**Steve**, Thursday, November 22, 2012 at 7:38pmf = 2/3 x^3 + 3/2 x^2 - 2x + 5

f' = 2x^2 + 3x - 2

f'' = 4x + 3

f has min/max at f'=0, or x= -2 or 1/2

f''(-2) < 0 so f has a maximum there

f''(1/2) > 0 so f has a minimum there

From what you know about the general shape of cubics, this should make sense.
