Hi:

I am asked to find the x-coordinate of B from y=12x⋀½ - 2x⋀3/2

I am sure this requires finding the turning points by differentiation dy/dx on the equation which gives 6x⋀-1/2 - 3x⋀1/2.

But how do I factorize this to find the x-coordinate? Or is my thinking wrong?

Thanks

⋀ - means raised to the power of
