1. why is this causing difficulties?

B'(x) = 2/∛x - 1
B'(x) = 0 at x=8

as you will recall,
B is increasing where B' > 0
B is concave up where B" > 0

2. Please don't assist me anymore cuz you always seem to make me feel bad. I work hard. Every now and then I get a few problems that I'm unsure of if I'm doing correctly. Geez

3. Sorry. I might be less grumpy if you actually showed some of that hard work.

Given the info I provided above,

(a) B is increasing where B' > 0, so
2/∛ - 1 > 0
2/∛x > 1
2 > ∛x
8 > x
So, B is increasing on (0,8)
B is decreasing on (-∞,0)U(8,+∞)

(b) B'= 0 at x=8, so that's a max or a min.
B" = -2/(3x^(5/3))
B"(8) < 0, so B(8) is a max.
There are no minima.

(c) B" is always negative, so B is always concave down: (-∞,+∞)

4. There is a local minima actually, and 8 is not the local max
