In class today we were doing a problem where we were given the graph of f (the derivitive of F).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The domain was -3<x < or = 8

f(8)=0 and f had changed from positive <8 to 0, indicating a probable relative max (the function looked like a sinusoid, but the points after 8 were not graphed or included in the domain)

Therefore my question is, is 8 a relative max of F in that domain? or is not enough info there (i.e. it could have just bounced)?

My reasoning for it being a rel max is that it is a max value in the window.

What do you think?
