Here is the problem. Determine from the graph whether the function has any absolute extreme values on [a, b]. Then explain how your answer is consistent with Theorem 1.

So Theorem 1 is the one that states f(x) has a maximum and minimum if F(x) is continuous on a closed interval [a,b]

If you look at the image you will see the graph. I think that this graph is not continuous. And so I said there is no maximum or minimum. but the book says maximum x = c minimum x = a. So I guess this graph is continuous according to the book. but how is the attached image continuous in the interval [a,b]
