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 $f(x) = \sin(x)$.
