Also with calculator, graph f(x), and determine all the possible maxima/minima coordinates to within two decimal points.


i did this and got my answers but i doubt they are right, can anyone get the answers if you have a TI-83-84 please? thank you.

    Could you post your answers if you need a confirmation?

    Also, calculate f'(x) and substitute the x-coordinate of the maximum/minimum to see if f'(x)=0. This will be another way to confirm your answer.

    my answer is :

    maxima: x= -1.56
    minima:x=-1.29, x=-1.25

  • pre-calculus -

    Therefore x=-1.56(approx.) is a maximum or minimum.
    f"(-1.56)=-7.386 >0
    Therefore x=-1.56 is a maximum.

    f'(-1.29)=-2.03 ≠ 0
    f'(-1.25)=-2.3605 ≠ 0
    Therefore x=-1.29 and x=-1.25 are not maxima nor minima.

    Check your graph without forgetting that the function is undefined at x=0.

  • pre-calculus -

    oh thank you so much, so x=-1.56 is a maxima, and we don't have a minima?
