Check the critical points (x = 1 and x = 1) Second Derivative Test f’’(-1) = +, so x=-1, y=-½ is a local minimum f’’(1) = -, so x=1, y = ½ is a local maximum Find the inflection points of ƒ. Check x = 3 and x = 0 and x = 3 f changes concavity at these points, so all are inflection points. Inflection Points at (- 3, - 3/4), (0, 0), and ( 3, 3/4) (Doc #011p.44.01t)
