To differentiate the function f(x), we must use the product rule. We then set the derivative equal to zero and solve for x. The graph of f has horizontal tangent lines at x equals zero and negative three To find if these point are local minimums or local maximums, we must evaluate the derivative of the function at a point greater than zero, a point between zero and negative three, and a point less than negative three.
