you didn't say so, so let me guess ... you need to find the values of a, b, and c so that the MVT will apply to f(x) on the interval [0,3] ?
If the MVT applies, then f(x) must satisfy what two conditions?
In the interval [0,3] f(x)= {1 , x=0
ax+b , 0 less than x less than or equal to 1
x2+4x+c , 1 less than x less than or equal to 3
(if it isnt clear, f(x) is a piecewise function)
How do i solve for a, b and c?
thanks!
Anyone?? Please??
