## Question:

Use calculus to find the absolute maximum and minimum values of the function below. (Round all answers to three decimal places.)

{eq}f(x) = x - 2 \cos(x) \, ; \; [-2, \; 0] {/eq}

## Absolute Minima:

To find absolute minimum and absolute maximum values of the function differentiate the function and find the values where it is 0. Then check by plugging the points obtained and upper and lower values of the range the values of the function the minimum value obtained will give absolute minimum.
