## NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Maths Chapter 6 Application of Derivatives Ex 6.5

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths 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) 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) f(x) = 9x² + 12x + 2

⇒ f(x) = (3x + 2)² – 2

Minimum value of (3 + 2)² is zero.

∴ Min.value of (3x + 2)² – 2 = 9x² + 12x + 2 is – 2

f (x) does not have finite maximum value

(iii) f(x) = – (x – 1)² + 10

Maximum value of – (x – 1)² is zero

Maximum valuer f f(x) = – (x – 1)² + 10 is 10

f (x) does not have finite minimum value.

(iv) As x—»∞,g(x)—»∞;Also x—»-∞,g(x)—»-∞

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

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths 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 min. value of f(x)

now f(x) = -1

⇒ |x + 2|-1

⇒ |x + 2| = 0

⇒ x = – 2

(ii) We have g(x) = -|x + 1| + 3 ∀x∈R

Now | x + 1| ≥ 0 ∀x∈R

-|x+ 1| + 3 ≤3 ∀x∈R

So 3 is the minimum value of f(x).

Now f(x) = 3

⇒ -|x+1| + 3

⇒ |x+1| = 0

⇒ x = – 1.

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

(iv) Let f(x) = |sin4x + 3|

Maximum value of sin 4x is 1

∴ Maximum value of |sin(4x+3)| is |1+3| = 4

Minimum value of sin 4x is -1

∴ Minimum value of f(x) is |-1+3| = |2|= 2

(v) Greatest value of f (x) is 2 and least value is 0.

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths 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) = sinx+cosx,0<x<

(iv) f(x) = sin^{4}x + cos^{4}x,0<x<

(v) f(x) = x^{3 }– 6x^{2} + 9x:+15

(vi) g(x) = , x>0

(vii) g(x) = , x>0

(viii) f(x) = , x>0

**Solution:**

(i) Let f(x) = x² ⇒ f’(x) = 2x

Now f'(x) = 0 ⇒ 2x = 0 i.e., x = 0

At x = 0; When x is slightly < 0, f’ (x) is -ve When x is slightly > 0, f(x) is +ve

∴ f(x) changes sign from -ve to +ve as x increases through 0.

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

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths 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) f'(x) = e^{x};

Since f’ (x) ≠ 0 for any value of x.

So f(x) = e^{x} does not have a max. or min.

(ii) f’ (x) = ; Clearly f’ (x) ≠ 0 for any value of x.

So,f’ (x) = log x does not have a maximum or a minimum.

(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 max. nor min.

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths 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, π]

(iii) f(x) =

(iv) f(x) =

**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(0) = (2) = 8

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

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

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

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths 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 in 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 = ,

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

⇒ p (x) has maximum value at x =

Maximum Profit = 41 + 16 – 8 = 49.

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths 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

at x = 2, Minimum value = – 39.

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths Question 8.**

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

**Solution:**

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

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

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths Question 9.**

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

**Solution:**

Consider the interval [0, 2π],

Let f(x) = sinx + cosx,

f’ (x) = cosx – sinx

For maxima and minima, f’ (x) = 0

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths 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 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

∴ max.f(x) = 139 at x = – 2.

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths 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:**

∵ 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 at x = 1 when a = 120.

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths Question 12.**

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

**Solution:**

∴f(x) = x + sin2x on[0,2π]

∴f’ (x) = 1+2 cos2x

For maxima and minima f’ (x) = 0

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths Question 13.**

**Solution:**

Let the required numbers hex and (24-x)

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

Now = 0 ⇒24 – 2x = 0 ⇒ x = 12

Also = -2<0: ⇒ p is max at x = 12

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

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths Question 14.**

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

**Solution:**

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths 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:**

Product p = x^{2} y^{5}

= x^{2} (35 – x)^{5}

**Ex 6.5 Class 12 Maths Question 16.**
