Is there a function such that, f is continuous on (1,5), reaches a maximum on (1,5), but does not reach a minimum on (1,5). Does such a function exist or is it impossible?

Thanks man. I kinda thought about it, but it looks to me like that function is not possible since it does not reach a maximum at (1,5). Is that right?
