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

It has been awhile since I have taken calculus, and now I am in analysis. I need to know what is the difference between the infimum and minimum and what is the difference between supremum and maximum?

I know there is a difference, I just don't understand how they could be.

Thanks -

Colleen
