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.
