Find the coordinates of the relative extrema for http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...leafs/asdf.jpg and determine if the point is a relative maximum or a minimum point. Thanks in advance!

I hope that you know how to find the extrema and minima

(If you don't, tell us)

first derivative is:$\displaystyle 5-e^x$

critical point is $\displaystyle ln5$

second derivative is :$\displaystyle -e^x$

value of second derivative at critical point is $\displaystyle -5< 0$

hence it is a maxima(at ln5)

Keep Smiling
