1. ## measurable functions

Let f and g be measurable functions from X to the extended reals. Prove that the sets

A={x:f(x)<g(x)}
and
B={x:f(x)=g(x)}
are measurable.

And then prove that the set of points at which a sequence of measurable real valued functions converges is measurable.

To show that A is measurable I am trying to work with intersections. I know that f is measurable iff {(a,inf]} is measurable for all a in R. Similarly for g. Can I simply take the intersection of such sets to get A? Is the intersection of measurable sets measurable?

Can I do something similar for B?

Assuming A and B are measurable, I suppose I have to use that to show the second part of the question, but I dont see how.

2. 1) Given the sigma algebra (the collection of measurable sets), $A$, then if $X,Y\in A$ you have that $X^c,Y^c\in A$. Next $X\cap Y=\left(X^c\cup Y^c\right)^c$. So $X\cap Y\in A$.

2) Let $E_(n,m,k)=\left\{x:|f_n(x)-f_m(x)|<\frac{1}{k}\right\}$. Then $\bigcap_{k=1}^\infty\bigcup_{N=1}^\infty\bigcap_{n =N}^\infty\bigcap_{m=N}^\infty E(n,m,k)$ is measurable. Now just show it is the same as the set of points where $f_n$ converges. Oh and you need to justify that $E(n,m,k)$, and the final set (with the intersections and unions) are both measurable.

3. For set A,try this A= $\bigcup_{r\in Q}(\{x:f(x)r\})$,Q is the set of rational numbers.
set B can be expressed as $\{x:f(x)\le g(x)\} \bigcap \{x:g(x)\le f(x)\}$
And then prove that the set of points at which a sequence of measurable real valued functions converges is measurable.
The required set is $\{x:lim inf f_n(x)=lim sup f_n(x)\}$ where it follows that $lim inf f_n$ and $lim sup f_n$are measurable functions.
