Not to be confused with the Mean Value Theorem is the **Extreme Value Theorem: π₯**

There are two different places where an extreme value can occur: a **critical point** or an **endpoint**.Β π

Itβs possible that** a local extreme value can be the absolute maximum or minimum**, so you need to find all of the relative maximum and minimum values within the domain.Β

Once youβve found your relative extreme values on the domain, **donβt forget to check your endpoints **by plugging the ends of your domain into the function.Β βοΈ

Now that you have a set of values (both relative extrema and endpoint values), compare them to pick the biggest and smallest value. This gives you your **absolute extreme values**.Β π
