For the function the value of c for mean value theorem is
A. 1

B.

C. 2

D. None of these

Answer :

Mean Value Theorem states that, Let f : [a, b] R be a continuous function on [a, b] and differentiable on (a, b). Then there exists some c in (a, b) such that



We have,


Since, f(x) is a polynomial function it is continuous on [1,3] and differentiable on (1,3).


Now, as per Mean value Theorem, there exists at least one c (1,3), such that





3(c2 – 1) = 2c2


3c2 – 2c2 = 3


c2 = 3
