Find the local maximum of f(x)={ log(x) } / x . I tried but could only find local minima .After first derivate making it equal to 0,i got only one solution i.e., x=e and this solution gave local minima.Please help me in finding local maxima

y= logx/x
we see that domain is (0, inf)
dy/dx= f’(x)= (1 – logx)/x^2, which is positive for x less than e and negative for x greater than e. at x=e, it is 0.
hence by first derivative testx= e is the local (as well as global in this case!) maxima.
kindly approve :)

Dear student 
You are correct , X = e will be tha ans , 
You yourself told the explanton , 
Good Luck 
Cheers
