2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
why am i getting this wrong? i am pretty sure about everything and nothing else seems to fit in there..
maybe the last one? but it says decreasing so it must be local min

Re-examine the last question and the criteria for maximum and minimum values. Since $g'(x)$ is decreasing, that means that $g''(x) < 0$ which tells you?
