The Intermediate Value Theorem and the Mean Value Theorem We give the correct statements of the Intermediate Value Theorem and the Mean Value Theorem . Theorem (Intermediate Value). Suppose that f :[ a , b ] ! R is a continuous function. Suppose that d is between the values f ( a ) and f ( b ) . Then there is a a < c < b such that f ( c ) = d . One application of the Intermediate Value Theorem is the Bisection Method for

Then there is a a &lt; c &lt; b such that ! f ( c ) = f ( b ) &quot; f ( a ) b &quot; a . One application of the Mean Value Theorem is to show that the Newton Method converges if the beginning value is close enough to the root....
