Question 03 (c) 

ShortAnswer Questions. Questions 14 are shortanswer questions. Put your answers in the boxes provided. Simplify your answers as much as possible, and show your work. Each question is worth 3 marks, but not all questions are of equal difficulty.

Make sure you understand the problem fully: What is the question asking you to do? Are there specific conditions or constraints that you should take note of? How will you know if your answer is correct from your work only? Can you rephrase the question in your own words in a way that makes sense to you? 
If you are stuck, check the hints below. Read the first one and consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! If after a while you are still stuck, go for the next hint. 
Hint 1 

We need a theorem relating the following quantities Which theorem accomplishes this goal? 
Hint 2 

Try the mean value theorem which states that for our function in question, we have
for some c in the interval 
Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used all the hints, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Solution 

Found a typo? Is this solution unclear? Let us know here.
Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. By the mean value theorem, we have a constant c between 1 and 4 such that
Cross multiplying yields
Since , isolating for gives
Thus the largest value can be is 3.
