## Homework Statement

f(x)=x^3+bx^2+d given a critical point of (2,-4), solve for b and d

## Homework Equations

f'(x)=3x^2+2bx ?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I wasn't really sure where to go with this.

So I know that a critical point happens when f'(x)=0, and this point can be either a max, min, or extrema.

I tried making the derivative = to 0 and then subbed in the x value from the critical point of x=2. But i believe that this is definitely not right.

Any help is much appreciated, thank you.
