Explain the global optimization process for a continuous function over a closed interval. Be sure to identify all steps involved and clearly explain
how the derivative is utilized in this process.

Does this have to do with the first derivative rule or second derivative
rule and then substituting what you get to double check?

• Calculus -

yes, set the first derivative rule to zero, solve. Use the second derivative rule to see if max or min.
