As in the previous assignment, provide all details in your work. Also as previously, stars (*) indicate possibly more challenging questions. 1. (10 pts.) (a) Let f ( x ) = ( x 2)( x 3)( x 4)( x 5)( x 6). If the Bisection Method is applied, beginning with the interval [0 , 7], which of the roots of f is located ? (b) Show that the equation 1 x 2 + x + x 2 = 2 x has at least two solutions x > 0. 2. (10 pts.) Let f : [0 , 1] R be continuous and such that f (0) = f (1). Prove that there exists a point c [0 , 1 2 ] such that f ( c ) = f ( c + 1 2 ). [Hint: Consider g ( x ) = f ( x ) f ( x + 1 2 ).] Conclude that there are, at any time, antipodal points on the earth’s equator that have the same temperature.
