Unformatted text preview: This should read “for all integers n > 2”. This is since Rolle’s theorem holds true for functions f(x) which are defined and continuous on (a, ½). Since the given function f(x) is not defined at 0 we must have a > 0. Since a must be strictly less than ½, then we cannot have n = 1 nor 2....
