(10: 6, 4) Suppose f (x) is a function on [a, b]; assume that f (a) < f (b). If f (x) is continuous and strictly increasing, the following statement will be true: For each point y in the interval [f (a), f (b)], there is one and only one point x in the interval [a, b] such that y = f (x). a) Prove this statement. b) For each of the two hypotheses on f (x), tell what part of the statement will not be true in general if that hypothesis is dropped, and give an example to illustrate this. 10. (10: 5, 5) a) Suppose f (x) is continuous on [a, b] and there is a sequence of distinct points xn in [a, b] such that f (xn ) = 0 for all n. Prove there is a subsequence of xn which converges to a point c in [a, b] such that f (c) = 0. b) Continuing part (a), suppose that f ′ (x) exists on [a, b] and is continuous. Prove that also f ′ (c) = 0. 11. (10) Suppose that f (x) is Riemann-integrable and f (x) = 1 whenever x is a rational number. (Its value when x is an irrational number is not known.) �b Evaluate, with proof, the integral f (x) dx. a 12. (5) For what values of k does ;the integral � ∞ 0+ 2 xk dx √ converge? x + x2...
