How do i find the maximum or minimum value of a function to the nth degree? We've only done this for a quadratic function/equation in my class, but how would u find this for a higher degree such as x^3, x^4 or x^n? Does it follow the pattern of a power function in that x^4 is similar to x^2?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
