Let f ( x ) = x 3 + x 2 - 2 x on [-1,1]. Observe that f (-1) = 2, f (1) = 0, and k = 1 is a number between f (-1) and f (1). Since f is a polynomial, f is continuous on the interval [-1,1]. Consequently, the function f satisfies the hypotheses of the Intermediate Value Theorem. Thus, we are entitled to invoke the magical conclusion that asserts that there is at least one number x 0 in (-1,1) where f( x 0 ) = 1. ______________________________________________________________________ 3. (5 pts.) Pretend f is a magical function that has the property that at x = 3 the tangent line f is actually defined by the equation y = -2(x - 1) + 5. Obtain (a) f (3) = -2(3 - 1) + 5 = 1 (b) f (3) = -2
