The difference in this example is we are restricted to a specific interval. So the edges of the interval will act as critical points along with the ones we find using the first derivative. They will be relative max or min depending on their position. Maxima and Minima of Functions

This is neither because there is no change in increasing/decreasing. It is called an “inflection point” which we will discuss later…
