Given,
y=x4x
The domain of given function is [0,).
Differentiating with respect to x, we get
dydx=1412x
=12x
Now critical points are the points at which first derivative is zero or not defined.
So to find critical points, solve the first derivative by equating it to zero. That is,
dydx=0
12x=0
2x=1
x=2
x=4
& also the first derivative is not defined at x=0.
Therefore critical values are x=0 & x=4.
Step 2
Now,
dydx<0 to the left of x=4 & dydx>0 to the right of x=4.
Therefore x=4 is the point of local minima & local minimum value is,
y=444
=4-8
=-4
Therefore local minimum and absolute minimum value is -4 occurs at x=4.

x 11 ( mod 84 )
x 23 ( mod 36 )
I have the bulk of the work done for this;
x = 11 + 84 j
x = 23 + 36 k
11 + 84 j 23 ( mod 36 )
84 j 12 ( mod 36 )
12 j 12 ( mod 36 )
j 1 ( mod 36 )
j = 1 + 36 n
Thus this system is true for any x of the form
x = 11 + 84 ( 1 + 36 n ) = 95 + 3024 n
