uzumakhi Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
and then take f'(x)=0

x=pi/4 isnt it?

uzumakhi Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no we have to take the value from 0 to 2

then hw ??

if x is between 0 to 2pi, then x= 3pi/4 is correct.

AravindG Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
k then hw we find local maxima and local minima ?
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
local only means 'in that interval' , here 0 to 2pi
 2 years ago

AravindG Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so what are maxima and minima here ?
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so here u'll have only one value , at x=3pi/4 find f(x) when x=3pi/4
 2 years ago

AravindG Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
also at x=7pi/4 we have only one value so f'(X)= ives 2 values for x isnt it?
 2 years ago

AravindG Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
f'(X)=0 gives 2 values for x isnt it?

oh yes! i missed that. now its even simpler..... find the second derivate, what u get ?

AravindG Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
sinx +cos x

whats the use of taking second derivative ?

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
to know which point is max. or min. , u know how ?
 2 years ago

AravindG Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
is it by substituting 3pi/4 and 7pi/4 in f''(X) and getting the sign to tell which is maxima and minima?
 2 years ago

AravindG Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
k gt it !!!
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes, if f''(x) > 0 , then max or min ?
 2 years ago

AravindG Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
3pi/4 is max other is minima !!
