: : : : 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!!!
: 1. Read T.Gracken's answer to your other question.
: 2. Read section of your textbook about "curve sketching."
: 3. TRY to do your homework & if you get stuck on some specific detail, explain what you tried & then ask about it. Don't expect us to do your homework for you. You won't learn anything from that.
I just need to know how to get started on those problems, a head start. Thanks.
