Here is a theorem:
If then . Can you prove that?
Your problem follows at once from that theorem.
i need help
Let (X,d) be a metric space. Let a be element of X. Define a function f: X -> R by f(x) = d(a,x) show tat f is a continuous function.
this is what I've done
abs( x-y) = d(x,y) leq d(x,a) + d(a,y) by triangle inequality thm < delta = epsilon.
now abs(f(x)-f(y)) = abs(d(a,x)-d(a,y)) leq d(x,a) + d(a,y) < epsilon
does this make any sense???
