Question 69:



We have,

(i) is continuous function.

[Since every polynomial function is a continuous function]

Hence, is continuous in


which exists everywhere except at

Hence, is continuous in


Conditions of Rolle՚s theorem are satisfied.

Hence, there exists a real number c such that

Hence, Rolle՚s theorem has been verified.

Question 70:

Discuss the applicability of Rolle՚s theorem on the function given by



First of all, Conditions of Rolle՚s theorem are:

(a) is continuous at

(b) is derivable at


If all three conditions are satisfied then there exist some in such that

Condition 1:



Hence, condition is satisfied.

Condition 2:

Now, we have to check is differentiable

On differentiating with respect to , we get


Now, let us consider the differentiability of

is not differentiable at

Thus, Rolle՚s Theorem is not applicable to the given function.
