1. ## Unif. Continuity Again

If $\displaystyle f,g$ are unif. cont. on an interval $\displaystyle [a,b]$ and $\displaystyle g(x) \not= 0$ for $\displaystyle x \in [a,b]$, then $\displaystyle f/g$ is unif. cont. on $\displaystyle [a,b]$

Being able to get started correctly would be helpful. Thanks.

The interval $\displaystyle [a,b]$ is closed so any continious function is uniformally continuous.
First prove that $\displaystyle \frac{1}{g}$ is continuous.
Without loss of generally, we can assume that $\displaystyle g$ is positive on $\displaystyle [a,b]$.
Therefore, $\displaystyle \left( {\exists c \in [a,b]} \right)\left( {\forall x \in [a,b]} \right)\left[ {0 < g(c) \leqslant g(x)} \right]$, the low point theorem.
Now we have a bound on $\displaystyle \frac{1}{g}$.
