Mean Value Theorem

I was given this question on an assignment and I am lost on how to answer it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Use the mean value theorem to show that |sin(a) - sin(b)| < |a - b| for all a and b.

What does the mean value theorem say, and what happens if you apply the mean value theorem on $f(x) = \sin(x)$.
Thanks from Country Boy
