# Sketch the graph of f by hand and use your sketch to find the absolute and local maximum and minimum values of f. (Use the graphs and transformations of Sections 1.2 and 1.3.) f ( x ) = 1 2 ( 3 x − 1 ) ,    x ≤ 3

To determine

To sketch:

The graph of a function f by hand and then find the absolute and local maximum and minimum values of f.

Explanation

1) Concept:

Sketch graph of f, and then use the definitions of absolute and local maximum and minimum values of f

2) Definitions:

i. Let c be a number in the domain D of a function f. Then f(c) is the absolute maximum value of f on D if fc f(x) for all x in D and absolute minimum value of f on D if fcf(x) for all x in D.

ii. The number f(c) is a local maximum value of f  if fcf(x) when x is near c and local minimum value of f if fc fx when x is near c
