Question:
(1 pt) Let
on the interval
. Find the absolute maximum and absolute minimum of
on this interval.
The absolute max occurs at
?
The absolute min occurs at
?
The absolute max is supposedly x = -1 and I do not know what the absolute min is. I use the two "edges" of the constraint and since when I solved for x I already got what the "edges" of the constraint then I determined the two "edges" to be the values to optimize with but I just do not understand what is going on. In addition, my calculator says (-1)^(2/3) does not exist but algebraically, I determined it to be = 1; who's right. me or the calculator? (My work is attached)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
