Math-1A(S3) Fall 2002, Calculus Midterm #2 Review (Chapter 4), 11-03-02 Key Notes Concepts : absolute (global) maximum/minimum; local maximum/minimum; extreme values; critical numbers (points); inflection points; increasing/decreasing; concave upward/downward; asymptotes (horizontal, vertical, slant, etc.); Rolle’s Theorem and Mean Value Theorem; L’Hospital’s Rule; Newton’s Method; Antiderivative; Cost and Revenue in Economics 1 Extreme Values A function f has a global (absolute) maximum (minimum) at c if f ( c ) f ( x ) ( f ( c ) f ( x )) for all x in the domain of f . A function f has a local maximum (minimum) at c if f ( x ) f ( x ) ( f ( c ) f ( x )) for all x in some open interval containing c . Extreme Value Theorem. If f is continuous on a closed interval [ a, b ], then f attains a global (absolute) maximum value f ( c ) and a global (absolute) minimum value f ( d ) at some numbers c and d in [ a, b ]. Fermat’s Theorem. If f has a local maximum or minimum at c , and if f ( c ) exists, then f ( c ) = 0. A critical number of a function f is a number c in the domain of f such that either f ( c ) = 0 or f ( c ) does not exist. The Closed Interval Method To find the global (absolute) maximum and minimum: 1. Find critical numbers ( f ( c ) = 0 or f ( c ) does not exist), and the corresponding critical values f ( c ); 2. Find the values of f at the endpoints of the interval; 3. The largest of the values from Step 1 and 2 is the global (absolute) maximum and the smallest is the global minimum.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
