Homework Statement



prove that if f is continuously differentiable on a closed interval E, then f is Lipschitz continuous on E.

The Attempt at a Solution



so I'm letting E be [a,b]

I'm using the mean value theorem to show secant from a->b = some value, then I'm saying if I subtract epsilon from b over and over, the mean value theorem will still be valid because its continuously differentiable. So in the end I will have secant from any x to y is some value and therefore the entire function is lipschitz continuous.

Seem good?

You are correct in using the mean value theorem, but your steps are not clear. Write them out. What is the definition of a Lipschitz map? You must use the fact that f is continuously differentiable in your proof. That is, f ' is continuous.
