b)using the mean value theorom or rolle's theorom - no other methods will be accepted - prove carefully that x^3 + 9x^2 + 33x takes on the value -8 at most once

determine the domain and range of the function and conclude.

b.

Prove by contradiction:

assume that there are two or more values of x for which f(x1)=-8 and f(x2)=-8, where x1<x2.

Consider the interval [x1,x2], and apply Rolle's theorem or the mean value theorem to see if it is possible to find such x1, x2.
