Explain why the Extreme Value Theorem doesn't apply to the function y = x.
I dont know what the questions means. Our teacher never taught us what the Extreme Value Theorem is and posted this onto the test review.
The Extreme Value Theorem says that on a bounded interval, a continuous function must reach a maximum and a minimum at least once
y = x is not bounded function because it has no max or min over its domain [ we could restrict the domain to make it bounded ]
