# The point on the parabola y=(x-3)^2 that is near to the origin?

Let:

be the squared distance of a point of the plane from the origin.

We can look for the local minimum by solving the equation:

- Given the function #f(x)=(x^2-9)/(3x)#, how do you determine whether f satisfies the hypotheses of the Mean Value Theorem on the interval [1,4] and find the c?
- What are the local extrema of #f(x)= 1/x-1/x^3+x^5-x#?
- Can the mean value theorem be applied to #f(x) = 2(sqrt x) + x# on the interval [1,4]?
- How do you find the intervals of increasing and decreasing using the first derivative given #y=(x-1)^2(x+3)#?
- How do you determine if rolles theorem can be applied to #f(x) = 2x^2 − 5x + 1# on the interval [0,2] and if so how do you find all the values of c in the interval for which f'(c)=0?
