1. ## differentiating help

I just want to check this is correct:

Find the coordinates of the points on the curve f(x) = x^3 - 6x^2 + 7x

Do i just differentiate it then multiply the x by 2 or is it more complicated than that?

Set $f(x) = 0$ to find the x-intercepts.

It's y-intercept is 0.

(If that is what you mean... I'm not sure what you're saying)

The coordinates of what?

The answer to your literal question is $(x, f(x) )$, which is so trivial this can't possibly be your question.
