Identify the critical points and find the maximum and minimum of the given function on the given interval I.

a) G(x) = (1/5)(2x^3 +3x^2−12x); I = [−3,3]
b) g(x) = 1/(1+x^2); I = [−3,1]
c) f(x) =x/(1+ x^2); I = [−1,4]
d) a(t) = cost; I = [π,5π]

Step 1


On differentiating the above equation, we get


Step 2

Calculations for the critical value are shown on the board

Therefore, the critical point is at x=1,-2 which lies in the interval I=[-3,3]


Step 3

Now, calculating its maximum and minimum point

  • The function has a minimum value at x = a  if f '(a) = 0 and f ''(a) = a po...
