Not sure how to do this problem....

**Reiny**, Saturday, April 28, 2012 at 10:54pmI read you equation as

f(x) = sin (πx)

f'(x) = πcos(πx)

for local max/min, f'(x) = 0

cos(πx) = 0

πx = -π/2 or πx = π/2 or πx= 3π/2

x = ± 1/2 or x = 3/2 , but our domain is [-1,2]

so x = -1/2 or x = 1/2

so

f(-1/2) = sin (-π/2) = -1

f(1/2) = sin (π/2) = 1

also look at endpoints of domain

f(-1) = sin(-π) = 0

f(2) = sin(2π) = 0

so the max is 1 and the min is -1
