Absolute Minimum Maximum

Concept

Absolute Minimum/Maximum

For some functions, their graphs extend infinitely in one vertical direction — either up or down. For these graphs, there will be a highest or a lowest point. Respectively, these are called the absolute maximum and absolute minimum.

For a quadratic function, the absolute maximum or minimum point of the parabola is also the vertex.
