a) True
b) False

Explanation: According to Lagrange’s mean value theorem, if f : [a,b] → R is a function such that f is differentiable on (a,b) then there exists a least point c ∈ (a,b) such that f’(c) = $$\frac {f(b)-f(a)}{b-a}$$. This shows Function f is differentiable on [a,b].

11. Lagrange’s mean value theorem is also called as _____
a) Euclid’s theorem
b) Rolle’s theorem
c) a special case of Rolle’s theorem
d) the mean value theorem

Explanation: Lagrange’s mean value theorem is also called the mean value theorem and Rolle’s theorem is just a special case of Lagrange’s mean value theorem when f(a) = f(b).

12. Rolle’s theorem is a special case of _____
a) Euclid’s theorem
b) another form of Rolle’s theorem
c) Lagrange’s mean value theorem
d) Joule’s theorem

Explanation: Rolle’s theorem is just a special case of Lagrange’s mean value theorem when f(a) = f(b) and Lagrange’s mean value theorem is also called the mean value theorem.

13. Is Rolle’s theorem applicable to f(x) = tan x on [ $$\frac {\pi }{4}, \frac {5\pi }{4}$$ ]?
a) Yes
b) No

Explanation: Given function is f(x) = tan x on [ $$\frac {\pi }{4}, \frac {5\pi }{4}$$ ]
F(x) = tan x is not defined at x on [ $$\frac {\pi }{4}, \frac {5\pi }{4}$$ ]
So, f(x) is not continuous on [ $$\frac {\pi }{4}, \frac {5\pi }{4}$$ ].
Hence, Rolle’s theorem is not applicable.

14. What is the formula for Lagrange’s theorem?
a) f’(c) = $$\frac {f(a)+f(b)}{b-a}$$
b) f’(c) = $$\frac {f(b)-f(a)}{b-a}$$
c) f’(c) = $$\frac {f(a)+f(b)}{b+a}$$
d) f’(c) = $$\frac {f(a)-f(b)}{b+a}$$

Explanation: According to Lagrange’s mean value theorem, if f : [a,b] → R is a function such that f is differentiable on (a,b) then the formula for Lagrange’s theorem is f’(c) = $$\frac {f(b)-f(a)}{b-a}$$.

15. Find ’C’ using Lagrange’s mean value theorem, if f(x) = ex, a = 0, b = 1.
a) ee-1
b) e-1
c) log$$_e^{e+1}$$
d) log$$_e^{e-1}$$

Explanation: Given f(x) = ex, a = 0, b = 1
f’(c) = $$\frac {f(b)-f(a)}{b-a}$$
ec = $$\frac {e-1}{1-0}$$
ec = e – 1
C = log$$_e^{e-1}$$
