4. Let h be a function defined for all x 0 such that h( 4) = -3 and the derivative of h is given by 05 h x = x2 - 2
for all x 0.
x (a) Find all values of x for which the graph of h has a horizontal tangent, and determine whether h has a local
maximum, a local minimum, or neither at each of these values. Justify your answers.
(b) On what intervals, if any, is the graph of h concave up? Justify your answer.
(c) Write an equation for the line tangent to the graph of h at x = 4.
(d) Does the line tangent to the graph of h at x = 4 lie above or below the graph of h for x > 4 ? Why? 5. A cubic polynomial function f is...
