According to Rolle's Theorem, what must be the velocity at some time in the interval (2, 3)?

ft/sec?

& Find that time t?

I believe i need to take the 1st derivative which is -32t+80 equal to zero so t=-80/32? and for ft/sec plug in 2 for t? Anyhow i get wrong answers so need help!

Now you need to plug in 2 into the orignal problem and get a resultant, then plug in three to the original problem as well. If they are the same resultant then they follow rolles theorem. There are some rules to this theorem like is it a continuous function, is it differentialable? Keep those things in mind because if you go on to Calculus 2, you will see these again in integratable series.
