Signature Question 1. Consider the function f ( x ) = x 4 x 2 . Follow these steps to graph the function. (a) The domain of f is x 6 = 0 (b) The xintercept(s) of f are f ( x ) = 0 x 4 = 0 x = 4 (c) The derivative of f is f = f ( x ) = x 2 (1) ( x 4)(2 x ) x 4 = x (8 x ) x 4 = 8 x x 3 (d) The critical point(s) of f are f ( x ) = 0 8 x = 0 x = 8 1 (e) The second derivative of f is f 00 = f 00 ( x ) = x 3 ( 1) (8 x )3 x 2 x 6 = 2( x 12) x 4 (f) The point(s) of inflection are Since f 00 ( x ) < 0 for x < 12 and f 00 ( x ) > 0 for x > 12 12 is the only inflection point...
