2. Consider the following function:
f (x) = 25x2 (x − 1)(x − 2)2 for − 0.1 < x < 2.1
(a) Find all critical points of f (x). (Hint: Differentiate using the produst rule and
factorise.)
The critical points occur when f 0 (x) = 0 (or when f 0 (x) doesn’t exist, but that
doesn’t happen here).

25x(x − 2)[2x2 − 6x + 4 + x2 − 2x + 2x2 − 2x]
25x(x − 2)[5x2 − 10x + 4]
Solve the qudratic:

So we have 4 critical points:

x = 0, 2, 1 − √ , 1 + √

(b) Which critical points are relative minima? Which are relative maxima?
By the previous part we have:
1

f 0 (x) = 25x(x − 2)(x − (1 − √ ))(x − (1 − √ ))

(i) for x < 0, all 4 factors are negative so f 0 (x) > 0
2
(ii) for 0 < x < 1 −
(iii) for 1 −
(iv) for 1 +
√1

√1 ,

three of the factors are negative so f 0 (x) < 0
<x<1+
√1 ,
5
two of the factors are negative so f 0 (x) > 0
< x < 2, one of the factors are negative so f 0 (x) < 0
(v) for x > 2 all of the facrors are positive so f 0 (x) > 0
You could also determine the sign of f 0 (x) by picking any point on the above intervals and looking at the sign of f ’ on this point.
Using the first derivative test:
• (i)+(ii) and (iii)+(iv) tells us that x = 0 and x = 1 + √15 are relative maxima
• (ii)+(iii) and (iv)+(v) tells us that x = 1 − √15 and x = 2 are relative minima
(Alternatively we could have used the second derivative test.)
(c) Which of the relative minima is smallest? Which of the relative maxima is largest?

f (0) = 0, f (1 − √ ) = − √ ≈ −7.155, f (1 + √ ) = √ ≈ 7.155, f (2) = 0

So the largest relative maximum of f (x) is at x = 1 + √15 with a value
smallest relative minimum is at x = 1 − √15 with a value of − √165 .
