# Given the formula (x) = x2 + 8x 12 (a) Determine the maximum and the corresponding value of x

## Question:

ƒ(x) = –x2 + 8x – 12

(a) Determine the maximum and the corresponding value of x for this function analytically (i.e., using differentiation).

(b) Verify that Eq. (13.7) yields the same results based on initial guesses of x0 = 0, x1 = 2, and x2 = 6.
