Definition of Extrema

Let be defined on an interval containing c1. () is the MINIMUM of on if ()() for all in .2. () is the MAXIMUM of on if ()() for all in .

f I f c f I f c f x x I f c f I f c f x x I

≤≥

The minimum and maximum of a function on an interval are the

extreme values,

or

extrema

, of the function on the interval. The minimum and maximum of a function on an interval are alsocalled the

absolute minimum

and

absolute maximum

on the interval.

()1,is continuous on [-1,2]

f x x f

= +

There exists aminimum at (0,1) and amaximum at (2,5)

2

()1,is continuous on (-1,2)

f x x f

= +

There exists aminimum at (0,1) but nomaximum exists

1,0()2,0is not continuous on [-1,2]

x x g x x g

+ ≠==

There exists no minimum buta maximum at (2,5)

The Extreme Value Theorem:

If is continuous on a closed interval [,], then has both a minimum and a maximum on the interval.

Definition of Relative Extrema (Hills and Valleys)

1. If there is an open interval containing on which () is a maximum, then () is calleda relative maximum of .2. If there is an open interval containing on which () is a minimum,

c f c f c f c f c

then () is calleda relative minimum of .

f c f

The plural of relative maximum is relative maxima, and the plural of relative minimum isrelative minima.

Guidelines for Finding Extrema on a closed interval

To find the extrema of a continuous function

f

on a closed interval[,],

a b

use the followingsteps:1.Find the critical numbers of in (,),

f a b

2.Evaluate

f

at each critical number in

(,),

a b

3.Evaluate

f

at each endpoint of [,],

a b

4.The least of these values is the minimum. The greatest is the maximum.Example 2 Find the extrema of
