I have 3 questions that I'm stuck on.. if you have any idea about any of them please help me out! Thanks!
1. Use the fact that ln x and e^x are inverse functions to show that the inequalities e^x >/= 1+x and ln x </= x-1 are equivalent for x>0.
2. Prove. If f ' (x) </= 1 for all x and f(0)=0, f(x) </= x for all x>/= 0.
3. Suppose that f ' ' (x) >/= 0 for all x in (a,b). We will show the graph of f lies above the tangent line at (x,f(c)) for any c with a<c<b.
a) Use the increasing function theorum to prove that f'(c)</=f'(x) for c</= x < b and that f'(x) </= f'(c) for a<x</=c.
b) Use (a) and the racetrack principle to conclude that f(c) + f'(c)(x-c) </= f(x) for a<x<b.
Thank you sooooooooooo much
