Applications and Examples
Graph Does the function appear to have an absolute minimum value? Confirm your answer with calculus.
Step 1 of 3</p>
In this problem, we have to graph the function and find absolute minimum value.
Step 2 of 3</p>
Differentiating with respect to , we get
For the critical points, we need to solve
Also changes the sign from negative to positive at .
Therefore the absolute minimum occurs at and the value is .
