If the function f(x) is continuous and if f(a) < f(b) , then there exists at least one value c such that f(a)<f(c)<f(b) where a < c < b

Consider the function x^3-2x-3

f(1) =1^3-2*1-3 =1-2-3=-4

f(2) =2^3-2*2-3 =8-4-3=1

There exists a c between 1 and 2 such that f(c)=0

In fact that value is 1.8934
