We are given a function \(f(x)\), for which the right derivative
\[f'_+(x) = \lim_{h\rightarrow 0^+}\frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}\]
is defined in \(\Bbb R\). We also know...

Consider a circle and a point \(P\) inside it. We know that the minimum distance between \(P\) and the points on the circumference is \(2\) cm, while the maximum distance is...
