(b) local minimum, or

(c) point of inflection

**bobpursley**, Sunday, November 25, 2012 at 8:55pmSet f'=0

x=0,-2,5 for f' to be zero.

maximum is when f" is negative

a) f"=(x+2)(x-5)+x(x-5)+(x(x+2)

at x=0, f"=-10 so x=0 is max

b. f" at x=-2

f"=(0+ -2(-7) = positive, so at x=-2, it is minimum

c. f" at x=5

f"=0+0+35 positive, local maximum

check my calcs
