Example 11

Find the critical points of f (x) = 2x4 - 32x2

Solution : Since f (x) is a polynomial in x, x Î R.

Now f ' (x) = 8x3 - 64x

\ For critical points, f ' (x) = 0 Þ 8x3 - 64x = 0

8x (x2 - 8) = 0


Example 12

Find all critical points of f (x) = sin x + cos x on [0 , 2 p]

Solution : Given that for f (x) = sin x + cos x , x Î [0, 2 p]

Now f ' ( x ) = cos x - sin x

for critical points, f ' ( x ) = 0 Þ cos x - sin x = 0

\ cos x = sin x Þ tan x = p/4
