# Thread: graph Mean value theorem

1. ## graph Mean value theorem

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 =
c =
c = (largest value)

You are looking for the points where the tangent to the curve has the same
slope as the line joining the ends of the curve (which has slope 0.25).

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
nearest 0.1.
