1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For what values of a,m, and b does the function satisfy the hypothesis of the Mean Value Theorem of the interval [0,2]. 2. Relevant equations (f(b) - f(a))/(b-a) = f'(c) 3. The attempt at a solution So, I wanted to make a point of continuity for the whole equation. So, I set the equation to x=1 in both cases and then equated them, and got; 2+a=m+b ---> a=m+b-2 Then, I found the derivative of the original equation and set x again to 1, then equated the two given that were diffable, and got; m+b=1+a Now I can't get any values for a,b, or m without getting: 3=0 I must be doing something wrong.
