**I 'm not quiet sure what the question means by saying "show", What do I have to show? I appreciate your guidance and hints...**

My attempt at (a);

If [tex]m \leq f(x) \leq M [/tex] on [a,b] then http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/9103/indexd3wi0.gif [Broken]

We have

m = [tex](\sqrt{1 + 8}) = 3[/tex]

M = [tex](\sqrt{0 + 8}) = 2.8[/tex]

a = 1

b = 0

Thanks.
