Help: Functions

If \(f:\mathbb R\longrightarrow \mathbb R\) satisfying \(\left| f\left( x \right) -f\left( y \right) \right| \le { \left| x-y \right| }^{ 3 }\), for all \(x,y\in \mathbb R\) and \(f\left( 2 \right) =5\), then find \(f\left( 4 \right)\).

I replaced x by x+h and y by x and took \(\lim_{x\rightarrow0}\) i.e \[|\lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\dfrac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}|\leq0\] and since Modulus of a real no. cannot be less than 0, we get
\[f'(x)=0 \Rightarrow f(x)=Constant=C(let)\] And since f(2)=5 \(\Rightarrow \) f(x)=5..
Or f(4)=5.
Maybe I have done some mistake as I am lacking time at the moment.. Anyways can you find the error?? Rishabh Cool · 7 months, 1 week ago

@Rishabh Cool Pretty much did the same thing, seems like they misprinted the answer. Thanks for solving. Akhilesh Prasad · 7 months, 1 week ago
