note: a hint to part a) is that the previous question (which i solved) was to prove f is differentiable at 0 if f(x)=(x^2) for rational x and f(x)=0 for irrational x. I don't think I fully understand the connection to this problem--again, any conceptual help would be much appreciated.

a) let g be a function such that lg(x)l <or= (x^2) for all x. Prove that g is differentiable at 0.

b) this result can be generalized if (x^2) is replaced by lf(x)l where f has what property?
