Re: Hello!

Hi {7/3};

Welcome to the forum!


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Hello!

I meant,if first derivative is 0 and second derivative is -ve the point is local mamimum.Also if 2nd derivative is -ve for any x,y and z between them,(z,f(z)) is over the secant line of (x,f(x)) and (y,f(y)).

Re: Hello!

hi {7/3}

How are you today?

Doesn't it depend on where the points x, y, and z lie?
