Hi, just trying to do some homework for college and I can't get my head around this question. It is a question to show that if you take away the condition of a function being continuous, the max-min theorem no longer holds true. Any help is greatly appreciated!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose thatf: [a,b] -> R is not continuous. Show thatfneed not have an absolute maximum and an absolute minimum on [a,b]. (Answer in graphical form)
