5

Case I: *c*
< 5

Then, *f
*(*c*)
= 5 − *c*

Therefore, *f*
is continuous at all real numbers less than 5.

Case II : *c*
= 5

Then,

Therefore, *f
*is continuous at *x*
= 5

Case III: *c*
> 5

Therefore, *f*
is continuous at all real numbers greater than 5.

Hence,* f *is
continuous at every real number and therefore, it is a continuous

10, we obtain

On subtracting equation (1) from equation (2), we obtain

8*a*
= 16

⇒ *a*
= 2

By
putting *a*
= 2 in equation (1), we obtain

2 ×
2 + *b* = 5

⇒ 4
+ *b* = 5

⇒ *b*
= 1

Therefore,
the values of *a*
and *b* for
which* f* is
a continuous function are 2 and 1 respectively.

#### Question 31:

Show
that the function defined by* f *(*x*)
= cos (*x*^{2})
is a continuous function.

#### Answer:

The
given function is *f
*(*x*)
= cos (*x*^{2})

This
function *f*
is defined for every real number and *f*
can be written as the composition of two functions as,

*f*
= *g o h*,
where *g*
(*x*) = cos
*x* and *h*
(*x*) = *x*^{2}

It
has to be first proved that *g
*(*x*)
= cos *x*
and *h* (*x*)
= *x*^{2}
are continuous functions.

It
is evident that *g*
is defined for every real number.

Let
*c* be a
real number.

Then,
*g* (*c*)
= cos *c*

Therefore,
*g* (*x*)
= cos *x* is
continuous function.

*h*
(*x*) = *x*^{2}

Clearly,
*h* is
defined for every real number.

Let
*k* be a
real number, then* h *(*k*)
= *k*^{2}

Therefore,
*h* is a
continuous function.

It
is known that for real valued functions
*g *and
*h*,such that (*g
*o *h*)
is defined at *c*,
if *g *is
continuous at *c *and
if *f *is
continuous at *g *(*c*),
then (*f *o
*g*)
is continuous at *c*.

Therefore, is a continuous function.

#### Question 32:

Show that the function defined by is a continuous function.

#### Answer:

The given function is

This
function *f*
is defined for every real number and *f*
can be written as the composition of two functions as,

*f*
= *g o h*,
where

It has to be first proved that are continuous functions.

Clearly,
*g* is
defined for all real numbers.

Let
*c* be a
real number.

Case I:

Therefore,
*g* is
continuous at all points *x*,
such that* x *<
0

Case II:

Therefore,
*g* is
continuous at all points *x*,
such that* x*
> 0

Case III:

Therefore,
*g* is
continuous at *x*
= 0

From
the above three observations, it can be
concluded that *g*
is continuous at all points.

*h
*(*x*)
= cos *x*

It
is evident that *h*
(*x*) = cos
*x* is
defined for every real number.

Let
*c *be a
real number. Put *x*
= *c* + *h*

If
*x* →
*c*, then *h*
→
0

*h
*(*c*)
= cos *c*

Therefore,
*h* (*x*)
= cos *x* is
a continuous function.

It
is known that for real valued functions
*g *and
*h*,such that (*g
*o *h*)
is defined at *c*,
if *g *is
continuous at *c *and
if *f *is
continuous at *g *(*c*),
then (*f *o
*g*)
is continuous at *c*.

Therefore, is a continuous function.

#### Question 33:

Examine that is a continuous function.

#### Answer:

This
function *f*
is defined for every real number and *f*
can be written as the composition of two functions as,

*f*
= *g o h*,
where

It has to be proved first that are continuous functions.

Clearly,
*g* is
defined for all real numbers.

Let
*c* be a
real number.

Case I:

Therefore,
*g* is
continuous at all points *x*,
such that* x *<
0

Case
II:

Therefore,
*g* is
continuous at all points *x*,
such that* x*
> 0

Case III:

Therefore,
*g* is
continuous at *x*
= 0

From
the above three observations, it can be
concluded that *g*
is continuous at all points.

*h
*(*x*)
= sin *x*

It
is evident that *h*
(*x*) = sin*
x* is defined for every real number.

