Consider f(x)=200+8x^3+x^4. find the intervals on which function is increasing or decreasing, the local max and minimu values, the intervals of concavity and the inflection points

Increasing where f' > 0
Decreasing where f' < 0
f'(x) = 24x^2 + 4x^3 = 4x^2(6+x)
Concave up where f'' > 0
Concave down where f'' < 0
f'' = 48x  12x^2 = 12x(4x)
Max where f' = 0 and f'' < 0
Min where f' = 0 and f'' > 0
