c) Calculate the second derivative and determine if the function is concave or convex on its
domain. If not, where is it convex and where is it concave?
First i have to derivate
Then i get 1/x - 4x^-2 = 0 Mr F says: The second term coresponds to the derivative of 4/x, whereas the function you posted says x/4 ... So which is it meant to be?
How do i go further now?
Thanks for the help
