Average Speed

= 78 mph


Average Speed

= 78 mph

Instantaneous Speed =

78 mph


The Mean Value Theorem

Let f be continuous on [a, b] and differentiable on (a, b). Then there exists a point c in

(a, b) such that:

a

c

b


The Mean Value Theorem

Let f be continuous on [a, b] and differentiable on (a, b). Then there exists a point c in

(a, b) such that:

a

c

b


The Mean Value Theorem

Let f be continuous on [a, b] and differentiable on (a, b). Then there exists a point c in

(a, b) such that:

a

c

b


Example check that the hypothesis for the mvt is true for the function on the interval 0 5 2
Example Check that the hypothesis for the MVT is true for the function on the interval [0.5, 2].


Example check that the hypothesis for the mvt is true for the function on the interval 0 5 21
Example Check that the hypothesis for the MVT is true for the function on the interval [0.5, 2].

f(x) is not continuous at x = 0!


Example check that the hypothesis for the mvt is true for the function on the interval 0 5 22
Example Check that the hypothesis for the MVT is true for the function on the interval [0.5, 2].

f(x) is not continuous at x = 0!

That’s okay because 0 is not in [0.5, 2]!


Example check that the hypothesis for the mvt is true for the function on the interval 0 5 23
Example Check that the hypothesis for the MVT is true for the function on the interval [0.5, 2].

f(x) is not continuous at x = 0!

That’s okay because 0 is not in [0.5, 2]!

f(x) is not differentiable at x = 0, again, that’s okay!


Example If c is the value defined by the Mean Value Theorem, then for on [0, 1], what is the value of c?


Example If c is the value defined by the Mean Value Theorem, then for on [0, 1], what is the value of c?


Example If c is the value defined by the Mean Value Theorem, then for on [0, 1], what is the value of c?


Example If c is the value defined by the Mean Value Theorem, then for on [0, 1], what is the value of c?


Example If c is the value defined by the Mean Value Theorem, then for on [0, 1], what is the value of c?

Now solve for x!


Example If c is the value defined by the Mean Value Theorem, then for on [0, 1], what is the value of c?

Now solve for x!


Example If c is the value defined by the Mean Value Theorem, then for on [0, 1], what is the value of c?

Now solve for x!

Now find the roots using your calculator!


Example If c is the value defined by the Mean Value Theorem, then for on [0, 1], what is the value of c?

Now solve for x!

Now find the roots using your calculator!

This the c value of x that satisfies the MVT!
