Extremas and MVT

  1. Dec 18, 2011 #1
    Can anyone give me an easy way to find extremas and how to use the mean value theorem. This is the first thing in calculus where I read and reread and have no idea what to do when I get to the problems. It just doesn't make sense to me..

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    EDIT: Basically my question is: Can someone show me their steps in solving a math problem involving these 2 things.
