1. We can repeat the derivative operation: the second derivative f'' is the derivative of f', the third derivative f''' is the derivative of f'' , and so on. Find a function f such that f' and f'' are not the function 0, but f''' is the constant function 0.

2. Let f(x) and g(x) be functions with domain $$(0,\infty)$$. Suppose $$f(x)=x^2$$ and the tangent line to f(x) at x=a is perpendicular to the tangent line to g(x) at x=a for all positive real numbers a. Find all possible functions g(x).

You would probably be best off to repost the second one

If   f'''  = 0

then

f'' =k  \

k can be any6 constant but 6 is as good as another

f' = 6x+t

t can be any constant but -8 is as good as any other

f' = 6x-8

f=   3x^2 -8x + q

q can be any constant but 1 is as good as any other

f=   3x^2 -8x + 1

So there is one.

In fact any quadratic f function would work

I understand now!
