**Damon**, Saturday, February 18, 2012 at 5:07pmI am only going to do one of them. That should give you the idea.

1. For what value(s) of x does f(x)=(x^2-16)^5 have a horizontal tangent?

---------------------------------

when is dy/dx = 0?

dy/dx = 5 (x^2-16)(2x)

when is that zero

When x = 0 obviously but also when

x^2 = 16

that is when x = 4 or x = -4

so

-4 , 0 , +4

a) x=-4,4

b) x=-4,0,4

c) x=0

d) x=0,4

Answer is B, x=-4,0,4
