a) You need to perform the first derivative test , hence you should find first derivative such that:
`f'(x) = 12x^2 + 12x - 24`
You need to solve the equation f'(x) = 0 such that:
`f'(x) = 0 =gt 12x^2 + 12x - 24 = 0`
`x^2 + x - 2 = 0`
`x^2 + x - 1 - 1 = 0 =gt (x^2-1) + (x-1) = 0`
(x-1)(x+1+1) = 0 => x - 1 = 0 => x = 1
`x + 2 = 0 =gt x = -2`
You need to use the signs rule for a quadratic function, hence, between the roots, the values...
