g(t) = 2/t

The function is the same as writing g(t) = 2 t-1,

and that's not too difficult to differentiate:

g'(t) = -2 t-2

g'(1/2) = -2 (1/2)-2 = -2 (4) = -8

you have to first find the derivative of the original function. You then make the derivative equal to zero and solve for x.

How do you calculate critical points of derivatives?

The "critical points" of a function are the points at which the derivative equals zero or the derivative is undefined. To find the critical points, you first find the derivative of the function. You then set that derivative equal to zero. Any values at which the derivative equals zero are "critical points". You then determine if the derivative is ever undefined at a point (for example, because the denominator of a fraction is equal to zero at that point). Any such points are also called "critical points". In essence, the critical points are the relative minima or maxima of a function (where the graph of the function reverses direction) and can be easily determined by visually examining the graph.

Can you use the equation given below to find the second derivative of pi divided by 6 if fx equals cscx?

pi divided by 6 is a constant and so its first derivative is 0. And since that is also a constant, the second derivative is 0. It is not clear what f(x) = csc(x) has to do with that!

Why the second derivative negative for Maxima?

When you solve for the 2nd derivative, you are determining whether the function is concave up/down. If you calculated that the 2nd derivative is negative, the function is concave down, which means you have a relative/absolute maximum, given that the 1st derivative equals 0. To understand why this is, think about the definition of the 2nd derivative. It is a measure of the rate of change of the gradient. At a maximum, the gradient starts positive, becomes 0 at the maximum itself and then becomes negative, so it is decreasing. If the gradient is going down, then its rate of change, the 2nd derivative, must be negative.

How do you figure out the intervals of increasing and decreasing of the function y equals x divided by square root of x squared then plus one?

The intervals are determined by when the derivative is positive or negative, because the derivative is the slope and a negative slope means the function is decreasing. The function y=(x/sqrt(x2))+1, however, can be rewritten as y=x/absolutevalue(x) + 1, and as such will be represented as a pair of parallel lines, y=0 for x<0 and y=2 for x>0. As the lines are horizontal, the function is never increasing or decreasing.
