## Homework Statement

f(x) is an injective function (1 to 1) and continuous in [a, b], and f(a) < f(b). Show that the

range of f is the interval [f(a), f(b)]

## Homework Equations

Intermediate Value Theorem

## The Attempt at a Solution

We are asked to use the intermediate value theorem to prove it. However, it seems to me that the proposition is false.

Suppose f(x) = x, a = 0, b = 1. f(x) is 1 to 1, continuous in [a,b] and f(a) < f(b), but its range is (-inf, inf), not [0, 1].

Am I reading this question wrong??
