has no root c satisfying c > 0. Hint: Note that x = 0 is a root and apply Rolle's Theorem.

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 3$\text{\underline{Theorem 4 Rolle's Theorem:}}$\ Assume that f is continuous on [a, b] and differentiable on (a,b). if $f(a)=f(b)$ then there exists a number c between a and b such that $f'(c)=0$
