Homework Statement


Find out the quotient derivative i.e. the derivative of polynomial upon polynomial and then find the minima and maxima.[/B]

##W\left(z\right)=\frac{{4z+9}}{{2-z}}##

Homework Equations



##\left( \frac{f}{g} \right)' = \frac{f'\,g - f\,g'}{g^2}##

The Attempt at a Solution


##W'\left(z\right)=\frac{{4\left({2-z}\right)-\left({4z+9}\right)\left({-1}\right)}}{{{{\left({2-z}\right)}^2}}}##
##=\frac{{17}}{{{4-4z+z^2}}}##

I have found the quotient derivative. Some body please help me how to find the minima and maxima

Zulfi.

How does one normally find the maxima and minima? Also, try plotting this function and see what you get.

Thread moved. Questions about derivatives should be posted in the Calculus section, not in the Precalculus section.
