Let $f:[a,b] \to \mathbb{R}^2$ be a continuous curve on the plane.

Question:Are there numbers $a \leq x \leq c \leq y \le b$ such that $$(c-a)f(x)+(b-c)f(y) = \int_a^b f(t) \, dt \ ?$$

In other words, is there a Riemann sum with two terms that hits the bull's-eye?

**EDIT:** Prompted by a down-vote, maybe I should give some **motivation:**

It's not difficult to convince oneself (but not completely trivial to prove (*)) that the barycenter $\frac{1}{b-a}\int_a^b f(t) \, dt$ is a convex combination of **two** values of $f$, say $f(x)$ and $f(y)$ with $x<y$. But this doesn't answer my question, because depending on the weights we may be unable to find the partition point $c$.

For curves in $\mathbb{R}^n$, I could ask if there is a Riemann sum with $n$ terms that hits the bull's-eye, but dimension $n=2$ already seems tricky enough.

(*) *Footnote:* A theorem of Korobkov [1], improving a theorem of McLeod [2], says that if $F: [a,b] \to \mathbb{R}^n$ is continuous on $[a,b]$ and differentiable on $(a,b)$ then $\frac{F(b)-F(a)}{b-a}$ is a convex combination of $n$ values of the derivative $F'$ (which is not necessarily continuous).
