(a)

To determine

To find: On which intervals the function f(x)=12x44x2+3 is increasing or decreasing.

Explanation

Given:

The function is, f(x)=12x44x2+3 .

Calculation:

Obtain the derivative of f(x) .

f(x)=ddx(12x44x2+3)=12(4x3)4(2x)+0=2x38x

Set f(x)=0 and solve for x.

2x38x=02x(x24)2x(x+2)(x2)2x=0,x+2=0,x2=0

Thus, the critical numbers are x=0 , x=2 and x=2 . In the interval notation (,2)(2,0)(0,2)(2,)

(b)

To determine

To find: The local maximum and minimum values of the function f(x)=12x44x2+3 .

(c)

To determine

To find: The intervals of concavity and the inflection points of the function f(x)=12x44x2+3 .

(d)

To determine

To sketch: The graph of the function using the information obtained from part (a) to part (c).
