f(x) = 3xe, 0 ≤ x ≤ 2^{-8x}

I don't know how to find the absolute maximum and minimum values.

Could you show an example of how to do so, step-by-step, for this question (or a similar one)?

get the first derivative and set it equal to zero .search for the solution wich is 1/8

there is the max.....the other min is 0.

see the attached graph
