B

## SOLUTION…

The maximum value of a curve is simply a point on the peak of the curve where dy/dx = 0

So we need to:

• Find dy/dx,
• Perform dy/dx = 0, and solve for the value of x,
• Substitute this value of x into the original equation to obtain the maximum or minimum value.

If y = 3x² – x³ then:

### Now for the right answer to the above question:

1. Option A is incorrect.
2. Option B is correct.
3. C is incorrect.
4. D is not the correct answer.

## QUICK TIPS…

• The maximum or minimum value of a function is the value of y at a point where slope is zero, that is, dy/dx = 0
