The reason for this is simple: Computer arithmetic is generally inexact, and while the errors that are made are very small, they can accumulate under some circumstances and actually dominate the calculation. Thus, we need to understand computer arithmetic well enough to anticipate and deal with this phenomenon. Most computer languages use what is called floating-point arithmetic. Although the details differ from machine to machine, the basic idea is the same. Every number is A PRIMER ON COMPUTER ARITHMETIC 21 represented using a (fixed, finite) number of binary digits, usually called bits.

A function is called monotone on an interval if its derivative is strictly positive or strictly negative on the interval. Suppose / is continuous and monotone on the interval [a, b], and /(a)/(6) < 0; prove that there is exactly one value a 6 [a,b] such that / ( a ) = 0. 26. 5) by writing up the argument in the case that g is negative. 27. 6, providing all details. 28. Let Cfc > 0 be given, 1 < k < n, and let Xfc 6 [a, b], 1 < k < n. Then, use the Discrete Average Value Theorem to prove that, for any function / e C([a, b]), U±«JM = m for some ξ € [a,b], 29.

What is its Taylor polynomial of degree n, about an arbitrary xo? 22. The Fresnel integrals are defined as C(x) = [ Jo cos(nt2/2)dt and S{x) = I sin(7rf2 /2)dt. Jo Use Taylor expansions to find approximations to C(x) and S(x) that are 1 0 - 4 accurate for all x with |x| < \. Hint: Substitute x = π ί 2 / 2 into the Taylor expansions for the cosine and sine. 23. 2) (usually called the Cauchy form). 14 INTRODUCTORY CONCEPTS AND CALCULUS REVIEW 24. For each function in Problem 11, use the Mean Value Theorem to find a value M such that \f{xi)-f(x2)\
