Lecture 5: Chapter - 3

Objective:

somewhere between two zeros of a non-constant continuous function f, the function

must change direction

For a differentiable function, the derivative is 0 at the point where f changes direction.

Thus, we expect there to be a point c where the tangent is horizontal. These ideas are

precisely stated by Rolle's Theorem:

Rolle's Theorem

there is at least one point c in (a,b) for which f(c) = 0.

Notice that both conditions on f are necessary. Without either one, the statement is false!

the conclusion of Rolle's Theorem may not hold:

again this might not be the case:

Though the theorem seems logical, we cannot be sure that it is always true without a

proof.

• If f(x) is always 0, then f(x) = 0 for all x in [a,b] and we are done.

• If f(x) varies on [a,b], then there must be points where f(x)0 or points where

f(x)0.

Assume first that there are points where f(x)0. By the Extreme Value Theorem f

has a maximum at some point c in [a,b]. Then f(c)0, so c is not an endpoint. At

this maximum, f(c) = 0.

Now assume that there are points where f(x)0. Then, again by the Extreme

Value Theorem, f has a minimum at some point c in [a,b]. Again, c is not an

endpoint since f(c)0 while f(a) = f(b) = 0. At this minimum, f(c) = 0.

Step 1: Show that the function is continuous in the given interval. Some known standard

functions which are continuous, can be mentioned directly.

Step 2: Differentiate f (x) and examine if f '(x) is defined at every point in the open

interval (a, b).

Step 3: Check if f (a) = f (b), If all the above condition are satisfied, then Rolle's theorem

is applicable else the Rolle's theorem is not applicable.

If Rolle's theorem is applicable, solve f '(c) = 0. Show that one of these roots lie in the

open interval (a, b).

Geometrical meaning

Let A (a,f (a)) and B (b,f (b)) be two points on the graph of f (x) such that f(a) = f(b), then

c (a, b) such that the tangent at P(c, f(c)) is parallel to x - axis

Example1: Verify Rolle's theorem for the function f (x) = x2 – 8x + 12 on (2, 6).

differentiable and continuous (i) and (ii) conditions of Rolle's theorem is satisfied.

f (2) = 22 – 8 (2) + 12 = 0

f (6) = 36 - 48 + 12 = 0

⇒ f (2) = f (3)

f '(x) = 2x – 8

derivative at x = 0 belongs to (-1,1).Hence Rolle's theorem is not applicable for this

function.

Example3: Verify Rolle's theorem for the function f(x) = tanx in [0,π].

The function f(x) = tanx is not continuous throughout the interval [0,π]. Since tanx → ∞

(c) f ( x) = x ( x + 3)c − 2 x in [-3,0].

(2) The curve represented by the parabola x 2 = 4y follows Rolle's theorem in [-1,1]

Lecture 6:

The Mean Value Theorem is one of the most important theoretical tools in Calculus. It

states that if f(x) is defined and continuous on the interval [a,b] and differentiable on

(a,b), then there is at least one number c in the interval (a,b) (that is a < c < b) such that

The special case, when f(a) = f(b) is known as Rolle's Theorem. In this case, we have f

'(c) =0. In other words, there exists a point in the interval (a,b) which has a horizontal

tangent. In fact, the Mean Value Theorem can be stated also in terms of slopes. Indeed,

the number

is the slope of the line passing through (a,f(a)) and (b,f(b)). So the conclusion of the

Mean Value Theorem states that there exists a point c (a,b)such that the tangent line is

parallel to the line passing through (a,f(a)) and (b,f(b)). (see Picture)

Example1. Let f ( x) = , a = -1and b=1. We have

x

So the equation

does not have a solution in c. This does not contradict the Mean Value Theorem, since

f(x) is not even continuous on [-1,1].

Remark. It is clear that the derivative of a constant function is 0. But you may wonder

whether a function with derivative zero is constant. The answer is yes. Indeed, let f(x) be

a differentiable function on an interval I, with f '(x) =0, for every xε I . Then for any a and

b in I, the Mean Value Theorem implies

Thus f(b) = f(a) for any aand b in I, which means that f(x) is constant

Theorem1: If f(x) is differentiable in [a,b] and f ' ( x) = 0 for all xε [ a, b] then f(x) is

constant in [a,b].

Theorem2: If f:[a,b]→R be such that f(x) is continuous in [a,b] and f '(x) ≥0 in (a,b)

then f(x) is non-decreasing in [a,b].
