## Explanation & Answer

Yo, what's up? 😛 Taking a quick look at your question right now.. Anything I should know before I begin?
Hey there! Here are the answers 😇

Q1)
To find the relative extrema we first find the first derivative of the function and then
find the values of x that makes the first derivative zero or undefined. These values f x
are the critical values of the function.
d
(6𝑥1/3 + 3𝑥 4/3 ) = 2𝑥 −2/3 + 4𝑥1/3 = 0
dx
∴ 2𝑥 −2/3 (1 + 2𝑥) =

2(1 + 2𝑥)
=0
𝑥 2/3

∴ x=−

1
2

To make the derivative undefined the denominator equals to zero and hence, x = 0.
∴ x=−
We need to test the first derivative
