# Extreme Value Theorem Exercises

### Example 1

Consider the function *f*(*x*) = 2cos(*x*) + 1 on the interval [-2π, 2π]:

- What is the maximum value of the function on this interval?

### Example 2

Consider the function *f*(*x*) = 2cos(*x*) + 1 on the interval [-2π, 2π]:

- What are the values of
*x*at which the maximum is attained?

### Example 3

Consider the function *f*(*x*) = 2cos(*x*) + 1 on the interval [-2π, 2π]:

- What is the minimum value of the function
*f*on this interval?

### Example 4

Consider the function *f*(*x*) = 2cos(*x*) + 1 on the interval [-2π, 2π]:

- What are the values of
*x*at which the minimum is attained?

### Example 5
