ANSWERThe point of inflection is EXPLANATIONThe function given to us is At the tipping point, So we need to differentiate the given function and equate to zero.We are using the chain rule of differentiation, we get,We equate to zero to get,divide it by 3.Solve for x to get,we substitute this value of x in the function to get the corresponding y value of the inflection point.Therefore, the turning point is C is the correct answer.
