A cubic polynomial function f is defined by:

f(x) = 4x^3 + ax^2 + bx + k

where a, b, and k are constants.

The function f has a local minimum at x= -1, and the graph of f has a point of inflection at x= -2.

a) Find the values of a and b

b) If ∫ (from 0 to 1) f(x) dx = 32, what is the value of k?

I found a=24 and b=36

i don't know about B
