: : : : 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!!!

: 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.
