It's easy to show that is not only continuous, but uniformly continuous on every closed segment . Indeed, fix a and assume . We have

(this is checked by multiplying the right-hand side). The second factor in the right-hand side has terms and . Therefore, . The expression is a constant for each fixed , so a small variation in produces only a small variation in . It's easy to turn this into an proof. - August 29th 2013, 10:10 AMHartlwRe: Real analysis - continuity of a function
It also follows from f(x)g(x) is conntinuous if f(x) and g(x) are.
