F(x) has a Global (absolute) max (or minnimum) IFF f(c) >= f(x) for all of the values on the domain F(x) has a Local (relative) max (or min) IFF f(c)>=f(x) for all values of x in some open interval containing c Extreme Value Theorem: If f is continuous on a closed interval [a,b] then f must have both a global max and a global min

Unformatted text preview: Theorem If f(c) is a local max/min point and f'(c) exists, then f'(c) = 0 (turning point) Critical Point Def: any point in the interior of the domain where the derivative f'(c) = 0 or f'(c) = DNE When looking for max or min points, we must check all of the critical points and the endpoints...
