Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would appreciate any assistance with the following question: Suppose f \in C^2[-1,1] is twice continuously differentiable. Prove that

|f'(0)|^2 \leq 4 ||f||_\infty (||f||_\infty + ||f''||_\infty), where ||f||_infty is the standard sup norm. At first I thought Taylor expansion seemed promising, but I am pretty stymied.

Thank you!
