: : 12x^3-12x^2?

: determine GCF (which is 12x2)

: then use distributive property to factor

: 12x2(x-1)

: ...are you sure you're in calculus???

There are 2 more problems with the homework that go along with what you did above.

3) When the domain is restricted to -2 <= x <= 2, what is the global maximum and global minimum value of f(x) over this domain? Name both the value of the function and the x coordinate where the extreme value occurs.

4) Using Xmin=-2 and Xmax=2 and appropriate values of Ymin and Ymax, sketch a useful graph of y=f(x). Be sure to label with both the x and y coordinates all local extrema, global extrema, and inflection points.

THANK YOU! THIS IS DUE TOMORROW AND I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO ON THESE LAST 2!!!
