absolute max and min
find the absolute maximum and absolute minimum (if any) of the given function on the specified interval:
f(x)=x^2 + 4x + 5; -3=<x=<1
the book has:
max (1, 10)
min (-2, 1)
The book is a terrible resource, its not as clear as someone explaining it to you...as always I appreciate any help...thanks!
Find your second derivative, then find for what values of x your second derivative equals 0. Calculate the f(x) with the values of x you find, the highest f(x) is your absolute maximum and the lowest is your absolute minimum.
