    2x^3+3x^2-120x to find the critical numbers I took the derivative which is 6x^2+6x-120 so divide by 6 to simplify x^2+x-20=0 so the critical numbers will be (4,0) and (-5,0) but its wrong I don't know y?

    Differentiate to find critical numbers and leave function in fully factored form. g(x) = (x^2+1)^5(x^2+2)^6 g'(x) = (x^2+1)^5[6(x^2+2)^5(2x)] + (x^2+2)^6[5(x^2+1)^4(2x)] g'(x) = 2x(x^2+1)^4(x^2+2)^5[6(x^2+2)(2x) + 5(x^2+1)(2x)]

    Please help!! *f(x)= x(x+6)^1/2 find two x intercepts. Then show that f'(x)=0 at some point between the 2 x intercepts. *Use mean value theorem for f(x)= x(x^2-3x+1) for interval [1,4] I FOUND DERIAVITIVE WHICH IS 3X^2-6X+1.THEN?
