To find the points of inflection of ( f(x) = x^{1/3} e^{3x} ), we need to determine where the concavity changes.

First, calculate the second derivative of ( f(x) ) and set it equal to zero to find the potential points of inflection.

The first derivative of ( f(x) ) is: [ f'(x) = \frac{d}{dx} \left( x^{1/3} e^{3x} \right) ]

Using the product rule and the chain rule, we find: [ f'(x) = \frac{1}{3} x^{-2/3} e^{3x} + x^{1/3} \cdot 3 e^{3x} ]

Simplify this expression: [ f'(x) = \frac{1}{3x^{2/3}} e^{3x} + 3x^{1/3} e^{3x} ]

Now, differentiate ( f'(x) ) to find the second derivative: [ f''(x) = \frac{d}{dx} \left( \frac{1}{3x^{2/3}} e^{3x} + 3x^{1/3} e^{3x} \right) ]

Using the product rule and the chain rule again, we get: [ f''(x) = \frac{2}{9x^{5/3}} e^{3x} - \frac{1}{3x^{5/3}} e^{3x} + \frac{1}{x^{2/3}} \cdot 3 e^{3x} + 3x^{1/3} \cdot 3 e^{3x} ]

Simplify this expression: [ f''(x) = \frac{2}{9x^{5/3}} e^{3x} - \frac{1}{3x^{5/3}} e^{3x} + \frac{3}{x^{2/3}} e^{3x} + 3x^{1/3} \cdot 3 e^{3x} ]

Now, set ( f''(x) ) equal to zero and solve for ( x ) to find the potential points of inflection. Then, check the concavity around these points to confirm if they are points of inflection.

After solving ( f''(x) = 0 ), the points of inflection are obtained.

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.
