The closed interval method is a way to solve a problem within a specific interval of a function. The solutions found by the closed interval method will be at the absolute maximum or minimum points on the interval, which can either be at the endpoints or at critical points. Other ways of solving optimization problems include using the first derivative test or the second derivative test.
