Cauchy's mean value theorem
Cauchy's mean value theorem is a generalization of the mean value theorem that looks at two functions instead of just one:
If f and g are functions that are
1.continuous on the closed interval [a, b], and
2.differentiable on the open interval (a, b),
then there is a number c in (a, b) for which
The theorem is named after Augustin Cauchy (1789--1867).
