Hey fourhire.
Hint: What did you obtain for the first derivatives of this function?
Find the largest and smallest values taken on by the function on the interval 0 < X < 2
I understand the procedure, finding the crit points first in which i got x = 1 for the real values.
Max = 1.66637 Correct to 4 significant figures.
Min = ?
I cant seem to get the minimum value though please help!
f'(x) = 0 helps you find the turning points which can be either a minimum, maximum, or point of inflexion.
Then for this particular x (or x's) that satisfy f'(x) = 0, the minimum satisfies f''(x) > 0, the maximum f''(x) < 0 and the point of inflexion satisfies f''(x) = 0 for the particular turning point for that particular x.
