Abstract: Let $ n$ be a positive integer and $ F$ a function defined on a closed interval $ I$. For $ x$ in $ I$, let the $ n$th approximate Peano derivative of $ F$ at $ x$, if it exists, be denoted as $ {F_{(n)}}(x)$. For $ n = 1$, the existence of $ {F_{(n - 1)}}(x)$ will simply mean that the function $ {F_{(0)}}( \equiv F)$ is approximately continuous at $ x$. Then the following theorem is proved, noting that the phrase ``for nearly all $ x$ in $ I$'' means ``for all $ x$ in $ I$ except perhaps for those points in a countable subset of $ I$", Theorem $ {{\mathbf{A}}_n}$. Let $ {F_{(n - 1)}}(x)$ exist finitely for all $ x$ in $ I$. If $ {F_{(n)}}(x)$ exists finitely for nearly all $ x$ in $ I$ and is summable on $ I$, then $ {F_{(n - 1)}}$ is absolutely continuous in $ I$.
