**NCERT Solutions for Maths Class 12 Exercise 6.3**

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 1.**

Find the maximum and minimum values, if any, of the following functions given by**(i)** f(x) = (2x – 1)² + 3**(ii)** f(x) = 9x² + 12x + 2**(iii)** f(x) = – (x – 1)² + 10**(iv) **g(x) = x^{3} + 1

**Solution:****(i)** We have, f(x) = (2x – 1)² + 3

Minimum value of (2x – 1)² is zero.

Minimum value of (2x – 1)² + 3 is 3.

Clearly, it does not have maximum value.

**(ii)** We have, f(x) = 9x² + 12x + 2

⇒ f(x) = (3x + 2)² – 2

Minimum value of (3 + 2)² is zero.

∴ Minimum value of (3x + 2)² – 2 is –2.

Clearly, f(x) does not have finite maximum value.

**(iii)** We have, f(x) = – (x – 1)² + 10

Maximum value of –(x – 1)² is zero.

Maximum value of f(x) = – (x – 1)² + 10 is 10.

Clearly, f(x) does not have finite minimum value.

**(iv)** We have, g(x) = x^{3} + 1

As x → ∞, g(x) → ∞; Also, x → -∞, g(x) → -∞

Thus, there is no maximum or minimum value of f(x).

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 2.**

Find the maximum and minimum values, if any, of the following functions given by**(i)** f(x) = |x + 2| – 1**(ii)** g(x) = –|x + 1| + 3**(iii)** h(x) = sin 2x + 5**(iv)** f(x) = |sin(4x + 3)|**(v) **h(x) = x + 1, x ∈ (–1, 1)** **

**Solution:****(i)** We have, f(x) = |x + 2| – 1 ∀ x ∈ R

Now, |x + 2| ≥ 0 ∀ x ∈ R

|x + 2| – 1 ≥ – 1 ∀ x ∈ R,

So, –1 is the minimum value of f(x).

Now, f(x) = –1

⇒ |x + 2| – 1 = –1

⇒ |x + 2| = 0

⇒ x = – 2

**(ii)** We have, g(x) = = –|x + 1| + 3 ∀ x ∈ R

Now, |x + 1| ≥ 0 ∀ x ∈ R ⇒ –|x + 1| ≤ 0 ∀ x ∈ R

–|x + 1| + 3 ≤ 3 ∀ x ∈ R

So, 3 is the maximum value of g(x).

Now, g(x) = 3

⇒ –|x + 1| + 3 = 3

⇒ |x + 1| = 0

⇒ x = –1

**(iii)** We have, h(x) = sin 2x + 5

Since –1 ≤ sin 2x ≤ 1 ∀ x ∈ R

Adding 5 to all terms, –1 + 5 ≤ sin 2x + 5 ≤ 1 + 5 ∀ x ∈ R

⇒ 4 ≤ sin 2x + 5 ≤ 6 ∀ x ∈ R

Thus, the maximum value of f(x) is 6 and the minimum value is 4.

**(iv)** We have, f(x) = |sin 4x + 3|

Since –1 ≤ sin 4x ≤ 1 ∀ x ∈ R

Adding 3 to all terms, –1 + 3 ≤ sin 2x + 3 ≤ 1 + 3 ∀ x ∈ R

⇒ 2 ≤ sin 2x + 3 ≤ 4 ∀ x ∈ R

Thus, the maximum value of f(x) is 4 and the minimum value is 2.

**(v) **We have, h(x) = x + 1, x ∈ (–1, 1)

Since –1 < x < 1

Adding 1 to all terms, –1 + 1 ≤ x + 1 ≤ 1 + 1

⇒ 0 ≤ x + 1 ≤ 2

Thus, the maximum value of h(x) is 2 and the minimum value is 0. But these values do not exist in the interval (–1, 1).

Therefore, the function h(x) has neither minimum value nor maximum value in (–1, 1).

