Find the absolute maximum of p(x)=x2 −x+2 over [0,3].


Expert Answer

Step 1

We have to find absolute maximum of f(x) in given interval .

F(x) is given as:

Step 2

We will use following rules  to find derivative .

Rules are given below:

Step 3

With the help of above rules we have find derivative and then put f\'(x)=0 to find critical points.

Now we will check f(x) at boundaries of interval and critical point (lies in gi...
