Thanks in advance Let f and g be two differentiable functions on (0, 1) such that f(0) = 2, f(1) = 6, g(0) = 0 and g(1) = 2. Then there exists ? ? (0, 1) such that f'(?) equals (a) (1/2)g'(?), (b) 2g'(?), (c) 6g'(?), (d) (1/6)g'(?). If f(1) = 0, f'(x) > f(x) for all x > 1, then f(x) is (a) positive valued for all x > 1, (b) negative valued for all x > 1, (c) positive valued on (1, 2) but negative valued on [2,?). (d) None of these. For all x, y ? (0, ?), a function f: (0, ?) --> R satisfies the inequality |f(x) - f(y)| ? cube(|x - y|). Then f is (a) an increasing function (b) a decreasing function (c) a constant function (d) None of these.

Cauchy's mean value theorem:

$\frac{f'(\theta)}{g'(\theta)}\,=\,\frac{f( 1)\,-\,f(0)}{g(1)\,-\,g(0)}\,=\,2 \\
\Rightarrow\,f'(\theta)\,=\,2g'(\theta),\, g'(\theta)\,\ne\,0$

$f'(1)\,\gt\,f(1)\,=\,0\,\Rightarrow\,f(x)\text { is positive valued for all }x\,>\,1$

We are just given that f'(x)>f(x) for all x>1.. how did you say that f'(1)>f(1)?? Please reply. And I would be very grateful to anyone who can help me with the 3rd question as well..
