for #1: try 6*sqrt(37) for the max and -6*sqrt(37) for the min
I need some help finding the Max and Min of this function. As you can see I took the derivative and set it equal to zero. I know that I need the Critical Points in order to find the Max/Min, but I am wondering how I should isolate the x in order to do so. If I multiply out then I loose my x.
4(x - 5)^(2/3) has no critical point, so there is no "A"
also, the function is not defined for negative x, so asking what it is doing on (-oo, A) makes no sense
as for #1. the function has no local max or min, so i figured they want the absolute max and min, but you said that's wrong
Don't worry I appreciate your help. I will talk to Dr. Wichno tomorrow and ask him it there is a glitch in the system. I just got through dealing with one last week. I sat around for 7 hours trying to get a problem into the computer system, then I showed up Monday morning and he told us that there was a error in the latex software. This was pretty upsetting...
THIS IS WHY I HATE COMPUTER WEBWORKS. Jhevon no differentiation was involved for either of the two problems were were looking at. They wanted me to just take f(x) and set it equal to zero, not its derivative. Why would they even throw in a problem like this, when all that I have been doing for the last 2 months in computing derivatives? Hey at least we figured it out...
