### Assignment 6

Find the extremes of the function:

on the interval . Verify whether they are maxima or minima by using the second derivative.

### Solution

The derivative of the function is:

The equation:

has the following solutions on the given interval:

, or

We calculate the second derivative:

For we have and thus there is maximum in this point.

For we have and thus there is minimum in this point.

Voor we have and thus there is maximum in this point.
