Let X, Y be metric spaces and f: X->Y be a continous function on the indicated metric spaces. Prove the followings.

(a) For each subset A of X,

(b) For each subset B of Y,

In my text, "int A" denotes theinteriorof A, which is the set of all interior points of A. A point x in A is aninterior pointof A, or A isneighborhoodof x, provided that there is an open set O which contains x and is contained in A.
