f: [0,2]--->R be a continuous function on [0,2]. And f(0)=f(2). Show that there is a c in (0,1) such that f(c)=f(c+1). (hint: g(x)=f(x)-f(x+1))

(hint: g(x)=f(x)-f(x+1)) Note that: 1. g(0) = f(0) - f(1) and g(1) = f(1) - f(2) = f(1) - f(0) = - g(0). 2. g(x) is continuous. Apply the Intermediate Value Theorem.
