1. How to find the turning point and type of turning point in the equation y = (2/3)x^4 + 1/3
2. how to find equation of axis of symmetry of y = (2/3)x^4 + 1/3
2) My book said that the axis of symmetry is x = 0. Maybe my book's wrong?
What's the difference between the turning point and the stationary point of inflection?
A point where a function changes from an increasing to a decreasing function or visa-versa is known as a turning point (i.e. gradient =0) However with turning points the concavity remains the same. In a stationary point of inflexion the gradient is 0 but the concavity changes, thus not changing from an increasing to a decreasing function or visa-versa.

Find the values of m if (2m-3)x^2 + (5m-1)x + (3m-2) = 0 has 2 solutions
A piece of wire 12 cm long is cut into two pieces. One piece is used to form a square shape and the other a rectangle shape in which the length is twice the width.
a. If x cm is the side length of the square, write down the dimensions of the rectangle in terms of x
b. formulate a rule for A, the combined area of the square and rectangle in cm^2, in terms of x.
c. determine the lengths of the two pieces if the sum of the areas is to be a minimum.

Is it normal to find maths hard even after tution? I'm in this scenario
The graph of y = x^4 - 2x - 12 has 2 x-intercepts
a. construct a table of values for this polynomial rule for x = -3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3
b. Hence state an exact solution to the equation x^4 - 2x - 12 = 0
c. State an interval within which the other root of the equation lies and use the methods of bisection to obtain an estimate of this root correct to 1 decimal place
I get how to do part a and b, but i'm finding part c extremely challenging and confusing.
If you know a place where the polynomial is positive and another place where it is negative (and the root you already found does not lie between these two places), then the other root lies between these two numbers. You can then use the bisection method (check your textbook if you haven't learnt it yet).
I read my textbook but I still don't understand the bisection methods.
Are there any examples in the textbook using bisection method? See this page if not (there's an example in it): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bisection_method .
Can someone please help?