Let
*c *be a
real number. Put *x*
= *c* + *k*

If
*x* →
*c*, then *k*
→
0

*h
*(*c*)
= sin *c*

Therefore,
*h* is a
continuous function.

It
is known that for real valued functions
*g *and
*h*,such that (*g
*o *h*)
is defined at *c*,
if *g *is
continuous at *c *and
if *f *is
continuous at *g *(*c*),
then (*f *o
*g*)
is continuous at *c*.

Therefore, is a continuous function.

#### Question 34:

Find
all the points of discontinuity of *f
*defined by.

#### Answer:

The given function is

The
two functions, *g*
and *h*, are
defined as

Then,
*f* = *g
*− *h*

The
continuity of *g*
and *h *is
examined first.

Clearly,
*g* is
defined for all real numbers.

Let
*c* be a
real number.

Case I:

Therefore,
*g* is
continuous at all points *x*,
such that* x *<
0

Case II:

Therefore,
*g* is
continuous at all points *x*,
such that* x*
> 0

Case III:

Therefore,
*g* is
continuous at *x*
= 0

From
the above three observations, it can be
concluded that *g*
is continuous at all points.

Clearly,
*h* is
defined for every real number.

Let
*c *be a
real number.

Case I:

Therefore,
*h* is
continuous at all points *x*,
such that* x *<
−1

Case II:

Therefore,
*h* is
continuous at all points *x*,
such that* x*
> −1

Case III:

Therefore,
*h* is
continuous at *x*
= −1

From
the above three observations, it can be
concluded that* h*
is continuous at all points of the real line.

*g*
and *h* are
continuous functions. Therefore, *f *=
*g* −
*h *is also
a continuous function.

Therefore,
*f *has no
point of discontinuity.

$\mathrm{Let}f\left(x\right)=\mathrm{sin}\left({x}^{2}+5\right),u\left(x\right)={x}^{2}+5,\mathrm{and}v\left(t\right)=\mathrm{sin}t$

$\mathrm{Then},\left(vou\right)=v\left(u\left(x\right)\right)=v\left({x}^{2}+5\right)=\mathrm{tan}\left({x}^{2}+5\right)=f\left(x\right)$

To check the
differentiability of the given function at *x* = 1,

consider the left hand

its domain if both

are finite and equal.

To check the
differentiability of the given function at *x* = 1, consider the
left hand limit of *f* at *x* = 1

Since the left and

#### Question 1:

Verify Rolle’s Theorem for the function

#### Answer:

The given function,, being a polynomial function, is continuous in [−4, 2] and is differentiable in (−4, 2).

∴ *f* (−4)
= *f* (2) = 0

⇒ The value of *f*
(*x*) at −4 and 2 coincides.

Rolle’s Theorem
states that there is a point *c* ∈
(−4, 2) such that

Hence, Rolle’s Theorem is verified for the given function.

#### Question 2:

(i)

(ii)

(iii)

#### Answer:

By Rolle’s Theorem, for a function, if

(a) *f* is
continuous on [*a*, *b*]

(b) *f* is
differentiable on (*a*, *b*)

(c) *f *(*a*)
= *f* (*b*)

then, there exists some
*c* ∈ (*a*, *b*)
such that

Therefore, Rolle’s Theorem is not applicable to those functions that do not satisfy any of the three conditions of the hypothesis.

(i)

It
is evident that the given function *f* (*x*) is not
continuous at every integral point.

In
particular, *f*(*x*) is not continuous at *x *= 5 and
*x *= 9

⇒
*f* (*x*) is not continuous in [5, 9].

The
differentiability of *f* in (5, 9) is checked as follows.

Let
*n *be an integer such that *n* ∈
(5, 9).

Since
the left and right hand limits of *f* at *x* = *n* are
not equal, *f* is not differentiable at *x* = *n*

∴*f
*is not differentiable in (5, 9).

It
is observed that *f* does not satisfy all the conditions of the
hypothesis of Rolle’s Theorem.

Hence, Rolle’s Theorem is not applicable for.

(ii)

It
is evident that the given function *f* (*x*) is not
continuous at every integral point.

In
particular, *f*(*x*) is not continuous at *x *= −2
and *x *= 2

⇒
*f* (*x*) is not continuous in [−2, 2].

