I know the second derivative is

100x^2*e^-5x^2-10*e^-5x^2

but I just can not figure this one out.

Thank you for your help!

Then this for second derivative and graph

**Damon**, Friday, March 28, 2014 at 8:11pmNote that you did the second derivative correctly. It is easier to write it their way y" = 10e^(-5x^2)(10x^2-1)

It is zero at x = +/- .316

**Damon**, Friday, March 28, 2014 at 8:12pmso it is positive for x>.316

and for x <.316
