Take the derivative of the function f(x) and set it equal to zero. Solve for x
f'(x) = 4  9x^2. = 0
4 = 9/x^2
x^2 = 9/4
x = +___ or  ___
That tells you where the maxima and minima are. The second derivative tells you which it is. It is a maximum where f'(x) = 0 and f''(x) is negative.
This is basic important stuff. You should be asking how to do them, not what the answers are. Otherwise you won't learn the subject.
