I found the derivative of the function which is y'=-2/3x + 2

set it to 0=y'=-2/3x + 2

x=3

What do I do now?

**bobpursley**, Monday, March 5, 2012 at 8:19pmwhat is the second derivative of y?

y"=-2/3, which means that the curve is downward, so that is a maximum...

The curve is a parabola, with a max at (x=3), and has no absolute min.
