Unformatted text preview: ma, global maxima/minima, or none of these. Extreme Values No3ce: Extreme values occur at either a criBcal number of f or at an endpoint of the domain. (However, not all criBcal numbers and endpoints correspond to an extreme value.) Also note: By definiBon, rela3ve extreme values do not occur at endpoints. Finding Local Maxima and Minima (First DerivaBve Test) Assume that f is conBnuous at c, where c is a criBcal number of f. If f ’ changes from + to - at x=c, then f changes from increasing to decreasing at x=c a...
