My question asks me to select a graph that fits this description, however I keep getting it wrong. I know that I'm to pick a graph with 1 critical point, and that vertical tangent lines count as crit. pts, but My first two selections were wrong... Question: How would graph look like If f is a continuous function on (?4, 4) such that (a) f has exactly 3 critical points, (b) f has exactly 1 local maximum, (c) f''(x) > 0 on (?4, ?2), (d) f''(x) < 0 on (0, 2), (e) (0, 1) is an in?ection point, (f) f'(x) < 0 on (2, 4).

What do you mean by a critical point? Do the 3 critical points include the local maximum? And if you have options, it's better you take a picture of the question sheet and upload it to some image posting website and link it here. Here is a recommended website to do so http://imageshack.us/
