Find cubic function from extremaFind a cubic function of the form f(x) = ax^3 + bx^2 + cx which has a local maximum at f(1) = 0 and a local minimum at f(3) = 2. El que pega primero pega dos veces. #2 20051023 16:50:03

Re: Find cubic function from extremaOK, I did it all on paper, and you do need the "d" term. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20051023 19:39:12
