`h(x)=sqrt(1-7x^2)`      (i)

Differentiate  (i) ,with respect to x

`h'(x)=(1/(2sqrt(1-7x^2)))(-14x)`     (ii)

`h'(x)=0 if x=0`

Differentate (ii) with respect to x

`h''(x)={-7(sqrt(1-7x^2)-xd/(dx)(sqrt(1-7x^2))) } /(1-7x^2)`

``

`h''(x)}_{x=0}=-7<0`

`` Thus    x=0 is a critical point and it is point of maxima.
