To determine

the local maximum and minimum values of the provided function.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 59E

The local maximum is 5.6 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information: the function provided in the question is,

  f(x)=x6x

From the provided information draw a graph using the graphing calculator,

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 3.1, Problem 59E

Local maximum value of f ( a ) on a graph of f is the highest value on an interval containing a . Therefore, the local maximum value on the provided graph of f is 5.6, at x=4 .

The local minimum value of f ( a ) on a graph of f is the lowest value on an interval containing a . The local minimum value on the provided graph is undefined as the function is increasing from -infinity.

Hence, the local maximum is 5.6 .
