okay. We know the four through of one plus two acts. Amino X zero gives us one there for the derivative would be 1/2 times one plus. If you plug in zero, we end up with 1/2. Therefore, we have the four through of one plus two. Axe equals one plus 1/2 axe. Therefore verifying this We know we have 0.1 is less than the four through of done pushed you axe on a swan. And this 1/2 acts, which is less than 0.1. Therefore we have 0.9 is less than four through of one plus two acts minus 1/2 axe. Just lost them 1.1. So we have. Why's your 0.9? White is 1.1 to the values would be between the of 0.3689 and 0.6777
