Differentiability

If \(f(x)\) is a polynomial satisfying relation \(f(x)=\dfrac{k}{k+1}\) for \({k=1,2,3,\ldots,100}\) except \(k=a\) where \(a\) is a natural numbers and belongs to \((0,100)\) and \(f(101)=1\).Find \(\dfrac{1-f(a)}{f'(a)}\) .

Try reading the first section of polynomial interpolation - remainder factor theorem.

Addendum: Oh wait... this problem is not as easy as it looks. Give me one moment to think about this...

Several issues with your problem

  1. There are multiple polynomials that satisfy the conditions since we can add \( A (x-1)(x-2)\ldots (x-101) \). This suggests that you want the degree to be 100.
  2. The condition should be \( f(k) = \frac{k}{k+1} \) instead?
