Absolute Maximum at (4.29 mi, 115 ft.) Equation: (4.19 < x < 4.31) y = -7075.6x3 + 90406x2 - 384972x + 546450 First Derivative: -21226.8x2 + 180812x -384972 Zero: 0= -21226.8 (x -4.31715) ( x- 4.20095) So x = 4.31715 and x = 4.20095 are zeros of the derivative Justification: X (-∞,4.20095) y Decreasing + (4.31715,+∞) Decreasing (R² = 0.9771)

Since f’(x) is a parabola and it is negative, because to the left of point x had a positive slope and to the right had a negative slope we can deduce that this is an absolute maximum Reflection: The equation used to describe this situation has an r2 value of 0.9771 because it’s not a perfect r2 value this caused the point to be a little bit off.

Point of inflection At (3.83mi, 88 ft.) Equation: (3.73 < x < 4.03) y = 561.93x3 - 6705.3x2 + 26711x – 35416 First Derivative: 1,658.79x2 – 13,410.6x + 26,711 Zero: (R² = 0.9957)

0=1658.79 (x-4.52948) (x-3.55509) So x =4.52948 and x=3.55509 are zeros of the derivative

Since f’(x) is a parabola and it is positive the graph is decreasing until it hits the point of inflection and then from there, the graph begins to increase. Reflection: The equation used to describe this situation has an r2 value of 0.9957 because it’s not a perfect r2 value this caused the point not to be exact.

Relative/Local Minimum At (3.21 mi, 66 ft.) Equation: (2.95 < x <3.31) y = -3,828x4 + 47928x3 – 224,859x2 + 468,507x – 365,704 First Derivative: -15,312x3 + 143,784x2 – 449,718x + 468,507 Zero: 0= -3 (5104x3 – 47928x2 + 149906x – 156169 So x = 2.9749, x= 3.1436, and x= 3.2718 are the zero derivatives Justification: X (-∞,2.9749) y Increasing (3.2718, +∞)

Since f’(x) is a stretched out negative cubic, because to the left of point x had a negative slope and to the right had a positive slope we can tell that this is a local minimum. Reflection: The equation used to describe this situation has an r2 value of 0.9249 because it’s not a perfect r2 value this caused the point to be close but not exact.

Absolute Minimum At (2.69 mi, 65 ft.) Equation: (2.38 < x <2.79) y = -1712.4x4 + 17992x3 - 70715x2 + 123226x – 80256 (R² = 0.9514) First Derivative: -6,849.6x3 + 53,976x2 – 141,430x + 123226 Zero:
0= 6849.6 (x-2.86142) (x-2.60828) (x-2.41047) So x = 2.41047, x= 2.60828, and x= 2.86142 are the zero derivatives

Since f’(x) is a stretched out negative cubic, because to the left of point x had a negative slope and to the right a positive slope we can tell that this is an absolute minimum. Reflection: The equation used to describe this situation has an r2 value of 0.9514 because it’s not a perfect r2 value this caused the point to be a little bit off.
