The curve y=x^3 +10x^2 -kx -2 has a stationary point at x=-8.
Find the x coordinates of the other stationary points
Oh don’t worry I found out how😂

Do you know how to differentiate? Differentiation is the rate of change on the graph. A stationary point is when the rate of change is 0. To find the stationary points, you diffrentiate the equation and equate it to 0. This gives the x coordinates of the other stationary points.

Yes it is good. No need to find y coordinate of stationary point since it is not required. Once you find k, plug it in dy/dx and solve for x. So, your answer becomes x= 8

Looks correct to me. x = ±8
