    stauionary points on the curve y = x^2 e ^ -x
    y' = xe^-x

    so x=0 and x=2

    y"= 2x(e^-x) + - e^-x(2)

    at 0,0 max point

    at 2,0.541 min point

    i have done the working out for finding min and max just cba typing it out, just simplified everything down for here

    Don't use decimals. Leave it in exact form.

    x=2, y = 2^2(e^-2) = 0.5414311329 there is no exact form

    ..........


    Yes there is. You literally wrote it out right after the equals sign on y.
