Find the absolute maximum and minimum values of the following function on the interval [1,3]
Do i make a table of values or what do i do?
Thanks to everyone who helps
The endpoints are
The derivative is
(use the Quotient rule).
Set this equal to 0 and solve for x.
Substitute these values back into f(x) to determine their corresponding y-values.
So the absolute maximum is 15 which occurs at x = 3, and the absolute minumum is -12 and occurs at x = .
