I have a differentiated a term and ended up with

x^2+1 all over x^2. I need to work out the turning points or stationary points of this equation. I have equated this to 0 but end up with x^2=-1 which gives me no values what are the turning points?

Either you differentiated it wrong, or there arenâ€™t any.

Hey!

Did you differentiate the function correctly?

That has no stationary points.

What do you think? Refer to definitions

Its not an injection if two elements map onto the same element?

If two DIFFERENT elements map onto the same 'element' then its not injective.

(Original post by Xdmakdmadsak)
so this function will be surjective. So what would the inverse function be and how would you calculate that?
Inverse functions exist only if the function itself is injective. (or more strictly, it must be injective and surjective)

How would you workout the general expression using undetermined coefficients of this f(m)

Have you learnt about it?? Just try to employ it here in the exact same fashion.

Look at your notes!

Denote

Define

(*)

(**)

Then (**) - (*) means

Now compare coefficients.

How can you compare coefficeints to that?

Whats f(n+1) as a polynomial?

Then simplify the RHS to a similar form (ignoring the terms past the 3 dots) and compare the coefficients of n^2, n, and const term.
Also reason why the rest of the A_i terms must be zero.

is the quadratic also know as homogeneous differential equation or is that something else?

Something else. A differential equation involves derivatives first of all... we donâ€™t have that here.
