Graph of a Curve (cont’d)
Increasing Decreasing Constant A function f is increasing on an open interval I if, for any x1 and x2 in I, with x1 < x2, we have f(x1) < f(x2). A function f is decreasing on an open interval I if, for any x1 and x2 in I, with x1 < x2, we have f(x1) > f(x2). A function f is constant on an open interval I if, for any x1 and x2 in I, we have f(x1) = f(x2). x y x1 x2 I f(x1) f(x2) y x x1 x2 I f(x1) f(x2) y x x1 x2 I f(x1) f(x2) Local (or Relative) Extrema f(x1) is a local max and also a global max A function f has a local maximum at x = x0 if locally, f(x0) is greater than all the surrounding values of f(x). We call this f(x0) a local maximum of f. A function f has a local minimum at x = x0 if locally, f(x0) is less than all the surrounding values of f(x). We call this f(x0) a local minimum of f. f(x3) is a local max x1 x2 x3 Global (or Absolute) Extrema A function f has a global maximum at x = x0 if f(x0) is greater than or equal to all values of f(x). We call this f(x0) the global maximum of f. A function f has a global minimum at x = x0 if f(x0) is less than or equal to all values of f(x). We call this f(x0) the global minimum of f. f(x2) is a local min

Use each graph to find the domain and range of the function:
-5 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 5 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 5 Domain = [–5, –2)  (–1, 5] Domain = [–4, 4) Range = (–2, 2] Range = [–3, 1)  [2,4) -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 5 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 5 Domain = (–∞, –3)  [–1, 4) Domain = (–, 5)  (5, ) Range = (–, –2)  (–1, 3] Range = {–3}  [–2, 1)  (1, )
