Subjective
Suppose $$f(x)$$ is a function satisfying the following conditions
(a) $$f(0)=2,f(1)=1$$,
(b) $$f$$has a minimum value at $$x=5/2$$, and
(c) for all $$x$$, $$$f'\left( x \right) = \matrix{ {2ax} & {2ax - 1} & {2ax + b + 1} \cr b & {b + 1} & { - 1} \cr {2\left( {ax + b} \right)} & {2ax + 2b + 1} & {2ax + b} \cr } $$$
where $$a,b$$ are some constants. Determine the constants $$a, b$$ and the function $$f(x)$$.

Answer

$$a = {1 \over 4},\,\,b = - {5 \over 4}$$
$$f\left( x \right) = {1 \over 4}{x^2} - {5 \over 4}x + 2$$
