The Wrath of the Forgetful Yard
its not really that formal
I'm so angry! I stepped in the forgetful yard and forgot how to do math!
Let's fire this yard! Then I'll help you with your math!
The problem is h(x)=2x3-3x2-180x-24
Oh! The problem asks us to find the local extremas!
The best thing is to use a graphing tool to graph the function.
Oh! I can use Desmos!
Ok, I see them. Now what?
Once you get the function graphed look for possible "hills" or "valleys" that are formed.
Now find the X values that those "hills" or "valleys" fall on. Those are your answers.
So the answers to my function would be a Local Minima at x=6 and a Local Maxima and x=-5?
Oh my gosh, thank you so much. I can't believe I forgot how to do that.
No problem, I am here for you.
