If y= (x^2+20)/(x4) Find all critical Numbers.
After get f' i got the answer 5/4. What did i do wrong or is that the critical number?

critical number: where y'=0 or y' undefined.
Anyway, y' = (x^28x20)/(x4)^2
y'=0 when x = 2,10
y' undefined when x = 4
how did you come up with 5/4 ?

The critical numbers of the function: f(t)=7t^(2/3)+t^(5/3) f'(t)=14/3t^(1/3)+(5/3)t^(2/3) I got 0 as a critical number but it is hard for me to factor the f'(t). Whats the other critical number?

2x^3+3x^2120x to find the critical numbers I took the derivative which is 6x^2+6x120 so divide by 6 to simplify x^2+x20=0 so the critical numbers will be (4,0) and (5,0) but its wrong I don't know y?
