Hello, Jimmy!

This is avery sneakyproblem!

Set the derivative equal to zero . . .Given: .

Find the absolute extrema of the function on this interval.

We have: .

Then: .

Multiply by

. . Then: .

Critical point: .

Test the endpoints of the interval.

. .

. .

I would have written: .

Then I saw that is a vertical asymptote!

I found that: .

. . So there isabsolute maximum.no

But we do have an absolute minimum: .
