    Correct way to word Stationary Point answer

    Hi,

    What's the correct way to write the answer to a question that asks you to find and determine the nature of the stationary points for f(x)? Or will it be equally as correct so long as each point is written down and it's nature put next to it?

    Thanks

    The particular formatting probably varies with the text. For instance, what does your book mean by "the nature of" a stationary (or critical) point?

    For guidance on the formatting, look at worked examples in your text, and / or at the formatting displayed in your class notes (that you copied from the board during the lecture). When in doubt, mimic that.
