The Intermediate Value Theorem 2008-09-16 From A.:When dealing with the intermediate value theorem you have the function x^2. It bounces on the axis so you can't tell if lies on the interval [a,b]. So is the ivt proven false or does the ivt not tell you all the roots for sure.Answered by Harley Weston.     Overlapping circles 2002-05-29 From Naman:There are two circles, big circle with radius R and small one with radius r. They intersect and overlap in such a way that the common area formed is 1/2 pi r 2 (half the area of the small circle) If r=1, find the Radius of the big circle (R)?Answered by Harley Weston.
