# What are the points of inflection, if any, of #f(x)=3x^5 - 5x^4 #?

The only inflection point is

A point on the graph where the inflection (concavoty) changes is called an inflection point.

To find the points of inflection, we need to find the second derivative of the function and set it equal to zero.

( f(x) = 3x^5 - 5x^4 )

First derivative:

( f'(x) = 15x^4 - 20x^3 )

Second derivative:

( f''(x) = 60x^3 - 60x^2 )

Setting the second derivative equal to zero:

( 60x^3 - 60x^2 = 0 )

( 60x^2(x - 1) = 0 )

( x = 0 ) or ( x = 1 )

So, the points of inflection are ( x = 0 ) and ( x = 1 ).

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.
