Bolzano's theorem states that if
is a continuous function in the closed interval
with
and
of opposite sign, then there is a
in the open interval
such that

SNAPSHOTS
DETAILS
Snapshot 1: The function is positive in the interval and therefore
for all
in
.
Snapshot 2: The function is negative in the interval so
for all
in
.
Snapshot 3: The function is positive for
and negative for
, therefore there is a
in
such that
