Greatest and Least Values
The greatest or least value of a continuous
function f(x) in an interval [a, b] is
attained either at the critical points or at
the end points of the interval.
So, obtain the values of f(x) at these
points and compare them to determine
the greatest and the least value in the
interval [a, b].
