OpenStudy (anonymous):
Just set it equal to zero and solve

OpenStudy (anonymous):

the whole thing( the derivative)

OpenStudy (anonymous):
numerator?...

OpenStudy (anonymous):
Where it is zero and undefined.

OpenStudy (anonymous):
suppose you got y/(y+1) as the derivative, you equate it to zero meaning
y/(y+1) = 0

OpenStudy (anonymous):
For that example. y/(y+1) you would consider y=0 and y=-1. Since you want where it is zero and undefined.

i didnt do it that way..can you show me..all i did was derivative and got a bizarre answers

OpenStudy (anonymous):
Of course, what did you differentiate?

OpenStudy (anonymous):
if 'a' is the derivative that you found , set it equal to =0
a=0

OpenStudy (anonymous):
i did the denominator
