graph Mean value theorem
Please help. How do you read a graph and tell where the c's are?
Consider the following figure. Use the graph of f to estimate the values of c to the nearest 0.1 that satisfy the conclusion of the Mean Value Theorem for the interval [0, 8].
c = (smallest value)
c = (largest value)
You are looking for the points where the tangent to the curve has the same

You will need a paper copy of the plot and use a ruler, but the points are
near x=0.8, 3.2, 4, and 6.2, but these are probably not accurate to the
