where V= 12 V. We attempt to extremize the expression by working through the dP/dR3= 0 condition and do not find a value of R3that satisfies it. (a) We note, then, that the function is a monotonically decreasing function of R3, with R3= 0 giving the maximum possible value (since R3< 0 values are not being allowed).
