    I read your statement as
    f(x) = 12x^(2/3) - 4x
    then
    f '(x) = 8x^(-1/3) - 4
    = 0 for max/min

    8/x^(1/3) = 4
    4x^(1/3) = 8
    x^(1/3) = 2
    x = 8
    then f(8) = 12(8)^(2/3) - 4(8)
    = 48 - 32
    = 16

    Can you take it from here?

    remember that the function is concave up when the second derivative is positive and
    concave down .....

    When the second derivative is negative
