Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is the mean theorum but for a flat line.... really.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the mean theorum states that any slope between two points can be moved to a spot on the curve where it only touches at one point right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the Rolle theorum states that if the slope between two poits is a flat horizontal line, then there is a point on the curve that the flat line will only touch in one spot......

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if an interval I exists and is continuous between it end points and the interval I [a,b] has a slope of zero between f(a) and f(b) then there exists a point in the interval [a,b] called "c" such that the f'(c) = 0....matbe like that :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so in essence it's similiar to the mean value theorem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in essense...it IS the mean value theorum ;) only with a flat line. Why we need it to have its own name is a mystery to me....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plug in 1 and solve: f(1) = 0 plug in 1 and solve: f(1) = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes and show that f satisfies all the conditions for the application of Rolle's theorem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since the bottom of the function is never 0, we have no restrictions there and the function is continuous thruout the interval...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we can find the x = c such that f'(c) = 0 ..... then that shuold solve it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Rolles theorum doesnt tell you HOW to find "c", just that itlll exist :)

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are there any values of x in the interval [1,1] that we should avoid using? I dont see any, so it is continuous right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what value of x will make the denominator go to zero? 1+x^2 = 0 .....none, nade, zip, ziltch.... its consinuous :) so there must be a c value in the interval [1,1] that satisfies Rolles theorum

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it's saying find all c which satisfy the conclusion of Rolle's them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to find it, yo could look for the hgihest or lowest value of f(x) and that would be it; or take the derivative and make it equal to 0 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh, so take the defferential of f(x) and equate it to zero

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep, at f'(x) = 0 we have what they call "critical points" is is when the slope of the curve becomes "0"...a horizontal line

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes.. (1+x^2)(2x)  (x^2 1)(2x) = 0
