(a)
[−5, 5]

minimum (x, y) =

(smaller x-value)
(x, y) =

(larger x-value)
maximum (x, y) =

1. let y = √( 25-x^2)
= (25-x^2)^(1/2)

dy/dx = (1/2)(25-x^2)^(-1/2) (-2x)
= -x/√(25-x^2)
= 0 for a max/min

thus x = 0
and f(0) = √25 = 5

I will let you decide if (0,5) is a max or a min
You might want want to look at a quick sketch of the function to easily answer the other parts
