Def. f has an absolute minimum at x = c if f ( x ) = x 2 1 6 ? f ( c ) is the of f on D . Together they are called 2 Def. A function f has a local (relative) maximum at c if there is an open interval I containing c such that for all x in I Def. A function f has a local (relative) minimum at c if there is an open interval I containing c such that for all x in I ex. Find all local and absolute extrema of the func tion f ( x ) sketched below. 6 ? 3 Let f ( x ) = ( x 2 2 x 1 p x 1 x > 1 . 6 ? Find the absolute maximum and minimum values of f ( x ) on each of the following intervals: [ 2 ; 1] ( 2 ; 1) [2 ; 5] (1 ; 1 ) Find any local extrema. 4 Extreme Value Theorem: If f is continuous on a closed interval [ a;b ], then f has at some numbers c and d in [ a;b ]....
