The pinching theorem is used to prove that 1 sin lim 0 = x x x for x measured in radians. See pp. 93- 94. Section 2.6 The Intermediate-Value Theorem If f is continuous on [ and K is a number between and , then there is at least one number c in the interval such that ] , b a ( a ) ( a f ) ( b f ) , b K c f = ) (.
Example 1: Use the bisection method to estimate the value of 2 to 2 decimal places.
