PART [3]

MAXIMA-MINIMA In solving a problem under maxima/minima, the following steps are to be considered: 1. Draw a figure when necessary 2. Identify what/which to maximize or minimize. 3. Formulate the equation. 4. Differentiate. 5. Equate to zero.

PROBLEMS: [1] Find the minimum distance from the point (4,2) to the parabola = 8.

NOTE: When the first derivative (slope) is equated to zero, it results to either maximum point or minimum points.

TIME-RATES The predominant tool used in the solution of related rates problems is the chain rule. Since most related rates problems deal with time as the independent variable, we state the chain rule in terms of t:
