    left end point: f(0)= 3 critical points: x= 2/15 f(2/15)= 4.06074 x=8 f(8)= -1213 Right Point: f(4)= -589

    Okay you don't consider \(f(8)\) for the \([0,4]\) interval..

    It's apparent that \(f(2/15)\) is the maximum.

    And the minimum is going to be \(f(4)\)

    just 2/15? or do we write that the max as: 4.06074

    so the min has to be: -589

    I said \(f(2/15)\) which is equal to \(4.06074\)

    Now you just need to check 9 and -9 for the other interval.

    since i can't use f(8)

    For the \([0,4]\) interval, the minimum is -589 right?

    For the \([-9,9]\) interval... you can consider \(f(8)\), but you also need to consider \(f(-9)\) and \(f(9)\)

    after i do all the work, the problem is i don't know how to pick the min and max.

    for f(-9)= -8727 and for f(9) = -1149.

    Is this correct ?? (a) on [0,4] The minimum is -589 and the maximum is 4.06074 (b) on [-9,9] The minimum is -8727 and the maximum is -1149

    Yeah... the minimum is the LOWEST value the maximum is the HIGHEST value.

    You only have to consider the values at critical points and endpoints.
