I have a quick question,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have t/f question that I'm not sure about,

"if a function is continuous on a closed domain then the function has a maximum?"

My thoughts on it are that yes it would have a maximum. I mean you are restricting the domain so it can't go to -infinity, +infinity. What worries me though is a straight line. Does this have a max to begin with?

it's been awhile since I've had this class,

thanks in advance
