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

The position of a particle moving along an x axis is given by x=12t^2-2t^3, what is the maximum positive coordinate, velocity and acceleration reached by the particle?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I took derivative of the quadratic and got V=24t-6t^2 and set it =0, then i solve for t and substituted in x=12t^2-2t^3 to get the max. positive coordinate.

But I dont know what to do to solve for the max velocity and acceleration
