How do I find extrema of #f(x) = x^7 - 14x^5 - 4x^3 - x^2 + 3# on a graphing calculator?
Fastest way would be to use the derivative function.
Whenever the derivative, also called the slope function reaches
You can find the derivative by remembering:
While numbers without
Going from there, the derivative of your function is:
Enter this in your GC as
Now, on your GC you go find the zeroe-values (there's a menu for that)
Since your equation is 7th grade (because of
