# Real analysis : Lipschitz Criterion

Not what you're looking for?

A function f:A->R is Lipschitz on A if there exists an M>0 such that Absolute value of f(x)-f(y)/x-y <=M for all x,y belong to A. show that if f is differentiable on a closed interval [a,b] and if f' is continous on [a,b] then f is Lipschtiz on [a,b].
Geomtrically speaking, a function f is Lipschitz if there is a uniform bound on the magnitude of the slopes of lines drawn through any two points on the graph of f.

• "Your solution, looks excellent. I recognize things from previous chapters. I have seen the standard deviation formula you used to get 5.154. I do understand the Central Limit Theorem needs the sample size (n) to be greater than 30, we have 100. I do understand the sample mean(s) of the population will follow a normal distribution, and that CLT states the sample mean of population is the population (mean), we have 143.74. But when and WHY do we use the standard deviation formula where you got 5.154. WHEN & Why use standard deviation of the sample mean. I don't understand, why don't we simply use the "100" I understand that standard deviation is the square root of variance. I do understand that the variance is the square of the differences of each sample data value minus the mean. But somehow, why not use 100, why use standard deviation of sample mean? Please help explain."
