot show the grow however i can tell you that the y range goes by .5*10^116. However after that the exponents remain at 117 rather than 116. The x range goes by 15 starting at -30 going up to 150. Also I can see that the local max according to the graph is at coordinates (80, 3.1*10^117).
How would i figure this out? Would I find the slope of the tangent line?
