find all relative extrema of the function 

f(x)= -4x^2+3x+6


Expert Answer

Step 1

The given function is f (x) = -4x^2+3x+6.

In order to find the relative extrema of the function f, take first derivative on f (x) and equate it to zero and obtain the critical points as follows.

Step 2

Compute the second derivative of the function and substitute the critical point in the second derivative to check whether at the critical point of the function is maximum or minimum.

Step 3

Compute the maximum value at...
