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

The gradient of the curve is:

[tex]\frac{9-x^{2}}{(9+x^{2})^{2}}[/tex]

Find the turning points on the curve

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Well for a turning point the gradient of the curve = 0

[tex]\frac{9-x^{2}}{(9+x^{2})^{2}} = 0[/tex]

but now what to do. in the mark scheme it seems that they have multiplied by the denomintoar, but wont that loose roots?

Thanks
