    is it asking for the equation of the tangent
    or whether the gradient is positive or negative


    thanks in advance

    It's asking you to find the coordinates of the turning points. You need to differentiate that equation they gave you, which gives you the gradient function.

    Since they ask you to find the coordinates when gradient is zero, you equate the differentiated function to zero and solve.
