    Calculating exact coordinates of stationary points on a graph

    Hey,

    Bit stuck on how to do this. Is it asking me to add up all the stationary points then come up with a value?

    Thanks

    The position of stationary point can be represent by vectors
     r_1 = (a_1,b_1,c_1,...,n_1) \text{ in } \mathbb R^n
    To add up all the N stationary points then come up with a value
    \sum_{i=1}^{N} r_i You add coordinates by coordinates. So you only get a "value" if you work in  \mathbb R .
    That's the way I understand the question but it is vague in my mind so could be anything else.
