When F is given by its graph, therefore, we need to look for the x-intercepts of the graph of F and then check if the graph of F is decreasing (for a local maximum) or increas- ing (for a local minimum) as the graph passes through an x-intercept. Applying these criteria to f, g and h we see that the graphs of all of f , g and h cross the x-axis at least once in (0 , 4), but because of the way these graphs change sign only f and g have a local minimum on (0 , 4). keywords: local maximum, first derivative test, graph, local extrema CalC4c18c 50:03, calculus3, multiple choice, < 1 min, wording-variable....