The
differentiability of *f* in (−2, 2) is checked as follows.

Let
*n *be an integer such that *n* ∈
(−2, 2).

Since
the left and right hand limits of *f* at *x* = *n* are
not equal, *f* is not differentiable at *x* = *n*

∴*f
*is not differentiable in (−2, 2).

It
is observed that *f* does not satisfy all the conditions of the
hypothesis of Rolle’s Theorem.

Hence, Rolle’s Theorem is not applicable for.

(iii)

It
is evident that *f*, being a polynomial function, is continuous
in [1, 2] and is differentiable in (1, 2).

∴*f
*(1) ≠* f* (2)

It
is observed that *f* does not satisfy a condition of the
hypothesis of Rolle’s Theorem.

Hence, Rolle’s Theorem is not applicable for.

#### Question 3:

If is a differentiable function and if does not vanish anywhere, then prove that.

#### Answer:

It is given that is a differentiable function.

Since every differentiable function is a continuous function, we obtain

(a) *f* is
continuous on [−5, 5].

(b) *f *is
differentiable on (−5, 5).

Therefore, by the Mean
Value Theorem, there exists *c* ∈
(−5, 5) such that

It is also given that does not vanish anywhere.

Hence, proved.

#### Answer:

The given function is

*f*, being a
polynomial function, is continuous in [1, 4] and is differentiable in
(1, 4) whose derivative is 2*x* − 4.

Mean Value Theorem
states that there is a point *c* ∈
(1, 4) such that

Hence, Mean Value Theorem is verified for the given function.

#### Question 5:

Verify Mean Value Theorem, if
in the interval [*a*, *b*], where *a* = 1 and *b*
= 3. Find all

#### Answer:

The given function *f*
is

*f*, being a
polynomial function, is continuous in [1, 3] and is differentiable in
(1, 3) whose derivative is 3*x*^{2} − 10*x* −
3.

Mean Value Theorem
states that there exist a point *c* ∈
(1, 3) such that

Hence, Mean Value Theorem is verified for the given function and is the only point for which

#### Question 6:

Examine the applicability of Mean Value Theorem for all three functions given in the above exercise 2.

#### Answer:

Mean Value Theorem states that for a function, if

(a) *f* is
continuous on [*a*, *b*]

(b) *f* is
differentiable on (*a*, *b*)

then, there exists some
*c* ∈ (*a*, *b*)
such that

Therefore, Mean Value Theorem is not applicable to those functions that do not satisfy any of the two conditions of the hypothesis.

(i)

It
is evident that the given function *f* (*x*) is not
continuous at every integral point.

In
particular, *f*(*x*) is not continuous at *x *= 5 and
*x *= 9

⇒
*f* (*x*) is not continuous in [5, 9].

The
differentiability of *f* in (5, 9) is checked as follows.

Let
*n *be an integer such that *n* ∈
(5, 9).

Since
the left and right hand limits of *f* at *x* = *n* are
not equal, *f* is not differentiable at *x* = *n*

∴*f
*is not differentiable in (5, 9).

It
is observed that *f* does not satisfy all the conditions of the
hypothesis of Mean Value Theorem.

Hence, Mean Value Theorem is not applicable for .

(ii)

It
is evident that the given function *f* (*x*) is not
continuous at every integral point.

In
particular, *f*(*x*) is not continuous at *x *= −2
and *x *= 2

⇒
*f* (*x*) is not continuous in [−2, 2].

The
differentiability of *f* in (−2, 2) is checked as follows.

Let
*n *be an integer such that *n* ∈
(−2, 2).

Since
the left and right hand limits of *f* at *x* = *n* are
not equal, *f* is not differentiable at *x* = *n*

∴*f
*is not differentiable in (−2, 2).

It
is observed that *f* does not satisfy all the conditions of the
hypothesis of Mean Value Theorem.

Hence, Mean Value Theorem is not applicable for .

(iii)

It
is evident that *f*, being a polynomial function, is continuous
in [1, 2] and is differentiable in (1, 2).

It
is observed that *f* satisfies all the conditions of the
hypothesis of Mean Value Theorem.

Hence, Mean Value Theorem is applicable for.

It can be proved as follows.
