find the critical numbers of this function... g(y) = (y − 2)/(y^2 − 2y + 4)....I found the derivatives...but not sure the next step

8 years agoequate the derivate to 0 and see what values you get for y

8 years agoJust set it equal to zero and solve

8 years agofor the numberator or denomentor?

8 years agohuh?

8 years agoBoth.

8 years agothe whole thing( the derivative)

8 years agonumerator?...

8 years agoWhere it is zero and undefined.

8 years agosuppose you got y/(y+1) as the derivative, you equate it to zero meaning y/(y+1) = 0

8 years agoFor that example. y/(y+1) you would consider y=0 and y=-1. Since you want where it is zero and undefined.

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

8 years agoOf course, what did you differentiate?

8 years agoif 'a' is the derivative that you found , set it equal to =0 a=0

8 years agoi did the denominator

8 years agohonestly i can do fraction thats the only thing i hate in math... haha

8 years ago*cant
