# Integration Proof

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Prove if f is integrable on [a,b] then $$\exists c$$ $$a\leq c \leq b$$ so that $$\int_a^cf = \int_c^bf$$

3. The attempt at a solution
I know that you have to use the first fundamental theorem of calculus and start with:
$$g(x) = \int_a^xf(t)dt-\int_x^bf(t)dt$$

I'm not sure how to get started and to use this fact to help prove it. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks!

g(x) is a continuous function, right? Use the intermediate value theorem. What are g(a) and g(b)?
