Consdier f(x)=2x3+3x2-36x. Determine whether the Mean Value Theorem can be applied to f on [-2,2]. If the Mean Value Theorem can be applied, find all value(s) of c in the open interval (-2,2) that satisfies the theorem. 

I'm having trouble finding the value of c. How do I find it using this theorem?
