9. Find all relative extrema. Use the Second Derivative Test if applicable.

g(x) = x^2(6-x)^3

First find the derivatives:
Applying the chain rule:
g'(x) = 2x(6-x)^3 + 3x^2(6-x)^2(0-1)
g'(x) = 2x(6-x)^3 - 3x^2(6-x)^2

The second derivative is
g"(x) = 2(6-x)^3 + 2x*3(6-x)^2(0-1) - 3*2x(6-x)^2 - 3x^2*(6-x)(0-1)
g"(x) = 2(6-x)^3 - ...
