Homework Help: Is this the right course for this kind of questions

  1. Nov 14, 2008 #1
    i found this calculus course:

    http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/Mathematics/18-01Fall-2006/VideoLectures/index.htm

    does it consists with theoretical knowledge of solving question like this:

    there is a function f(x) which is continues in the borders [a,b]
    and derivitable in the borders (a,b), b>a>0
    alpha differs 0
    prove the there is b>c>a

    in that formula:

    i never encoutered this kind of questions
    and in this MIT calculus course i searched their exams and there is no such question
    there are only normal calculus material regarding derivatives ,limits,aproximations
    but i cant see this sort of complicated proving questions
    ??
