Find c that satisfies the MVT: f(x) = 5x^2 - 4x - 10 [4,8]
π/2 and 3π/2
Find c that satisfies the MVT: f(x) = sinx [0,2π]
MVT doesn't hold true
Find c that satisfies the MVT f(x) = 1/(x + 3) [-5, 0]
How do you find absolute extrema?
Find the critical points, make a number line, determine the max or min inside the interval, then consider the endpoints and if they are max or min. Finally, make and x, y chart and compare the y-values
What is an absolute maximum?
The biggest y-value on the given interval
What does the Intermediate Value Theorem guarantee?
That there is a y-value between f(a) and f(b) where the corresponding x-value is between a and b
f(x) must be continuous on [a,b]
What is the restriction of the IVT?
