    rolle's theorem is a special case of the mean value theorem

    f ' (c) = [f(b) - f(a)]/b-a

    that means that if the function is differentiable on the interval (a,b), then there must be some point c that makes that equation true where c is in the interval (a,b)

    so there's somewhere in the interval where the slope of the tangent is the same slope as the slope of the line if you drew a line connecting the endpoints

    so how would i figure out waht the square root of x-2 is when the interval is at [2,6]

    do you mean f(x) = sqrt (x-2) ?

    and you want to find the point where the mean value theorem applies?
