Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, the first part is pretty easy. It's basically just the definition of "not uniformly continuous"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ah. This new one I can do. It's just the IVP (intermediate value theorem). To be honest, I wasn't expecting them to accept me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let's see how much I remember. Last time proved this, we started with the assumption that \(f(a)f(b)\le 0\). In this particular case, if \(f(a)=0\) or \(f(b)=0\), we're done. If \(f(a)f(b)<0\), then one of \(f(a),f(b)\) is negative, and the other positive. At this point, we had another theorem that proved there was then some \(c\in[a,b]\) s.t. \(f(c)=0\). Then define \(g(x)=f(x)+y\). Then, from what we just proved, it immediately follows that \(g(c)=y\). If we started with \(g(b)\le y\le g(a)\), take \(f(x)=g(x)y\), so \(f(b)\le 0 \le g(a)\). From this we get that \(f(b)f(a)\le 0\) and we're done.
