    F(x)=-x^4+12x^3-58x^2+132x

    The concentration of a drug, f(x), in parts per million, in a patients's blood x hours after the drug is administered is given by the function.
    I need to make a graph of the following:

    a) how many hours after the drug is administered will it be eliminated from the patients's bloodstream
    b) how long will it take after the drug is administered for it to reach peak concentration in the patient's bloodstream
