I 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
