Finding a Fixed Point

  1. Jul 5, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I started looking at this problem and I think I am going to have to use the intermediate value theorem for this proof, but I am not quite sure. I started looking at possible examples of these functions, but I know this is not good enough for proofs.

    Check out the Banach fixed point theorem.
