From Christy: Hi guys, ok so I'm having problems with solving this equation since it's been so long I've done precal.
I have to find critical points so I have to find the derivative first. This is what I've done so far
s(t)= (t-6)^4 * (t+1)^2
t'= 4(t-6)^3*(1)*(t+1)^2+ 2(t+1)(1)*(t-6)^4
so this is where I got stuck, which is the algebra part. How can I simplify this to get the answer to figure out the critical points. Answered by Penny Nom.
From Dennis Dyer: My daughter has a math problem that I can't help her with. The problem is 21+2[3z+5(3z+8)] I can get the answer 101 +36z but I can't show her the correct way to write it out. Would you please show the correct way to show her work... Answered by Penny Nom.
