By the Mean Value Theorem, we know there exists a c in the open interval (35) such that f(c) is equal to this mean slope. For this problem, there is only one c that works. Find it.

I NEED C

PLEASE HELP

**nobody**, Tuesday, July 13, 2010 at 2:11pmdifferentiate f(x) -> f'(x)=3/sqrt(x)(double check) and supposingly that has at least one value equal to mean slope:(6sqrt(5)-6sqrt(3))/2 hence you want to solve: 3/sqrt(x) = (6sqrt(5)-6sqrt(3))/2.

Solve this and you will get x=some value. Put the x=some value back to the original function to get y and you get C (x,y).
