Question

Does the function satisfy the hypotheses of the Mean Value Theorem on the given interval?

\(\text{f}(x)=5x^2-2x+1,~[0,~2]\)

 

a. Yes, it does not matter If f is continuous or differentiable, every function satisfies the Mean Value Theorem.

b. Yes, f is continuous on [0, 2] and differentiable on (0, 2) since polynomials are continuous and differentiable on \(\mathbb{R}\).

c. No, f is not continuous on [0, 2].

d. No, f is continuous on [0, 2] but not differentiable on (0, 2).

e. There is not enough information to verify if this function satisfies the Mean Value Theorem.

 

If it satisfies the hypotheses, find all numbers c that satisfy the conclusion of the Mean Value Theorem. 

Answer

b. Yes, f is continuous on [0, 2] and differentiable on (0, 2) since polynomials are continuous and differentiable on \(\mathbb{R}\).
