(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Determine whether the curve x = 3t^2, y = e^2t+1 is concave up or concave down at the point (3, e^3)

thanks for any help with this one.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

know i need to take the double derivative. Also that would be 6

and 4e^2t+1

what point do i put back into the double derivative. Also, do I use 3 and e^3? they represent x, y, so do they plug into the equation appropriately, or back into t? please help.
