Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1mean value theorem states, that if a function is continuous and differentiable on a given interval [w,z], then there exists a value v, where the derivative of the value of the derivative of the function at v is equal to \[f'(v) = (f(z)  f(w))/(zw)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i'd say yes, we can graph the function and it is continuous and differentiable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1solve for the value c, such that \[f'(c) = 2*e^{2x} = (f(3)  f(0))/(3  0)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so \[(e^6  1) / 3 = 2*e^{2*c}\] solve for c!
