Given a continual functionality f:[a, b] -> R that's differentiable on (a, b), the Mean-ValueTheorem (MVT) of easy calculus permits us to 'predict" a price of f'(x).Knowing simply the boundary values f(a) and f(b), we expect that f'((a,b))э(f(b)-f(a))/(b-a). might we now not count on a similar outcome for f:K -> R while okay is a.
