# Using the Intermediate Value Theorem Use the Intermediate Value Theorem to show that f ( x ) = x 2 + x − 2 has at least two zeros in the interval [ − 3 , 3 ] .

To determine

To Prove: show that the function f(x)=x2+x2 has at least two zeros in the interval [3,3] to use the Intermediate value theorem.

Explanation

Given: f(x)=x2+x2 and the interval [3,3]

Proof:

the given function f(x)=x2+x2, f is continuous on the closed interval [3,1], As f(3)=(3)2+(3)2=4 and f(1)=(1)2+(1)2=2.So f(3)>0 and f(1)<0.

Appling the Intermediate value theorem concludes that there must be some c in [3,1], such that f(c)=0, hence f has a zero in the closed interval [3,1]
