Can this problem be solved? I made up the problem myself so I am not sure a solution exists.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It is known that:

[tex] h(0) = 0 [/tex]

[tex] h'(0) < 0 [/tex]

[tex] h'' > 0 [/tex]

Prove that there exists a value [itex]c > 0[/itex] such that [itex] h(c)=0 [/itex]

It makes sense visually. I have tried applying the MVDT/IVT in various ways, but its not hitting me. Perhaps someone can start me off?
