Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@fozia , you have correctly identified the first derivative, but it will never be equal to zero. Therefore, there is no need to take the second derivative. It is sufficient to just analyze the first derivative, realize that it is always positive, and that the original function is always increasing, so it has no extreme values.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its first derivative is always a positive, hence it is increasing for all [0.4]. the minimum value will be at x=0, maximu will be at x=4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Read my first post. That will tell you. That numerator of the first derivative is always positive. So is the denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No extreme values for domain of all x. min and max though at the endpoints for the given problem domain.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's because "e" is a positive base, so any exponent you put on it will result in a positive number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you see that fozia's derivative is correct? That's where you should start.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ (1 + e ^{x})e ^{x}  e ^{x}e ^{x} }{ (1 + e ^{x})^{2} } = \frac{ e ^{x} + e ^{2x}  e ^{2x} }{ (1 + e ^{x})^{2} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In the numerator, you are left with only e^x and the denominator is the original denominator squared.

tcarroll010

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, there is no need to take the second derivative. It is sufficient to just analyze the first derivative, realize that it is always positive, and that the original function is always increasing, so it has no extreme values, if your domain is all x. But your domain is limited, so you have your min and max at the xvalue endpoints.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For this function \[\huge f(x)= 2\sin4x+3 ; [0, \pi]\] i get the derivative as \[\huge f'(x)=8\cos4x \] To find the extreme values, do i plug in the endpoints into f(x) ? @tcarroll010

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@dan815 I don't know why everybody here ignores the ends of interval when they find out the max, min. My prof always asked us to consider those points, too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i told him to look at those points too :) but its not really needed in this case
