Sketch the graph of a function f that is continuous on [1, 5] and has the given properties.Absolute maximum at 2, absolute minimum at 5, 4 is a critical number but there is no local maximum or minimum there.

To determine

To sketch:

The graph of a function f that is continuous on [1, 5] using the given properties.

Explanation

1) Concept:

Using the concept of absolute maximum and minimum, local maximum and local minimum

2) Given:

f is continuous on [1, 5], and graph properties are absolute maximum at 2, absolute minimum at 5, and 4 is a critical number, but there is no local maximum or minimum there.

3) Calculation:

Absolute maximum at x=2 means the function has the greatest y value at x=2  on the given interval 1, 5.

Absolute minimum at x=5 means the function has the smallest y value at x=5 on the given interval 1, 5
