To find the points of inflection, we need to calculate the second derivative of the function, f(x)=2x^3 + 8x^2, and then solve for values of x where the second derivative equals zero or is undefined.

First derivative: f'(x) = 6x^2 + 16x Second derivative: f''(x) = 12x + 16

Setting f''(x) equal to zero and solving for x:

12x + 16 = 0 x = -16/12 x = -4/3

So, the point of inflection is at x = -4/3.

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.
