For f(x) and g(x) given below, find the following, f(x) = (x-1)^5, g(x)=1-6x a) (f of g)(x)= -7776x^5 b) (g of f)(x)= -6x^5+30x^4-60x^3+60x^2-30x+7 c)f(f(x)= d) f^2(x)=(f*f)(xx)= Im stuck on c and d

Find the extreme values of the function for the given intervals. 2x^3 21x^2 + 72x a) [0,5] b) [0,4] I have both the minimum values for both intervals which is 0. But I am unable to find the maximum. please help!!!

**Calculus (final question I promise)**

1. Use calculus and algebraic methods to do a complete analysis (i.e., intercepts, critical points, intervals of increase and decrease, points of inflection, intervals of concavity, local maximum or minimum points) for each of the following functions and then sketch the graph ...

Describe the intervals on which the following function is continuous. If not continuous, state "where" the discontinuity occurs and state the TYPE of discontinuity. f(x)= (x^2-x-12)/(x^2-6x+8) I just don't understand how to find the intervals. Thanks~
