CLASSIFY THE SMALLEST CRITICAL NUMBER FOR F

1) The graph of f' (the derivative of f) is shown below. Classify the smallest critical number for f. - I chose local maximum.



2) The graph of f ' (the derivative of f) is shown below. Classify the smallest critical number for f. - I chose neither.



Are these correct?

1. The critical numbers are at x = -2 and 1. Absolute maximum is at x = -2 and absolute minimum is at x = 1 (i.e. the second derivative).
2. The critical numbers are at x = 3 and 0.
