Describe what happens to the graph on [1, 4] Beyond [1, 4], for all x, tendency is: We need a way to describe the points where the graph of f turns: from up to down, from down to up. Calculus Home Page Problems for 3.1 Title: student response (3 of 13) 3.1 Extrema on an Interval Definition of Extrema: Let f be defined on and interval I containing c. Note that I can be open or closed.) ( 1. f(c) is a minimum of fon I if f(c) < f(x) for all x in . I 2. f(c) is a maximum of fon I if f(c) > f(x) for all x in . I The maximum and minimum values are extreme values. Note that these are values of f (or y), not values of x. The minimum and maximum on the interval are called the absolute minimum and absolute maximum. Extreme Value Theorem
If f is continuous on a losed interval [a, b], then f has both a c minimum and a maximum on the interval. Definition of Relative Extrema: 1. If there is an pen interval contain c on which f(c) is a maximum o , then f(c) is called a relative maximum of f. Or f has a relative max at (c,f(c)). 2. If there is an pen interval contain c on which f(c) is a minimum o , then f(c) is called a relative minimum of f. Or f has a relative min at (c,f(c)).
