Critical Numbers

posted by on .

Find the critical numbers of the function on the interval 0 ≤ θ < 2π.
f(θ) = 2cos(θ) + (sin(θ))^2

  • Critical Numbers - ,

    Critical point:
    A critical point at the interior of the domain of a function is the point where the derivative is zero or undefined.


    f(θ) = 2cos(θ) + (sin(θ))^2
    does not have any undefined points for θ∈ℝ.
    So we only need to find the values of θ which make f'(θ)=0.
    Differentiate f(θ) and equate to zero. Solve for all roots for the equation and these are the critical points.
