    show that g is differentiable at x_0 and that f'(x_0)=g'(x_0)=h'(x_0)...?

    Suppose that f,g,h are real valued functions on (a,b) and x_0 \in(a,b). Assume that f and h are differentiable at x_0, f( x_0)=h( x_0) and f(x)<=g(x)<=h(x) for all x \in(a,b). show that g is differentiable at x_0 and f'( x_0)=g'( x_0)=h'( x_0). Use this result to explain why the fraction F(x) defined by F(x)= x^2sin(1/x), x not equal to 0, and F(0)=0 has derivative equal to 0 at x=0.

    I honestly have no clue I hope some one can help me thanks!

I find that there are usually similar questions being posted which is a plus b/c its good practice. But I mean so many school use the same or similar books so I doubt it. The one I posted had extra parts to it also. That'd be cool tho and random lol
