Pl. note correction in absolute minimum.
Function has absolute minimum=-76 at x=-3
Find the critical value(s) by setting the first derivative equal to zero and solving for the x value(s).
The critical numbers are x=0 and x=4 . Plug in the critical numbers and the endpoints of the interval [-3, 5] into the original f(x) function.
