Inflection points
posted by Kay .
Consider the function f(x)=12x^5+30x^4–300x^3+2. f(x) has inflection points at (reading from left to right) x=D,E, and F. where D is___, E is____, and F is____.
I took the second derivative of the function and got 120x(2x^2+3x15). From that I set it to equal and tried finding x. One is obviously zero.
Then I tried using the quadratic formula to get the other two x's. I got [3 + sqrt(129)]/4 and [3  sqrt(129)]/4
However I plugged the answer into my online homework site and it says that is incorrect. Can someone help?

Writeacher, thanks for the tip...I was never really sure whether I was supposed to type my actual class subject or the subject material. If it's ok, I might submit this question again with a different school subject.
