Relative Maxima and Minima - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

Finding relative maxima and minima of a function can be done by looking at a graph of the function. A relative maximum is a point that is higher than the points directly beside it on both sides, and a relative minimum is a point that is lower than the points directly beside it on both sides. Relative maxima and minima are important points in curve sketching, and they can be found by either the first or the second derivative test.
