Ex 6.5, 3 Find the local maxima and local minima, if any, of the following functions. Find also the local maximum & the local minimum values, as the case may be: (i) f (๐‘ฅ)=๐‘ฅ2 f(๐‘ฅ)=๐‘ฅ^2 Finding fโ€™(x) fโ€™(x) = 2x Putting fโ€™(x) = 0 2x = 0 x = 0 Finding fโ€™โ€™(x) fโ€™(x) = 2x Differentiating again fโ€™โ€™(x) = 2 Since fโ€™โ€™(x) > 0 for x = 0 So, f(x) is minimum at x = 0 Minimum value of f(x) at x = 0 f(x) = x2 f(0) = 02 = 0 So, Minimum value of f(x) = 0 There is no maximum value
