Make a conjecture about the maximum and minimum
populations of the United States from 2000 to 2013.
Analytically find the maximum and minimum populations over
The brief paragrah while comparing a conjecture with the minimum population was 281.8
million in 2000 and the maximum population was 316.1 million in 2013.
We need to calculate: The absolute extrema of the popullation over the closed interval [0, 13].
