I am trying to help an A level pupil.
The question is:-
Find the stationary point on the curve y = e^x / sq. root x ; and say whether it is a min or max.
I have tried this both ways and keep getting the answer 2/3 and min. value. It seems I'm missing something at the point where you take logs, but I can't see it.
I know that graphically the answer is 1/2 and min. value.
Can anyone show me the corect algebraic procedure and get the answer 1/2.
Thanks.
