Find all relative extrema of the function. (If an answer does not exist, enter DNE.)
f(x) = x4 − 32x + 8
relative maximum (x, y) =

relative minimum (x, y) =

Step 1

Given, help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosef(x) x4-32x + 8 = 0 Let's find the critical point of the above function. For finding the critical point, we find all the x for which f'(x) = 0. d(x") using dC f'(x) 4x3 32 пх^-1 dx dx For critical point, f'(x) = 0 =4x3 32 = 0 => x = 2 fullscreen
Step 2

Also,

... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseNow we will use the double derivative test to check whether x = 2 is relative maxima or minima d(x") using f"(x) = 12x2 пх*- dx f"(2) 12(2)2 = 48 As f"(2)>0 => x= 2 is a point of relative minima Аnd the miniтит value — f (2) 24-32(2)8 - 40 Also, relative maxima of f (x) does not exist fullscreen
