Yes, so what work do I need to show how I got a Absolute Maximum at pi/2 and 3pi/2

**Calculus**

To show how I got the answer, is the work sufficient? f(x)= sin^2(x) f'(x)=2sinx(cosx) = cosx(2sinx) cosx=0 sinx=0 f(0)=0 f(pi)=0 f(pi/2)=1 f(3pi/2)=1 Absolute Maximum is at pi/2 and 3pi/2

**Calculus**

On the closed interval, [0, 2*pi], find the absolute maximum of the function f(x)= sin^2(x)

-3/2 feet per minute I meant

**Calculus**

Is this right? 1.5 ft = dr/dt 2x dx/dt + 2y dy/dt = 0 2(18)(2) + 2(24)= 0 72 + 48 dy/dt = 0 48 dy/dt = -72 dy/dt = -72/48 = -3/4 feet per minute

**Calculus**

36 dx/dt + 48 dy/dt = 0 48 dy/dt = -36 dx/dt dy/dt = -.75 or -3/4
