if a functionfiscontinuouson theclosed interval[a,b], wherea<b, and differentiable on theopen interval(a,b), then there exists a pointcin (a,b) such that

 f'(c) = \frac{f(b) - f(a)}{b-a} \, .
f(-1)=1 and f(1)=1, but the function is not differentiable at x=0, f'(0-)=-1 and f'(0+)=1, and we cant apply mean value theorem on this function.

f(1)=f(-1)=0 f`(0-)=d(-x)/dx=-1 f`(0+)=d(x)/dx=1 the function is not differential between -1 and 1 hence, the mean value theorem can`t be applied. Sher Mohammad B.Tech, IIT Delhi
