# Math Help - Subspace topology

1. ## Subspace topology

(a)Let K={1/n ∈ R| n∈Z+} Show that the standard topology on K is the discrete topology.
(b) Let K*=K union {0}. Show that the standard topology on K* is not the discrete topology.

2. ## Definition

A) take a point in K, find a neighborhood about it which does not intersect anything else in K. let $\frac{1}{n}\in K$, consider $d = 1/2 [ 1/n - 1/(n+1)]$ and let $U=(1/n-d, 1/n +d)$

B) Try to find an open neighborhood about 0 that doesn't intersect K... Good luck, as the limit as n goes to infinity of the harmonic (1/n) is 0, so it is a limit point.
