Tell us what you think the answer is, then someone will either confirm your answer or help you correct it.
Well, right away I eliminated choice C) because it doesn't satisfy g(0)=0. And, from here Im not sure what to do. I dont really understand what g '(4)=0 exactly means. Any feedback would be helpful
$\displaystyle g'(x)$ is the slope (or gradient) of $\displaystyle g(x).$ $\displaystyle g'(4)=0$ tells you that the gradient is zero when $\displaystyle x=4.$
ahh..so that would be represented by D right?
Correct.
thank you
