when you look at the graph of a function

say, f(x) = 5x^3 - 2x^2 + 3x - 1

will the point(s) of inflection always be equidistant from 2 critical points (ie the 2 nearest critical points)???

point of inflection -- point where the concavity changes from up to down / down to up

critical point -- point where the function changes from increasing to decreasing or decreasing to increasing
