Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0looks like no max but we only see part of the graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(3, 2) is the minumum but no maximum

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats the whole graph i think it just keeps going

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hold the phone. minimum means minimum value that y takes on. the minimum is not a coordinate. the minimum is a number. in this case it is 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is domain and range both of which have a minimum value in this case,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the only information you know is that if it is a function x=3 is the beggining of the domain but yo udon't have any range info

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This graph represents a function of x. The domain of a function is all permissable values of x. The range, all permissable values of y Hence minimum value of x = 3 and minimum value oy y = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hey gianfranco is what satellite said earlier true?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. this is a never ending source of confusion. the minimum is the output, not the input.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Of course, satellite is always right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example, if the function is \[f(x)=x^25\] the minimum value is 5

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the fact that this function takes on the value of 5 when x = 0 does not make the minimum (0,5) the minimum is a number, not a coordinate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok im going to take your word on it but what ecin is saying is reasonable too

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ah so what should i put as the answer??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it is better to acknowledge the point at which the graph takes a minimum vale which includses voth domain and range,

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a minimum. There is no max because the graph appears to be cut off and 'continues' though we can't see it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0um we kinda alread acknowledged that lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(x) = x^2 5 and it is said the minimum value is =5 and to be clear you are saying the minimum value is the y value then you are saying f(5) = (5)^2 5 which is not true. this implies 5 = 20

anonymous

smurfy14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ecin there was no equation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then there's no minimum

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you don't know what happens outside. You are garanteed a min domain xcoordinate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well given that the graph doesnt show which way it continues i think (3,2) is correct

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's my point exactly

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Look at the graph Smurfy the dot at the left hand side implies there ore no lower points on the graph in terms of numerical value, so give both x and y values for sheer safety :) The fact that there is no point on the right of the graph implies it goes on to infinity,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0gian you are right and based on http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcI/MinMaxValues.aspx example four the minimum is probably x=3

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Definitely not probably I can assure you :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well should i pout x=3 or a coordinate?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in example 4 . the x doesn't increase anymore showing you tahat theres o more inclrease or decrease

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do what you want. I'm tired of arguing.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Coordinate but remember to state that it is a definite minimum, and importantly also state that there is no maximum.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do you mean by definite minimum? and ok

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0he means i'm wrong, where i stand on my belief i'm right

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well Ecin, the question doesn't ask about extemum, os the point would at least be considered relative minimum.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's a local min for sure

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is getting a little heavy. Look at the graph. It is not complicated. It shows that the graph does not extend beneath the coordinate (3, 2) and also it does not 'appear' to have a resting place in the first quadrant .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the minimum value means the minimum output, not the minimum input. if your domain is all real numbers then there is no minimum input. so say that the minimum value of \[f(x)=x^25\] is 5 means this is the smallest output you can get. it does not say that the minimum possible value of x is 5, nor does it say what \[f(5)\] is

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you are taking calc you will frequently have to find the maximum or minimum value of a function. to do this you will probably have to find the value of x that gives it to you. say the minimum values occurs when x = 7. that does not mean the minimum value is 7. that means the minimum value is f(7) whatever that may be.
