How can I use rolle's theorem to find if these equations have one or more solutions? 1. f(x) = 2x – 2x^{3 2. }f(x) = 2x^{3}-4x^{2}+2x+2 3. f(x) = 2x^{3}+ 4x + 10 Thank you in advance

Why use Rolle's theorem? Couldn't you just check the determinant of the coefficient matrix?
Functions do not have a "solution". Were these set equal to some number, say 0? Was there some interval over which there was to be a solution?

I believe your attempt at paraphrasing this problem about functions and Rolle's theorem is missing some critical information.
Ok, I basically need to fill the blanks and explain my answer for every equation:
