**Questions discussed in this lecture**

**Question 5. **Find the absolute maximum value and the absolute minimum value of the following functions in the given intervals:

(i) f(x) = x^3, x \in [-2, 2]

(ii) f(x) = \sin x + \cos x, x \in [0, \pi]

(iii) f(x) = 4x – \frac{1}{2}x^2, x \in \left[-2, \frac{9}{2} \right]

(iv) f(x) = (x – 1)^2 + 3, x \in [-3, 1]

**Question 7. **Find both the maximum value and the minimum value of 3x^{4 }– 8x^{3} + 12x^{2} – 48x + 25 on the interval [0, 3].

**Question 8. **At what points in the interval [0, 2π], does the function sin 2x attain its maximum value?
