2. Use the graph of f(x) below to answer the given questions.
(a) Where f
0
(x) = 0 x = −3, x = 2
(b) Where f
0
(x) is undefined. x = −1, x = 5
(c) Find all local maximum and minimums of f(x) local Minimum at x = −3 local Max at x = 5
(d) Find all the absolute maximums and minimums of f(x)
None
3. Using the graph and your answers to the previous question, do the following;
label all the critical points on a number line, determine the sign of the derivative of x between each
critical point. How does this information on the number line help you determine which critical
points correspond to local maximums, minimums, or neither.
