Math 1a: Maxima and minima October 28, 2009 1. Find the global maxima and minima of the following functions on the given intervals. Remember that global maxima and minima are among endpoints of the interval, points where f is not differentiable, points where f is differentiable and f 0 is zero. a. f ( x ) = 10 x 3 - 17 x 2 + 8 x on [0 , 1] b. g ( x ) = | x | 3 on [ - 2 , 2] c. h ( x ) = ( x + 3 if x < 0 x 2 - x if x 0 on [ - 1 , 2] d. i ( x ) = x - 2 cos( x ) on [ - 2 , 0] 1
