Hi can someone please help me with the following question:
i know and understand the definition of a metric space:
I can prove easily M1 and M2 but M3 is giving me problems. Can someone please help me.
M1: e(p,p)=0 by defintion.
e(p,q)>0 if p does not equal to q
M2: e(p,q)= (lpl+lql)=(lql+lpl)=e(q,p)
M3: really need help
Is this what you mean?
\varsigma (x,y) \leqslant \varsigma (x,z) + \varsigma (z,y) [/tex]
yes i am finding it difficult to prove this. Can you please help me.
Can you explain where you are having trouble?
i don't understand how the case if x=y but not z still holds
Is this true:
What if you were to add those together?
Thanks for the help. It made my life much easier.
Remarkable! Hey, Plato, can you make my life much easier?
