Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For a monotonic increasing/decreasing function [tex] f(x) [/tex] on [tex] x \in \mathbb{R}[/tex], we can only have supremum/infimum which is occured at [tex] x = \infty[/tex] with value [tex] \lim_{x\uparrow \infty}f(x) [/tex] Otherwise, if it was a maximum/minimum, it would violate the assumption of monotonicity.

Am I correct on the above statement?
