Please help with this. I need the first derivative of f(x)=4(x+squareroot (x(8x)) and then the second derivative of this to show by the second derivative test that it is a local maximum. This is difficult to put into form here and I hope I have got it right. Many thanks.

Again, that all makes sense. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. I did get the derivative you show, but then divided through by 6 to get at the stationary points. Was that wrong? I'm only looking for a critique please, not

How do you get m=0? from taking the second derivative? does c=1? Can you check my work on how I get the derivative of R=M^2(c/2m/3) NEXT R=1/2(CM^2)1/3(M^3) NEXT dR/dM=CMM^2. I checked in the back, and that was the answer for

R=M^2(c/2m/3) dR/dM=CMM^2 I found the derivative. Now how would I find the vale of M that maximize the derivative dR/dM? set it to zero, and solve for m. You get two solutions. Use the second derivative to see which one is the

Find the first and second derivative  simplify your answer. y=x/4x+1 I solved the first derivative and got 1/(4x+1)^2 Not sure if I did the first derivative right and not sure how to do the second derivative.
