Question 05 (c) 

FullSolution Problems. In questions 28, justify your answers and show all your work. Simplification of answers is not required unless explicitly stated. Let

Make sure you understand the problem fully: What is the question asking you to do? Are there specific conditions or constraints that you should take note of? How will you know if your answer is correct from your work only? Can you rephrase the question in your own words in a way that makes sense to you? 
If you are stuck, check the hint below. Consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! 
Hint 

The first derivative was needed in part (b) and has already been computed. Take the derivative of that function: 
Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used the hint, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Solution 1 

Found a typo? Is this solution unclear? Let us know here.
Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. From the initial form of the derivative, as computed in part (a), we find that the second derivative is 
Solution 2 

Found a typo? Is this solution unclear? Let us know here.
Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. Using the compact form of the derivative, as computed in part (b), we find the second derivative by taking the quotient rule:
