Step 1

Refer to the question we need to find the possible largest value of f(3) provided with the following information.

Step 2

Here apply the Mean value Theorem which states that if f(x) is defined and continuous on the interval [a,b] and differentiable on (a.b) then there is at least one number c in the interval (a,b) that is a < c < b such that,

Step 3

So us the above formula to ...