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 3.**

Find the local maxima and local minima, if any, of the following functions. Find also the local maximum and the local minimum values, as the case may be:**(i)** f(x) = x^{2}**(ii)** g(x) = x^{3} – 3x**(iii)** h(x) = sin x + cos x, 0 < x < Ï€/2**(iv)** f(x) = sin^{ }x – cos^{ }x, 0 < x < 2Ï€**(v)** f(x) = x^{3 }– 6x^{2} + 9x + 15**(vi)** g(x) = x/2 + 2/x, x > 0**(vii)** g(x) = 1/(x^{2} + 2)**(viii)** f(x) =, x > 0

**Solution:**

**(i)** We have, f(x) = x² ⇒ f’(x) = 2x and f’’(x) = 2

Now, f'(x) = 0 ⇒ 2x = 0 i.e., x = 0

When x = 0, f’’(x) = 2 (+ve)

⇒ f(x) has a local minimum at x = 0 and local minimum value f(0) = 0.

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 4.**

Prove that the following functions do not have maxima or minima:**(i)** f(x) = e^{x}**(ii)** f(x) = log x**(iii)** h(x) = x^{3} + x^{2} + x + 1

**Solution:****(i)** We have, f(x) = e^{x} ⇒ f'(x) = e^{x};

Since f’(x) ≠ 0 for any value of x.

So, f(x) = e^{x} does not have a maxima or minima.

**(ii)** We have, f(x) = log x ⇒ f’(x) = 1/x;

Clearly f’(x) ≠ 0 for any value of x.

So, f(x) = log x does not have a maxima or minima.

**(iii)** We have, f(x) = x^{3} + x^{2} + x + 1

⇒ f’(x) = 3x^{2} + 2x + 1

Now, f’(x) = 0 ⇒ 3x^{2} + 2x + 1 = 0

i.e. f'(x) = 0 at imaginary points

i.e. f'(x) ≠ 0 for any real value of x.

Hence, there is neither maxima nor minima.

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 5.**

Find the absolute maximum value and the absolute minimum value of the following functions in the given intervals:**(i) **f(x) = x^{3}, x ∈ [–2, 2]**(ii)** f(x) = sin x + cos x, x ∈ [0, Ï€]**(iii)** f(x) = 4x – x^{2}/2, x ∈ [–2, 9/2]**(iv)** f(x) = (x – 1)^{2} + 3, x ∈ [–3, 1]

**Solution:****(i) **We have, f(x) = x^{3} in [ –2, 2]

∴ f'(x) = 3x²; Now, f’(x) = 0 at x = 0, f(0) = 0

Now, f(–2) = (–2)^{3} = – 8; f(0) = (0)² = 0 and f(2) = (2)^{3} = 8

Hence, the absolute maximum value of f(x) is 8 which is attained at x = 2 and absolute minimum value of f(x) is –8 which is attained at x = –2.

**(ii)** We have, f(x) = sin x + cos x in [0, Ï€]

f’(x) = cos x – sin x for extreme values f’(x) = 0

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 6.**

Find the maximum profit that a company can make, if the profit function is given by p(x) = 41 – 24x – 18x²

**Solution:**

Profit function is given by p(x) = 41 – 24x – 18x²

∴ p'(x) = – 24 – 36x = –12(2 + 3x)

For maxima and minima, p'(x) = 0

Now, p'(x) = 0

⇒ –12(2 + 3x) = 0

⇒ x = –2/3

p'(x) changes sign from +ve to -ve.

⇒ p(x) has maximum value at x = –2/3

Maximum Profit = 41 + 16 – 8 = 49.

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 7.**

Find both the maximum value and the minimum value of 3x^{4} – 8x^{3} + 12x^{2} – 48x + 25 on the interval [0, 3].

**Solution:**

Let f(x) = 3x^{4} – 8x^{3} + 12x^{2} – 48x + 25

∴ f'(x) = 12x^{3} – 24x^{2} + 24x – 48

= 12(x^{2} + 2)(x – 2)

For maxima and minima, f'(x) = 0

⇒ 12(x^{2} + 2)(x – 2) = 0

⇒ x = 2

Now, we find f(x) at x = 0, 2 and 3, f(0) = 25,

f(2) = 3(2^{4}) – 8(2^{3}) + 12(2^{2}) – 48(2) + 25 = –39

and f(3) = (3^{4}) – 8(3^{3}) + 12(3^{2}) – 48(3) + 25

= 243 – 216 + 108 – 144 + 25 = 16

Hence, at x = 0, maximum value = 25

and at x = 2, minimum value = –39.

