Determine the critical points for this function: x/x^2-1.
The answer is that there are no critical points, but i dont see how that is possible
I suspected that. First, a value of x is NOT a critical point. A critical point is a point, (x,y), on the graph of the function, such that the derivative is 0 or does not exist. Here, x= 1 or x= -1 does not give a critical point because there is no point on the graph of y= f(x) which x= 1 or x= -1.
