Looks to me like a variation of Rolle's theorem.

Two cases: either

f(a) < 0, f(b) > 0

or

f(a) > 0, f(b) < 0

Given f(x) is continuous from a to b, it must not jump. And yet it must cross 0 in order to go from <0 to >0 (or the other way around). Therefore it must at some point equal 0.

Is this proof valid?

I would like to get a more Rigour proof

i'm not the best at writing proofs, sorry
