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

    k then hw we find local maxima and local minima ?

    local only means 'in that interval' , here 0 to 2pi

    so what are maxima and minima here ?

    so here u'll have only one value , at x=3pi/4 find f(x) when x=3pi/4

    also at x=7pi/4 we have only one value so f'(X)= ives 2 values for x isnt it?

    f'(X)=0 gives 2 values for x isnt it?

    is it by substituting 3pi/4 and 7pi/4 in f''(X) and getting the sign to tell which is maxima and minima?
