Example 26 Find the maximum and the minimum values, if any, of the function f given by f (π‘₯) = π‘₯2 , π‘₯ ∈ R f(π‘₯)=π‘₯^2 First we plot the Graph of 𝒙^𝟐 At x = 0 f(0)=0 And, we note that f(π‘₯)>0 for all π‘₯ except 0 Thus, Minimum value of f(π‘₯)=𝟎 at 𝒙 = 0 Also, Since f(𝒙)>𝟎 for all π‘₯ except 0 So, we cannot find a maximum value Example: f(100)=(100)^2 = 10000 f(1000)= (1000)^2 = 1000000 Hence , we cannot find maximum value of f(π‘₯) on 𝒙 ∈ R
