Homework Help: Find the minimum/maximum

Posted by Lena on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 8:11pm.

The question is as followed:

y=-3x^2 + 4x

This is how I solved it:

y=-3x^2 + 4x
y= -3 (x^2 + 4/3x)
y= -3(x^2+4/3x +4/9) + 4/3
y= -3 (x+2/3)^2 + 4/3

The answer sheet said that x = 2/3 but wouldn't it equal -2/3 because there is a -3 before the bracket?
