## Question:

Find the x-value of all points where the functions defined as follows have any relative extrema. Find the values of any relative extrema. {eq}f(x) = \frac{x^2 - 2x + 1}{x - 3} {/eq}

## Finding Relative Extrema

The relative extrema of a function are the local maximum and minimum values of that function. To find the relative extrema, we need to find those values of {eq}x {/eq} that satisfy {eq}f'(x)=0 {/eq}.
