A. Find the local maximum and minimum values of F (x) in the interval [0,9]
B. Determine whether F(x) satisfies al the conditions of MVT in the interval [0,9]. If f(x) satisfies the condition of MVT determine the 'c' value that satisfies the conclusion of the MVT otherwise state why f(x) does not satisfy the condition of mean value theorem.

#### Solution Preview

1) Let F(x) = 2√X - X

A. Find the local maximum and minimum values of f (x) in the interval [0,9]
f'(x) = 1/√x - 1 = 0
Therefore, x = 1
Clearly the local maximum exists at x = 1. The local minimum I sat x = 0.

B. Determine whether F(x) satisfies al the conditions of MVT in the interval [0,9]. If f(x) satisfies the condition of MVT determine the 'c' value that satisfies the conclusion of the MVT otherwise state why f(x) does not satisfy the condition of mean value theorem.
