Rewrite as .

Pull terms out from under the radical, assuming positive real numbers.

Substitute the values of which cause the derivative to be into the original function.

Simplify each term.

Remove parentheses around .

Raising to any positive power yields .

Subtract from to get .

The domain of the expression is all real numbers except where the expression is undefined. In this case, there is no real number that makes the expression undefined.

Since there are no values of where the derivative is undefined, there are no additional critical points.
