I am having trouble finding the critical points of
I found the derivative to be .
My next step was to equate my derivative to zero, but that does not seem to work as my x cancels out. Usually I would take the x-value(worked out by equating the derivative with zero) and substitute it into the original equation to get a y-value. This would then be the critical points. Is there anyone who could maybe help me out (maybe with an example or so) as I also have to find the intervals where the function is increasing and decreasing?
