Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you want the slope of the line that runs between your interval ends (1,2) then find the point that that slope touches only once.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In other words you need to find two things: the slope between 2 points and the derivative of the function f(x). f'(x) = f(2)  f(1)/(21) solve for x
