Second Derivatives and Beyond

Example 1

For the function, use the First Derivative Test to determine if each critical point is a minimum, a maximum, or neither.

for 0 < x

Example 2

For the function, use the First Derivative Test to determine if each critical point is a minimum, a maximum, or neither.

f (x) = -x3 + 3x2 - 3x

Example 3

For the function, use the First Derivative Test to determine if each critical point is a minimum, a maximum, or neither.

Example 4

For the function, use the First Derivative Test to determine if each critical point is a minimum, a maximum, or neither.

Example 5

For the function, use the First Derivative Test to determine if each critical point is a minimum, a maximum, or neither.

f (x) = ex
