To find the stationary points of a curve, you need to:

- Compute the derivative of the function representing the curve.
- Set the derivative equal to zero and solve for the values of ( x ) that satisfy this equation.
- The values of ( x ) obtained in step 2 are the potential stationary points.
- To determine whether each potential stationary point is a minimum, maximum, or point of inflection, you can use the second derivative test or evaluate the behavior of the function around each point.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
