  • $\large\frac{d}{dx}$$(x^n)=nx^{n-1}$
  • Maxima & Minima=$f'(x)=0$
Step 1:
Differentiating with respect to $x$
For maxima & minima
$x=\pm 2$
Step 2:
For the interval $[1,3]$ we find the values of $f(x)$ at $x=1,2,3$
$f(1)=2(1)^3-24\times 1+107$
$f(2)=2(2)^3-24\times 2+107$
$f(3)=2(3)^3-24\times +107$
Hence maximum $f(x)=89$ at $x=3$.
