The difference in this example is we are restricted to a specific interval. So the edges of the interval will act as critical points along with the ones we find using the first derivative. They will be relative max or min depending on their position.

Moving left to right : If the edge has a decreasing arrow following, it is a relative maximum. If the edge has an increasing arrow following, it is a relative minimum. If the edge has a decreasing arrow in front of it, it is a relative minimum. If the edge has an increasing arrow in front of it, it is a relative maximum.

If the edge has a decreasing arrow in front of it, it is a relative minimum. If the edge has an increasing arrow in front of it, it is a relative maximum. Relative Maximum This is neither because there is no change in increasing/decreasing. It is called an “inflection point” which we will discuss later…
