etc) Mean Value Theorem for Integrals :

a a o b Proof : Since f is a continuous function on the closed interval [a,b] , by the Maximum and
MinimumValue Theorems, f has a maximum vaule M and a minimum value m on [0, b], i.e., m S f (1:) S M on [a,b] . By property l'\. of deﬁnite integrals,

on the closed interval [a,b] and that F(z) = / f(t)dt . Then F’ (2:) = f(:r) .

Proof : Consider F(z) = f f (t) dt as the area under the graph of f above the interval [0, 1:] .
Then F(z+h) is the area urider the graph of f above the interval [a, z+h] and F(z+h) — F(z) z+h
is the area of the “ thin strip ” from a: to z+ h, i.e., F(.r + h) — F(z) = / f(t) dt . By the
Mean Value Theorem for integrals there is at least one number c , x S c :5 :r + h , so that 4: The derivative of F(z) can now be computed as m) = lim h+0 h.
