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

OK, this is a total disaster.

y=(2x^{3}+x^{2}+x+3)/(x^{2}+2x)

2. Relevant equations

To find inflection points, we need to take the second derivative and solve it for x.

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to find first derivative, and it looked horrible. The first derivative is

(2x^{4}+8x^{3}+x^{2}-6x-6)/(x^{2}+2x)^{2}

So I am not sure if I made a mistake in doing the first derivative.

Or maybe my approach is totally wrong?...
