f(x) is continuous over the domain. [-3,3]

f(x) is differential.

f'(x) = 3x^{2} -9

f(x) has two equal value points on the independent axis.

f(-3) = f(3) = 0

Therefore Rolle's Theorem Applies

.: Exists c such that f'(c)=0

Solve for c:

0 = 3c^{2} - 9

Ahh! That's the answer I had but I was doubting it because my partner got something else! Thanks!