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 8.**

At what points in the interval [0, 2Ï€] does the function sin 2x attain its maximum value?

**Solution:**

We have, f(x) = sin 2x in [0, 2Ï€] ⇒ f’(x) = 2 cos 2x

For maxima and minima, f’(x) = 0 ⇒ cos 2x = 0

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 9.**

What is the maximum value of the function sin x + cos x?

**Solution:**

Consider the interval [0, 2Ï€].

Let f(x) = sin x + cos x,

f’(x) = cos x – sin x

For maxima and minima, f’(x) = 0

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 10.**

Find the maximum value of 2x^{3} – 24x + 107 in the interval [1, 3]. Find the maximum value of the same function in [–3, –1].

**Solution:**

∵ f(x) = 2x^{3} – 24x + 107

∴ f’(x) = 6x^{2} – 24,

For maxima and minima, f'(x) = 0 ⇒ x = ±2

For the interval [ 1, 3], we find the values of f(x) at x = 1, 2, 3;

f(1) = 85, f(2) = 75, f(3) = 89

Hence, maximum value of f(x) = 89 at x = 3.

For the interval [–3, –1], we find the values of f(x) at x = – 3, – 2, – 1;

f(–3) = 125;

f(–2) = 139

f(–1) = 129

∴ Maximum value of f(x) = 139 at x = –2.

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 11.**

It is given that at x = 1, the function x^{4} – 62x^{2} + ax + 9 attains its maximum value, on the interval [0, 2]. Find the value of a.

**Solution:**

We have, f(x) = x^{4} – 62x^{2} + ax + 9

∴ f’(x) = 4x^{3} – 124x + a

Now, f’(x) = 0 at x = 1

⇒ 4 – 124 + a = 0

⇒ a = 120

Now, f”(x) = 12x^{2} – 124

At x = 1, f”(1) = 12 – 124 = – 112 < 0

⇒ f(x) has a maximum value at x = 1 when a = 120.

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 12.**

Find the maximum and minimum values of x + sin 2x on [0, 2Ï€].

**Solution:** We have, f(x) = x + sin 2x on [0, 2Ï€]

∴ f’(x) = 1 + 2 cos 2x

For maxima and minima f’(x) = 0

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 13.**

Find two numbers whose sum is 24 and whose product is as large as possible.

**Solution:**

Let the required numbers are x and (24 – x).

∴ Their product, p = x(24 – x) = 24x – x²

Now, dp/dx = 0 ⇒24 – 2x = 0 ⇒ x = 12

Also, d^{2}p/dx^{2} = –2 < 0 ⇒ p is maximum at x = 12.

Hence, the required numbers are 12 and (24 – 12) i.e., 12.

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 14.**

Find two positive numbers x and y such that x + y = 60 and xy^{3} is maximum.

**Solution:**

We have, x + y = 60

⇒ y = 60 – x … (i)

Let z = xy^{3}

⇒ z = x(60 – x)^{3}

⇒ dz/dx = x[3(60 – x)^{2}(–1)] + (60 – x)^{3}

= (60 – x)^{2}[–3x + 60 – x]

= (60 – x)^{2}(60 – 4x)

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 15.**

Find two positive numbers x and y such that their sum is 35 and the product x^{2}y^{5} is a maximum.

**Solution:**

We have, x + y = 35 ⇒ y = 35 – x

Product, P = x^{2}y^{5}

= x^{2}(35 – x)^{5}

**Maths Class 12 Ex 6.3 Question 16.**

Find two positive numbers whose sum is 16 and the sum of whose cubes is minimum.

**Solution:**

Let two numbers be x and 16 – x.

Hence, the required numbers are 8 and (16 – 8) i.e., 8 and 8.
