The question asks

"If f(x)= x² + 10*sin(x), show that there is a number c such that f(c)=1000"

so its asking to solve for x when f(x)=1000 right?

Not exactly.

The problem is asking you to show a solution exists, but it does not ask you to find it.

Sometimes it is easy to show the existence of a solution but hard to actually find the solution. If you can find a solution, great-- that certainly proves its existence. - October 7th 2009, 06:25 PMcolmex
ohhhhhhhhhhhh okay

so how do i prove it? haha - October 7th 2009, 07:27 PMmr fantastic
