CHAPTER 4 APPLICATIONS OF DERIVATIVES 4.1 EXTREME VALUES OF FUNCTIONS 1. An absolute minimum at x c , an absolute maximum at x b. Theorem 1 guarantees the existence of such œœ # extreme values because h is continuous on [a b]. ß 2. An absolute minimum at x b, an absolute maximum at x c. Theorem 1 guarantees the existence of such extreme values because f is continuous on [a b]. ß 3. No absolute minimum. An absolute maximum at x c. Since the function's domain is an open interval, the œ function does not satisfy the hypotheses of Theorem 1 and need not have absolute extreme values. 4. No absolute extrema. The function is neither continuous nor defined on a closed interval, so it need not fulfill the conclusions of Theorem 1. 5. An absolute minimum at x a and an absolute maximum at x c. Note that y g(x) is not continuous but œ still has extrema. When the hypothesis of Theorem 1 is satisfied then extrema are guaranteed, but when the hypothesis is not satisfied, absolute extrema may or may not occur. 6. Absolute minimum at x c and an absolute maximum at x a. Note that y g(x) is not continuous but still œ has absolute extrema. When the hypothesis of Theorem 1 is satisfied then extrema are guaranteed, but when the hypothesis is not satisfied, absolute extrema may or may not occur. 7.

Graph (d), since this is the only graph representing a funtion that is differentiable at b but not at a. 14. Graph (a), since this is the only graph that represents a function that is not differentiable at a or b.
