    Thank you,

    the problem is given below.

    What is the greatest value of b for which any real valued function f that satisfies the following properties mus also satisfy f(1)<5

    i) f is infinitively differentiable on the real numbers.
    ii)f(0)=1, f'(0)=1, f"(0)=2
    iii)|f'''(x)|<b for all x in [0,1]

    I would suggest looking at the Taylor series with the remainder in the form using the Mean Value Theorem, which ever one that is.
