Question 02 (c) 

Find the absolute minimum of on the interval . Make sure you justify your answer. 
Make sure you understand the problem fully: What is the question asking you to do? Are there specific conditions or constraints that you should take note of? How will you know if your answer is correct from your work only? Can you rephrase the question in your own words in a way that makes sense to you? 
If you are stuck, check the hint below. Consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! 
Hint 

The absolute minimum of on the interval may be found at local minimum or two ends. 
Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used the hint, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. To find the local minimum we need to compute the derivate of . Using the chain rule, , where we have local maximum/minimum : two ends: Therefore, the absolute minimum is when , it is
