y = x^3  x^2  6x = 0(x+2)(x3)
y' = 3x^2  2x  6
y' = 0 at approximately 1.7, 1.1 (1 + sqrt(19))/3.
Knowing what we do about the shape of cubics, we can say that a local max is at x=1.1, and a local min is at x=1.7
Note how the given intervals correspond to exactly one "hump" of the graph, so the local min/max is the min/max for that interval.

I don't understand the y' stuff. I'm only in algebra. Is there another way?
