Where it is zero and undefined.

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?

if 'a' is the derivative that you found , set it equal to =0 a=0
