1) The graph of f' (the derivative of f) is shown below. Classify the smallest critical number for f.  I chose local maximum. [attachment=1:1v2qu8aw]1.gif[/attachment:1v2qu8aw] 2) The graph of f ' (the derivative of f) is shown below. Classify the smallest critical number for f.  I chose neither. [attachment=0:1v2qu8aw]2.gif[/attachment:1v2qu8aw] Are these correct?

The first graph has two critical points, the smaller belongs to the local maximum, indeed. The second graph has only one critical point, so it is the smallest itself, isn't it?
