What occurs in the graph of f at the point (1,−7)? I believe the answer is that (1,-7) has a maximum point judging by the second derivative shown above. Am I correct?

Thank you, I was once struggling this new course, but thanks to people like you, I can actually learn what I did right or wrong without having to pay for it online. By the way,does this website have a youtube channel by any chance?
