Intermediate Value Theorem
Understand and Apply the Intermediate Value Theorem
Find the smallest integer a such that the Intermediate Value Theorem guarantees that f(x) has a zero on the interval [O, a].
f(x) = 2,'-3x2 + x-5
Provide your answer below:
The function is f(x)=2x3-3x2+x-5.
Observe that the given function is a polynomial and thus it is continuous over the closed interval [0,a].
