For the function g(x)=(1-2x)^2(x-3) find
a) the x and y intercepts
b) the first and second derivatives,
c)the intervals on which the function is increasing and decreasing,
d) inflection points and concavity.
e) finally sketch the function
For a) I got a y intercept of (0,-3) and x-intercepts of (3,0) and (1/2,0).
b)For the first derivative I got
f'(x)= -4(1-2x)(x-3) + (1-2x)^2
f''(x)= 12x^2-32x+ 13
Can somebody please confirm whether the above two answers are correct please?
The problem I'm having is with the question c) and d). How do I figure out what the intervals are in order to test where the function is increasing or decreasing?
