Example 16

If a, b, are real numbers, show that there exists at least one real number c

such that

Solution : Let f (x) = x3 over [a, b]

f (x) is continuous on [a, b] and differentiable in (a, b). Also f (b) = b3 and f ' (x) = 3x2.

Since f (x) satisfies all the conditions of mean-value theorem, there exists

at least one x=c, a < c < b such that


Example 17

Using mean - value theorem, prove that

Solution : Let f (x) = tan-1x over [x2, x1]

Now f (x) is continuous on [x2 , x1] and differentiable in (x2,x1)
