f(x)=e^x-x

(a) at what x-values does f have relative extrema?

(b) find the exact value of -1 to 1 on an interval f(x)dx.

(c) show that f does not have any inflection points.

f'(x) = e^x - 1

= 0 for extrema of the function

e^x = 1

x = 0

b) ??

c) for points of inflection, f''(x) = 0

f''(x) = e^x

e^x = 0

has no solution.

look at the graph of y = e^x, it never touches the x-axis
