Step 1
Suppose a function given by \(\displaystyle{y}={f}{\left({x}\right)}\) is defined in the interval (a,b). In order to find the maximum or minimum. value of the function, we make use of the derivative \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{\left.{d}{y}\right.}}}{{{\left.{d}{x}\right.}}}}\) as it gives the rate of change of quantity ywith respect to quantity x.
First we need to find the critical points. These are the points at which the function either attains maximum or minimum.
This is done by equating \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{\left.{d}{y}\right.}}}{{{\left.{d}{x}\right.}}}}={0}\).
If \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{\left.{d}{y}\right.}}}{{{\left.{d}{x}\right.}}}}\) changes from +ve to -ve then we have a maximum value of f (x). If \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{\left.{d}{y}\right.}}}{{{\left.{d}{x}\right.}}}}\) changes from -ve to +ve then we have a minimum value of f (x).
In the curve, the point of maxima is called a Peak, and the point of minima is called a Valley.
Relative Maximum
It refers to all the peak values of the function, the points at which the term \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{\left.{d}{y}\right.}}}{{{\left.{d}{x}\right.}}}}\) changes its sign from +ve to -ve.
However, it does not give the real picture of the scenario, as there may be many other points at which \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{\left.{d}{y}\right.}}}{{{\left.{d}{x}\right.}}}}\) changes its sign from +ve to -ve. (Refer the graph)
Step 2
Absolute Maximum
It refers to the value of the function which is maximum in the entire interval. It gives a much better analysis of the function.
function is said to have Absolute maximum at a point \(\displaystyle{x}={c}\) if and only if \(f\left(c\right)\geq f\left(x\right)\) for all values of xin the given interval.
Step 2
Absolute Maximum
It refers to the value of the function which is maximum in the entire interval. It gives a much better analysis of the function.
function is said to have Absolute maximum at a point \(\displaystyle{x}={c}\) if and only if \(f\left(c\right)\geq f\left(x\right)\) for all values of xin the given interval.

Step 3
Relation between Absolute maximum and Relative maximum-
It can be observed from the graph that,
Abs \(\displaystyle\max{f}{\left({x}\right)}=\) largest of all the relative maximum in \(\displaystyle{\left[{a},{b}\right]}\).

Mass Analysis of Two Chlorine-Fluorine Samples SampleMass of Chlorine (g)Mass of Fluorine (g)% Cl% F I13.0226.97865.1134.89 II5.7539.248??
Which statement best describes the relationship between the two samples?
A. The compound in Sample I is the same as in Sample II. Therefore, the mass ratio of Cl to F in both samples will obey the law of definite proportions.
B. The compound in Sample I is the same as in Sample II. Therefore, the mass ratio of Cl to F in both samples will obey the law of multiple proportions.
C. The compound in Sample I is not the same as in Sample II. Therefore, the mass ratio of Cl to F in both samples will obey the law of definite proportions.
D. The compound in Sample I is not the same as in Sample II. Therefore, the mass ratio of Cl to F in both samples will obey the law of multiple proportions.

The profit function for an operation is given by
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({x},{y}\right)}={2200}+{24}{x}-{x}^{{{2}}}+{80}{y}-{y}^{{{2}}}\)
where x is the cost of a unit of labor and y the cost of one item. Find the maxBimum amount of profit that can be generated from this operation. Itis necessry to do a prospective analysis of the profitability of this operation. Determine the approximate increase or decrease in profit if the units of labor increases from 12 to 13 while the price of an item remains the same at 40. Also, what if the labor remains steady at 12 but the price increase from 40 to 41?
