f(θ) = 2cos(θ) + (sin(θ))^2

- Critical Numbers -
**MathMate**, Saturday, December 4, 2010 at 7:06pmCritical point:

A critical point at the interior of the domain of a function is the point where the derivative is*zero*or*undefined*.

f(θ) = 2cos(θ) + (sin(θ))^2

does not have any undefined points for θ∈ℝ.

So we only need to find the values of θ which make f'(θ)=0.

Differentiate f(θ) and equate to zero. Solve for*all*roots for the equation and these are the critical points.
