Problem 79 Hard Difficulty

Show that the inflection points of the curve $ y = x \sin x $ lie on the curve $ y^2 (x^2 + 4) = 4x^2 $.


y=x \sin x \Rightarrow y^{\prime}=x \cos x+\sin x \Rightarrow y^{\prime \prime}=-x \sin x+2 \cos x, \quad y^{\prime \prime}=0 \Rightarrow 2 \cos x=x \sin x[\text { which is } y] \Rightarrow \\
(2 \cos x)^{2}=(x \sin x)^{2} \Rightarrow 4 \cos ^{2} x=x^{2} \sin ^{2} x \Rightarrow 4 \cos ^{2} x=x^{2}\left(1-\cos ^{2} x\right) \Rightarrow 4 \cos ^{2} x+x^{2} \cos ^{2} x=x^{2} \Rightarrow \\
\cos ^{2} x\left(4+x^{2}\right)=x^{2} \Rightarrow 4 \cos ^{2} x\left(x^{2}+4\right)=4 x^{2} \Rightarrow y^{2}\left(x^{2}+4\right)=4 x^{2} \text { since } y=2 \cos x \text { when } y^{\prime \prime}=0

The problem is showed that the inflection points off the crew. If why is able to access him? Sign ax Lye on the curve, My squire. Times Square plus Or, as they call Chu for acts coy. The first two computers degenerative off this function when she is equal to signed. X US Axe Ham School Science. Second derivative is equal to cause i X Our school's lying max US Axe Times Negative Jax, which is equal to two ham school sign X minus X Times Science. If the point back Cyril Y. Zero is an inflection point on behalf, why zero is equal to act? Cyril Hams Signac Ciro on DH to co sign AC Cyril minus zero. Scientific hero. Is he called to zero from you? Christian one Behalf. Why zero overact. Cyril is equal to sign. I feel from the equation to half two hands cause I Act zero. It's going to AC Cyril Sign zero, Which is he goto y zero. So you have Y zero or AC Cyril Squire us. Why zero over to squire? This is equal to sign AC Cyril Square plus school sign AC zero square which is equal to one. Then we must apply Full X squire for inside behalf y zero squared hams for us, Axiron Square is equal to flunk like serious coin. So we have axial y zero satisfies this equation, so slice this group.
