Calculus I Section 4.2 – Rolle’s Theorem and the Mean Value Theorem Rolle’s Theorem Let f be a continuous function on the closed interval [ a, b ] and differentiable on the open interval ( a, b ). If f(a)=f(b) then there is at least one number c in ( a, b ) such that 0 ) ( = c f . Hypotheses: ________________________________________________________________ Conclusion: ________________________________________________________________ Diagram illustrating the theorem: Determine whether Rolle’s Theorem can be applied to on the interval [1,3]. If Rolle’s Theorem can be applied, find all values of c guaranteed by the theorem. Determine whether Rolle’s Theorem can be applied to on the interval [0, 2 ]. If Rolle’s Theorem
