So f(x) is defined as f(x) = x if x is rational, and 0 if x is irrational. Using a sequential argument I need to show that if c=/=0, then f does not have a limit.
I am making 2 cases.
1) c is a rational number.
Then I can make two sequences. One sequence of rationals and another of irrationals. I let for all in the naturals, which is a sequence of rationals. Then I let which is a sequence of irrationals.
My idea is to show that since the two sequences have different limit values at c, then f(x) can't have a limit at c.
2)c is an irrational number. Here to make a sequence of irrational numbers, I let but I cannot figure out how to create a sequence of rational numbers in the same fashion. Can anyone help me find this??
And also is this a correct approach to the problem. Thanks!
