Homework Help: calculus

Posted by help on Thursday, July 5, 2012 at 8:25pm.

hey I just wanted to make sure that I was doing this problem correctly.

The question says to graph the function f given by f(x)=x^3+3x^2-9x-13 and find the local extremer.

So here's what I did:
f(x)=x^3+3x^2-9x-13
F^1(x)=3x^2+6x-9
= 3x(x-3)
x=0
x=3
I put those two xes back into the original equation and got: (0,-13) (3,-4) and then graphed. Is this the proper way to look for local extremer?
