find the second derivative of F(x)=3e^-2x(^2) to find the inflection points. I am trying but I don't think I'm finding the first derivative correctly.

  • calculus -

    clarify what your expression is,

    if am reading it as
    F(x) = (3e^-2) x^2 or (3/e2) x^2

  • calculus -

    The 3e is raised to -2x and. The -2x is raised to the 2
