**MathMate**, Friday, October 15, 2010 at 10:23pmThe intermediate value theorem states that a function f(x) continuous on the interval [a,b] takes on every value between f(a) and f(b).

In the given case, a=-1, b=1, f(a)=4, and f(b)=3. π=3.14159.... lies between 4 and 3.

Therefore the statement "there exists a number r such that |r| < 1 and f(r) = π" is ______.
