Therefore, at some time t, where 0 t 10, the position functions for the run up and the run down are equal. 76 Chapter 1 Limits and Their Properties 101. Suppose there exists x1 in a, b such that f x1 > 0 and there exists x2 in a, b such that f x2 < 0. Then by the Intermediate Value Theorem, f x must equal zero for some value of x in x1, x2 (or x2, x1 if x2 < x1). Thus, f would have a zero in a, b , which is a contradiction. Therefore, f x > 0 for all x in a, b or f x < 0 for all x in a, b . 100. Let V 4 r 3 be the volume of a sphere of radius r. V is 3 continuous on 1, 5 .
