Find the maxima and minima of the following functions on the indicated intervals:
a. f(x) = x^3 - 7x + 6 on the interval [0,4].
b. f(x) = sinx + 2cosx on the interval [0, 2(pi)]
To find the min or maximum of the functions we need to take the derivative of the functions and set the equal to zero.
a) f = x^3 -7x + ...
In this solution, the maxima and minima of functions are investigated. All calculations and steps are outlined.
