Suppose that \( f: [0,1] \rightarrow [0,1] \) is a continuous function satisfying \( f(0) = f(1) \). Show that there is a real number \( r \) such that \( f(r) = f( r + \frac{1}{2} ) \).

This is a list of Calculus proof based problems that I like. Please avoid posting complete solutions, so that others can work on it.

This means that there is \(r\in [0,1/2]\) such that : \(f(r)=f(r+1/2)\). – Haroun Meghaichi · 3 years, 2 months ago
