Re: Hello!

Hi {7/3};

Welcome to the forum!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Are you sure?  I think that means it's all down hill from here.

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)).

hi {7/3}

How are you today?

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